Best car products revealed at Honest John Awards

The Iceplane wins automotive product of the year!

Forget the Oscars. Move over BAFTA. The Honest John awards are in town.

For the first time ever, Honest John handed out 15 awards to car-related products. From tyres to car experience days, the awards covered a wide range of products and activities.

Every award was highly coveted, but the biggest of them all had to be the ‘Product of the Year: Most Popular with Readers’ award, as voted for by Honest John readers themselves.

And in today’s modern world of goofy gadgets and technological treats, you’d imagine the award to go to something fairly fancy, right? Wrong.

It went to an ice scraper.

Most popular with readers: Iceplane
The Iceplane may sound like a pretty treacherous mode of Arctic transport, but it’s actually something much simpler. It’s just a very, very good ice scraper for your windscreen. Honest John rated it highly, and clearly their readers did too.

Honest John’s Reviews Editor John Slavin said: “Cheap to buy and easy to use, the Iceplane has proven to be a hit with our readers, with its twin-blade design allowing you to clear a frozen windscreen in a matter of seconds.

“We rated it highly when we tested it in the winter – and consequently it’s proven popular with our readers, many of whom made the decision to buy one. For just over a fiver, you can’t really go wrong, can you?”
