This is a really, really great toilet. Think of something you could want in a toilet.
It has that.
Whether you're an environmentalist, gadget-nut, or just enjoy a nice bathroom experience, you can probably find what you're looking for in this toilet.
Let’s start with the basics.
It comes with two flushing options, 1.28 gallons and a super-low .6 gallons. This is the lowest water usage on any toilet on this list.
It has an elongated bowl, which is almost always a good thing.
That being said, the bowl is still smaller than average.
Regardless, double check that the elongated bowl doesn’t create any strange corners in your bathroom.
The seat is at chair height--an important benchmark.
The seat is actually a bit higher than most similar seats, though, so don’t mistakenly think the shorter overall height dimension means this is a low seat.
The low height is because the tank is stored behind the bowl rather than above it.
The tank can hold 100 flushes in the event of an outage or other emergency.
Weighting 50.5 pounds, you'll be able to install the toilet by yourself if you wish.
Now the fun part.
This toilet has a ton of features.
Let’s put it this way:
It requires a touch screen remote.
For starters it includes a bidet, air dryer, and deodorizer. Each of these has several setting of their own.
You can pre program each of the features to the comfort of six users. Your friends can finally pee into whatever temperature they want.
The bidet even has an advertised massage feature.
Interpret that as you will… ?
The bidet itself functions very well, and it is nice to be able to pick a pressure and warmth setting.
It’s also self cleaning. In our testing and research this cleaning feature worked very well and reduced the maintenance required.
The seat is both heated and motion activated. You’ll only ever have to touch the seat with your very comfortable rear end.
Foot warming heat is projected off of the front of the toilet.
That’s right, feet warming.
Go ahead and let that sink in for a minute.
Both of these features add a nice level of comfort, especially in colder environments. This is a good option for tile floors and basement bathrooms.
Energy usage is monitored and can be reviewed. The toilet has a power saving mode, as well. If you want to make sure that you're reducing both water and energy, this is one of your best options. You’ll be doing earth and your pocket a favor in the long run if you buy this toilet.
The Numi toilet has bluetooth speakers which can connect to your mobile device. You can also use the auxiliary outlet or the SD slot. Or just play music from the built in FM radio.
Some might call his overkill…
But to Kohler that’s just luxury done right.
To further set the mood and keep you from stumbling at night the Numi toilet has ambient lighting. This also adds to the sleek style of the toilet, which would look very nice in a modern bathroom.
But nothing is perfect.
The Numi toilet does have some drawbacks.It is very expensive, several folds more so than any other toilet on this list. Additionally, for all that money you're spending, the required touch screen remote isn’t included.
If you want to use all those features you're paying for, you’ll need to shell out even more.
Some customers may not sit comfortably on this square shaped toilet. The edges and corners can prove a bit pokey for anyone who is all about that bass, if you catch my drift.
Some reviewers have found the product may, with all these features, be over engineered.
There’s a lot that can go wrong in this high-tech toilet, and there are a few reports of breakages.
However, a decent warranty should give you some peace of mind.
If you ask Bestazy, the sheer number of features on the Kohler Numi toilet make it the best. But the price tag is hard to swallow for some, making it rank a little lower in our results
We found this product to be a really cool gadget that really is more than a novelty (but rest assured, novelty abounds).
It really is nice to no longer have to stop to put the seat up or down--special reports indicate thirty percent less shouting in houses with both men and women.
We also found the nightlight to be a welcome edition.
This toilet comes with a 3 year warranty. This covers defects and regular residential use for both ceramic and mechanical parts. You need to know that this warranty is void if you use in-tank cleaners.
