American Standard, Kohler, Toto and Mansfield are the top four toilet manufacturers according to industry experts. Ranker.com lists brands somewhat differently, with American Standard, Mansfield, Bristan and VitrA taking the top positions.
Both American Standard and Mansfield have been around since 1929, offering a large selection of toilets and the latest innovations in the industry. Toto is a top-of-the-line, very exclusive brand from Japan, while consumers recognize Kohler for its high-quality, affordable products. Experts suggest consumers consider a few questions when choosing the toilet that's right for them, including whether it should be a one-piece or a two-piece item or if it should have a round or an elongated bowl.
