Most reviews of Incinolet electric toilets report that the devices are reliable and low-maintenance waste disposal options, but reviewers and owners often complain of the strong smell emitted by a running Incinolet toilet. However, some long-term owners note that the smell of the toilet tends to decrease over time.
The Incinolet electric toilet is intended for use in places where a conventional sewage-based toilet or outhouse is not practical or preferable. These toilets operate by using an electric current to burn urine or solid waste to ash at temperatures of up to 1,400 degrees Farhenheit. Most Incinolet models can handle between two and four uses before it is necessary to engage the toilet's incineration function.
