Conclusion

Toto offers the balanced flushing performance. It provided innovation, great design, quality, ecology awareness through watersense and long term value. At 1.28 gpf, Toto Ultramax II het Double cyclone has the perfect flushing performance, its powerful, quiet flush every time, fast tank refill, no-prolong hold of trip lever, seldom clog, comfortable height and always clean Sanagloss surface. A One-piece toilet that only weighs 99 pounds and easy to install and comes with a soft-close toilet seat. For these, we believe this is the best toilet.

Double Cyclone Flushing System
Gravity plus significant centrifugal force spins most anything away efficiently. The power of water and gravity creates a more powerful flush that maximizes cleaning action. Two nozzles (instead of rim holes) use water more efficiently for a better rim and bowl wash and result in less trapped dirt and less cleaning.

 

Toilet Technological Innovation to the Max
SanaGloss prevents debris, mold and bacteria from sticking to porous, ceramic surfaces which makes it cleaner and expands its service.

Better Bowl and Tank Design
Ultramax II bowl rim has no holes or inverted canal on the sides so its easier to clean that also offers a seamless appearance and since its one-piece, no need to worry about leaking water and cleaning between the tank and bowl area.

How to unclog a Toto Drake or Ultramax II Model
On a Toto, the bowl bottom outlet is trapezoid-shaped so a Continental Mfg Co Plunger 24 is flexible enough to fit the Trapezoid bowl bottom works great. It is also high volume, so it moves a lot of water when the bottom seals.

Raspberry-White Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

So I love cheesecake…and well Valentine’s Day seems like a great excuse to make these cute desserts.

This is one of many Valentine’s Desserts found on All You!

Raspberry-White Chocolate Cheesebake Bars

Ingredients:
1 9-oz. box chocolate wafer cookies 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup frozen raspberries, thawed 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, room temperature
2 large eggs plus 2 large yolks
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 4 ounces white chocolate, melted and cooled

Preparation:
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a food processor, blend wafer cookies until completely crushed. Transfer to a bowl, pour in melted butter and mix until crumbs are evenly moistened. Pour crumbs into a 9-inch square baking pan, and use your fingers to press into an even layer over bottom and about 1/2 inch up sides of pan. Bake for 8 minutes, until firm. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. Reduce oven temperature to 250ºF.
2. Combine raspberries and 1 Tbsp. sugar in a food processor and blend until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat cream cheese and remaining 1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp. sugar until smooth. Add eggs and yolks one at a time, beating briefly after each addition. Add flour and vanilla and mix just until combined. Fold in white chocolate.
3. Pour cheesecake mixture over cooled crust, spreading evenly. Drop spoonfuls of raspberry puree on top and, using a toothpick, drag raspberry puree through cheesecake to create a marbled effect, taking care not to drag in crust. Bake until edges are pale golden and cheesecake is just set in center, 1 hour and 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack, then cover and refrigerate until fully chilled, at least 2 hours. Cut and serve.
