The hot sauce's name, 10^32K is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Kelvin temperature of "Absolute Hot," the highest theorized temperature in contrast with "absolute zero."

But it's not all for show and weight: the material helps preserve the heat and taste of the sauce by preventing oxidization.

With all that said, GE only produced one thousand bottles of 10^32K, which all sold out. However, you can try your luck in a sweepstakes to win a bottle. Should you win, you'll be able to say the following with conviction (and probably a numbed tongue):
