When it comes to toilet bowls, Konyk favors TOTO's Ultimate for its “nice form and great suction.” This low-consumption, one-piece unit features a power gravity flushing system and an elongated bowl with a SoftClose seat. A computer-designed 2 1/8-inch glazed trap and a 3-inch valve ensure proper function every time, the manufacturer says. The unit is available in cotton, conial white, bone, beige, gray, and ebony with polished chrome fittings and push button.
