I was looking at different toilets around the $200 – $300 range and found quite a few models that stood out from the rest. I wanted to find some of the best toilets under $300 and decided that that price range would have comparable toilets.
There were so many toilets under the 300 dollar price range to choose from and many of those had excellent reviews, a decent amount too. I wanted to narrow it down even further though and only wanted the best toilets to make the list for this price range. Here is what I came up with…
The CST744SL#01 Drake 2-Piece Ada Toilet from TOTO
The CST744SL#01 Drake 2-Piece Ada Toilet from TOTO features the brand’s trademark attention to design detail, as the elongated bowl is designed to accommodate even the taller users out there.
Older people or those who have trouble sitting down and getting up found this commode a godsend.
TOTO’s Drake toilet is ADA-compliant, and sits higher than other units sold today. It comes with the brand’s G-Max flushing system, able to get rid of most loads in one flush while using just 1.6 gallons with every press of the side-mounted chrome lever.
You have to buy your own toilet seat for this unit, but for a purchase that focuses on comfort, I think it’s arguably better to be able to choose your own seat to complement the comfortable design of this commode. As delivered, the Drake comes as a 2-piece set. Even then, users had no problem with the excellent packaging and instructions provided.
The 3810-0 Santa Rosa Comfort Height from KOHLER
The 3810-0 Santa Rosa Comfort Height from KOHLER is a marriage of style and function, as this sleek one-piece toilet features a tank integrated into the bowl a design that says modern.
The lack of joints and the simple shape of the unit also lends itself to easy cleaning. This unit is almost ready to use out of the box, with toilet lid and seat already included.
The only thing you’d need to purchase separately is the supply line for the tank. KOHLER’s water saving design saves on water with every press of the lever, with this commode rated at just 1.28 gallons per flush

Taller adults and those that have trouble standing up after sitting down will be grateful for the Santa Rosa’s “Comfort Height” design. The elongated bowl perfectly fits taller people as well, despite being a space-saving design. The AquaPiston flush technology sucks in solid mass with just 1.2 gallons, and will save you a lot of water in the long run.
The Drake 1.6 2 Piece Toilet from TOTO
The Drake 1.6 2 Piece Toilet from TOTO is the brand’s compact, contemporary commode, and will fit right in with modern bathroom decor. The flushing design is still the same quiet and powerful G-Max flushing system from TOTO, which uses just 1.6 gallons with every flush.
This kit is customizable, too, depending on the style of your bathroom. Options include a SoftClose seat, as well as an integrated washlet.
This variant of the Drake, however, highlights the powerful, “commercial-grade” flushing performance that reviews of this commode rave about. Owners in particular were happy with how their installation can handle almost any load.
The flushing power of this otherwise compact toilet is partly due to a 3-inch flush valve, a whole inch larger than the standard. The fully-glazed trapway is also oversized and designed with the aid of computers, ensuring a quick, clog-free flush with every use.
The 2315.228.020 Baby Devoro Flowise from American Standard
The 2315.228.020 Baby Devoro Flowise from American Standard is a combination bowl and tank, combining the ease of installation of one-piece kits with the flexibility of two-piece toilets. The highlight of this model, however, is its FloWise water saving technology.
This variant in particular is designed to use 1.28 gallons per flush, and is capable of taking down solid loads even with this amount of water thanks to its fully-glazed, oversized trapway.
With its low sitting height, this mini-toilet is designed for children’s use. If you want to get this unit for your home or school, just note that the open-rim seat is a separate purchase.
Evan as this kit may come in more than one box, installation still remains somewhat straightforward. Overall, buyers were happy to have a mini-toilet that’s a breeze to install and has a durable finish, perfect for potty training at home or at school.
The 2862.056.020 Fairfield Elongated One-Piece Toilet from American Standard
The 2862.056.020 Fairfield Elongated One-Piece Toilet from American Standard comes mostly complete, out of the box, with matching toilet seat and lid. Note that this model is not available for sale in California and Texas.
Elsewhere, though, it’s a perfect fit for smaller bathrooms and other toilet areas where space is at a premium. This one-piece commode is a breeze to install – it’s simply a matter of positioning the integrated tank and bowl, and completing the plumbing.
Despite its compact design, the elongated shape of the bowl can still accommodate taller users.
An actuator finished with polished chrome is mounted on the side, and is the only thing that stands out from the almost seamless vitreous china body of this toilet. Cleaning this commode is a breeze, thanks to its compact size and smooth one-piece construction.
The flush is aided by the suction design of the bowl, and I have noted that the water level sits a bit too low at times. Otherwise, the simple installation and nice, clean look of this toilet makes the Fairfield a cost-efficient investment for your bathroom.
