Detailed Comparison between the TOTO S300e Washlet and the Dignity Solutions Cascade 3000
Look & Feel
The Cascade 3000 by Dignity Solutions offers a classy silhouette and comes in a clean white color. It comes in both elongated and round seat styles and its design enables it to be successfully installed on French curve toilets. The TOTO S300e also features an elegant look and comes in both white or beige, but it only fits round toilets. If you fall in love with the S300e but have an an elongated toilet, you’ll want to check out the S500e by TOTO as it comes with all the same features as the S300e but has an elongated seat.
Like most bidets on the market, the TOTO S300e’s lid isn’t designed to support the weight of an adult, and sitting on it carries the risk of seriously damaging or breaking the bidet. In contrast, the Cascade 3000 by Dignity Solutions comes with a durable, sittable lid that safely supports up to 300 lbs, so it’s a great option if you regularly sit on your toilet lid to dress or complete personal hygiene activities like clipping toenails.
Wash & Dry Features
The Cascade 3000 offers a state of the art nozzle that’s made out of top-quality stainless steel, while the TOTO S300e offers the more common place plastic nozzle. Purchasing a bidet seat with stainless steel nozzles means nozzles that are longer lasting and more resistant to bacteria then plastic or aluminum nozzles. Despite this difference in nozzles between these two seats, both offer sterilization functionality to ensure you get the cleanest wash possible.
While the Dignity Solutions Cascade 3000 features two standard wash modes (front and rear), the The TOTO S300e offers an impressive four wash modes: front, wide front, rear and soft rear. Wide front cleansing is not found on many bidets, but it’s a useful feature that broadens the water spray and increases cleansing coverage, which in turn reduces the amount of body repositioning required for a thorough wash.
One Button Wash/Dry and User Presets
The one button wash/dry feature on the Dignity Solutions Cascade 3000 immediately initiates a standard wash/dry cycle and is a great feature if you’d rather not manually select wash and dry options each time you use the seat. The TOTO S550e takes this idea a step further by offering feature called “user presets”. User presets allow you to program your favorite wash and dry settings (e.g. water temperature, water pressure, air dryer temperature) into the remote ahead of time for a completely personalized wash and dry at the touch of a button.
Comfort & Convenience Features
The TOTO S300e comes with an attractive, dual sided remote with a screen for displaying selected options. The Cascade 3000 by Dignity Solutions, on the other hand, offers two remote options: a large remote with easy-to-press buttons and an intuitive layout, or a smaller (standard size) remote with flat buttons and a screen that displays chosen options.
The TOTO S300e is able to safely support up to 320 lbs, while the Dignity Solutions Cascade 3000 isn’t far behind, with a 300 lb weight limit.
Dignity Solutions offers a full 4 year full warranty on the Cascade 3000, giving you peace of mind that your investment is protected for several years to come. In contrast, the TOTO S300e features a 1 year full warranty. If having a longer warranty is important to you, the Cascade 3000 won’t disappoint.
The Cascade 3000 by Dignity Solutions and the TOTO S300e Washlet are close competitors, with each offering a wide range of desirable features that are designed to take the quality, comfort and convenience of your bathroom experience to new heights. Ultimately, deciding between the two will depend on which bidet features are a priority to you. If you’re in need of a beige bidet seat, the TOTO S300e is a great option, but if you need an elongated seat, the Dignity Solutions Cascade 3000 will fit your needs better. Additionally, the Cascade 3000 is a great choice if you’re looking for a seat with a sittable lid, hygienic stainless steel nozzles, multiple remote control options and a stellar warranty. On the other hand, if you know you need a wide spray wash option, user presets and a slightly higher weight limit, the TOTO S300e may be the better choice for your situation. Both bidet seats are high-quality and high-performing units, so you really can’t go wrong with either one!
