Air-tight gasket in lid seals out oxygen to keep contents fresh. Perfect for home use. A removable stainless steel spigot accurately dispenses the right amount of liquid and may be removed for easy cleaning. Cleaning simply requires washing with kitchen detergent and rinsing with cold water. The fustis offered here are made from the finest available Italian 18/10 stainless steel under the best possible quality controlled conditions. All joints are TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welded to insure completely smooth interior and exterior surfaces to prevent matter accumulation. These fustis are not the more common and less expensive folded metal containers that are constructed like tin cans, and have seams that can trap food particles, leading to bacterial contamination. Fustis add more class to your kitchen and is a perfect gift for the chef or cook who has everything.
