We don’t ever really want to think about our toilet. Buying a toilet isn’t like buying a new fridge or oven range, that all of your friends will admire as soon as they walk in the door.
You hope your friends never mention your toilet. That said, it is one of the most important appliances in your home, and a toilet that doesn’t do everything you need it to do can really make your life stink.
Toto is the largest manufacturer of toilets and has been in existence since 1917. The company grew rapidly during the 1920s, as it met demand from expanding urban housing in Japan.
Even during the difficult years of the depression and as Japan suffered a severe earthquake, Toto continued to grow. This is because Toto maintained both its commitment to customer service and the high quality of its products.
As Toto continues to adapt to a changing world, their manufacturing innovations have kept up as well. This model exemplifies Todo’s commitment to quality, as well as highlighting their innovative design.
This model is a good balance of power, water conservation, and space conservation, but does it meet all of your needs?
Is It Worth Your Money?
The Entrada delivers a powerful, quiet flush that will take care of business while saving on your water bill. It is compact, has a sleek design, and is comfortable to sit on. It is reasonably priced at under $300.
If your current toilet is not very efficient, this model could actually save you money in the long run, as well as providing a much more pleasant user experience. The Entrada offers a lot of toilet for a very low price.

Ease of Use & Reliability
The consequences of an unreliable toilet need not be dwelled upon. We need to trust our toilet to work, to clear the bowl completely and without wasting water. A loud flush can wake family members from sleep, and disturb the quiet of your home.
It can be relied upon to flush thoroughly but not wastefully, and flushing the chrome lever results in a quiet, powerful whoosh. This model is universal height, so it may be more comfortable for you if you are on the shorter side.
The quiet, efficient flush of the Entrada is a joy to use, while the seat is comfortable. Users say installing this unit is a breeze. At under 80 pounds it is not too difficult to manipulate.
Round or Elongated?
It comes in both round and elongated varieties. Which is right for you? While you may prefer the elongated seat because it provides you with a little more space, it also takes up more space in your bathroom. Measure your space and see which compact Entrada will fit best.

The Entrada is a great toilet for a good price, coming in at under $300. With customized bowl shape and an exceptionally quiet flush that still packs the power to clear the bowl every time, this Toto model is a good buy for the money.
Who Is This For?
If you are looking for a high quality toilet in the mid-price range, especially for a guest bathroom, centralized bathroom, or only bathroom in the house, the Entrada is a good option for you. The Entrada is quiet enough for bathrooms right next to a living space, but powerful enough that nothing unpleasant is left in the bowl.
If your toilet is used a lot, you will appreciate how much water the Entrada can conserve. Whether you have space to accommodate the elongated seat or would rather go with the round version, it can meet your needs with style and a classic design that will make your bathroom look good without drawing attention to itself.
The Toto Entrada is a quiet, efficient, high-quality unit for an excellent price. You won’t find a toilet much quieter anywhere on the market, and while the Entrada does sacrifice some power to conserve water, it will still do a good job of clearing the bathroom efficiently.
Other Options Worth Looking At
The Toto Drake is another quality product made by Toto, but the Drake’s flush is not nearly as quiet as the Entrada. The Drake does, however, offer a lot more power than the Entrada, so if you never want to flush twice or deal with a clog, the Drake may be a better choice for you than the Entrada.
This model is not as easy to clean as a one piece design like that offered by the Kohler Santa Rosa, so if effortless cleaning is your priority that may be a better model for you. If you want more confidence than the one year warranty offered by Toto, along with easier cleaning, the American Standard Champion may be a good choice, but you will pay more for these models as well.
If you want to customize color and other choices like flush trigger side, options from Kohler like the Cimarron might be good for you.
