However, I think Designers Sang Min Yu and Wong Sang Lee are onto something here with their idea that they call “Save Paste“. It’s basically a disposable cardboard container in the shape of a wedge that is loaded from thin to thick.  You simply press the cardboard to remove all the paste (flattening much more easily that the current tube design).
