“The extra star is for the unusually efficient space-saving design!” says an Amazon reviewer. “Love the two in one application. It would be great for camping. It wasn’t that hard to pull the whole thing into a watering can, which is the main reason for buying this, and to have a portable bucket is a bonus. Love the watering sprout, worked great and decent flow for our window planters.”

When you walk, the water doesn’t splash out from the spout. The spout is upright so it stores without taking up much space. I love it so much I keep it on the counter because it just makes me so happy. I’d give it 10 stars if I could. So adorable.”

Suitable for all kinds of watering, the can features a pointed spout that provides good flow control, while the overall one-piece construction eliminates leaks. The can holds a 1/2 gallon of water.
“Holds just enough for me to water my four potted plants outside,” says an Amazon reviewer. “The end of the spout can be removed to produce a heavy stream of water, or placed facing up for a gentle shower, or placed facing down for regular sprinkling of leaves and soil. It’s sturdy plastic with a nice handle and a covering over half the top to prevent splashing out. I’m very pleased with this.”
Behrens 3-Gallon Steel Watering Can
This hot-dipped steel watering can provides the strength and durability of steel while offering a vintage look. What’s especially nice about the steel is that it won’t absorb odors, won’t rust and is fully recyclable. The large rose (head) disperses water evenly, but is not meant to be detached.
One Amazon reviewer says, “This watering can is exactly what I wanted. It holds a lot of water. I have had it now for over two months and not a bit of evidence that it will ever rust (that was a worry I had because I’ve read reviews on other cans and rust is a common issue), and I leave water in it most nights. I also leave it outside.The sprinkle pattern it produces is nice and wide and throws the water far, if you let the water go full-blast, which is done by giving it a more pronounced tip forward. But when I want the spray to not go as far, that’s not a problem. I just don’t tip it as much and that controls the spray pattern.”
