"Firstly, its hard to find something in metal and at this price. The great thing about classic cans are the sturdy feel, the sheen of the metal so you can look into the drum and see clean or dirty water but it is using is where this comes the trumps. Opposing handle weld means you can use 2 hands to pour which plastics cannot. Also, the solid clang of putting the can on the ground. There's nothing like a classic."
"For the little bit extra cost this will last much longer than a plastic Watering Can, with a screw on rose that wont fall off and solid construction. The only thing that might improve the product would be a top handle being on a hinge but overall would recommend. Another star in the Screwfix range."
"By far the best value watering can available today. Cheaper than one I bought from a local garden centre and far stronger as the other one only lasted a few years before the spout leaked then fell off due to poor welds. This is is much stronger."
"Not just a well-made functional garden item but also a very good-looking addition to the scenery, instead of the normal plastic day-glow watering cans so plentiful. Holds a great deal of water and the detachable brass nozzle makes for easy use on grass or anything delicate. Also looks great with the sun reflecting off it. Yammos! :)"
"it is just a watering can but, great on line process, quick and efficient service in a surprisingly busy for a Sunday morning store. Lovely looking can and so much more robust than the plastic ones, oh, and the water pours out nice and controlled."
"I am really happy with the watering can as I hate the cheap throwaway plastic ones that degrade in the sunlight. This can is sturdy, well made and pleasing to the eye. I hope it will last many years."
"If your looking for a can that can also water plants, look no further... This does both! If all you need it for is to be a can, then this is perfect, made from galvanised metal it looks great and sure to be the envy of all your other cans. However, if you also need to water stuff, then this is perfect. Has a beautiful brass rose which looks and waters well."
"There is not a lot you can say about a watering can but having tired of having plastic ones that go brittle with age we decided to go back to metal ones as we still have one that my late father used in the 50's and which has outlived all the plastic Usurpers which fail after a couple of years. We bought a couple of galvanised ones from other suppliers and were pleased but when we saw the Screwfix one at a good saving we bought it. It is a good serviceable unit and looks as through it will last a long time. Who knows, my children may inherit my cans in years to come!"
"Was a little doubtful given price in comparison with renowned brand and other online sites. Much sturdier than I expected. Screw-on rose. Attractive and useful. Hope it lasts as long as it appears it might."
