Pouring ketchup has plagued the kitchen table for decades, but now thanks the brilliant minds at MIT we finally have a solution. MIT has created the first non-stick ketchup bottle, allowing for more peaceful dinners everywhere.
MIT we thank you for this. Even though I haven't seen a glass bottle of ketchup in like five years, it's reassuring to know that the best minds in the world are hard at work. It's also good to know that even after so many ketchup spills, man still comes out on top.
Originally, Smith’s team, which has been working for years now on developing various types of surface coatings, was pursuing different aims. “We were really interested in–and still are–using this coating for anti-icing, or for preventing clogs that form in oil and gas lines, or for non-wetting applications like, say, on windshields,” Smith says. “Somehow this sparked the idea of putting it in food bottles. It could be great just for its slippery properties. Plus, most of these other applications have a much longer time to market; we realized we could make this coating for bottles that is pretty much ready. I mean, it is ready.” As you can see.
