Toilets in Japan catch on fire

Japan’s leading toilet manufacturer Toto is offering free repairs to 180,000 toilets after some of them caught fire. There have been three incidents of the electric bidet accessory in Toto’s Z series catching fire.

“Fortunately nobody was using the toilets when the fire broke out and there were no injuries,” a company spokesman said.

“The fire would have been just under your buttocks,” she added.

Toto is a pioneer of high-tech toilets with built-in bidets, which are popular in Japan.

The Z series features a pulsating massage spray, a power dryer, a “tornado wash” flush, and a lid that opens and closes automatically.

It is not sold outside Japan.

The offending loos were all manufactured between May 1996 and December 2001.

Editor’s Response:

I would have to say that a toilet is quite possibly the last thing I would expect to catch on fire. Although that toilet sounds extremely hot (pun intended) I guess none of those fancy accessories are worth getting the hair in your crack burned off for. This toilet is one luxury that costs a lot more than money.
