What to expect from a high-end toilet

The first question that needs an answer is what can you expect from a high-end toilet

Premium design

First, you can expect a toilet with premium design. Of course design doesn’t add nothing to the functionality of the toilet, but makes it look modern and worth the spicy price.

You can expect the toilet to be made from a single piece of material which means that there will be no visible area separating the tank and the bowl.

There are two advantages of one-piece design.

  • Enhanced looks.
  • Less cleaning required.

You can also expect the trapway to be fully skirted with minimal curves.

Efficient flushing system

The second thing you can expect is ultra efficient flushing system. Most high-end toilets use some type of gravity-fed flushing system that drops the water into the bowl through rim holes located all around the rim. You can expect a high-end toilet to have a lot of

Other premium features

And last but not least, many high-end toilets come with very luxurious automatic features. Do you find the toilet seat too cold in the winter? Find a high-end toilet that comes with a heated seat. Do you feel that opening and closing the toilet lid too many times per day is something you want to eliminate? Find about a toilet that opens it automatically as soon as you approach the toilet to a few feet of distance.

1. TOTO Neorest 700H

Features
  • Style: One piece
  • Color: White
  • Flushing System: Double Cyclone
  • Water consumption: 1.0 GPF
  • Height: –
  • Bowl: Elongated

OUR RATING: 9.8 / 10

The first in line of our favorite high-end toilets is none other than the TOTO Neorest 700H. It’s one of the most advanced toilets you will find on the market and the main reason for that is the Toto’s Washlet function; an electric toilet seat with water spray feature for genital and anal cleansing.

It looks elegant, it has an ultra efficient dual flush “Double cyclone” flushing system and comes with a lot of luxurious goodies such as the heated seat, remote controller and automatic flushing. The TOTO once branded it as the “Mercedes Benz of toilets” which really tells a lot considering that the statement came from the world’s largest toilet manufacturer that has dozens of high-end toilets on the market.

Design

The first thing we noticed while looking at the Neorest 700H is the elegant, sleek and compact design. The tank is built into the unit and the whole toilet measures 32.5 x 15.5 x 21.5 inches which makes it compact enough for both smaller and larger bathrooms.

But don’t let the compact design fool you because the bowl is still elongated and the height is universal which means that there’s no shortage in comfort despite the compact design.

Fully automatic features

This is the area where the 700H absolutely shines and we’ll be lucky if we are able to cover everything in a single article.

The 700H comes with a convenient remote controller through which you can adjust all the necessary settings. It’s powered by batteries and if they get empty, you can still adjust all the functions through the buttons on the control panel which is located at the side of the toilet.

The first thing in line of 700H’s automatic features is the state of the art hands-free automatic flush. When you approach the toilet, the motion sensor gets activated, the lid automatically opens, the in-built light illuminates the bowl and the seat gets preheated to the temperature you have setup during the installation. If somehow the pre-programmed temperature doesn’t suit your current mood, you can adjust it by using the remote controller or control panel on the side of the toilet.

Before you even sit on the toilet, the Washlet automatically comes out and sprays the bowl surface with a mist of water which makes the ceramic surface less sticky and easier to clean. Once you finish your business and step away from the toilet, the flushing mechanism automatically activates and flushes down the waste.

After the flushing process is finished, the Washlet comes out and sprays the bowl again, but this time with electrolyzed water that prevents bacteria to start nesting on the bowl surface. The toilet seat closes automatically and the in-built light keeps illuminating the area around the toilet for a couple more seconds until you leave the bathroom.

Why is this a good thing? You would be surprised to see how nasty and full of bacteria the flushing handle and the toilet seat usually are. Eliminating the need of touching them whenever you need to use the toilet eliminates much of the bacteria that can otherwise spread around the house.

Washlet

The Washlet a registered trademark of Toto and it refers to the electric toilet seat with water spray feature for genital and anal cleanins. This means that the 700H eliminates the need of using toilet paper at all.

Dual flushing system

The highly efficient dual flush system of the 700H uses 0.8 or 1 gallon of water with each flush.

Downsides

The obvious downside of the Neorest 700H is the price. Although we only focused on reviewing high-end toilets in this article, the 700H is still among the most expensive ones, costing nearly twice as much as the average toilet on this list.

Other downsides are minor, but we feel the urge of mentioning them. For once, the sensors are quite sensitive. If you have pets in your house, the lid of the 700H will probably open each time one of your pets walks by. The second downside is that the 700H is harder to install and if you don’t have much DIY skills, you will most likely need some help of a plumber.

  • Dual flush (Double Cyclone)
  • Low water consumption (0.8 or 1.0 GPF)
  • Washlet feature
  • Remote controller
  • SanaGloss finish
  • Comfort height
  • Requires much less cleaning than an average toilet
  • Fully concealed trapway
  • Above average price
  • Motion sensors don’t distinguish a person from a cat

2. TOTO Neorest 550H

Features
  • Style: One piece
  • Color: White
  • Flushing System: Double Cyclone
  • Water consumption: 1.0 GPF
  • Height: –
  • Bowl: Elongated

OUR RATING: 9.7 / 10

Our second favorite in the line of high-end expensive toilets is the TOTO Neorest 550H. It’s an older brother of the 700H and they share most of the same features, including the Washlet function.

However, the 550H is a little bit less expensive and it might be a better choice for consumers who want to shave about $1000 of the 700H’s price.

The difference

The most notable difference between the Neorest 550H and the 700H is the design. The 700H has universal height which means that it’s design for people of all ages while the 550H is a little bit taller which means that it doesn’t offer as comfortable sitting position for younger and shorter users.

Another difference is that the 550H doesn’t have the backup manual flush function. If something goes wrong with electrical components, you will have no other option but to flush the waste with a bucket of water and wait for someone to repair the flushing mechanism.

Is that enough to spend a few extra $100 on 700H instead of choosing the 550H? You be the judge.

  • Low water consumption – 1.28 GPF
  • EverClean surface
  • Comfort height
  • Elongated bowl
  • VorMax flushing technology
  • Above average price

3. Kohler Veil K-5401-0

Features
  • Style: One piece
  • Color: White
  • Flushing System: Dual flush
  • Water consumption: 0.8 / 1.28 GPF
  • Height: –
  • Bowl: Elongated

OUR RATING: 9.7 / 10

The first non-Toto toilet on our list is none other than the Kohler Veil which is the Kohler’s answer on the increasingly popular high-end toilets by Toto.

Just like the 700H and the 550H, the Veil is compact with tankless design, it has it’s own version of the Washlet function and comes with several advanced features confirming that it’s a high-end toilet that costs a lot.

Design

The Kohler Veil is a compact one-piece toilet that measures 26.4 x 17.2 x 21.4 inches which is very similar to the Toto 700H. The second most notable difference is that the Veil comes with a lot sleeker design than maybe any Toto toilet on the market.

There are almost no edges on it which makes the Veil look modern and elegant. Although this is just a matter of personal preference, we believe that it looks better than both 700H and 550H.

Flushing system

The dual flushing system of the Kohler Veil is similar to the Toto’s Double Cyclone. There are two water jets located at the each side of the back of the bowl and once the flushing action starts, they push the water to the front of the rimless bowl.

The Veil uses 0.8 gallons of water when operating at partial flush and 1.28 gallons at full flush which is 28% more than it’s used by Neorest 700H and 550H.

  • Dual flush system – 1.28 GPF
  • Comes with a soft closing seat with stainless steel seat hinge
  • Comfort height
  • Elongated bowl
  • Attractive design
  • Above average price

4. TOTO MW634584CEFG#01 Supreme II

Features
  • Style: One piece
  • Color: White
  • Flushing System: Tornado flush
  • Water consumption: 1.28 GPF
  • Height: –
  • Bowl: Elongated

OUR RATING: 9.5 / 10

If paying several thousand dollars for a toilet is something above the budget, there are a few slightly less advanced toilets on the market that still offer luxurious bidet feature and other fully automatic features.

Let’s start with the Toto Supreme II, a high-end toilet with Tornado flushing system and CeFiONtect technology.

Design

Just like every other toilet on this list, the Supreme II is a toilet made of a single piece of material. The low-profile tank and the semi-exposed trapway make it look smaller and narrower than it actually is and we believe that the whole unit looks modern and sleek.

Flushing system

The flushing system of the Supreme II is called Tornado and it’s almost identical to the Double Cyclone used by the 700H. It uses 1.28 gallons of water per flush which makes it certified by WaterSense.

S350e Washlet

The Supreme II comes with the Toto S350e washlet which is similar to the one that comes with the 550H and the 700H. The lid is operated by sensor, the seat is heated, and the Washlet is able to clean both the front and the back.

  • Tornado flush – 1.28 GPF
  • S350e Washlet
  • Elongated bowl
  • Watersense certified
  • Comes with a single year limited warranty
  • Doesn’t include a toilet seat

5. WoodBridge T-0008

Features
  • Style: One piece
  • Color: White
  • Flushing System: Dual flush
  • Water consumption: –
  • Height: Comfort height
  • Bowl: Elongated

OUR RATING: 9.4 / 10

The last toilet on our list of luxurious toilet is the WoodBridge T-0008. It’s one of the most affordable high-end toilets on our list and it might be a great choice for consumers who are looking for a toilet that comes with a lot of advanced and luxurious features for a fraction of a price of the TOTO 700H.

We are honestly not sure why the price of the T-0008 isn’t higher, but we believe that it has to do something with the fact that the Woodbridge is nowhere near as popular as Toto, Kohler, or American Standard on the international level, so they need to produce less expensive products with similar quality to successfully compete on the market.

Design

The T-0008 is a one-piece toilet with sleek design, but it has a problem; the water pipe of the bidet sprayer and the cable that powers automatic functions are visible which slightly spoils its design, but doesn’t make it any less functional.

Other than that, we believe that the T-0008 looks great just as all the other toilets from the Woodbridge’s T series.

Flushing system

The T-0008 has a dual flushing system which means that you can use full flush for flushing down solid waste and partial flush for liquid waste. The full flush consumes 1.6 gallons of water per flush which is on the upper side of today’s toilets and the partial flush uses one gallon. The flushing system is fully glazed and it’s designed to be as quiet as possible.

  • Dual flushing system -1.0 / 1.6 GPF
  • One piece design
  • Bidet seat
  • The toilet seat is not included
  • Unique design that might turn some people off
