You want a toilet that you don’t ever have to think about, but you know that the right toilet can enhance the look of your bathroom.
Customizing your bathroom to look just right in your bathroom and allow for right or left hand access is important, and it is very accommodating when it comes to customization.
If you want an efficient, reliable toilet that gets the job done for a reasonable price, the Cimarron might be for you.
It comes in a variety of colors to customize your space, and the two piece design, while not as easy to clean as some other models, allows for easy access to the area around the toilet, which can be important in some spaces.
It comes in several models, including models with left or right hand levers, the Touchless flush, round or elongated bowls, and a GPF version, which is not as good at conserving water but has more powerful flow than is needed for most home use, so is good for commercial or heavy use.
Non-GPF versions are still efficient, but the Cimarron balances efficient waste disposal with water conservation.
Is It Worth Your Money?
It is a high quality, fully customizable toilet that is reasonably priced. Performance is backed by Kohler’s barrage of tests, and the Cimarron is a very popular and common toilet for all kinds of home needs. For the price the Cimarron can meet a variety of needs well.

Ease of Use & Reliability
It has a powerful gravity flush using aquapiston technology, so you will likely be able to set aside your plunger for everyday use. That said, this model balances water conservation with power in clearing the bowl, so you may face more clogs than with other models.
The Cimarron is as easy to install as it is to use, with Kohler’s Dry-Lock system to quickly and easily produce a secure, watertight seal. The relatively light weight of this toilet, depending on features, means that the Cimarron can be installed even by someone who is not very strong.
Since this model is customizable in which side of the toilet the flush trigger is on, and even offers a no-touch flush option, the Cimarron model you get from Kohler will be exactly the toilet you needed. No reaching around for the flush trigger or pining for a better color match for your bathroom.

For from $250 – $500, you can customize your Cimarron to be one of a variety of colors, touchless, right or left handed, and round or elongated. This makes it one of the more affordable high end models with highly customizable features. At the lower end of the price spectrum, you still get an efficient, water conserving, high quality toilet.
Who Is This For?
If you want a high quality toilet from a trusted brand that you can customize to meet your needs for a reasonable price, it is a good toilet for you. It doesn’t have as quiet of a flush as some other models, so if a very quiet flush is important to you, it may be wise to choose another model.
It delivers a powerful flush without using too much water, so if efficiency and water conservation are important to you this is a good choice for your needs, but the Cimarron doesn’t self-clean its bowl or allow for external cleaning as easily as some other models.
If it is very important to you that you be able to choose which side of the toilet the flush trigger is located on, or want a touchless flush, and if customizing color to match your bathroom matters, it is a good choice for you.
For the price range the Cimarron offers on of the widest variety of options available. Kohler provides a high quality model that can meet the specific needs of people who want choices in color, flush trigger, and seat shape.
It is a good balance of price, efficiency, water conservation, and flushing power. While it does not boast as many features as some other toilets, it makes up for lack of features with increased customizability.
Other Options Worth Looking At
If you value a very quiet flush, the Toto Entrada may be a better consideration for you. While the Cimarron doesn’t have a loud flush, it is not as subtle as the Entrada.
If ease of cleaning the outside of the toilet is important to you and you are willing to spend a little more, the Santa Rosa by Kohler is worth looking into, as its seamless external design allows for effortless cleaning.
If you want to go as long as possible between cleaning the inside of the bowl, consider the Champion by American Standard. The EverClean surface, combined with the glazed trapway, of the Champion allows for the longest periods between cleanings.
The Champion is also a good consideration for you if you want more confidence in the form of a longer than one year warranty, but you will pay more for the increased features and warranty of the Champion, while losing some of the customization possible with the Cimarron.
