Thrones vs. Thrones: Toilets Take On Chairs of Kings

The Throne of Charles III of Spain Versus the TOTO Next Generation Neorest

The gilded throne of Charles the Third of Spain is made of sculpted wood, and its gilding is so good that it has survived since 1766. That's cool, but could it clean itself? The TOTO Next Generation Neorest has a HYDROTECT (Google it) coating that prevents waste from stickcing to the bowl, and it self-cleans with TOTO eWater+ system. Also, the TOTO Next Generation Neorest has been ergonomically designed to exceed the ADA's guidelines for accessibility. I'm not so sure that the Throne of Charles III can say that. Like the Kohler Numi, the Neorest opens and closes automatically, and includes a bidet feature. It can even auto-flush. Score: The TOTO Next Generation Neorest has achieved throne status.

Clearly, this has been a humorous approach to discussing two of the most cutting edge toilets on the consumer market right now. But in all seriousness, toilet technology has come a long way, and TOTO and Kohler have produced toilets that are worthy of any royal bathroom.
