after selling last year for as much as $1.40.{end quote}

Egad! Those carafes were seasoned! Makes you wonder what other food prep 
equipment is thusly seasoned, and what microbial mutations live there~ ~ ~!
Ever notice when mechanical equipment is newly built or rebuilt, and no 
longer seasoned, how well it runs? Correlation? Big time.

"seasoned," a euphemism for Filthy. Standards are adjusted accordingly.
