Toto Neorest 600 Toilet Review
So you may have heard through the grapevine that there’s a super-advanced, crazy expensive Toto toilet that is basically a self-aware piece of machinery. Well, it’s not quite that amazing, but it is pretty cool, enough so that I had to include a post about it. It’s called the Toto Neorest 600 and it is indeed loaded with features, more than you can probably imagine needing.
First off, the design. The Neorest is a one-piece toilet, which means it doesn’t have that rectangular tank in the back that you’re probably familiar with on most standard toilets. It’s very compact in size, which is really nice if you’re trying to achieve a modern, minimalistic look in your bathroom. The shape is nicely rounded, which helps make it seem less bulky and also takes away any fear you might have of it taking over the world with its robot-like brain!
But seriously, let’s talk about the functions that come with this toilet. As you approach it, the lid and seat raise automatically. One you’ve done your business, touch a button and the Neorest will “cleanse” you with a warm spray of water – front and back. Then I’ll be all wet, you’re probably thinking! Not to worry, just touch another button to get “dried” by a burst of warm air. It’s like one of those hand dryers in the public bathroom, but for your tush. Imagine how much money you could save from never buying toilet paper again!
Of course, you’re probably not worried about saving money if you’re in the market for the Neorest – at a cool $5,000, it’s certainly not for the budget-minded. But to be fair, this toilet’s scant 1.6 gallon flush will also save thousands of gallons of water each year, so it practically pays for itself (okay, not really, but it does help). Toto’s Sanagloss glaze might also save you some money on cleaning supplies – it prevents mold and bacteria from growing on the bowl.
Whether or not you can afford the Toto Neorest 600, you’re sure to be impressed with its plethora of features, all triggered by the included remote control. Just don’t let it get wet after midnight, otherwise we might have a toilet uprising on our hands!
