These toilets: Smokin'!

TOKYO (Reuters) - Twenty-six smoking toilets, and three more on fire, put a Japanese toilet maker in the hot seat on Monday.

Toto Ltd., known for its high-tech toilets with bidets that have blow-drying, air purification and seat-warming functions, apologized to consumers and offered free checks and repairs after some of its toilets with bidets and heated seats sent up smoke and three caught fire.

Strangely, there were no pictures accompanying the article...


  1. What a crappy product. I mean, I don't mean to poo-poo this company, but something really stinks here. A company like this that cuts corners on safety must be flush with cash. I think they just need to wipe the slate clean and start over.

  2. Making puns about a bidet is much more difficult...

  3. I think I'm just going to wash of this dialogue.
