In the realm of culinary hacks, Casey Rieger has introduced a game-changing technique that’s capturing attention worldwide. No longer will you find yourself battling with a Heinz ketchup bottle, trying to coax out those final stubborn drops.

Leveraging the principles of centripetal force, Casey’s innovative approach promises to transform our interactions with condiment containers.

If you’ve ever been left wanting more from your ketchup bottle, prepare to be enlightened.

In the beginning of the video, Casey initiates her presentation, declaring,

“OK, I saw somebody do this on TikTok and thought it was genius so I’m gonna give it a try.

You know when you want the last bit of ketchup and most people hit it on the palm like that, but if you want the whole bottle…”

She demonstrates an innovative method to extract the residual ketchup from the bottle. By spinning it in an expansive circular motion, she creates a centripetal force that propels the ketchup toward the bottle’s opening, effectively gathering all of it at the top.

Casey concludes, visibly satisfied with the outcome, “How cool is that?” (video below).

The hack involves utilizing physics to ensure no drop of ketchup is wasted. The remaining ketchup is forced towards the opening by spinning the bottle, making it easily accessible and eliminating the need for the traditional ‘bottle tap’.

This method could be applied to various condiment bottles, offering a universal solution to the age-old problem of accessing the last bits of a product.

Public Reactions & Humor

Commenters promptly weighed in with their thoughts and light-hearted jests about the ketchup extraction hack showcased in the video.

One user, envisioning a possible mishap, wrote,

“yup, I would probably forget to check the lid and repaint my kitchen with ketchup.”

Another commenter provided a simpler solution, suggesting, “Or just store it upside down?”

A user brought a humorous perspective into consideration, asserting, “My shoulder would never work again,” highlighting the potential physical effort needed for the spinning method.

An additional comment played along with the humor, light-heartedly inquiring,

“Do you have any tips on how to put a dislocated shoulder back in place?”

These reactions demonstrate a mixture of amusement and playful skepticism from the audience, showcasing how social media platforms enable lively interactions and exchanges of various viewpoints and creative ideas in response to the video.

The Science Behind the Swing

The debate on whether the force involved in this ketchup extraction hack is centrifugal or centripetal is noteworthy. Centrifugal force is often considered an apparent force that acts outward on a body moving around a center, arising from the body’s inertia.

On the other hand, centripetal force is a real force that keeps a body moving uniformly along a circular path and is directed along the radius towards the center.

Regardless of the scientific terminology, the method proves efficient in moving the ketchup towards the bottle’s mouth, making it easier to pour out the remaining contents.
