About this deal

With other watering cans we tested, the rose (the sprinkler-type spout) can be removed to allow you to pour water faster onto your plants, which is a very handy feature. But with this can, you don’t even have to remove the rose to get the same benefits—with its twistable spout, you can easily switch between "sprinkle" and "pour" modes. However, this watering may be harder to use with plants in high places. We noted that you really have to tip this model to get a strong pour on hanging plants. However, you could always take the plant down to water it—if it’s not too much of a hassle. Working days are defined as Monday-Friday 8am-7pm inclusive, excluding Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays.

Please note that during particularly busy periods, it may take a little longer to receive your delivery and our carrier may attempt to deliver to you on a Saturday. The price is quite high and caused us to deduct points for value: You could get other aesthetically pleasing watering cans for less. For that reason, this watering can might be best if you're looking for a good splurge item that also doubles as decor. It would also be a wonderful gift for someone with a large collection of houseplants. The one downside of this can is its small capacity, although this made it easy to fill, even under a bathroom sink. We don't think this watering can would be great for watering a large group of plants, as it would take forever to constantly refill, but if you just have one or two plants in your collection, this is an excellent option.The stainless steel did suffer some damage when it was dropped on concrete: A small scratch when it was dropped empty and a dent when it was dropped full, but neither of these affected the functionality of the can—it could still sit steady and hold water. Keep in mind, a stainless steel can like this one is best kept out of the garden. "Metal cans are great rustic pieces that work well for watering indoor plants, but if you don't paint them to seal out the elements, they can easily rust and corrode," says Stark, adding, "They're best used inside as you're less prone to drop them and dent or damage the metal." Anything of a nature that for hygiene or associated health and safety - this includes the Outdoor Spas, Mattresses and Divan Sets You can also select a convenient day to receive your delivery by choosing a named day delivery (delivery on working days only). Despite its small size, we are fans of this can for its great aim and reach for all sizes of plants. The long spout makes it comfortable to reach higher hanging plants, plus we love the minimalist brushed metal finish. Although the handle wasn't distinctly ergonomic, it balanced well in our hands and still felt comfortable to hold.

Keep in mind that 1 gallon of water weighs more than 8 pounds. Watering plants at ground level with a large watering can should be sustainable for a short period of time. But if you have plants that are at waist level or above your head, such as in a hanging basket on a porch, lifting a full watering can may be cumbersome. In those cases, a smaller watering that requires more frequent refills works better than one with a large capacity, and, as Stark says, "Using a smaller can on hanging plants also reduces your chances of dropping it." Just like the other watering cans in this roundup, this model passed all of our drop tests except the round, where it was full and dropped on concrete. It dented and lost some paint, but this didn't affect usability. The price of this watering can is a little higher than some of the more basic cans on this list, but we think it's reasonable given the quality and unique design.Because the can is so small, it can be easily filled in either a bathroom or kitchen sink, but the small capacity means that it's not well-suited for a large plant collection. We recommend keeping this watering can indoors as the wooden handle may not fare as well as the powder-coated stainless steel body. In watering cans, attractive design, good balance, and grip do not always go hand in hand. A watering can needs good balance so it doesn't easily topple over. Generally, the longer and bulkier the spout, the poorer the balance. If the spout is fairly thin, it won't necessarily be prone to tipping. "A can with a slightly wider base can help balance out a heavier spout, and ones with heavier metal accents may also be more stable," says Stark.

For established houseplants and container plants, watering cans with free-flow spouts are best because the water is directed right into the container with minimal spills. The longer the spout, the more precisely you can aim the water. This is especially important for plants in hard-to-reach locations, as well as plants whose lush foliage obstructs the soil. "A longer spout gives you more control to water smaller pots, and plants that are sensitive to water on the foliage will require a longer spout so you can be more precise and avoid splashing the leaves," says Stark. This watering can also passed all of our drop tests, except when dropped on concrete while full of water. It only suffered a large dent in the corner but didn't leak at all. While this design isn't the most attractive watering can—we think it kind of looks more like a leaf blower—but we didn't mind the trade-off considering how well it worked, especially for watering plants in a garden. Easily the most glamorous choice on our list, this watering can won points for its good looks on top of its effectiveness. We loved the subtle, hammered texture that made it look "extra luxe," and we'd happily show it off in one of our homes. This watering can would look nice sitting on a shelf by your houseplants and is a great design for people without a lot of storage who would need to keep it on display. We also want to point out that the shiny exterior won't last unless you're willing to maintain it, but many people love the look of the patina that copper products develop with time. At 65 ounces, this can doesn't hold a lot of water, but we managed to fill it to 80 ounces with only minimal splashing while carrying it with one hand. We're figuring that 65 ounces would be a more reasonable amount to guarantee no spills. For reasons of hygiene and safety, personal grooming products, cosmetics or items of intimate clothing cannot be returned.

The verdict: Watering cans

Out of all the cans we tested, the Bloem Easy Pour Watering Canstood out for its unique, two-handle design (including one with hinges), which made it easier to maneuver and balance when full compared to other options. We also appreciated the Fasmov Plastic Watering Can—the two ridges on the handle made it easy to grip and allowed us to pour accurately without spilling. Another nifty feature of this watering can is the cap that can be secured over the fill hole. It not only prevents splashing, but it will also help deter critters like frogs that might want to take up residence. The cap does have slits for ventilation, so it won't keep out smaller insects, but we don't consider this a major design flaw. Since this watering can doesn't have a sprinkle head, it's best for heartier plants, but it had a great pour for plants at every height, and it was easy to fill and carry. However, it failed the drop test on concrete when full of water: The bottom dented, and the can was no longer able to rest flat. The functionality seemed to be okay, though. For that reason, you'd probably want to use it indoors only.

Additionally, instead of lugging a full, large-capacity watering can up a stairwell or across a patio, you might be better off with a small watering can you refill more often. "Deciding how much you can comfortably carry is also a factor—if the can is too large, you may not be able to lift, carry, and tilt it as you need to use it," says Stark. If you have just a few petite houseplants to care for, we love this open-top watering can from Terrain. Although the handle isn't specifically listed as ergonomic, we found it surprisingly comfortable to hold The connector that attaches the handle to the watering can is the perfect place to rest your thumb for extra support and steadying. It was also easy to carry, and no water poured out despite the open design. A reliable watering can is a must-have item when caring for plants inside your home and in your garden. "You always want to look at the handle on any watering can you're considering since you'll spend a lot of time carrying it, holding it, and manipulating it to get the water out, says Jen Stark, a master gardener, interior designer, and home improvement expert, and founder of Happy DIY Home. "It should be large enough for you to comfortably grasp, and it may even have spots for your fingers to go." Ceramic watering cans are heavy and prone to chipping and breaking, so they are not suitable for outdoor use. "Ceramic watering cans come in a huge range of shapes, sizes, and designs that allow you to also display them. Just remember that if you drop one, it's going to shatter," says Stark.If you wish to return your item to Robert Dyas, you can do so by one of the following methods: 1. Request a Collection via Robert Dyas Customer Services Of all the watering cans we tested, this model stood out to us thanks to multiple unique features. The double-handle design is ergonomic, and we found the handles were comfortable for both carrying and lifting up to reach hanging flower baskets. Although this watering can has a generous capacity, it stands at less than a foot high, so it's easily fillable in a standard kitchen sink. The rose can be removed, and the spout itself can swivel, offering you the option to either direct the sprinkle upwards (for a gentler effect) or downwards, depending on the watering style your plants need. Regardless of where you use it, a metal watering can should resist rusting—look for phrases like "rust-resistant" or "powder-coated." Copper watering cans tend to be both more expensive and smaller. "They're great for indoor use, and they'll develop a pretty patina over time that turns them into rustic decor pieces, too," says Stark.
