Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

And while we’ve written about lots of bathroom accessories — including the best shower curtains, flushable wipes, and the best shower water filters — here, we’ve rounded up the best bidets, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

Best-rated bidet

Luxe Bidet Neo 120

“Speaking as a hirsute gentleman, the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 has soured me on pooping in bidet-less toilets forever,” one reviewer writes. “It’s shown me the difference between rubbing peanut butter out of shag carpeting with a paper towel, and that sparkling clean feeling you get right when you step out of the shower.” And more than 6,500 five-star reviewers sing the praises of this bidet. “The easy-to-control flow valve allows you to provide just the right amount of water pressure for a full range of cleaning, from ‘gentle trickling stream’ to ‘full-on ‘Silkwood’ decontamination,’ ensuring the end of your bowel movement leaves you feeling cleaner and more refreshed than using just toilet paper alone,” one reviewer writes. Thousands of reviewers say that this bidet significantly reduces their need for toilet paper. “Besides the fact that TP is EXPENSIVE, I was concerned about the accumulation in my tank,” one reviewer with a septic tank writes. They continue, “This bidet cleans well enough that I’m using about 1/4 to 1/3 the amount of paper I previously used.” As one clean customer says, “The smug sense of superiority I now have over using fewer TP sheets can only be rivaled by the adorable squeaking sounds I make with every step.”

Best-rated (less expensive) bidet

Brondell GoSpa Travel Bidet

“This little portable bidet is a super way to stay clean,” one reviewer writes. “It’s small enough to carry in a bag when traveling or to tuck under a cabinet for regular use at home.” Reviewers have taken this portable bidet far and wide. One who travels to a remote location in Central America where toilet paper can’t be flushed writes, “My husband and I simply cannot travel without.” Another outdoorsy user says they “Purchased before our hike on the John Muir Trail and this made ‘clean up’ so much more enjoyable and it aids in using way less toilet paper.” Another appreciates the accompanying travel bag, which, “allows discreet transportation of the travel bidet to the bathroom especially when away from home.” Dozens of reviewers do point out that this is essentially just a squeeze bottle, but one explains what makes this so special: “Sure, you can use an empty squeeze bottle as a ‘poor man’s (women’s) bidet’, but the difference between this and doing that is that the nozzle on this is angled so that you can direct the stream of water at wherever you are wanting to be clean and fresh.” Another user says, “The biggest thing for me that helps is that this has a little metal air vent thing on the bottom so you don’t have to keep letting air in to get good pressure.”

Best mechanical bidet

Astor Bidet Fresh Water Spray Non-Electric Mechanical Bidet

“Never in a million years did I think I’d write the words ‘This ups your wipe game,’ but here we are,” one bidet convert writes. “More than 5,000 reviewers give this bidet five stars and many are impressed by how well it works, despite the fact that it’s not electric. The same user continues, “When researching bidets, I didn’t understand how this could work without power, but it’s simple water pressure,” which they describe as pretty intense. “Thank goodness the power is adjustable, because the lowest level is plenty.” Another user says they settled for this mechanical bidet, but they weren’t disappointed with its performance: “While I would have loved a fancier model with the hot air and the oscillating spray I needed to go with a non-electric because the tile in the bathroom was already up and changes to the electric system (or exposed wires) were out of the question. Still extremely happy with this simple model, it gets the job done.” Over a third of five-star reviewers also comment on how easy this is to install. One even jokes it’s “so easy I joke about getting an extra one to carry around with me so I never have to ‘go’ without a bidet again.”

Best bidet with hot and cold water

Luxe Bidet Neo 320

About a sixth of all five-star reviewers appreciate that hot and cold functionality of this bidet. “I suppose there are probably people who would really enjoy the equivalent of Old Faithful rushing to greet their nethers, but I’m not one to live for extremes and usually find pressing the lever down only half way quite comfortably enough,” one reviewer, who loves the hot and cold options on this bidet in their master bedroom, writes. “The cool water option is refreshing, and the hot nice and soothing. As another reviewer noted, the thought of cold water might make you cringe, but is in reality very pleasant.” And another customer says that they, “Cannot imaging not having that option to mix in hot water to make a very comfortable warm spray.” One reviewer describes the design as “ingenious,” adding “The hot/cold water adjustment was perfect and the aim of this thing was ON TARGET.”

Best bidet with gender settings

Luxe Bidet Neo 185 (Elite Series)

Dozens of reviewers like this particular bidet because it has two nozzles, as well as a male and female setting, which is appreciated by mixed-gender couples. “The female setting didn’t disappoint in helping me feel fresher during my cycle,” one reviewer writes. “The wash setting is for the bootie and it pretty much eliminates the need to use toilet paper. I had no trouble centering it to hit the money spots and am glad I bought this model with both nozzles.” One couple even says, “We both laughed at the ‘aiming accuracy’ of the spray nozzle.” Two nozzles might sound like more cleaning, but one user says, “The shield also covers the nozzles completely when not in use. No backsplash or male urine has gotten anywhere near the nozzles.” Plus, it’s saving one reviewer on some other costs: “Once I’m done pooping, a couple of sprays, one wipe, and that’s it. I use 1/4 of the toilet paper that I used to, so this thing will practically pay for itself over the life of the product.”

Best self-cleaning bidet

Luxe Bidet Neo 180

“I originally considered purchasing a handle-style bidet because I was worried that the spray nozzle would get dirty the way this style bidet is designed shooting up from inside the toilet,” one customer writes, but adds, “However, this model solves this issue with the guard and the nozzle cleaning feature for good measure.” The self-cleaning feature on this bidet is an added bonus for many reviewers. “I want to note that the self cleaning nozzle feature with door is a great addition and I think it’s a must have,” one writes, while another says, “I am also pleased that these units are not obtrusive on the toilets and don’t require any special cleaning.” While one says, “Cleaning the device is simple and easy, the self-cleaning nozzles do a good job and I only have to wipe the outside shield if necessary,” they note, “It does make cleaning the bowl behind the device a little trickier, but I am still able to do it without removing the device.”

Best bidet toilet seat

Bio Bidet Ultimate BB-600 Advanced Bidet Toilet Seat

“We bought this to replace a bidet that was a simple hose/seat attachment and would blast cold water up,” writes one customer who upgraded to this full bidet seat. “Going from that to this has been wonderful. Heated seat, heated water, a number of different function and auto modes, blow dryer … We should’ve bought one of these ages ago.” And dozens of reviewers recite this bidet’s laundry list of features, like one who writes, “Front for the ladies. Rear for everyone. Kids setting too. You can have it cycle through the types of cleanses, adjust the temperature of the water, and the seat heat.” The only thing it doesn’t do, according to another reviewer, is “play a little song — and I’m OK with that.” This bidet is even a favorite of  former Strategist editor Jason Chen, who wrote, “Once installed, the thing does more than a person could ever want it to.” And even though this bidet is full of features, dozens describe the setup as “easy.”

Best bidet with metal hose

Bio Bidet Slim Zero-Non Electric Bidet Seat for Elongated Toilet

Reviewers who previously had other brands of bidets or earlier versions of this model are happy to find that this one is made of metal, rather than plastic. “Much sturdier. Once you start using one of these you will wonder why all toilets don’t come with them automatically,” one writes. Another says, “The reason I chose this model was for the construction — the metal braided supply hose and solid metal T-adapter.” They add, “I doubt there will be a problem with that bursting!” A handful of users also believe that in addition to the metal upgrade, the water pressure is also much improved. “Other improvements include better water pressure and full-stop off position.” Another says, “An unexpected benefit was that the jets on this model deliver a much smoother flow — plenty of water yet not so powerful as to risk ‘ripping a new one’ — which the other brand I had would definitely do, if you cranked it up.”

Best adjustable bidet

Greenco Bidet Fresh Water Spray Non-Electric Mechanical Bidet Toilet Seat Attachment

The adjustable nozzle on this bidet stood out to over five dozen reviewers because, as one guy puts it, it ensures the “aim is perfect.” Both the nozzle angle and direction can be adjusted, as can the pressure, all of which is pretty impressive for the price. Another reviewer thinks this is a great “first experimental bidet,” for those who want to try it out but aren’t too sure if they’ll actually like having one. He explains, “It’s easy to install, and unlike others in this price range, the nozzle can be adjusted.” And one more customer didn’t actually think the adjustable nozzle would be important, but it allows it to be used by non-adults. As he explains, “It’s a lot easier to adjust the nozzle than to adjust a squirming baby’s butt.” He thinks if you only have adults in your home, the adjustment feature “may not be so important, but smaller butts require better solutions.”

Best dual nozzle bidet

Brondell Bidet Thinline Dual Nozzle SimpleSpa Non-Electric Bidet Toilet Attachment

“You’d think a jet of cold water right up the waz would be uncomfortable, all I can say is WOOOO! It’s quite refreshing, and when you’re done, your pipe feels just like you just got out of the shower,” writes one reviewer of this Brondell bidet. He credits the dual nozzle for the accuracy and refreshing qualities, noting that they both hit different (but necessary) spots, and a single nozzle bidet wouldn’t have that. He also appreciates that the pressure is adjustable, so first-timers can ease into the process. Of the pressure and accuracy, he explains, “The further you turn the knob, the higher the pressure. It was like Luke was using the Force to guide proton torpedoes right into the Death Star’s exhaust port!” Another emphasizes the dual nozzle should be a must for those using a bidet for the first time because until you get the hang of it, “at least one nozzle will hit every spot” if you have two. And another just appreciates that he can really customize his bidet experience with the double nozzles, writing, “The aim of the rear nozzle is dead on and the front is slightly further forward and has a different spray pattern too. You can feel the difference.”

Best handheld bidet

SmarterFresh Lifetime Hand Held Bidet Sprayer

One reviewer sums up the appeal of a handheld bidet over a toilet-mounted one: “It helps with aiming and controlling the stream.” And dozens more reviewers say they loved how much control they had because of this sprayer. One customer recommends you “be sure to aim the spray into the toilet until you get used to the water pressure and trigger control,” otherwise you’ll be very surprised with how much pressure it is. “Ours is pretty strong,” she adds. “It took a few days to learn how much to depress the trigger.” But another customer had no issues: “The water pressure does not hurt the tender regions as pin pricks but comes out more as a small tap or faucet and is far gentler.” Some are bidet experts and have tried numerous handheld bidets before, but this one stood out as one of the better models because of how sturdy and easy to install it is. “Probably the best handheld on the market, extremely high quality,” claims one customer. He installed his in three minutes. Plus, one customer thinks this is worthwhile for how long it lasts. “I’ve had this hand held bidet for over two years now. It is absolutely amazing and it is one of the BEST purchases I have made on Amazon.”
