Pain points/ Frictions in user flow: 

  • Users often struggle with how the product will look in their home. They need size references.

  • "Item was unexpectedly too big for our home when it was delivered." - interviewee

  • Abandon cart when delivery process is unclear

  • When things are too slow to load

  • When there aren't detailed specs or zoomed in image

  • No reviews or engagement visible

Successful examples from competitor websites:

Some of the most popular online cookware retailers featured large, high resolution splash pages of their cookware in use or in aesthetically pleasing settings.

They all also had an option to "shop by category" on the front page in addition to the main navigation on top. The team appreciated the way Material kitchen did their main page product feature by saying "Meet The Forever Peeler."
