What a Wonderful Watering Can
on 5 August 2017
What a wonderful watering can. At first I was reluctant to pay £40 for a watering can but I have to say it really does the job. The only issue I have is that the capacity is rather small and will only do a couple of hanging baskets and I have to rush inside and refill. It is the sort of watering can I would expect from Bosch, well designed, sturdy and fit for purpose...hang on though, they sold this to me as an iron!
To say that this iron leaks is an understatement. I read the reviews and noted the white headed and sagacious ironers patiently explaining that the leaks reported were down to misuse, wooly headedness and getting the settings wrong. Well I tried all that and I can quite confidently report that regardless of the settings, the way I hold my face or the where Jupiter is in relation to Venus it leaks.
The great pity is that this iron is beautifully smooth and irons very well in between the copious splashes of water laid down on my designer underpants. One positive thing I can say is that the designers must have worked very hard to get that trickle of water to be directed into the electrical switches each time the iron is righted.
If you do get fed up of ironing you will have hours of fun trying to determine where the leaks are located. I even tried putting duct tape over the more obvious places but this just resulted in more leaks from even more mysterious places. I have to hand it to Bosch it is more intriguing than Rubik's cube.
In fairness the instructions do tell you that it leaks and that adjustment of the settings may help. It also advises to switch off the steam when ironing silk. Ignore that and empty the iron completely because it leaks with even more enthusiasm when the steam switch is set to off
