    Would make a great knife coating. Would settle the what knife aspect prevents food from sticking once and for all.

    Looks pretty cool when the ketchup and mayo slide out. Like they are fully liquid.

    I think they should work on more important projects than how to keep people from wasting the last tablespoon or two of mayo or ketchup. Maybe that technology could be used on oil pipe lines to help keep the oil flowing without building up on the walls and requiring periodic cleaning.

    This concerns me, Does the coating break down when it sits on the shelf for long periods? "Non-toxic" doesn't particularly encourage me. Plastic Breaks down and when our bodies consume these chemicals that have been released into our food, it messes with hormones that tell our bodies whether or not to retain fat.

    +1 on more important applications.

    That being said, It's kindah neat.

    That is true, but those Japanese mayo containers get so flat that they fit anywhere in the fridge door.

    I know numerous skinny people on special diets for clogged arteries. This entire fat,cholesterol, artery thing needs to be carefully reexamined.

    Hienz controls approx. 50% of the ketchup market. They sell 650,000,000 bottles per year. 1oz per bottle equals 20,312.5 tons per year for Hienz alone just for ketchup..
    Hienz probably care how much of an already puchased product gets thrown away, in fact it works in their favor.
    The selling point would no more slapping the bottle, sticking a knife up it, not having it splatter out on someones clothes, etc.
