Finally! A Ketchup Bottle That Pours Like Milk [Video]
It has been one of the world's biggest non-problem problems....getting the last of the ketchup from the bottle. We have all been there, waiting forever for the ketchup to pour out, especially when you are down to the last little bit of ketchup that just won't pour out......Why??? Would somebody just please explain why this happens!!! Well, leave it to the kids at MIT, (Massachusetts Institute of Tecnology), to finally put an end to this problem. They have created a condiment bottle that ketchup CANNOT stick to.
The secret lies in a substance called 'LiquiGlide', which is a non-toxic, FDA-approved coating that can be applied to the interior of bottles. The best part is that no matter what the bottle is made of, glass or plastic for instance, the ketchup will flow out like milk from a carton.
This technology could actually reduce food waste in the $33 billion condiment industry. According to MIT PhD candidate Dave Smith, "The new bottles could save one million tons of food from being thrown out every year."
LiquiGlide obviously was not intended for ketchup ----- it was originally designed to be used as an anti-icing coating , or a pipe coating that might help reduce oil and gas clogs. All that really matters is that ketchup can flow freely and easily and all is finally....finally right with the world. See the bottle in action below.
