Why we like it: The Beehive Max plunger is designed to be effective on old as well as new efficiency toilets, a first for toilet plungers anywhere. Ever since the shape of toilet bowl drain outlets has changed from round to oblong, it has been more or less difficult for traditional plungers to get a tight enough seal so they can plunge well. But the Beehive takes care of that with a design that is good enough for the world’s leading toilet manufacturers such as Kohler, American Standard, and TOTO.

The Beehive toilet plunger’s design enables it to form an incredibly tight seal and plunge effectively in just about any toilet that you use it on. The T-handle makes it easier on the hands too, allowing you to hold it with an optimal grip generating great suction for your efforts. The rubber is non-marking so that even after a vigorous session of plunging, you will leave no evidence of it behind and spoil the aesthetic of the toilet. You may not mind too much anyway but that is still a good feature to have.

Why we like it: Uses a magnetic collar to hold the plunger in place, which eliminates any dripping that might occur when moving it.

One really irritating thing to deal with when it comes to sloppy toilet plungers is a tendency to leak after they are used, and that just makes the cleaning process even more tedious and messy. Fortunately, the Simplehuman plunger utilizes a magnetic collar to fasten the plunger to its cover. Now you can carry them both together and not leave a nasty trail behind where you have been walking. The cover, which is shaped like a dome, also does a good job of concealing the plunger.

The cover also contains a sizeable opening at the back for easy access to the plunger. The design of the plunger itself is intended for the modern toilet design and features a narrow flange for more efficient handling. And it has toughness on its side thanks to a stainless steel rod. The material is also ideal for an instrument that is bound get wet every time it is used and is therefore exposed to the ever-present threat of rusting.

On a more serious note, the rubber cup on this plunger is adept at building big pressure in a short time, so it is quite effective on sinks and toilets alike.
