TOTO Toilets: Deluxe Hotel & Home Johns with a Built-In Spritzer & Dryer

If you've been to a luxury hotel lately, perhaps you've encountered a TOTO toilet in your suite's bathroom.
• If so, you know: TOTO is not your average porcelain throne
• These toilets are the last word in cleanliness: they wash your bottom and then dry it
• A TOTO toilet is not a bidet. It has a similar hygienic mission, but much is easier to use
• TOTO toilets are eco-conscious: they save paper and water, exceeding California's drought recommendations 
• TOTO makes the deluxe toilet found in some of the world's best true luxury hotels (more below)

We're Not on a Budget Anymore, Toto

TOTO toilets are the highest-profile product of TOTO, Ltd.
• This nearly 100-year-old Japanese company is the world's biggest manufacturer of bathroom fixtures
• The TOTO company is fond of saying

So How Do You Know It's a TOTO Toilet?

Lucky you if your hotel room's bathroom is equipped with a TOTO toilet and not an imitator. A TOTO toilet will be handsomely designed in the minimalist style and will feature:
• A customizable control panel that is like a TV remote
• A heated seat
• After you flush, a spray of warm, aerated water to clean and refresh your bottom
• Then a gust of warm air to dry you
• That's hygienically clean
• The toilet self-cleans itself, too

Are There Different Kinds of TOTO Toilets?

Yes. This top-tier toilet is available in two basic formats, each with numerous variations:
• As a toilet seat only, with a spray fixture (this is the TOTO Washlet model) 
• Or as a complete toilet (this is the TOTO Neorest model)

You Don't Need Toilet Paper with a TOTO

These johns are paperless.
• The job is done for you by a puff of warm air, like a hand-dryer but gentler. No more toilet paper!
• You can program the water spray and the air puff (direction, temperature, strength, duration)
