Swiss Toilet Review

The toilets here are remarkable in the consistency of operational controls, consumable materials, and overall experience.

Standard Swiss Toilet

Let’s get into the nitty-gritty with toilet paper. I’d call it “sturdy”. Neither pleasing nor abrasive, it gets the job done reliably and without fear of failure. I’d give it an A for functionality, but C for comfort.

Next are the toilet fixtures. The seat is a little less elliptical and more circular-shaped than I’m used to, which is surprising in a country full of skinny super-fit people. The flush-power on these things is amazing – it’s like Niagra Falls in there; ain’t nothin ever coming back up. I’d rate these things a solid A.

The operating controls are very consistent. A flat oversized button is depressed to initiate the flushing process. If you change your mind, you can press the “Stop” button. The stalls all have a locking latch with privacy around the edges of the doors.

The paper towels, however, were a bit of a disappointment; neither soft nor absorbent. #youhadonejob

Overall the Swiss toilet is a utilitarian but satisfying experience. 4.25 stars.
