Miseno are a brand which offers all kinds of sanitary ware for the bathroom. This guide aims to help our readers better understand the toilets they offer, their functionality, efficiency, and overall performance.
It can be hard to differentiate between the numerous companies in this industry, so be sure to make comparisons with other leading brands on our home page.
First on our list is the MNO370C. This is a two piece unit that has a rather unique exterior. Most bowls are either smooth round the sides, or have the trapway exposed. This one doesn't have the problem of an exposed trapway, being fully skirted, and it offers a much more stylish take on design.
It's elongated in shape which is always a plus in our book, has much better, and stronger support for your body when sitting down, and allows the appropriate space for both genders to sit comfortably. The only real downside of this is they take up more room which is obviously not ideal for small spaces. In fact, the manufacturer mentions that this will generally protrude around 1-1/2 inches further than many round bowls.
The material used in its construction is a ceramic china, and it's floor mounted. It has a height of 31 inches, a depth of 28-1/2 inches, and a width of 15 inches. It will also fit the standard 12" rough in size.
The flush is operated via a trip lever on the left hand side of the tank, and it will send through just 1.28 gallons of water, which is very efficient and will help consumers save money on their utility bills.
One advantage this has over some of its competitors is the fact that it comes with the seat as part of the package. Some companies don't offer this, and it can be frustrating at times making sure you get a seat that matches the size of your bowl. You won't have such a problem here.
Unlike the MNO370C, the MNO120C is a one piece toilet that simplifies the installation process in comparison to two piece units because the tank and bowl are delivered to your home already attached together. This also removes a common fault area which many leaks occur.
But similarly, it does have a nice appeal. We like the theme, with beautiful smooth edges and the tank seamlessly meeting the bowl with no cracks for bacteria and dirt to hide in.
The bowl is elongated and specially designed to be slightly taller than your standard issue bowls. This is known as right height, and the extra inches that get built into the design are great for the elderly and people with joint problems. For others to meet the guidelines for this label, they must be at minimum seventeen inches in height from the base of the bowl to the seat.
We always look into flushing performance and power in our analysis. We do so in a number of ways. But none is as reliable as the ratings given by MaP. This is a scale which demonstrates how well a product can handle waste in bulk without it getting clogged up. This scale goes from zero to one thousand, with one thousand being the top end. This model impresses, with a 1000 gram score, showing that it has a powerful and effective flushing mechanism.
Buyers often associate strong power with large quantities of water. But this isn't always the case. In fact, this one has a 1.28 gallon flow rate, ensuring it meets the highest efficiency standards and the WaterSense label. Upgrading to this from a older 3.5 gallon unit can mean tens of thousands of gallons saved per year.

Rough in - Nobody wants their toilet to be poorly fitted with large gaps behind the tank. But how do you go about preventing this from happening? The first step is to know what your rough in size is. The second is buying one that fits your waste outlet.
Alternative brands - We've researched many different brands over the years. Before you make any rushed decisions, why not check out a few of our guides here: Kohler, American Standard, Toto, Woodbridge
Consumer reports - Always have a read of customer reviews on the big retail stores and forums around the web. See what other peoples experiences are and make sure there isn't any obvious flaws.
It doesn't matter if you're looking for a replacement product, or simply installing a brand new bathroom, Miseno toilets tick a lot of our boxes as far as quality is concerned. They have an aesthetic appeal, unique exteriors, strong flush performance, and depending on the unit you look at, they can be highly efficient too.
However, we urge you to look into our other guides located on the sidebar as competing manufacturers may offer a better alternative for your household.
