You know what they say, stainless steel should never go in the dishwasher. Guess what? They’re wrong. Stainless steel pots and pans can go into the dishwasher. So cook your heart out using stainless steel pans then follow these steps and let your dishwasher do the work.
1. Remove Excess Food.
Using a wooden spatula, scrape off as much stuck-on food from your dishes as you can muster. There’s no need to pre-rinse or pre-wash with a premium ActionPac.
2. Check For Labels.
Look for a stamp or label on the handle or on the underside of the pot or pan indicating if it is dishwasher safe. For example, stainless steel is dishwasher safe, aluminum is not. If you have trouble locating a label and are unsure what material the pan is made of, check the original packaging or on the manufacture’s website.
3. Load The Dishwasher.
Refer to your owner’s manual. Some dishwasher manuals specify to load pots and pans on their sides on the bottom rack. For most dishwashers, insert them mess side down on the bottom rack. This lets the spray jets work their magic.
4. Use Cascade Platinum.
For best results, use a premium ActionPac. With dry hands, carefully place a premium ActionPac into your dishwasher’s dry detergent dispenser.
5. Set Your Dishwasher.
Some dishwasher models will have a designated pots and pans cycle. For all other dishwashers select the longest cycle. Give that baked-on a little extra oomph!
The pan of steel is now stainless, again. Now, let’s try to keep it this way.
