You Can Do Laundry, Wash Dishes and Cook Dinner in Your Dishwasher

Brad Weiser swears that you can use your dishwasher to cook and do laundry. I thought he was crazy until I real this. According to yahoo.com your dishwasher is one of the best allies in keeping your kitchen safe from contaminants? The dishwasher sanitizes everything that goes in it, says Bonnie Richmond, senior lecturer in food safety and sanitation at the Hotel School at Cornell University, if you use the dry cycle. During that cycle, the internal temperature of the dishwasher reaches 170°F, which is required for sanitizing.

Bonnie also says that you can run anything through the dishwasher that can go into it, including plate ware, glassware, flatware, plastic cutting boards, and sponges. Anything that touches raw meat and fish, or their juices or blood, should be placed in the dishwasher immediately. That means if you use a sponge to wipe up the counter where meat juices have spilled, you should toss it right in the dishwasher and get out a clean one. At the very least, your sponges should go into the dishwasher every time you run it. Be sure to keep a backup supply on hand so you are not tempted to use a dirty one.

If you want to cook with your dishwasher, I found a great recipe from the Food Network for Salmon in the dishwasher. Who knew, you could clean your dishes, sponges and cook dinner in your dishwasher?
