Best toilet for flushing hard stools

I pass a very large formed hard stool. Toilets get clogged easily unless the stool is broken into pieces before flushing. Does anybody have suggestions on how to avoid toilet overflows?

I currently have a 3.5Gallon toilet in the U.S. and Iím afraid to replace it with a 1.6 gallon toilet.

Is the Toto brand from Japan really unique and better at flushing hard formed stools? Since I think it is 1.6 gallon only, I really wonder.

Can somebody point me to some comparisons of toilets or some resources, web sites, etc.. that could help.

Thank you.
