With the traditional glass ketchup bottle, the water sits on top and spills out first when you pour. It needs to be shaken to prevent that.

That would be correct.

The watery mustard bothers me too. I just give it a few shakes.

What really irks me is that these type bottles just won't stay upright and are constantly falling over in the door shelves.

Given the option of a squeeze bottle or screw off top I'll choose the screw off top. But they are getting harder and harder to find.
The ones I really dislike are the ones you can't see the contents thru.
Call it a pet peve but I like to see the condition of what I'm putting on my food.
And always shake first. Not much worse then that shot of juice that arrives before the condiment.

Definitely shake. I even shake bottled BBQ sauce and that doesn't separate.
Maybe it's ingrained to give a shake or stir to products in a liquidy state.

As ingrained as it may be there are those times when you have a brain fart and get that plop and just say Oh *##*.

They need to develop self shaking condiment bottles.

That one I'd buy.

Hah, been there done that myself. Or I gave the mustard a quick shake when it needed a long shake.
We need a vibrating door shelf. How hard could that be? Have it come on whenever the compressor kicks on.

How about if they just make condiments that don't separate???

That would require a dreaded added emulsifying agent whose name people can't pronounce

recipe

A bit of a con! Went to make a sandwich for lunch and needed mayo but nothing came out of the Hellman's squeezy bottle. To cut a long story short I ended up cutting the bottle in half with the bread knife with the result that I retrieved [B]a full measuring cup of mayo out of it!!![/B] Another instance of the "convenient" new packaging being convenient only for the manufacturer of the contents. 3 stars 1 reviews
