Sorry, I did not see that alert on the tag. I would call Fiskars customer line to ask: 1-866-348-5661. Hope that helps!

1.6 Gal. Black Plastic Easy Pour Watering Can is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst watering can I ever owned This thing is without a doubt the most poorly designed watering can I'v ever owned! It's called "Easy Pour" but should be called "Very Poor" instead. The head is cheaply made, when you set the can down empty it tips over forward and won't sit level. It doesn't matter how you adjust the head, water just pours out of the hole. If you turn it sideways to try and keep the water from flowing out of the hole it just comes out everywhere. This is a very poorly designed product and I'm surprised at the good reviews posted here! I returned mine to Home Depot and got my money back. Bought a much cheaper watering can and it works perfectly. Bad design, don't buy it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile watering can, easy to use Most of the common water can problems have been solved with this one. The offset filling hole alleviates the problem of squeezing a spigot or hose in between the can handle and hole. Filling it from the side is rather easy. The can itself is nice and lightweight. The rotating spigot is a nice touch. A quick turn changes the pour from rain shower to direct pour. The direct pour saves time with dragging a hose around to the plant. I was worried at how tightly the watering head was secured to the spout. It has held well so far. It has taken me a little while to get used to how quickly the can pours once tilted. Overall, a great watering can!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive Watering Can The off-set opening on this watering can does make it very easy to fill! You do need to follow the directions and line up the arrows for the sprinkling attachment or you will not get the sprinkling effect. It's a very attractive watering can and a nice size - not too big - not too small.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dysfunctional Design -- Did they test it on real flats of seedlings?? I do not understand the five-star ratings some people gave the Fiskars 1.6- liter black watering can. The traditional watering can spout is attached very low down on the body of the can, whereas the Fiskars can has it attached very high up. This has serious consequences for effective functioning. You have to tip the Fiskars can far over in order to get flow. But then the flow is copious and the spout puts out a flood of water. This would just wash out my flower, vegetable, and especially succulent seedlings planted in flats. The flow issue is exacerbated by the awful rose design: if you keep the rose in the holes-up configuration, the flow is straight out the large hole, so you can't produce a "gentle rain" effect. But if you keep the rose in the holes-down configuration, the flow is very large over a limited area, i.e., only the bottom half of the holed surface. If you tilt the can further over to distribute the flow evenly over the whole holed surface, some of the water goes into the large hole. The reason for using a watering can instead of a sprayer is that you want a significant volume per unit time, which a sprayer does not provide; the reason for using a watering can instead of a hose is that you get more control of the water flow and spread. The Fiskars all-or-nothing design defeats both of these purposes. I can pour better into my pots with just a gallon milk jug. I have trouble believing that any experienced garden person actually tested the design before it was put into production. (I am a registered professional engineer and I am of the opinion that production of a cheap "good enough that a lot of people will never know the difference" design occurs pretty often.) I promptly returned the Fiskars can I bought and have had to resume my search for an equivalent of my wonderful old Dramm can, which after perhaps 16 years and several patches is finally crumbling irretrievably due to sun exposure; the new Dramms are not the same since they too have cheaped out. I suspect the black color of the Fiskars can will cause it to deteriorate even faster than my beloved Dramm did. In short, I advise everybody to look for a watering can that actually does what a watering can should do, unlike this Fiskars model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use watering can This is a nice light-duty watering can. Unlike many, it is light weight and not bulky. It holds 1.6 gallons of water which is is sufficient to water a few plant containers before refilling. If the capacity is too large, I find my back protesting at the weight of the water. The can is black moulded plastic in a slender profile which makes it easy to store without taking up a whole shelf like the round ones do. It is unobtrusive on the deck where it lives during the summer. The hole is off center for easy filling at the faucet and not too large so water does not slop out. The spout had a nice feature of being able to twist and change from pour to showering mode. The shower area is large and has enough small holes to be gentle on the plants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Smooth Design The Fiskars water can comes unassembled, to put the head on you have to slip the watering head over the neck of the spout while at the same time making sure you line up the notch to the head. Once this is done, your ready to use the watering can. Yet there is still one more trick the user has to master, turning the head to either a shower or a pour. At the base of the head there are knurls for a firm grip in turning the base of the head, it even has icons to let you know in what direction you may want to turn it. It really doesn't matter because it turns both ways. Filling is made a lot easier with the offset filling hole so it can fit under a spigot or put the end of your hose into it. Made of heavy/thick polyethylene, it holds 1.6 gallons of water, the handle is nice and smooth. In fact the finish on the entire watering can is very smooth, without any burs. Nice quality job. Looking for a watering can, give this one a consideration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well designed Fiskars is known for ergonomics and this watering can is no exception. The offset filling hole in itself is a huge improvement over the standard watering can. The steady stream to spray adjustment is super easy to adjust, and there are no leaks. A real pleasure to use, especially when dragging out the hose is overkill.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I DIDN'T LIKE IT UNTIL I ADJUSTED ONE SMALL THING Dear manufacturer: Your design is terrible. If I wanted the ability to pour water I could've just remove the spout tip. BUT FOUND A WORK-AROUND (more on that in a second). If you try to use it straight-on (positioned how it appears in the photo), you'll partially sprinkle/pour water onto your fragile seedlings! This was TRULY frustrating. The tag has some info, but doesn't show the odd angle they expect you to use it at (but my photo does). The orange tip must be tilted left or right. It's not a simple tilt either (you must line it up correctly). And you can hardly see the imprinted markings in the plastic letting you know which way is which. USING A WATERING CAN SHOULDN'T BE SO FRUSTRATING. Who wants to sit there squinting at it, trying to figure out which way to twist it? And it's the black spout (not the orange cap) that you twist unfortunately. After LOTS of frustration, I took the tip off the spout and saw the orange plastic piece inside with a hole on one side and solid plastic on the other (see photos). I managed to SET IT HOW I WANT (SPRINKLE ONLY) by doing the following: 1)Take tip off, 2)Notice how it's half orange solid plastic / half hole, 3)Put it back on the long nozzle and turn it just a bit, 4)Take it off again to see if you managed to get the black outer plastic lined up with the orange piece inside! Now I can finally use it like a normally watering can! I may glue it in place because bumping it causes it to be out of position again. I don't have any potted plants, but if you do and don't mind a hassle - then I guess this is for you. At least it doesn't gush water like the cheaper $4.88 green one Home Depot sells. That's why I chose this, as Home Depot had no other options. I'm glad I CAN NOW USE THE SPOUT STRAIGHT!
