E. LecClerc: Cutting Prices and Products

In North America, we have Target to slash prices. In France, E.LecClerc literally takes a knife to their products.

I have to check the owner’s manual, but it doesn’t look like the microwave should be floating OR balanced on a blade. Ah, here’s the manual for the microwave.

Micro-ondes? What the hell is that?

Thanks Bruno for the find. The original can be found in catalogue Leclerc.

    My French is terrible. Maybe the knife is for sale and E.LecClerc is showing off it’s cutting capabilities.

    “Ondes” is French for “waves.” So “Micro-waves.”

    I want this microwave though…

    Why have a boring one that sits on the kitchen table when you can have one that floats in the air.

    Leave it to the French to invent a microwave for people who can’t fit one over the stove, but don’t want one taking up counter space – a microwave that floats in the air. Of course, there are drawbacks – like the microwave getting in the way of your tomato slicing – or knocking a hot pot of soup off the stove – or banging your grandpa on the head while he naps in the other room – or drifting out the open door with your hot pocket still inside. The French have never been known as great inventors – must be all the wine.

    Remember the old knife commercials (ginzu?) where they would cut through a tin can and then prove the knife was still sharp by slicing a tomato? This ad goes one better — This knife slices a tomato so easily that even your microwave can do it!

    Microwave of the future! I love it. Food comes out lighter than air.
