Updating seat covers
The C200 forgoes extraneous features you wouldn’t use anyway, and it comes with a remote.Toto’s Washlet C200 offers all the features you could want on a bidet toilet seat—warm water, a heated seat, an oscillating water stream—without crowding in a ton of costly and confusing-to-navigate extras.With six options for water pressure, water temperature, and seat temperature, you’ll be able to adjust this bidet to your preferences.But those are the only options—it lacks other frills, and it takes a few seconds to warm the water.(We didn’t test it, but it’s similar enough to our top pick that we’re confident recommending it.) The main difference is that this model has a white plastic side control panel attached to the seat, as opposed to the C200’s gray remote, which attaches to the wall.
I interviewed Kyle Bazylo, a bidet salesperson, about the most popular features.
We spent six weeks and made hundreds of trips to the bathroom to test bidet toilet seats—easy-to-install devices that wash your bottom with warm water—and we took more than 20 hours to interview experts, scour the scientific literature, and survey bidet owners.
Out of the dozens of models we looked at, the Toto Washlet C200 stands out as the best for most people.
is even too kind of a word—sometimes it’s more like a smear. Seemo, a Wirecutter reader I conversed with via email, grew up in Kuwait, where middle-class families like his had traditional French-style bidets in their homes, and most public bathrooms featured toilets with sprayer attachments.
When Seemo was a teenager, he moved to North America, where bidets are virtually nowhere to be found. “No one had given me the heads up that bidets are not a thing here.” He’s now a recent college grad living in Montreal, where he has an attachment for his toilet in his apartment.
