Toilets that flush well???

I am wondering what brands of home toilets flush the best.
Seems some nowadays get plugged easily, or do not flush well.
Advice wanted please.

The Thomas Crapper that came with our house thirteen years ago has never flushed properly.
The American Standard has performed like a champ

The problem I have noticed is these new low water use toilets.
I have never had a bad toilet in any house, until now.
They say that these save water, but they just do not flush well.
And it can take 5 flushes to clear the bowl, so I actually think they waste water, not save it.
I want a HIGH water flow toilet that actually flushes good.

Thanks for replying riponredTJ.

I live in the desert. I am water hauling desert trash. We don't have a well . . (YET). We also had the old solar set up and was off the grid until just recently. I will tell you why toilets do not flush. Set your float inside as HIGH as it will go, shutting the water off at the maximum possible setting. That's the problem. The new ones are water conserving. It takes at least 3 gals to flush propperly. Set the float high and haul the dang water. It beats wading through crap water cause it didn't flush properly and clogged because of it. Some might argue, opinions are opinions, I base my opinion on personal experiance.
