Features of the Toto Toilet Seat S300

The S300 has a remarkable full spectrum of features for a seat only add-on bidet. It includes one wand which releases the water spray, which you can adjust for the proper position, water pressure, and temperature. The rear stream allows for a strong or soft direct stream of water to your rear. The front stream does the same, but soft only. You can adjust your seated position to get the aim just right.
You can set the wand to oscillate, which moves it slightly back and forth, or pulsate, which changes the pressure of the water. This allows for lots of options, obviously you would need to try them to determine your favorites.
The dry cycle allows you to complete the whole process completely hands free, as well as sans toilet paper. It blows warm air, but does take some time, considering you just got a soothing soaking. It certainly allows you to use less toilet paper for drying, and when you don’t mind staying seated, an option to do away with it all together.
The deodorizer/fan is the perfect add-on for this seat. Not even something most people would think about, it offers a gentle noise for masking sound as well as a way to strip out odors without a cover up smell. It automatically comes on and goes off when the seat is in use, but you can shut it off if you prefer. A great benefit for a shared bidet.
The seat itself is heated and offers a gently close, so there are no more seat slams. The water heats on demand, so it is always warm.

Cons of the Toto Washlet S300 Bidet
The most common complaints were shifting around for proper coverage by the wand. This is easily done, but more coverage and an extra wand were on the wish list. The lid also is much lighter than most were used to. The great thing is, after using the bidet, no one was too concerned with these slight issues, as the numerous benefits took precedence.
Overall, a bidet is a luxury. Having a heated seat and feeling clean all day where it matters most, well, that is a nice perk. If you experience pain, hemorrhoids, or leaking, it is hard to say just how valuable it feels to be clean.
