Maseuse Toilets

The Toto Brand Toilets Give Going to the Washroom a Whole New Meaning

— June 1, 2010 — Unique
Going to the washroom should be a relaxing and pleasant experience and that's exactly what the Toto brand toilets do -- they specialize in luxury bathroom experiences. If you think there's only an automatic flush system, then you're not thinking big enough.

For $12,000 these toilets automatically open, close, wash your behind, flush and have heated seats -- for those cold winter days. But the best part is, according to Racked, "there's even a built-in mysterious massage feature," and what it massages no one exactly knows. The Toto brand toilets give going to the bathroom a whole new meaning.
