The first product that caught our attention is the Brondell S1000-EW that is by far the most quality one that we reviewed. The manufacturer’s attention to details can be seen in every feature, starting with the elegant design. The first innovation is in the two nozzles that are made from stainless steel, unlike all the others that are made of plastic. This makes the seat safer to use and keeps it cleaner. In addition to the self-cleaning system, the nozzles also have a sterilizing option that removes any bacteria and germs. You will find in this seat everything you need for a complete feeling of comfort, from a heated surface to adjustable water pressure and temperature. Furthermore, you will enjoy an air drying mode and an aerated wash spray to make you feel more at ease while using the bidet seat. The nozzles oscillate to ensure a full coverage for a posterior and feminine wash. The seat also includes an energy saving mode, a deodorizer for enhanced freshness, a remote control, and can also be operated on batteries. The warranty that accompanies the seat is a standard 1-year that covers any defects in workmanship and operating.
In second, we ranked the BioBidet Supreme BB-100, a stylish and practical bidet seat that comes with a long list of features. The design is clean, in two available colors to match any bathroom décor. A feature that makes it stand out is the number of three nozzles that deliver a Vortex wash that will reach over the entire seat, from front to bottom. The nozzles are oscillating in order to create this type of wash that ensures the most thorough cleaning. With adjustable water temperature and pressure, you have full control over the stream of water. The seat is heated and features a soft close, making it very easy and comfortable to use. We continue the list of features with the self-cleaning system of the nozzles, a drying system to reduce toilet paper use, an Eco mode, remote control, deodorizer function, and an interesting pulsating massage with bubble infusion that enhances the feeling of comfort. Moreover, the warranty of the product is a 3-year period that is the longest seen in these products.
The third best model that can help you improve your personal hygiene is the Smart Bidet SB-1000, a product that is part of an advanced line of bathroom improvements. It’s available in white only and it can fit both round and elongated toilets. It’s very lightweight and has a soft close system that prevents it from slamming behind you when you leave the bathroom. With the single water nozzle, Smart Bidet SB-1000 can deliver a powerful stream of warm water with adjustable pressure and temperature levels. Plus, the seat includes a skin sensor that only turns the water on when it senses skin, to prevent water and energy waste. It includes all the other essential features like Power Save mode, drying system, self-cleaning nozzle, deodorizer and remote control. There is a 1-year warranty that covers the product for your peace of mind.
Another one of our options is this bidet seat from TOTO that is actually a very good choice packed with all the necessary features that increase comfort and convenience. The only drawbacks are the single water spraying nozzle and the lack of a power saving mode that would help you limit the energy usage. Other than this, it comes with a water heating system with multiple temperature levels, customizable water pressure that delivers both posterior and feminine wash and you get to choose between an oscillating and a pulsating water stream. The list of features continues with an air drying system, a deodorizer, and even a remote control for distance use. You can also use the LCD screen to make your selection and there are two delicate shades of cream and white to choose from. Just like the previous one, the TOTO SW2044 is covered by a 1-year warranty for parts and labor.
Our last choice comes from Feel Fresh and is a toilet seat that can be a great option even if it doesn’t come with all the features found in the previous ones, especially if you want to spend less money on it. It lacks important options like a power saving mode, a drying feature, or a deodorizer, but is packed with some other features that balance its efficiency. First of all, it comes with a water heating system with adjustable temperature levels and adjustable wash sprays that reach for both posterior and feminine wash. The single plastic nozzle that spreads water is self-cleaning. The seat is heated and comes with a soft closing feature to avoid annoying slamming. Unlike the other bidet seats that come with an LCD, this one has a control panel and unfortunately, lacks a remote control as well. The warranty that comes with it lasts for 1 year after the purchase date.
Above all the other advantages, the extended cleanliness is the main reason for their popularity. Unlike a regular toilet seat that all it does is provide a comfy sitting, this seat is equipped with a number of nozzles that deliver a stream of water. This aids in washing your intimate parts in a much better way so that you will enjoy an increased feeling of freshness. Moreover, the spraying nozzles include a self-cleaning mechanism that keeps them clean use after use without you having to clean them yourself.
Having to get up from the toilet seat and perform a cleaning is cumbersome, not to mention uncomfortable. Thanks to the bidet seat, this will no longer be an issue. The stream of warm water provides the highest level of comfort and you won’t have to perform any cleaning yourself. Some models even feature a draft of air in order to dry your intimate parts so you won’t have to use any toilet paper afterward. The fact that the seat is usually heated increases the comfort and makes it even more appealing.
Having a toilet seat and a bidet in the bathroom requires plenty of space and some homes don’t provide that amount of space. The bidet toilet seats are the solution to this problem so you will enjoy their advantages without having to sacrifice space or give up on your personal preferences. Simply attach the seat to your regular toilet and start using it every time you go to the bathroom.
If your bathroom is designed in a very modern style, you will definitely want a bidet seat at home. These items are cutting-edge and come with innovative features like touchscreen control panels that enhance their aspect. Bottom line, they are made for the most demanding homeowners who want to bring technology into their homes.
Although not essential, the design matters when it comes to picking the model that fits your toilet seat. You can choose from a rounded or an elongated shape and it’s important to know which one you need or the toilet you have at home. Aspects like color or the type of control panel are purely related to aesthetics or convenience.
The number of nozzles influences the intensity of the stream of water that will be sprayed after each use. The more nozzles, the richer the stream, so the better the cleaning. In addition, if the nozzles clean and sanitize themselves after you use the bidet, you will enjoy a cleaner and safer bathroom and you won’t have to touch the seat in order to clean it.
For a unit to be really efficient, it must provide both front and bottom wash, meaning it should feature a posterior and a feminine wash option. This refers to the distance the water is sprayed to so that you will enjoy a complete wash that will prevent any health problems.
Nobody likes to sit on a cold toilet seat when they need to use the bathroom so having a seat that provides a warm surface is everything you could ask for. Therefore, make sure the bidet seat you lay eyes on has a warming feature so you will never have to touch a freezing seat again.
If the seat you like has several additional features, you will enjoy even more convenience in using it. Some models come with a deodorizer that scents the bathroom after every use while others have adjustable heat levels for the water so that you can choose how warm you want the sprayed water to be.
Despite the fact the bidet toilet seat must be kept plugged in for the water and the seat to remain warm, you can still save energy if you know what to look for. The Eco mode feature is a must-have if you want to limit the energy use and it will help you forget about the energy consumption problem.
Brondell has a wide experience in manufacturing home and health products designed to improve the lifestyle of their clients. Aside from bidet toilet seats, Brondell also specializes in water filtration systems and air purification devices that rely on the most advanced technologies. Our top choice comes from this popular brand and we liked it because of its carefully-designed features.
This is a company that focuses solely on sanitary ware and comes to the attention of the market with many innovative and one-of-a-kind products that provide comfort. Their best seller ranks second in our ratings and is an item that will completely change your personal rituals.
The third best brand is Smart Bidet, suggestively named to match the quality of their products. They provide a series of innovative seats that can fit any toilet in the clients’ homes in order to be accessible to everyone.
For a toilet seat to be really efficient, it must rely on as many nozzles as possible and it should be able to provide a complete cleaning. This is why we chose as the two most quality items the ones that had 2 or 3 nozzles that are able to spread the water on a wide area. Brondell and BioBidet Supreme are the seats that use 2, respectively 3 water nozzles with oscillating or pulsating technologies designed to provide an intense feeling of comfort and cleanliness.
The main concern regarding bidet seats is related to their level of safety in use and the infections that could appear in case of contact with a dirty surface. To remove this concern, we rated the items according to how well they manage to stay clean and for that, we picked the ones with a reliable self-cleaning system. Moreover, the best product also features a sterilizing option that kills any existing germs and bacteria.
While some bidets only provide a posterior wash, others also reach the front areas and are great for ladies to use. When rating the top items, we looked for those that covered the posterior and the feminine parts as well so that the cleaning will be complete and the hygiene increased.
For you to feel comfortable, the seat must provide full control over its operating. The best items on the market feature adjustable water temperature levels that allow you to control how warm the water will be. Moreover, the wash sprays can also be controlled by adjusting the pressure of the water stream so that you will be able to choose how powerful you want the water to flush.
Such a bathroom addition can be a high energy consumer in your house since it is constantly plugged in a power source. Therefore, it’s important to pick a model that can help you limit the consumption and that can only be done with a Power Save mode that our top three choices include. This reduces the energy waste by preventing useless flushes and limiting the water used during the most intense hours of use.
Aside from looking for a bidet seat that sprays water, we also looked for products that came with a drying system that completes the cleaning process and also limits the use of toilet paper. Our top choices feature an air drying function that dries the water sprayed so that you will enjoy the ultimate pampering.
While not mandatory, additional features manage to make a particular item more appealing and a better bathroom asset. Therefore, we took into account features like deodorizer for an extended feeling of freshness or a remote control for easier access to the commands.
Most of the seats we encountered require being plugged into a power source and only the first one, namely the Brondell S1000-EW came with batteries that allow it to function even when the power is not working or you don’t have a socket nearby. This extends the use of the seat and makes it more practical.
