Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Toilet works fine
These are good toilets. The reviews that talk about poor flushing and other problems Im sure are not able to simply adjust the fill valves, or adjust the mechanism in the toilet tanks. Its a simple install and a great toilet. I have three of these and they work fine for a family of 4, two girls two boys with lots of use.
Water softeners are always a good idea to keep the toilet tank parts from liming up and malfunctioning. Many reviewers blame there toilets for hard water caused malfunctions. I would say these toilets could be more susceptible to hard water issues than cheap standard toilets.

Very easy to install. Strong flush and the dual flush saves water. There was a flaw at the bottom of the bowl that was not obvious until it was filled with water.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RV Just don't buy it...
I bought three of these on sale roughly one year ago. At first the toilets worked flawlessly, however, after 7 or 8 months of use, the toilets started leaking. This isn't noticeable however, what is noticeable is the fact that the toilet starts to fill up by itself after several hours of no use. Oddly enough, this still uses less water than my previous toilets, however, I believe that things should just work as advertised. Maybe I am just old fashioned in that sense.
Don't be fooled by those who write reviews after owning the toilet for just one or two months, it just hasn't happened to them yet. I am working with customer service on a solution however, if I had purchased another brand of toilet, I would not have to deal with this now. Save yourself a headache.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skwerl Great toilet, easy install.
We bought one of these toilets three years ago for our last house. That one worked great up to the time we sold the house. In our new house, we had two Crane toilets that flowed something like 4-G P M per flush. Lots of water. however they took forever to make up the tank again. We decided that the Cadet was what we wanted again in this house. Bought one two weeks ago, buying another one tomorrow. We haven't had any issues with this model yet. I do know that should the flush valve go out, they are available at our local plumbing supplier. Home depot does not carry this valve for what ever reason. Honestly, they really should. However, we are happy with the little "two speed toilet" .

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mball572 Just OK - single flush 4 Max is a better choice
Decided to try the dual flush since the we were so happy with our other American standard and its powerful flush. This one generally flushes ok but not nearly as strong as the "10" rating and doesn't clean the bowl completely all the time. You must also hold down the button for at least 2 seconds or it will partially flush. Wish I would have bought the same model as before.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RockyMtnGal Shallow Shape of Bowl Catches Toilet Paper & It Never Goes Down
The bowl is not deep enough on the front part and so (if you are female) and you put paper in it, it just sits there and never really touches the water. You have to "hike" the paper (like a football) to the back of the bowl. Even then, it doesn't always work. Every day or so I have to use a toilet brush to scoot the paper down to the water so it will go down. It is a terrible bowl design. The toilet flushes well and has never clogged, but the bowl needs to be deeper in the front.

Good flushing capacity. Not too wide. Simple, timeless design.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheFreezy2005 Great Toilet at a Great Price
So far I'm really happy with this toilet.
First off, this toilet has a much smaller tank than the unit it replaced. That by itself makes the bathroom feel a bit larger. The buttons on top for the flush are nice and simple. Out of the way and fit into the design well. They function with firm feedback.
Installing the toilet was easy. It came with everything needed for the install including a wax ring and "tools" to get the job done. The only thing you may need is a longer water supply hose as in my case, the tank sat up a bit higher tan the original.
The two flush options work well. My wife and I have had no issues with flushing and getting waste down the drain. Even the 1 gallon option has been working for solids. I guess your millage will vary with that. However, it is nice to think that we'll be saving quite a bit of water.
As long as the toilets holds up for the next 10 years, I'll be completely happy with this purchase.
