$6,390 toilet is fit for a king

This throne is designed for the king of the house who has everything.

Kohler's stylish $6,390 Numi commode will, as the company's website says, "bring you the finest in personal comfort and cleansing." Not convinced you need one? We will let the features speak for themselves:

  • A motion-activated lid and seat.
  • Advanced bidet functionality (with adjustable spray patterns).
  • Integrated air dryer.
  • Deodorizer.
  • Heated seat.
  • Foot warmer.
  • Illuminated panels.
  • Built-in speakers and MP3 player jack.

You can also rest assured all that luxury does not come at the expense of the environment. Consumer Reports says this WaterSense-certified toilet uses dual-flush technology, which allows you to select a partial flush for liquid waste and a full flush for solid waste. How fun.

Now comes the bad news: The Numi won't be available until fall.

The Numi certainly is pricey, but it doesn't hold the title of the most expensive toilet ever — that honor goes to the International Space Station's $19 million, problem-plagued privy.
