Stand the bottle in warm water.
Basically though, buy the squeezy stuff, so much less hassle!

What he said.
The heat will liquify the ketchup and it'll come out of the jar.

And a note. In Australia we never say the word ketchup. I first heard of the word on a Garfield comic and was like wtf. I googled it up and that told me what it was. In Australia we say "tomato sauce".

See where the 57 is embossed in the glass? Not the top label the actual glass. While holding the bottle upside down - karate chop the 57 until the ketchup comes out.

Hehe. Should be a fun thread. Just tilt the bottle about -15 degrees from horizontal and tap on the area where the bottle curves into the neck - will flow in about 4 taps.

The tapping on Heinz 57 usually works for me as well..though, only do that on new bottles, otherwise it'll flow a little too easily..

On a brand new bottle, I've also found that shoving a knife inside to start the flow helps..

Though, nowadays I just buy the plastic squeeze kind..:)

If you're at a restaurant, hold the bottle on its side and use a butter knife to work the ketchup out. Always use a clean knife, of course.

Surely you get the waiter to do it, and then when he splodges it all over your food you can claim a free meal....

1) Attach a clean plastic extension tube to an air nozzle attachment for a portable air compressor.
2) Invert the ketchup bottle and fully insert the plastic tube
3) Press the control button on the air nozzle
4) Be sure to video and share the results with us

If that's what it takes, he can splodge over my food any time.

Ok...I'm curious. In Australia if ketchup is called tomato sauce...then what is tomato sauce called (the stuff you use as an ingredient in spaghetti sauce, lasagna, etc.)?:)

And if tomato sauce (for spaghetti & lasagna) is called tomato sauce...then how do you know the difference between tomato sauce (ketchup) and tomato sauce (spaghetti)?;)

so many suggestions, too little ketchup bottles to try them out on.....

as for why I haven't bought a squeezy: i have an empty squeezy bottle, and am pouring the glass bottle contents into it, as they are cheaper.

Student life.....

I will have to bookmark this thread for next time i need to do it! :P

I haven't used a glass catsup (hey, there's another word for the same thing) bottle in years…but it makes me feel young when I see one at old fashioned burger joints.

Now I want a burger.

Why didn't you say before this was a practical problem? So, here is one fairly cheap and easy soloution.

1) warm the glass bottle (hot water immersion works well)
2) remove the lid from the two bottles and put mouth to mouth (may have to fabricate some type of adapter if there is too much disparity in opening size
3) wrap the joint with plastic wrap (like saran wrap)
4) then duct tape over the joint for strength, invert so glass bottle is on top and set aside somewhere relatively warm and let gravity do its work (probably need to prop or brace it so you don't get any unwelcome surprises

Or "Dead 'orse" (horse for those that coulnt work it out ) lol

Bolognaise/pasta sauce or however you spell it . . . .

And if tomato sauce (for spaghetti & lasagna) is called tomato sauce...then how do you know the difference between tomato sauce (ketchup) and tomato sauce (spaghetti)?;)

- Nick

There in different aisle in the supermarket. Dead 'orse is in the sauce/condiments section and the 'other' one is in the section close to the pasta.

The pasta sauce is a food within itself with the ingredients in the jar, where as Tomato Sauce is just that. . . . . A sauce.

In all fairness though, Tomato Sauce and Ketchup are 2 completely different sauces/taste . . . .I have had both and Ketchup is more sour than our Tomato sauce


Hmmm interesting Nick. Wiki states Tomato Sauce as the thing you put on Pasta and the such . . . . . . And Ketchup from wiki

Ketchup (or Catsup) (American English and Canadian English) or tomato sauce (Commonwealth English) is a sweet-and-sour condiment typically made from tomatoes, vinegar, sugar or high-fructose corn syrup, and an assortment of vegetable seasonings and spices such as onions, allspice, cloves, cinnamon, garlic, and celery.[1] Ketchup is often used with chips (French fries), hamburgers, sandwiches and grilled or fried meat. Ketchup is also used as a base for various sauces. It is a typical accompaniment for the meat pies of Australia and New Zealand.

Thanks now i am totally confused hahaha ;P

With the cap on the bottle, hold it upside down in one hand and smack your other palm in a downward stabbing motion with the cap. Should take one good smack. The ketchup will head to the opening end with a loud whack and when you open the bottle it should pour out easily.

Dead easy Rob.

Just hold the bottle above your nice clean white shirt, and it will pout out everywhere!

hahaha this did make me laugh. so true aswell! It's either that, or it spews out all over everything on your plate, when you wanted a controlled dollop.

Here in the UK, a lot of people call it simply "Red Sauce", particularly in Scotland. Goes with Brown Sauce i guess.

Seems the "heat bottle" method is the most popular. Razormac's method is particularly inventive, may be a funny project for a rainy day :P

iWhat, have you already covered this common problem? :D

I just grab that 57 that's sticking up on the glass on either side of the bottle with my thumb and middle finger, hold it at a 45 degree angle, and just give it a little shake or two!

I keep the near empties balanced on their lids in between other bottles in the fridge door.
Next time I need to use them, I just keep it upside down and open it over what I need, and it just slushes out :)

In Australia we never say the word ketchup. ...we say "tomato sauce".
What about "tomato paste"? ( makes the food stick to anything! ) ;)

...all over the place. In fact, that happens when you open it. It "explodes".

Any more than a couple shakes and you are just playing with it :)
