Put it in a glass jar
Good taste but needs to be packaged in a glass bottle as doesn't come out of the plastic one.
Wasteful bottle design!
Product very good but the bottle design is horrendous, as so much remains in the bottle that I always have to open the bottle and attempt to scrape it out with a spoon handle!
When it works, why change it
Review from unilever.com
Love this mayonnaise from a jar but now all you can get is this uselss squeezy bottle. Doesn't squeeze out easily. Even kept upside down, sticks in wrong half of bottle. Impossible to get dregs out. Looking for new brand until the jars re-appear.
If only you could get all of it out of the bottle!
Excellent product - if only you could get the last 10th out of the bottle!
Great taste, but please extract it safely...
OK, so as others have said, sometimes a little engineering or other method of accessing the last of the stuff from the bottle is needed. Better that than waste food though, and my (sensible) method of avoiding waste is to take the lid off and pour some hot water (not freshly boiled as that could result in a rather nasty scalding and a visit to A&E, not a good thing at the best of times).. Then replace the lid ans give the bottle a good shake, this will dilute the product to the point where it flows beautifully from the bottle and this means that I can add it to a veggie stock for making a casserole or stew, which provides a pleasant additional taste in the meal. Or just continue to suffer without ever considering the idea of finding your own way to get the product out of the near empty container. I also tried (let us call this the "crisis induced panic method") fitting a Schrader valve (various online cyclists' supply shops sell the type that can be fitted through a hole, then tightened up with a nut on the inside of the bottle, as used in bikes with tubeless tyres), reached with a small, deep socket and an extension bar of appropriate length to reach the bottom of the bottle, then pressurising the contents to somewhere between 4 and 7 psi with a bicycle pump NOT a garage airline, please do not apply too much pressure, simply add a very gentle stroke at a time with the pump until the product comes out on opening the lid, but not so much that the product forces its way out and the bottle then takes off like some form of weapon, this information is provided as a result of my own experiments around the problem and, without trying it, then I wouldn't be sure that the water method is easier, free and much better for those who have no access to tools.. And everyone else, but it was fun trying.. "Lockdown Psychosis" is what my therapist called this series of activities, the new pills are really tasty when washed down with warm, diluted Mayonnaise! ;-) Stay Safe, J xx
Great mayo. Read my review re wastage.
Reading reviews re the waste. I have a very sharp knife which I use to cut across the plastic and with a teaspoon scrape whatever mayo is left inside. Use this method for toothpaste! A bit of initiative folks! 4/5 rate due to the inconvenience of cutting across plastic to retrieve the last of the mayo!
More accessible and eco-friendly container needed
I've used this for a long time. I use instead of margarine when making a sandwich. But I resent having to leave a good quantity in the bottle because I can't get it out. Even leaving it out of the fridge before use or mixing in some milk doesn't help. Please can we have it in a glass jar, like other supermarkets sell. This would also be more eco-friendly. Bad mark, Tesco.
What a shame.
Have the testers at Hellmans tried to squeeze the mayonnaise out of the bottle once it has been in the fridge.It is almost impossible,if they had this would never have been put in to production,it is really annoying.There is nothing wrong with the product just the crazy container.
Poor packaging, poor product
Hellmann's is usually so reliable but this product is just not good. It is very gluey and about as far removed from real mayo as you can get. To add to the problem the packaging is not well thought through. It is almost impossible to squeeze out the mayo and, as a result, a huge amount gets wasted. I'm definitely returning to a jar (reusable, easier to use) and the light mayo. The lighter than light is a step too far
I like this very light mayonnaise but not this bottle. I defy anyone to use this without wasting a quarter of the contents because you simply cannot get the product out of the bottle. I'll happily buy this in jar form but never again in the squeezy container.
