Attractive, sturdy, user-friendly. Beautiful color combo (green and copper), strong steel build, and 1-gallon capacity. Sprinkler head is removable when you need a powerful flow.
Copper accents are not real copper. Occasional reports of leakage around the sprinkler head.
Rugged w/an attractive vintage look. Weather-resistant steel construction holds up for years of use. Capable of watering lots of plants without refilling; holds 2 1/2 gallons.
Heavy when full. The sprinkling head is not removable, and the plastic handle covering is flimsy.
Classic, 2-gallon design for extended watering. Removable sprinkler head for two types of water flow. Easy to fill and looks great. Inexpensive.
The holes on the sprinkler head are tiny, which lessens water flow. Some reports of leaks around the sprinkler head connection.
Innovative, spout-rotating design makes it easy to fill. Soft, cushioned handles are comfortable to hold. The 3.2-quart capacity is just right for gardeners who don't want to carry a heavy can.
The plastic feels somewhat thin, and there are some reports of leaking around the nozzle attachment.
Though it isn't fancy, the sturdy resin build, 1-gallon capacity, and 1-piece design is practical and resists leaks.
The spout is a bit large and awkward when watering small, delicate plants. On the other hand, the filling hole on top of the can is somewhat small and challenging to fill.

Whether you have an indoor garden, you're nurturing seedlings, or some of your outdoor plants need a little extra TLC, a watering can is a must-have for every gardener. Although it may seem like a simple item, there are a few elements you need to consider before choosing the perfect one. Water is heavy, so a large watering can may be too hard to handle. You will want one that has a comfortable grip, a long reach, and a large fill hole. Additionally, a removable rose (the shower-like attachment) is important for flexibility. Plastic or galvanized steel are your most durable options, but if the look is important, go for the whimsy – anything that makes a chore more fun is a good thing.
