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.
So, my dishwasher is really old! It’s, ohh…I’d say 25-30 years old! We live in my parent’s old farmhouse – the home where I grew up at and when they moved, they left their original old dishwasher here. Now, I’m not going to say anything bad about my dishwasher because it gets the job done but I will say that I usually have to pre-clean or at least rinse my dishes really well before I load them into the washer. Otherwise, I’ll have some stuck on food.
Yes, I probably should just buy a new dishwasher but I’m a sentimental soul! I remember helping mom load this very dishwasher when I was young. Plus, it still works…so I won’t retire it just yet. 😉
I usually have about a load full to wash every other day so my dishwasher gets it’s workout! The detergent I normally use does a decent job but it tends to sometimes leave streaks or that yucky white powdery film. I was sent a package of the Cascade Platinum Pacs to try. These Cascade Platinum Pacs have a triple action formula that is designed to leave your dishes virtually spot free plus keeps hard water build up off your dishwasher walls.
I’ve used these Cascade Platinum Pacs a few times over the past week or so and I made sure to NOT pre-rinse my dishes before loading them into the washer. I really wanted to see how tough this detergent was. I was very happy to see that it did a more than fantastic job at getting my dishes clean and shiny! EVEN without pre-rinsing! Hands down…better than my other brand!
Cascade Platinum Action Pacs:
- Powers away tough, 24 hour stuck on food
- Eliminates the need to pre-wash dishes
- Helps maintain the look of new machines and helps prevent additional hard water film build up
- Delivers exceptional dishware shine
Cascade’s Partnership with Gail Simmons
It’s so true that people eat with their eyes! Evidence of that is all over Facebook and Instagram. The Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine Magazine, Gail Simmons, is partnering with Cascade to show how presentation is just as important as food preparation! I enjoy taking photos of my dessert and dinner recipes that I share on my blog! Having pretty dishes and dishes that sparkle really do make a huge difference!!!
From prep to plating: It’s more than just a great tasting recipe, but also perfect presentation. Sparkling dishes, shining flatware and spot free glasses truly let you put your best food forward with culinary creations that pop!
Gail recommends impressing with a Platinum presentation: “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 impromtu guests.”
