Watering Can

By the recommendation of Real Simple I purchased the:
Stack by Plastec Industries, $3
"With its streamlined design and extra-long spout, this can prevents spillage when watering small potted plants. In four colors. Capacity: 1/2 gallon." from Real Simple.

Purchase Price: $3.50 (on sale from $4.00) from Lowes.

Rating: 9/10

This watering can is pretty basic, it is made of plastic and holds about four cups of water. The water leaks over the sides of the spout when watering too fast. This can was designed so that multiple watering cans are stackable for easy storage, but I cannot see why anyone would need more than one watering can. I do however like the open top, as it allows for all the water to evaporate, so no stagnant water is left in the can. Overall the design is nice, it has modern clean lines, this can is on the pricier side, (I cannot justify anything that is made of plastic and made in China to be more than one dollar).

If this watering can cost half the price: Buy it!
If this watering can cost twice the price: No way!
At the current price: Go to the 99 cents store to purchase another made in China can.

What Jon thinks:

Jon has no opinion, as he is not allowed to water the plants anymore, after over watering our other plants and causing root rot.
