How Aldi Keep Their Prices Down

May 23rd, 2008 at 09:17pm

I just worked out how Aldi manage to keep their prices down. They get people off the street to write instructions on their products and then don’t pay them for it.

How else could they explain the instructions on a lasagne box saying to put the lasagne in a 1200 watt microwave for fifteen minutes. After 4 minutes and six seconds in an 1100 watt microwave it was overflowing; I can only imagine the melted plastic goop I would have been having to clean up if I had left it unattended for 15 minutes.

I’m not sure that the idea of putting the lasagne (in its plastic container) in a conventional oven for half an hour would have been much better.

Now, let’s hope that they actually paid the people that put the lasagne in the plastic container. If not, I will probably expire.

    Hi Sam,

    The same goes for their “Creamy Mushroom Tortellini” meal. Says something about cooking for 2 minutes in an 850 watt microwave, then stir, and cook for another 2 minutes.

    I did just that, and took it out and it was still frozen – cooked also in a 1200 watt microwave oven.

    Nuts…
