Twist & Spout – Product Review

Review by Michael Smith (Veshengro)

Here is a brilliant concept by Italian brand Vice Versa. Swiss designer Nicolas Le Moigne designed this ergonomic water pourer and won the 2005 Macef Design Award. It’s called Verso Diverso or Twist & Spout and it also won a special Merit Award at the Housewares Fair in Milan for its unique design and utility.

Twist & SpoutTransform almost any bottle into a watering can, so to speak and, yes, it works.

How do you do it? It’s quite simple, you place it on a bottle and voila - you have an ergonomic pourer or watering can (without a “rose” though). It fits virtually any soda or water bottle with a screw-on cap. In fact, for testing the sample received I did not have a plastic soda or water bottle handy and used an empty glass bottle from Sainsbury's Basics Malt Vinegar instead and it works a treat.

  • A clever eco water pourer turns any old bottle into a watering can

  • Multi coloured

  • Fits most UK bottle types

Aside from fitting well onto the bottle and thus being able to upcycle any of those much hated plastic bottles (or even the right glass one) into a water can, especially useful for indoor plants, the pourer also works very well. Better, in fact, than the rather expensive indoor watering can that I have from a well-known British watering can maker. The latter tends to spill more water onto the window sill than it gets into the plant pot, the Twist & Spout gets it where it is wanted and needed.
