|This article is about Forestry's Can. You may be looking for Aluminum Can from XyCraft.|
Cans are used to store and transport liquid, like a bucket, while still being able to stack them, like a Cell; however, they require one less tin and, correspondingly, the recipe produces 4 less of them.
With GregTech, the can recipe remains the same (3 tin = 12 cans), but the cell recipe changes to 4 tin = 4 cells. This makes cans more useful when playing with GregTech.
Like Cells and Buckets, Cans may be filled from any liquid source, a liquid container (such as a Tank), or a liquid machine, such as a Liquid Transposer or Squeezer. Like Cells, but unlike Buckets, a filled Can cannot be emptied onto the ground - it must be emptied into a liquid container or a machine.
Alternatively, Cans may be produced with Xycraft Aluminum Ore after it has been smelted. This is a cheaper alternative as Aluminum Ore occurs more frequently than Tin. 4 Aluminum placed on the crafting table in the same arrangement as the Cell recipe will yield 4 Cans.
