There are quite a few bidet seat manufacturers out there, and each of those has a number of models in low, mid, and high ranges. Because all of them have nearly identical sets of features, it can be quite difficult to make a decision when you’re looking to purchase one.
Questions like should you go for a premium luxury model or a low-cost essential model that just does the job, what makes one better than the other, which one will last longer, which one can provide you the most value, all come into your mind.
But there is no one specific answer to any of these questions, you must consider your needs, budget, and the tradeoff between cost and number of features in order to make a decision.
One interesting feature that would want to make you prefer one model over the other is the remote control. Truth is, the inclusion of a remote control comes with either exclusion of other features that you might deem important or a higher price tag.
There can be several reasons why a remote control could be important for you: people with mobility issues can have trouble working with a side panel, you need more convenience with the controls, or you prefer an LCD to better control the seat.
In this article, we’ll be looking at the 10 of the best bidet seats that come with remote control.
Bio Bidet Bliss BB2000
Go over any list of best-ranking bidets and you’ll definitely find Bio Bidet’s Bliss BB2000 around the top spot. Either that or the SE600. But we consider BB2000 to be the top ranking because of the well-balanced set of features at a moderate cost with a durable build quality, reliability, and extremely good pressure levels.
No single bidet has it all, so at the end of the day, it’s about how well the price, quality, and features are placed together. Let’s look at the important features the BB2000 provides.
- Adjustable heated seat
- Endless running hot water (hybrid, with a small tank)
- Self-cleaning stainless steel nozzles
- Adjustable water temperature & pressure
- Rear, front (feminine) & enema wash
- Pulsating & oscillating spray
- Air dryer
- Night light
- Remote control
- Auto “wash-and-dry” button
- 3-year warranty
All these combined with the durability and the strong pressure make the BB2000 one of the most suitably priced bidets out there. It’s a luxury product, but it doesn’t make you break the bank either. The only downside is the lack of user presets.
Perhaps the most luxurious and feature-heavy bidet seat of all time, the S550E is built by the oldest toilet manufacturers in the world, TOTO. However, it also carries a hefty price tag. It has all the features that you can ever need from a bidet seat, and then some, along with the ultimate bidet experience.
- Auto open/close seat & lid with soft-close
- Endless running water
- Adjustable heated seat
- Adjustable water temperature & pressure
- Air dryer and deodorizer
- Oscillating & pulsating spray
- Rear & front wash with hard and soft sprays
- Night light
- Premist (mists the bowl before use)
The remote allows for 2-user presets as well. As can be seen, TOTO S550E is a full-fledged bidet seat with nothing missing. But we place it second just because of the price, which even if warranted, maybe a bit too much for the average person.
One of the best entry-level bidet seats out there, the C200 is a very well-balanced bidet with all the essential features that give you a taste of what premium models have at a relatively low price.
While it has a tanked reserve for hot water, pulsating & oscillating spray, remote control with 2-user presets, premist for easy bowl cleaning, 5 temperature and pressure settings, rear and front wash, deodorizer, and air dryer all make it worth the price.
It’s a little bulky though, being 9 inches tall at the tail.
Brondell Swash SE600
A budget-oriented bidet seat with advanced features to provide you a complete bidet experience, the SE600 is an excellent choice for those looking for all the best features at a low price tag.
In terms of price, it doesn’t get any better than the SE600. It has a tank for hot water, heated seat, stainless steel nozzle, warm air dryer, deodorizer, rear & front wash (hard and soft), adjustable water temperature & pressure, oscillating & pulsating spray, and night light.
The only valuable feature missing is the user presets on the remote control, but at this price tag, we can’t really complain.
In terms of value, the SE600 should rank at the top. You can even use the lid for sitting when the seat isn’t occupied, thanks to a sturdy solid build.
Alpha Bidet iX
The Alpha Bidet iX is a sleek, sturdy, and durable low-price yet feature-heavy bidet seat with probably the most value. With a modern, aesthetically pleasing, slim design, no one can guess this bidet falls in the low-end in terms of price.
In terms of features, the stylish night light, remote control, and the low profile gives it the look of a high-end premium bidet, whereas for thorough cleansing it gives you multiple washing options such as front wash, rear wash, a “rear+” wash with a narrow stream, and a child mode that has a relatively lower pressure than the rest.
The stainless steel nozzle adds to the durability and easy cleaning. To top it off, both oscillating and pulsating spray is available.
Looking at all that, combined with solid reviews of all of Alpha Bidet’s products definitely make it one of the best bidets out there.
A low-cost bidet with the most essential features any bidet requires, the SmartBidet SB1000 is another value for money entry in this list. It has an oscillating wash, with 5 temperature and pressure levels, a heated seat, and an air dryer.
The remote control is easy to use, with all the controls and adjustments laid out clearly. It also has an energy-saving mode. Another addition is the “turbo” wash which provides a higher than normal pressure for those requiring a deep thorough cleanse.
The seat and lid are soft-closing, preventing slams, and the seat is also quite sturdy and stable.
Though the SB1000 would’ve done better with user presets, it’s still really a bargain given how low the price tag is compared to other bidets with similar features.
Brondell Swash 1400
Brondell’s flagship product, the Swash 1400 comes with all the features you’d expect from a high-end premium bidet seat. Some of these, however, are unique only to Brondell bidets.
First, the usual features: the adjustable heated seat, tankless running hot water, deodorizer, air dryer, oscillating spray, adjustable water temperature & pressure, front & rear wash, gentle-closing seat & lid, night light, and remote control with 2-user presets are all available.
Besides that, there are two stainless steel nozzles one for each front and rear wash. There are also 7 nozzle positions to which they can be adjusted. Lastly, the nozzles can self-clean and sterilize. The Swash 1400 provides all these features at a relatively modest cost.
TOTO’s foray into the mid-range premium bidet seat category, the K300 packs enough features to warrant that luxury label, yet at a price significantly less than that of the S550E; it’s close to Bio Bidet’s BB2000 actually.
Minus Ewater+, a soft front spray, auto-open/close, and night light, all other features from the S550E are included in the K300. The build quality and the design match that of the S550E as well.
Heated seat, premist, deodorizer, air dryer, tankless running hot water, oscillating & pulsating spray, and adjustable water temperature are all available.
The K300 would definitely be a good fit for those looking to add some style and luxury to their bathroom experience on par with the S550E but at a lower price tag.
Alpha Bidet JX
Another Alpha Bidet product makes the cut thanks to the high build quality, additional features for a price falling in the lower mid-range.
It has an efficient tankless running water system, Alpha Bidet’s signature LED light, one of the best remotes for the ease of use, and it runs quietly. Some of the bidets on this list happen to be quite loud, such as the BB2000, but Alpha Bidets are known for a smooth, quiet, and efficient operation.
Air dryer, adjustable heated seat, adjustable water temperature & pressure, front & rear wash, and nozzle oscillation are all available. Other interesting additions include Easy Wash, which provides a high-pressure stream for a thorough deep cleanse, and Wash+Dry to run an automatic operation that washes and dries you automatically.
Bio Bidet Bliss BB1000
Last on the list is an older model of the BB2000. Remove night light and tankless hot water, and the LCD from the remote and you get the BB1000. There is a decrease in price as well, which makes an effective purchase.
The BB1000 should appeal to anyone who wants the same features as that of a BB2000 but can do without endless running hot water and night light. Its design is also old-fashioned, but at the same time, it’s sturdy, durable, and long-lasting.
It happens to have even more water pressure than the BB2000, which already has roughly 30% more pressure compared to other bidets in the market.
We’ve looked at some of the better bidet seats out there. Depending on your needs, you could find any one of these to be the best for you.
