Best Bidet Seat of 2020: Cascade 3000
The Cascade 3000 hit the market just last year and is packed with luxury features that make getting clean more comfortable and convenient than ever. A contemporary silhouette and round or elongated sizing options make it easy to pair the Cascade with your existing toilet, and you can choose either a large remote with intuitive, color-coded buttons, or a small, sleek remote with flat buttons. In terms of wash features, the Cascade 3000 offers standard front and rear cleansing along with an oscillating spray option for enhanced comfort and relaxation. The Cascade has an instant water heater that generates unlimited warm water, as well as a heated seat that keeps your tush cozy on chilly mornings. A built-in warm air dryer reduces the need for toilet paper, and the auto-wash feature conveniently provides a complete wash and dry cycle at the touch of a button. Additionally, the seat’s settings are all adjustable, allowing you to customize the water temperature and pressure, seat temperature, and warm air dryer temperature according to your preferences. Unlike the majority of seats on the market, the Cascade 3000 features a lid that can support up to 300 lbs, so you can sit on it to trim toenails, dress or assist someone in the bath without worrying about causing damage to the seat. It also comes with an odor busting deodorizer as well as an LED nightlight that illuminates the toilet bowl in a soft blue glow, making it easier to safely navigate the restroom in low light. For added peace of mind, the Cascade 3000 features a high-quality, stainless steel nozzle that self-rinses before and after each use, and the seat’s tubing is treated with a microbe-destroying, silver-nano solution that keeps the wash water sparkling clean. The Cascade 3000 also comes with a full four-year warranty, which is one of the best on the market, so you can rest assured that your investment is well protected.
Pros: Two remote options, sittable lid (supports up to 300 lbs), excellent 4 year warranty, round and elongated seat sizes, interior tubing is treated with a silver-nano solution, seat is designed to fit on nearly all one and two-piece toilets (including difficult to fit French curve toilets), 8+ year average lifespan
Cons: No pulsating spray option, auto-open/close lid, or user presets
2nd Place: TOTO S550e Washlet
TOTO is a leader in bidet technology and bathroom fixtures, so it’s no surprise that their S550e Washlet is making our top five list! The S550e features a sleek silhouette and comes in two different designs, classic or modern, as well as two colors, white or beige, making it easy to match your bathroom’s existing décor. Even better, the S550e comes with almost every bell and whistle for a cleansing experience that’s truly out of this world. For starters, the S550e offers front, rear, soft rear, and wide wash modes with adjustable water temperature, pressure and nozzle position. Oscillating and pulsating spray options enhance cleansing effectiveness while soothing tender areas and relaxing the bowels. Additional comfort and convenience features include an adjustable heated seat, LED nightlight, adjustable warm-air dryer, deodorizer, wireless remote control, and a lid that automatically opens and closes whenever someone walks towards or away from the toilet. You’ll never run out of warm wash water thanks to the seat’s instant water heater, and two user presets enable you to program your favorite settings into the remote for a fully customized wash at the touch of a button. The S550e even uses sterile eWATER+ to rinse the nozzles before and after each use, so you can relax knowing that your bidet seat is clean and ready to use every time. It also features TOTO’s unique premist feature, which coats the toilet bowl with a thin film of water prior to use to stop waste residue from sticking. If you’re looking for a high quality, feature packed bidet seat from one of the most trusted companies on the market, the TOTO S550e Washlet may be for you!
Pros: Auto open/close lid, pulsating spray option, extra wash modes (soft rear and wide front in addition to standard front and rear), eWater+ nozzle sterilization, premisting, two design and color options
Cons: Only offers a 1 year warranty with no upgrade options, no round seat option, premium price point
Bio Bidet BB-2000 Bliss
Bio Bidet is another respected name in the bidet market. Their BB-2000 electric bidet seat is one of our most popular sellers, and it’s no wonder given its sleek, modern look and high-end features. It offers many of the same features as the Cascade 3000 and TOTO S550e, including a stainless steel wand, oscillating spray option, aerated wash stream, nightlight and deodorizer, along with a fully adjustable heated seat and warm air dryer. Front and rear wash modes with adjustable water pressure and temperature get you completely clean, and the auto wash feature initiates a full wash and dry cycle at the touch of the button for quick, hassle-free cleansing. That said, there are some key differences that set the BB-2000 apart from its competition. First, the BB-2000 has a 400 lb weight limit, which is higher than the majority of the bidet seats currently on the market. Second, the BB-2000’s nozzles can be easily removed for deep cleaning or replacement, whereas most other seats need to be sent in to the manufacturer if you have nozzle issues. Third, the BB-2000 offers a designated enema wash, which directs a strong stream of water into the rectum to loosen hard stool and alleviate constipation. Lastly, the BB-2000 comes with a hybrid water heater, which differs from the instant and tank water heaters in a few important ways. A hybrid heater keeps a small tank of warm water on hand at all times, so there’s no burst of cold water at the beginning of the wash cycle as often happens with instant heating systems. As the tank depletes, the hybrid system’s instant heater kicks in to continue warming the water. While this prolongs the amount of warm water, the heater typically can’t keep up with the seat’s high water flow rate, and the water begins to turn cool after about a minute of wash time. Do note that the BB-2000 only comes in an elongated seat size, but it is available in both white and beige, and the remote comes in three different colors. It also comes with a 3 year full warranty that can be upgraded to a 6 year full warranty should you choose. If you want top of the line features without the premium pricetag, the Bio Bidet BB-2000 is a great seat to consider!
Pros: Enema wash option, easily replaceable nozzles, 400 lb weight limit, comes in white or beige, remote control comes in multiple colors, 3 year full warranty can be upgraded to a 6 year full warranty, mid-range price point
Cons: Nozzle tips are plastic (wand is stainless steel), no nozzle sterilization, no auto-open/close lid, no round seat option, no user presets, hybrid water heater provides limited warm water
Brondell Swash 1400
When it comes to name recognition, Brondell is right up there with TOTO and Bio Bidet. The Swash 1400 is one of Brondell’s most popular seats and has all the features needed for an exceptionally comfortable cleansing experience at an affordable price point. Like most of the other seats on our top five list, the Swash 1400 comes with front and rear washing, a heated seat, warm air dryer, deodorizer, LED nightlight, and nozzle oscillation. The Swash 1400 is a great seat overall, but there are a few areas where it truly shines. First, the Swash 1400’s lid can safely accommodate an adult’s weight, which is not typical of most bidet seats. In addition, the Swash 1400 releases trace amounts of silver into the water used for cleaning the seat’s nozzles before and after each use for better unit hygiene. The seat’s powerful ceramic water heater instantly heats water on contact so you never need to worry about running out of warm wash water, and its nozzles can be adjusted to seven positions and three different widths—more than most other seats on the market— for maximum cleansing coverage. The Swash 1400 is also easy to pair with your existing toilet since it comes in both round and elongated seat sizes, as well as white and off-white. With so many fantastic features, it’s easy to see why the Brondell Swash 1400 is a customer favorite year after year.
Pros: Silver nano nozzle sterilization, sittable lid, powerful ceramic instant water heater, adjustable stream width, further reaching nozzles than most other seats on the market, available in round and elongated sizes, comes in white or off-white
Cons: No auto open/close lid, no pulse wash, nozzles are not easily replaceable
Bio Bidet BB-1000 Supreme
The Bio Bidet BB-1000 offers all the benefits of a high-end electric seat without the high-end price tag, making it a great option if you’re revamping your bathroom on a budget. The BB-1000 comes with all the basics, including front and rear cleansing, an oscillating spray option, a heated seat, warm air dryer, and a built-in deodorizer. Stand-out features include an enema wash option that helps relieve constipation and nozzles that can be easily replaced at home. With a 400 lb weight limit, the BB-1000 is sturdier than most seats on the market, and its large remote is easy to operate with both hands or feet, making it a highly accessible choice for individuals of all sizes and abilities. One feature to note is that the BB-1000 has a tank water heating system, which ensures that the water temperature is extremely consistent. The downsides are that the tank system is less energy efficient than other heating methods, and the tank contains only enough water for about 30 seconds of continuous washing. After warm water runs out, it takes around 5 minutes for the tank to refill and reheat (in the meantime, the seat uses cool water for washing). Though not quite as feature-heavy as some of the other seats on our top five list, the BB-1000 is a quality seat with all the features you need for a comfortable, convenient cleanse.
Pros: 400lb weight limit, large wireless remote, enema wash, nozzles are easy to replace, budget friendly price point
Cons: Tank water heater produces limited warm water, plastic nozzles, no LED nightlight, no presets, no pulse wash, no nozzle sterilization
