Normally, if I were to write about something like this, it would be a tool or wood gloat. However, when you are the winner of a contest, it hardly qualifies as a gloat. Rather, this is something I’ve always wanted, but never received the okay from the boss. It’s almost as good as the Daisy Red Ryder with a compass in the stock (well, actually better).

Meet the latest addition to the family – the TOTO Washlet S300!!!

I won it at the KBIS. The girls at the TOTO booth said that if I Tweet, or “Like” TOTO on Facebook, I would be entered into the contest to win. I honestly didn’t pay much attention to what they were saying, as I never win anything. I thought they said Washlet, but I was probably only wishing. But hey, a couple of word Tweet – who knows. Honestly, though, I was serious about what I said in the Tweet. TOTO had a lot of really awesome displays.

It arrived sometime today. This little gem does almost everything it’s big brother, the Neorest does, but at a third of the price.

It washes (with heated water) in five cleaning modes; has a heated seat, warm air drying, and even has an air purifier.

Most of the men reading this will probably sit on the throne after they read this and think – man, I wish I had a heated seat! Women will think – ah, just another toy for the guys to sit and think – even longer! Heck, maybe I’ll be able to read several remodeling journals instead of just one article. Now, all I need is the big-screen TV across from the toilet, and all will be right with the world.

OK….I had to Google this to get the whole picture. How many quarters does it take? Does it have a spot free rinse and wax and clear coat protector upgrades?
This was a new one on me and I’ve been around the block a few times. I’ll have to pitch this at a few up coming clients and see what kind of reaction I get.
Sometimes it better to be lucky than good. Congrats.

Can you trade it for the $700 instead….......lol

I was talking to my Japanese teacher. She said they are in most public places in Japan. Also, because central heating is almost non-existent, she said the heated seat was great in the middle of the night. Haven’t hooked it up yet – working on a job (well, actually, having lunch). I hope to get to it tonight.

$700? Where did you find it so cheap? It retails for $1,503, but I found some for $900. Heck, if I could find them at $700, I’d bet I could put a few in a remodel job or two.

Not that I would, but the affidavit says I cannot sell it. Good try, though. First it was the Blum, now it’s this! :)

$708 was the cheapest that came up on Google. But they probably make up the difference with $347 shipping.. ;^) Most were in the $900-$1000 range.
I don’t want to buy it, just an idea to give it back to the supplier and let them resell it. I’m to use to the glamour of job site porta-johns. My calloused butt wouldn’t know what to do with this type of pampering.
