I bought this because I was unhappy with my cheapy 6 litre oil drain pan I bought for £6, which was big and wide enough but when it came to pouring the waste oil into disposal containers it was always a slow hit and miss affair due to the fact that the pouring spout was poorly designed.
At 16 litres this is total over kill for me, but I wanted the design of the enclosed pouring spout. It did not disappoint as now I can pour the waste fluid into the disposal containers with ease, even without using a funnel because the spout is angled down. They may make a smaller capacity pan in this design & colour but I haven't seen them. I chose green because I wanted to see the dirt easier and therefore clean it easier. The screw cap on the end of the spout works well and stops any mess from occurring.
For tools you're going to use for a long time it make sense to buy a properly designed product at the start!
