Way to expensive!
You can buy this same stuff at the grocery store. Obviously I don't cook and didn't know that. I was using this for a dry hair shampoo. And it's not the right stuff. Just go to the store and buy this . It's like 2 bucks.
If you’re hoping to grab one of these square plastic containers, as a collector’s item. Forget it. They sent the new round container at whatever the over the top price was. Not the real deal don’t buy it. Very disappointed in the obvious bait and switch tactic.

A pantry staple
This is a good staple pantry must in my home, from gravies, used in my Asian cuisine, been using it as kid for baking as well. Always had this in our kitchen when Grammie cooked. Definitely good to use when stir frying as it makes the meat moist and tender.
