Believe it or not, there's a reason a watering can is a better way to tend to your plants than the pitcher you borrowed from the kitchen. The long spout — which points up on Eva Solo's Aquastar for easier storage — produces a calm, even flow that can be directed exactly where the water's needed. And they hold a lot more H2O (in this case, two litres), so you don't need to keep running back to the spigot.
Besides, who says everything in your home can't be a well-designed object of beauty? The Aquastar looks like it could just as easily double as a carafe on your dining table, and at just north of $US40, you just might want to use it as a conversation piece and a watering can.
