Things that make me go eh?

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Bought new pots and pans today from John Lewis after spending months trying to pick ones I liked. I’d spent ages looking for pans that were oven proof. It didn’t say they were on the top but on Saturday I discovered that along with exactly the same information that was on the top of the packaging there was just one extra important technical information – Oven proof to Gas Mark 4!

Thats not what made me go eh? though. The pans just had the information on the top. The frying pans had a photograph to brighten them up. If you were looking for a picture to make a frying pan more attractive you might choose one of bacon or sausages or maybe a couple of golden fried eggs. Not whoever designed this packaging. No they design the packaging for frying pans and they think: sliced carrots.
