TOTO Neorest AS Review 2023
The Neorest AH holds its place as the medium range option, with the Neorest AS set to maintain a similar price point.
After a thorough analysis of the TOTO Neorest AS specifications, we're convinced that this latest model brings to the table improved features and design elements, making it a worthy upgrade.
Now, if you're looking for a TOTO Neorest AS review, we've got you covered! Let's jump right into everything you need to know about the Neorest AS bidet toilet.
TOTO Neorest AS Review
A TOTO Neorest toilet is one of the biggest upgrades you can make to your overall bathroom experience, as they are arguably the most technologically advanced toilets on the planet.
Dive into any TOTO Neorest toilet review, and the consensus is clear: these high-end bidets are consistently seen as a worthy investment.
The four main differences are:
- Refreshed design with one color choice
- Integrated, seamless seat
- Capability for four user presets
- Additional self cleaning
Let's delve deeper into each of these features to understand their significance for you.
One Color Option
One main difference between the Neorest AH and Neorest AS is that there is now only one color to choose from (cotton/white) whereas the Neorest AH also comes in sedona beige.
If your bathroom requires a smart toilet in a different color than white, we’d recommend purchasing a Neorest AH or TOTO Neorest RH before they’re all gone!
You’ll notice a smoother, more refined aesthetic at play here with the Neorest AS. Its contours and angles are more graceful and overall we feel it has a more refined, elegant look over the more stocky Neorest AH.
There are some more minor dimensional and other size differences as well. For a complete look at the TOTO Neorest AS specifications, you can find those here.

TOTO's revamped seat design ensures there's no space between the seat's underside and the toilet itself. This effectively minimizes the chances of dirt and bathroom residue accumulating in those challenging-to-clean spots.
Though it may not revolutionize the bathroom experience, this considerate design refinement showcases TOTO's dedication to harmonizing aesthetics and practicality.
Four User Presets
TOTO has elevated user personalization with their latest offering. The Neorest AS remote control now has the capability to store preferences for up to four users, a notable enhancement from the TOTO AH's two-user memory.
Just choose your custom setting on the remote, and the Neorest AS will tailor the experience to your preference. Interacting with the TOTO AS remote remains as intuitive as ever, mirroring the ease of the AH's controller.
So, whether your household boasts several Neorest bidet toilet enthusiasts, or you desire different settings for various seasons (or even times of day), the expanded memory offers heightened adaptability.
Extra EWATER Rinse
Every TOTO Neorest model incorporates EWATER+ technology for automatic cleaning of the wand and bowl after each use. But what exactly is EWATER?
EWATER is essentially electrolyzed water, a prevalent cleaning technology in the food service and hospitality sectors. As far as we're aware, TOTO stands out as the sole company employing it in bathroom products.
EWATER+ is highly regarded as a natural cleaner because it's:
- Mildly acidic (with a higher pH level)
- Free from chemicals
- Safe for humans
A distinctive feature of the Neorest AS is its additional rinse beneath the bidet toilet seat, complementing the wand and bowl cleaning. This enhances the hygiene factor.
It should be noted that the new Neorest RS does not have this extra EWATER feature.
