Proof. Let $K_ i$ be a family of fields. If $f = (f_ i) \in \prod K_ i$, then the ideal generated by $f$ is the same as the ideal generated by the idempotent $e = (e_ i)$ with $e_ i = 0, 1$ according to whether $f_ i$ is $0$ or not. Thus $D(f) = D(e)$ is open and closed and we conclude by Lemma 15.104.5 and Algebra, Lemma 10.26.5. $\square$

Second line of the proof,

Instead of "whether f_i is 0, 1", it should be "whether f_i is 0 or not".
