No more ketchup stuck in the bottle

A scientist at MIT — OK, the Varanasi Research Group — has come up with a solution for product stuck at the bottom of its container. See the current Heinz Tap Tap commercial. (Or my favorite Heinz commercial using Carly Simon’s Anticipation to underscore the one bad thing about good, thick ketchup: you gotta wait!)

It’s called Liquiglide and it’s a slippery coating for the inside of containers. Nothing even toothpaste, paint or arch grape jelly sticks to it. I can’t wait till this is on the market. (How bout peanut butter, folks? Seems like I throw out a quarter of the jar.

Here’s peanut butter with and without Liquiglide.
