While I’m sure many expect us to choose the Washlet S350e, our pick of the best heated toilet seat bidet models for 2018 is the Brondell S1000. That DOES NOT discount the other models on our list, we loved them all in their own special way. But to us, if we had to choose, here it is:
The beauty of the S1000 bidet toilet seat from Brondell really boils down to two major factors in choosing it:
- Simple, easy-to-use remote that is not overly challenging to use or fancy
- The seat is worry-free when sitting on it
As you’ve seen, it’s a fine line of decision between each of these heated toilet seat bidet representatives. While many of them accomplish the same tasks, some have finer details that ultimately make or break that decision.
To some, perhaps the sophisticated look of the Washlet S350e is your ideal heated toilet seat bidet?
Maybe you’d prefer the advanced remote of the Clean Sense DIB-1500R?
What about the tank reservoir-warming capabilities of the BB-600E?
In the end, we feel the sound structure of the S1000 makes us feel like we could relax more when we use it. It didn’t feel weirdly plastic or cheap.
The remote is free of any complication too. We can see ourselves handing it to anyone in our family of any age and they’d be able to understand what every button, switch, or toggle would do.
To us, the Brondell S1000 Bidet Toilet Seat is a winner and should find itself in your home today!
Here are the rest of our top heated bidet toilet seats for 2018.
The first of the top heated toilet seat bidets on our list we’d like to share is the Ultimate BB-600 from Bio Bidet.
(We’ll be featuring the elongated model today but it’s also available in a round version too.)
We’ll come to price shortly but let’s take a look at some of the features.
Let’s start off with the heated seat.
The heated seat is temperature controlled, giving you as much flexibility with the heat as you like. It also stays powered on between uses, so it’s always ready to go the moment you sit down.
The power requirements for the Bio Bidet BB-600 Ultimate Bidet Smart Seat are 120 volts with 660 watt power consumption. This puts it in the “small appliances” category from a power perspective and unlike your standing mixer or frozen margarita maker, it will actually be used every day.
It also consumes less power than many of the options available on our list.
From here, there are a slew of other features we can discuss.
The Bio Bidet Ultimate BB-600 has a posterior and feminine wash, a feature that is quite normal for bidet toilet seats and not so much with bidet attachments. The dual nozzle is great for the whole family, including children (kids wash), and keeps those rear-ends clean and hygienic.
In addition to the heated seat, the BB-600 used a tank-style water warmer for the bidet itself. The tank reservoir is one option available for many toilet seat bidets.
Sourcing warm water directly from your warm water hose is a challenge because that often means running a warm water hose from your sink to your toilet. We’re not sure about you, but that would be a challenge in most homes we can think of.
Also, tank reservoir heating is the low-energy method to warming your bidet water.
Say Goodbye to TP!
In addition to the eco-saving features like the tank reservoir warming, the Bio Bidet Ultimate BB-600 has a warm air dryer too. It has 3 settings, all controlled at the touch of a button. Toilet paper you may ask? The only toilet paper you’re going to need in the future is going to be the one you keep so your toilet space doesn’t frighten your guests.
Speaking of control, you have a great selection of cleaning spray options on the Bio Bidet Ultimate BB-600. This model also features the ever-popular oscillating wide-clean and pulsating message selection which utilizes the bubble infusion design.
As we mentioned, price would be one of the last topics we’d discuss. We know price is a big factor in choosing any of the heated toilet seat bidet models on this list and that’s why the Bio Bidet BB-600 Ultimate made the cut. Its price sits on the lower end of the bell curve and is easily one of the more highly reviewed bidet seats around.
The BB-600 Bio Bidet is a fantastic option if you need a heated toilet seat bidet at a competitive price.
Here’s our winner on the heated toilet seat bidet list–the award-winning Brondell S1000 Bidet Toilet Seat.
Once again we will be highlighting the elongated model but the Brondell S1000-RW is also available for round toilets.
It’s tough to find anything that hasn’t already been said about the Brondell S1000 bidet toilet seat.
Starting with the heated seat, it is adjustable using the remote and stays on at all times. No cold seat shivers to worry about here and the seat is slow-closing too.
The power requirements are 120v and it consumes around double the Bio Bidet at 1200 watts. That’s a bit on the high side so consider your options here, if energy consumption is a concern for you.
From The Future…
One of our favorite features to highlight is the nozzle sterilization function. You’d think this were a toilet from the future because it treats the nozzles with silver oxide nanoparticles! Silver oxide has antibiotic properties and the cleaning can be easily triggered with the remote control.
There’s also a deodorizing feature that is not automatic and can also be turned on via the remote.
A magnet holds the remote in the case, which can then be easily attached to the wall or fixed to a table top if need be.
Another beautiful aspect of the remote is simply how easy it is for anyone to pick up and use. A lot of the bidets we see often has very intimidating control panels and can easily confuse new users.
Of course that’s no problem for owners who are able to repeatedly use the remote. This remote can help introduce bidets to all your friends and family!
Be One With The Chair
One of the best aspects about the S1000 bidet toilet seat that we like is that it is built to be sat on.
Many toilet seat bidets should avoid being sat on due to the lids’ lack of durability. However, this model from Brondell touts the ability to be sat on without worry!
To us, this is a big deal. Having to sit on a toilet seat because you can’t sit on the closed lid is unacceptable!
While the Brondell S1000 bidet toilet seat isn’t the cheapest of the heated toilet seat bidet models, it’s very much worth considering. The features and quality are too good to be looked over at the price.
Here we have the Toto Washlet S350e Bidet Toilet Seat as the next on our list of the top heated toilet seat bidet models for 2018.
While being the most expensive heated toilet seat bidet on our list, we’re going to cover a few of the features that validate that price. The Toto Washlet S350e features things our other participants don’t but will it be enough to sway you to make the purchase?
First things first, the heated seat’s temperature is adjustable using the remote and can be on 24/7 and definitely makes the seat a little more welcoming. By welcoming we mean more comfortable.
It needs a 110v power source minimum and has a max power consumption of 835 watts. To keep the seat warm, you need about .1 kilowatts per hour to keep it on.
That’s not too bad from a fiscal standpoint.
Where it differs…
The Toto Washlet S350e is a tank-less warm water bidet. What does that mean for you?
Unlimited warm water!
Yes, the Toto S350e Washlet can warm the water without the tank reservoir that would be used by others. The only downside to this is you will get a little cold splash during the initial spray.
No matter though, you’ll be warm in just a few short moments.
Another area that affects the higher-end price of the Toto S350e is its auto open and auto close features. This is the lone heated toilet seat bidet on this list that has this option available.
It’s a pretty cool feature, too because the lid will automatically open when you approach and will close 90 seconds after the presence of a body has left. Men can push the button on the remote control to raise the toilet seat. After, you press the button and it will close the toilet seat. Pretty easy!
One thing to note is that you probably could sit on top of the seat cover, but we wouldn’t recommend it. We see no reason to risk damaging your toilet seat bidet. The built in nightlight will help you see your seat so you can avoid sitting on it.
If there was one blatantly obvious signal to the price tag on the Toto Washlet S350e, it’s the remote. The S350e is unbelievable in its capabilities and displayed with the remote.
On the top panel you’ll see it has a universal stop button for the wash or dry functions. It has a rear soft and front wide option. The rear soft button will soften the pressure of the rear wash and the front wide button controls the on/off of the wide spray.
From there, you can control the water pressure, pulsating feature, oscillating feature (for the front wash) and the position of the front wash.
The last two buttons control the dryer on/off and the ability to switch between personal settings (for up to two users).
On the back panel you’ll find the settings display which gives you visual assistance with water, seat, and dryer temps as well as various other setting options.
Below that you have a directional pad used to navigate the settings options, a button to quickly access the temperature panel, and a button for the main menu.
At the very, very top of the remote, you’ll find the button used to open the toilet seat automatically. With the handle hung up on the wall, that button makes total sense because it is easy to get to when hung up.
It will also prevent falling by pressing in the normal button pad.
If you’re looking for the ultimate control over your electronic toilet seat bidet, look no further. The Toto Washlet S350e is a fantastic heated toilet seat bidet and answers our question on whether or not this bidet is worth it!
The SmartBidet SB-2000 Electric Bidet is the economy choice on our list of the top heated toilet seat bidet models for 2018. Available in round or elongated models, the SB-2000 has a great price point for the features it comes with.
Yes, that includes the heated seat.
The SB-1000 requires a 110v outlet source to power on and is a 660W consumption unit. The heated seat is again on 24/7, unless you don’t prefer to spend about $3-4 per month keeping it warm.
For a family of 4, that’s a no-brainer to us.Add that to the price you can get the SmartBidet SB-2000 at and it’s a no-brainer in general.
Inexpensive, not cheap…
Starting with the seat, it has self-closing capabilities which is not always a common feature. Given the price of the SB-2000, some heated toilet seat bidet models that cost $400+ don’t have the self closing feature.
There are the usual suspects too; a drying feature, energy-save mode, pre and post cleaning options, temperature adjustments, and on and on and on!
At a price this low, minus the cost of the month-to-month to keep your seat forever warm, the SmartBidet SB-2000 is a seat you should absolutely consider on your quest to find your heated toilet seat bidet.
Our last feature bidet on the list of the best heated toilet seat bidet models for 2018 is the DIB-1500R Bidet Seat from Clean Sense.
The Clean Sense DIB-1500R Bidet Seat is, as you can see, a fairly standard-looking toilet seat bidet. However, much like our #4 pick, is on the inexpensive side of the house and may have what it takes to sway you.
As our other choices, yes, this does have heated toilet seat capabilities. It requires 120 volts and consumes an astounding 1270 watts during usage. However, you get a 24/7 heated seat and that’s…pretty cool (drop sunglasses onto face).
Anyway, it has the standards as usual:
- Warm water (continuous, not tank reservoir)
- Temperature control
- Soft Close Seat
- Enema wash
Among other things, the DIB-1500R is a standard bidet. But again, it has a price that dips below the average price on our list.
There is a nice carbon air deodorizer that comes with the Clean Sense bidets. A nice touch for the acute sniffers out there.
The remote is a big plus for us and is a major reason we have the Clean Sense DIB-1500R Bidet Seat on our list.
It has a digital display which shows a number of different data points and settings. With the clock in the middle, it already outpaces the other remotes on this list. Let alone that you can simply see how everything is operating at any time you wish.
You will easily be able to control all temperature needs here. From the heated toilet seat to the air dryer, pick your poison.
You can turn on child mode to easily accommodate your kids, making this a family-friendly heated toilet seat bidet.
While not being the most visually appealing remote, unlike the Washlet S350e’s remote, it still accomplishes everything that can do and then some. And we feel that puts it into good company along with the rest on our list.
