While the dishwasher is a fantastic invention and present in just about every home across the US, there’s certain guidelines that should be followed in order to protect your machine and to protect your stuff. Certain things in your kitchen should definitely keep to the sink to be washed. As a reminder, below is a list of things that should never be placed in the dishwasher and taken special care of. 


Wood 


Wood items should never be placed in the dishwasher. The detergent in the machine can scratch the wood, causing major damage to any of the pieces including spoons, bowls and other wooden utensils. The heat from the dryer in the dishwasher can also cause the wood to crack, which is a safety hazard to you and your family. 


Instead of throwing your wooden kitchen materials into the machine, mix equal parts of vinegar and warm water to wipe down the bowls, plates, cutting boards and utensils. Then rinse and dry off well.



Cast Iron


Cast iron should never go into the dishwasher. First, you spent so much time seasoning your pans and do not want to undo all the great flavor that has been created. You should never use soap on a cast iron pan. To properly clean one of these pans, simply use a little baking soda. Don’t forget to rinse, dry and season again with salt! 


Aluminum Cookware


You should use caution if you put aluminum cookware of any kind in the dishwasher. Technically, some of these pans are in fact “dishwasher safe,” however, the machine can wreak havoc on your pans. The machine can remove some of the shine of your pans and cause them to appear dull.         


Copper, Silver And Other Precious Metals


Many people have specialty silverware and serving pieces for special occasions. You may even have copper cookware. You can’t put any of these in the dishwasher, we’re sorry to say! After your next dinner party, you’ll have to spend some time at the sink washing your best utensils. The dishwasher can cause metals to dull. More seriously, it can hurt the finish of these pans and utensils, possibly causing contamination to your food while it’s cooking or being served. Silver especially will tarnish in the dishwasher, causing you the need for a more complicated cleaning process.            


Nonstick Cookware

You should think twice before you put nonstick cookware in your dishwasher. Some are dishwasher safe, and some are not. Even if these pans are denoted as dishwasher safe, you should be careful. Always check for damage to the pans if you place them in the dishwasher. Nonstick cookware can peel, getting particles in your food, which is unsafe.      


There are other items that you should think twice about before you put them into the dishwasher: 


  • Plastics
  • Kitchen knives
  • Fine China
  • Painted plates
  • Crystal
  • Other specialty items like vases


Enjoy your dishwasher for convenience, but remember to use it wisely!
