Toto is considered one of the more — if not the most — reputable companies when it comes to purchasing a toilet. Along with producing durable, quality commodes, Toto’s passion for experience allows a toilet to be so much more than a necessity for any home or business.
In A Rush? Get this one!
Make sure to come back later (whenever you’re ready) and review my other recommendations if you don’t need to go purchase a toilet ASAP.
With Toto, using the toilet can be almost equivalent to a spa visit. Several models come equipped with things like:
- Washlets (a bidet-type, hygienic system that shoots warm water up from beneath to ensure that you are completely cleansed after using the toilet)
- Seat warmers
- Remote control technology
- Automatic flush and seat-opening/closing technology
In 2015, the Washington Post detailed how Japan’s obsession with toilets bore “some of the world’s best bathrooms,” so it comes as no surprise that Toto’s story is one that began in Japan nearly a century ago.
Toto’s products reflect their philosophy and standards, which value the use of innovation and technology, cleanliness, and a dedication to protecting the environment to ensure that your bathroom needs aren’t simply fulfilled — but that a bathroom can provide a place of refuge, rejuvenation and luxury.
Toto has a plethora of toilets available and they are constantly working to make newer and even better models for purchase.
I handpicked the best of the best when it comes to the Toto brand, based on which models would best appeal to a variety of different needs. Best models are categorized by the following common toilet types:
- Wall-hung: Toilets that float above the floor where only the bowl is visible and the tank is hidden behind the wall
- Dual flushing: Allows you to choose between two different flush strengths
- One-piece: There are no seams — the tank and bowl are fixed together in one piece
- Two-piece: The bowl and the tank are separate
- Washlet: Toto’s patented bidet-like self-cleaning spout
- Commercial: Toilets use in commercial spaces like businesses, lobbies or offices
So pull up a seat (pun intended) and take a look at the best Toto toilets.

A washlet is something that can make a toilet go from necessity to luxury. Washlets are also exclusive to Toto brand toilets, which is one of a plethora of things that make them head honcho when it comes to the business of bathrooms.

I was debating whether or not to give the coveted “Best Overall” title to the Neorest or the Drake.
In the end, the Neorest won out, simply because it is above and beyond one of the best — if not the best — toilet that is available on the market today. With innovative technologies, a gorgeous aesthetic, durability and cleanliness, the Neorest simply can’t be beat.
Although the Neorest is very, VERY expensive, there are some perks when it comes to the price:
- Never needing to worry about turning a bathroom fan on
- Using less toilet paper — or not using toilet paper at all thanks to the washlet and dryer!
- A truly luxurious and comfortable experience
That’s what I consider Toto’s absolute best.
Fortunately, you really can’t go wrong with a Toto. So whatever you choose, simply make sure it fits your needs and budget. Toto boasts a broad menu of toilets, and that menu continues to grow, so there’s definitely one that will be the perfect fit for you, your home and your family.
