Default Looking for container and staking recommendations

Hi! I have tomato seedlings growing, and I plan on transplanting them into planters on my patio in New York City this summer. 2 summers ago I grew determinate tomatoes, and it went ok. I'm now researching planters and cages, and am trying to decide what kind of planter is best. My considerations are:
  1. Reasonably cheap, which limits me to plastic/resin or fabric planters.
  2. Not DIY - I don't have the space or tools to build something, unfortunately
  3. Large - 20 gallons or 20" diameter, for indeterminate tomatoes.
  4. Can support a cage or support (looking at the Titan cage or Tomato ladder here:
I like the look of fabric containers (smartpots is the brand), but am worried about people saying that they need extra-frequent watering. I am okay with watering every day, but if it needs to be watered 3x/day, that can get challenging. I've also heard that earthbox is good.

Looking forward to hearing from all the experts in this forum! thanks in advance
