How does the TOTO C100’s younger, more tech savvy brother -the TOTO C200- compare?
How similar ARE the TOTO C200 and C100?
The features the C200 shares with the C100 are exactly what makes the C100 (and therefore the C200) so great. Features you would never expect in a budget-friendly bidet:
It has an amazing pre-mist function which makes your bowl a slip n slide for turds. No more scraping off lil brownies from the sides of your toilet bowl.
There’s a deodorizer – erases all odorous evidence which makes it perfect for taking a stealthy dump while company is over.
The warm-air dryer allows you to have a totally hands-free experience. That’s right, hands-free. Sit down, do your business, push a button on the remote to clean, push another to dry, voila – you’re done. No reaching down into the shadow realm to poke around a poopy hole above a fetid swamp of poopy water. So much poop being avoided here, it’s really marvelous and my favorite thing about high-end bidets (especially those with budget friendly prices, like the C100/C200).
And of course, the standard bidet wash and the feminine frontal wash with the option to change the stream from wide to narrow, both with adjustable nozzle positions.
So, am I paying more just for the TOTO C200’s remote?
Nearly! But, not quite.
TOTO would (IMHO) be justified to simply pump out the same bidet, change the control panel for a remote and charge more. Other companies have done it (and with a much higher $$$ premium for the simple luxury of having a remote), but TOTO has also added a pulsating/massage cleansing mode AND two custom user profiles to retain the perfect set of parameters for the ultimate booty cleanse every time.
TOTO made the C200 sleeker, sexier, and also more feature-packed than the C100, all for around $60 more than the C100.
Some, ahem, OTHER companies have ONLY added a remote, yet upped the price by $100.
I give serious props to TOTO for their ability to produce a seriously well-built and endlessly functional bidet without giving into the easy temptation to gouge the customer’s wallet.
