Cleaner Dishes, Less Hassle With Cascade Platinum

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.


Cascade Platinum
This last week, we’ve been using Cascade Platinum on our dishes. After a week of using the product once to twice a day, I’ve got a pretty good feel for it’s performance. There are definitely days when our dishes sit all day and have food crusted on them at the end of the day. Usually when this happens, I run my dishes through an extra cycle to help scrub off all of the old food. This week, I decided to experiment and just ran those dishes through a normal cycle using the Cascade Platinum. The results were surprisingly good and I realized that I didn’t need that extra cycle while using it. This is saving me time, water and electricity which is a nice perk. I’m sure the results are due to the increased enzyme used in the packs which in turn help break down food while in the dish washer.

Platinum Food Presentation
Cleaner dishes means better food presentation. I’m no food expert, but I do enjoy baking and cooking as well as food photography. It’s important that my dishes look their best so that it looks appealing to the eye.  My snack of fresh fruit which I had tonight wouldn’t look near as yummy if that white plate it’s on had crusted food or hard water stains.


Cascade Platinum Sparkling Dishes


Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, Gail Simmons has partnered with Cascade to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation. In reference to preparation, Gail says:

The easiest recipes pop with unexpected, gourmet presentations. Drizzle bright sauces on sparkling white plates or layer desserts in crystal-clean glassware. Keep your presentation sparkling with Cascade Platinum,which keeps dishes perfect for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests.

    We just got our first dishwasher earlier this summer and we’ve been using these. I guess I don’t have much experience comparing different detergents but it sure has worked well and made life easier!

    I’m so glad to hear that it does so well on caked on food. Sometimes I mean to wash right away or soak items but often forget. It’d be great if I didn’t have to re-wash so many things after a full cycle!
