We've all been in that situation with a sauce bottle in hand, cautiously tipping it over our food, ready to pull it back at the first instance of overpouring.
Old school bottles made out of glass were near impossible to get the liquid out and you ended up having to pound on the bottom for ages until it ended up everywhere. Then someone made them out of plastic and made the nozzle super tough to engage, so you'd steadily increase pressure until it, again, ended up everywhere.
Clearly there's a gap in the market and that's where Slice of Sauce comes in.
The company is promising an 'all natural, no mess and flavour packed' product that will revolutionize the sauce industry.
Imagine a slice of cheese, but with tomato sauce.
"The slice is a tantalizing layer of flavour and lets you enjoy a perfect portion with every bite," says a statement on the Kickstarter campaign.
"We've got a clean label. Our ingredients are non-GMO, gluten-free, all-natural with no artificial flavours, preservatives, or high-fructose corn syrup.
"It's so easy to add a slice. Because it's in slice form, there's no sticky mess or soggy bread, no 'liquidy' separation and no uneven squeezing from a part-empty bottle like with many traditional condiments."
The woman behind this creation, Emily Williams , says the idea actually came about by accident.
The restauranteur from Michigan says she was making some BBQ sauce by braising a bunch of vegetables, but instead of chucking the normally discarded waste, they mixed them together, ground them and then dried the remaining food bits and BOOM, the slice was born.
Once they realised they could actually make slices of sauce, they set out trying to find a recipe that was free of preservatives and high fructose corn syrup.
They've already raised more than their intended goal on Kickstarter, which will be used for equipment, labour, ingredients, shipping and packaging. One thing people are pointing out on social media is the idea of each slice being individually wrapped in plastic - which might need to be addressed to be more eco-friendly.
If you order a packet, you get eight slices and they will last for a year without the need for refrigeration.
What do you think?
Is this going to be the thing that changes the game forever, or will it be one of those niche products like cheese in a spray can?
