Project description

It’s imperative we change our way of consuming in order to live more sustainably: that applies to which products we buy and how we use them. Buying a cheap appliance, for example, currently still seems like the best option to many consumers since it lets them avoid the financial risk of an investment piece and/or rare, even riskier sharing services.

The lending service “Mise en Place” offers Denn’s Biomarkt customers a convenient, affordable alternative: a curated selection of high-quality kitchen appliances from Manufactum that customers can easily rent from a vending machine located in the Denn’s anytime. Anyone who loves indulging in cooking but, as is increasingly often the case, doesn’t regularly, can either rent a usually expensive, rarely used appliance such as an ice cream machine for a couple of Euros spontaneously, reserve it in advance via the App, or check its availability and, if necessary, be shown to the location of the nearest available one. That way, customers can pick up a fondue pot along with cheese the day of their family get-together or get appliances and ingredients for a weekday supply of homemade hummus, fresh pasta, or dried fruit during their weekly shopping trip. The app and interface manage and simplify the rental process and inspire customers with recipes befitting the seasonally changing appliances. The customer has access to special cooking experiences and consumes more sustainably.
