BetterBottle carboys are not at all like other plastic carboys. The special PET, used to make BetterBottle carboys, is non-absorbing, non-porous, and non-wetting (hydrophobic), so it will not carry over flavors from one batch of wine or beer to the next and it is easier to clean and sanitize than glass or other plastics. BetterBottle carboys are ideal for home winemaking and home brewing. Better Bottle carboys are:
- Designed to be strong, scuff resistant, easy to handle, and essentially unbreakable
- Pure – Taste- and odor-free, BPA-free, DEHP-free, plasticizer-free
- Virtually impermeable to oxygen
- Extraordinarily easy to wash and sanitize (no brushes necessary)
- Clear and colorless
