1. WoodBridge T-0001 – Editor’s Choice 2019
WoodBridge caught us off guard with their line of modern, high quality toilets. How can the editor’s choice toilet not be a Toto, American Standard, or Kohler? You may know these brands, but here’s why this WoodBridge is the best toilet.
2. Toto Eco Ultramax – Eco-Friendly
The TOTO Eco Ultramax is an ADA certified elongated toilet. Its one-piece design makes it easy to install. It also gives it a more finished, seamless look, especially at the base of the tank. Having an elongated shape, it juts out from the wall quite a bit more than standard toilets. It’s ideal for smaller bathrooms that need a toilet that isn’t as wide as other models. The sleek, modern design fits in well with contemporary fixtures.
3. Toto Ultramax II – Best Brand Overall
As runner up for editor’s choice, the TOTO Ultramax is one of our favorite one-piece toilets reviewed. The one-piece design makes this toilet sleeker and cleaner than the brand’s two-piece options. One-piece units are easier to clean because they have fewer places for bacteria and grime to hide.
4. American Standard Cadet – Most Sanitary Brand
American Standard Cadet Right Height is another great two-piece toilet. It is water efficient, beautiful, and reliable. Made of durable vitreous china it will perform flush after flush. This makes it a great choice for a family home with lots of use. This a classic toilet with a white body, chrome lever, and clean lines. The Cadet fits well in many different bathroom design styles. It also has an elongated seat, which isn’t as compact as round seats but allows for more comfort.
5. Toto Drake – Best Brand Overall
Our favorite two-piece toilet (meaning the bowl and the tank are separate). This TOTO is reasonably priced for a high-quality elongated toilet. It is durable, powerful, and efficient.
6. KOHLER Wellworth – Best on a Budget
The Kohler Wellworth has clean lines that fits modern and traditional styles. It’s best features are its reasonable price and size. At 45 pounds and 29.2 x 28.5 x 18 inches, this is a compact unit, making it a better pick for small bathrooms. Furthermore, its round bowl makes it an ideal solution for narrow powder rooms. It is part of the Memoirs bathroom line making it easy to match other fixtures, including this pedestal bathroom sink.
7. American Standard Compact – Most Sanitary Brand
The American Standard Cadet is one of the best designed toilet lines we have found. That’s why we have reviewed two others in this best toilets article. This member of the line is a compact one-piece. As mentioned before, the one-piece offers a sleeker look and removes the hard to clean areas caused by two pieces butting up against each other. And that means easier cleaning for you and fewer areas for bacteria to hide. Double plus.
8. Niagara Stealth – Great for Conserving Water
The Niagara is a reasonably-priced unit with the lowest water consumption on our list. A two-piece option, the Niagara Stealth comes in separate pieces: bowl and tank. While some prefer a one-piece, two-pieces are more popular. So, it will be easier to find parts for if it needs repairs. This particular two-piece is a floor mounted unit made of durable vitreous china. It weighs in at 103 pounds and its dimensions are 18.75 x 28.88 x 31 inches. The Niagara is a sturdy toilet that will fit average sized bathrooms.
9. Saniflo 023 Sanicompact – Great for a Small Space
The SANICOMPACT is one of the premium choices in our best toilet article. Saniflo designed with very specific needs in mind. It’s best for bathrooms with limited space. And it’s a great option for those who are environmentally conscious or have physical limitations. Overall, it’s a small toilet that’s accessible.
10. American Standard Cadet 3 – Great for Corners
The American Standard Cadet 3 Triangle Toilet is perfect for small bathrooms. Its triangular tank allows it to fit where standard toilets won’t. It’s one of the only triangle toilets on Amazon. Despite its unique shape, it contains the same technology as square toilets.
