Are you looking for a designer toilet stool that will change your toilet time for the better? Look no further than the PROPPR! Our award-winning poop stool has once again caught the attention of the New York Times Wirecutter team and has made the list as a top 5 toilet stool!
With its ergonomic design and appealing aesthetic, the PROPPR is quickly becoming a must-have item in bathrooms, not only here in Australia, but also across America.
So… let’s start from the beginning.
Several years ago, just as we were launching the PROPPR in the US market, the New York Times Wirecutter team road-tested and reviewed a range of toilet stools, selecting the best in class in a number of categories. We made the list then and we’ve made it again this year – cue happy dance – landing the PROPPR as a top 5 toilet stool and being awarded a Wirecutter ‘top pick’ for 2023.
Why the PROPPR is a Wirecutter Top Pick
There are plenty of reasons to love the PROPPR (if we do say so ourselves!), but Wirecutter’s editors say that its top-notch performance and beautiful design “turns a perfunctory accessory into a statement piece”. The team’s pick was the PROPPR Acer in clear and they loved it for its camouflage properties, acknowledging it as the “toilet stool that in no way looks like a toilet stool”.
How Were Toilet Stools Selected for Review?
The team poured through online customer reviews along with google searches to find a mix of both big name and lesser-known brands, to arrive at a mix of wooden, folding and plastic stools for consideration and testing. Importantly, from previous research they knew they had to eliminate (wink wink) anything that had excessive ridges or grooves to collect dust or splashes and make cleaning more difficult.
And one of the things we think helps the PROPPR toilet foot stools stand out is our sleek design with no holes or grooves to navigate when cleaning.
In the end there were 13 stools which were road tested before the top 5 toilet stools were decided upon. Consideration was given to slip factor (or in fact non-slip), ease of cleaning, aesthetics and comfort.
Benefits of a Toilet Foot Stool
So, we’ve come to the attention of the market in terms of being named a top 5 toilet stool – cheers to us – but what’s the big deal about toilet foot stools anyway?
Using a toilet foot stool is designed to replicate the ‘squat’ position on the western pedestal toilet. It is how we were meant to ‘go’.
Here are just a few of the benefits that toilet foot stools like the PROPPR offer:
- Replicates the ‘proppr’ squat position on the toilet – The PROPPR is designed to get you into the PROPPR position to poo on the western pedestal toilet, and its ergonomic design makes it comfortable to use.
- Helps make your #2s quicker and more complete – Eliminating completely and often helps maintain good colon health. And, when our colons are clearer our bodies stand a better chance of absorbing all the nutrients from the food we eat, allowing us to enjoy more energy.
- Reduces the risk of bowel health issues – The colon is the main organ for the storage and elimination of waste and toxins from our bodies. Going regularly and more completely reduces the build-up between each bowel movement and also the accumulation of toxins. With a more complete bowel movement we can help reduce the risk of many of the issues that affect us in modern western cultures such as bowel disease, constipation, haemorrhoids, bloating and many more.
- Discrete, easy to manoeuvre and store – the PROPPR was deliberately designed not to wrap around the toilet pedestal for aesthetic reasons; and also due to the wide variety of bathroom sizes and toilet designs now available. It’s intended to fit neatly and discretely to the side of most toilets when not in use. This provides not only a better aesthetic, but also reduces the potential for it to be a trip hazard, given it can be easily tucked away.
- A one-off investment in your gut health – The PROPPR is intended to be a one-off purchase for daily use, and if looked after, it will last a lifetime. In addition, consider the price of the PROPPR against the cost of ongoing treatments with health professionals or the purchase of laxatives and supplements that may not assist over the long term.
The PROPPR is an essential toilet accessory for anyone looking to upgrade their bathroom in 2023. And, with its stylish look and durable construction, the PROPPR will be sure to last you for many years. With all these benefits combined, the PROPPR is definitely a must-have for any modern bathroom this year!
