[Kogan First] Kogan Smart Wash & Dry Electric Bidet Toilet Seat $239 Delivered (Was $699 / Normally $259) @ Kogan

30

Has special features like
buttocks wash
Female wash

I personally prefer a normal bidet which I can hold in my hand, aim and direct at the exact place i need it to go. Hold it at a safe distance depending on water intensity so that i dont splash the dirty stuff everywhere.

    I was looking at this, but normal price is around 240ish. It was 199 at one point. Never was it at 699….

    Didn't buy in the end because it's Kogan

      I’m with you buddy.

      Wouldn’t matter what they were selling, I would never buy from them simply because they are Kogan.

    Before anyone buys one of these be aware that you'll need to have an electrical outlet near your toilet and have access to the water pipe/tap.

    That can stack up to be quite a cost depending on your circumstances

      Also take note of your seat measurements, otherwise you will be 249 down plus electrician and if you need to move the tap and get a blowback valve thing installed (plumbers please correct).. I think its the law that you need one as well.

    Kogan has zero customer service..I would not buy it if it was 10 dollars..better off buying a 50 dollar cheapie ordinary seat from bunnings or if someone needs an electronic bidet and is taking a risk because thats what Kogan is, spend more and buy a panasonic unit off ebay..button labelling may be Japanese but they have a far less chance of failing

      I would. Imagine returning it because it didn't work properly. It is literally an excuse to give Kogan his shit, and yours, back

        Kogan doesnt reply to emails mate, if you do , kiss your 10 dollars bye and keep your shit to yourself because you went and bought Kogan

      •  

        You can call or email, there is no return address so no giving back anything once you buy it because there is no response

        •  

          I just love the notion of legitimately sending my fecal matter to kogan.

          Against auspost rules mind you :p

      •  

        I have had two purchases from kogan that I have had to return, I had valid reasons and they accepted them. I did have to inform them I was aware of my rights, but they didnt take more than 2 days to respond. It wasn't gold class customer service but it was adequate

        •  

          I have sent 6 emails, been brushed off on the phone..I am of Indian origin so the accent may not have helped but no way will I ever buy Kogan or promote Kogan but if it works for you there is no reason to not buy from them

    •  

      I think it depends on whether kogan sold you the item or if it was one of their marketplace sellers.

      I bought an airfryer from kogan directly and it broke during warranty. They sent me a replacement without having to bother posting back the return. All complete within about a week.

  •  

    Curious question but does this install like any normal toilet seat to an existing toilet seat, I mean yeah I know you'll need to hook the electrical and water up, but do you need to change the actual toilet bowl too?

    •  

      No you don't. It's designed to fit most but not all bowls.

      Similar to the mijia one I have.. which is notorious for failing after 18 months (I am not alone with this . Many ozbargainers mijia seats broke)

      Thinking of getting this kogan one… But scared it'll break after 18 months too.

      •  

        Plenty of people here have said they have the Kogan unit and it works fine after 2 years, but then again just like your Xiaomi, if it fails.. Kogan will never respond so pretty much the same thing. I don't even know how they operate since they are a public limited company with such abysmal customer service. ,, but bottom line..I would advice against it if you were unhappy with the Mijia

      •  

        What broke specifically? The logic board?

        •  

          Spray valve broke first, then logic board.

      •  

        yeah, the original Xiaomi one had issues, I managed to send oine back during warranty period.. and now the replacement is making some noises.. luckily still working.

        It's not a problem with the type of device, these are all over Asia, and work reliably for decades.
        It's just that one device..

    •  

      No take off the existing seat, get a splitter to divert water to the seat , fit the new seat in, then give it power.. the last bit is not always possible unless you have a power point nearby..Alternatively buy a 15 dollar bidet from ebay, get a splitter to divert water to it, take off your seat , install bidet and connect to water then install your seat..no warm water or heated seat but works fine

        Interesting, that's way cheaper than what I saw at the home expo lol, they were asking for $6k for a full toilet system installed, and I'm like wot…. how many shit's do I need to take to get my return on investment.

        •  

          Yeah like every other thing out here, Integrated bidet seats are bloody expensive..may change as people realise the benefits or rather as doctors prescribe the benefits ..Mind you.. When I say 15 dollars I am talking about an attachment like this https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/274731658008?hash=item3ff7486b18...
          a proper bidet seat is heaps more.. though Reece plumbing integrated bowl and bidet seat is about the 5k mark while without the bidet it is around 2k .. so yeah ..disproportionately priced and currently products like these retro fitted are way better value

          •  

            @shaidas: Yeah looking at the Kogan one or xiaomi one, it's damn cheap, I mean $250 every 2-3 years might be ok haha, I would be on my 4th one and by then they would have improved and I'd still have only dropped $1k on it.

            Although I don't mind spending a few hundred more to get like a Toto, if it's made in Japan.

            •  

              @squaredonut: Yeah ..I understand.. cannot argue with that though a toto out here will cost you heaps more than a panasonic bought off Ebay from Japan.. Toto anything is a very high end product, and I doubt they would sell a toilet seat…I will never ever buy anything Kogan given their customer service and the Xiaomi units are known to fail quite consistently..so for me it is either the cheap ebay units or the Panasonic seats with Bidets .. but if I could spend 8k on a toilet .. I'd say Toto would be the first choice. Heck..I would buy all sinks and toilets Toto but I think you are mistaken if you think its a few hundreds more.

              •  

                @shaidas: Ah I thought Toto would have one but ok then so is Panasonic the most reliable one which is just a seat?

                •  

                  @squaredonut: Panasonic units are used in most Japanese residences and have been for a while now. I'd say they would be the most reliable in that price range albeit without warranty since it is an international purchase and the labels will be in Japanese

        •  

          You'll be inviting all your neighbours over to make your return on that and it will still take years

    •  

      No it sits on top like a replacement seat. You need to check measurements though.

  •  

    I personally prefer a normal bidet which I can hold in my hand

    I think the term you are looking for sir is bum gun. Good day to you

    •  

      It's actually multi purpose.. and is now referred to as a hole hoser

  •  

    …but can it be installed on a bucket?

  •  

    Dropped in price again. Now down to $209. I think I'll pull the trigger on this. My broken mijia/Xiaomi seat is really annoying

    Seat arrived today and installed it.

    Positive are that it uses standard plumbing fittings unlike the Xiaomi one I had.
    Was relatively easy to install, having installed the mijia one previously.

    The actual seat feels a bit cheaper than the Xiaomi one and doesn't look as nice. But it's still soft close and it does the job.

    Nice that it comes with some spare filter and nozzles.

    Fingers crossed this won't break like the Xiaomi one.
