    I am heading out to buy my husband's birthday gift soon. I am wanting to get one about a 17 in height and elongated bowl... These are my choices: Kolher Highline, Kohler Cimarron, American Standard Cadet 3. Based on what is available (at home depot) and I find that I have a few options. I asked the same rep 2 times, 3 weeks apart and got 2 different answers to my question "what is the best one".
    Which one would you buy?

    I would like to get this today, but after viewing your site, plan to replace the other toilets w/ the toto drake.

    Of those three?

    The ADA Cadet 3

    Though the funny thing is, a customer returned his Cadet 3 and picked up an Ultramax from me yesterday.
    He didn't like the water spot in the Cadet.

    I would suggest you look beyond the Big Box Stores. Toto is the brand preferred by the majority of us on this forum, but it is not available in the Boxes.

    Um, if someone bought me toilet for my birthday their might be issues. I guess it has to be a man thing. :)

    My sister's husband bought her one year for Christmas a Belgian waffle maker and she was happy! I told her it must be an age thing, because I am younger and want perfume, frilly things, candy and flowers. Non of that nonsense for me, like toasters, waffle makers, flat shoes, lol, nah.

    My mother warned me when I was much younger, never to buy her anything that plugged in for her birthday or for Christmas because anything that plugs in implies work......She never mentioned anything about toilets though....hmmmm.

    I see people giving toilets as gifts all the time.

    What better gift to give?

    Think about it, or don't think about it.
    No more using the plunger on a weekly basis.

    It improves the look of the home.
    Get a slow close seat too.
    Best thing that ever happened for men.

    Well, they may be pushing it.

    Pearls, I love pearls... infact, you made me think of the best present I was ever given by my older son,. He went to the beach on a vacation, and he brought me home, some of it. In a coffee can, some sand and some shells. I put that into a glass round dish and loved it a long time. On my honeymoon, now, 27 years ago, 28 in July, my husband and I went to Sea World, and their he paid for a girl to dive down under the water and bring up a clam. Inside of it a pearl. Every year after we would go their for our anniversary and I got a new pearl. One was actually a black pearl.

    Now, I guess he could had bought me a toilet and put a pearl inside of it, but, somehow it would had lost its luster, lol.

    Cookie,
    That is true I guess for a woman. But they get those things too.
    This is where the difference between the sexes is big.

    A man would be happy with new skis.

    Or knowing where the tv remote is.

    Or hearing someone making cooking sounds in the kitchen.

    Or the smell of laundry right out of the dryer.

    The sound of wine being poured from a bottle.

    Yes, the dress "and" the sound of wine being poured from a bottle.

    Okay, I'm getting this now.
