Dishwasher-safe items guide

Do you have a dishwasher that melts your plastic dishes and warps your wood? That's not what anyone wants. Let's look at what items can't be washed in the dishwasher.

The following items should never be put in a dishwasher:

Plastic dishes that don't have dishwasher safe labels. A dishwasher's high temperatures can cause these materials to warp or melt.

Cutting boards and utensils made of wood. Whenever wood gets too wet, it will warp and become damaged, so any wooded item shouldn't be put in the dishwasher.

Wooden-handled cutlery. In the same way that wooden utensils and cutting boards follow the same rules, so does cutlery with wood handles.

Dishes trimmed with gold. As a soft metal, gold can easily be damaged in a dishwasher, and it is also fragile and valuable, making it ineligible for dishwasher use.

Dishes made from china or other delicate materials. Occasionally, dishwashers can damage delicate dishes by being too harsh.

A sharp knife. In the dishwasher, sharp knives can become dull if they are banged around. In order to keep them sharp, it's best to hand wash them.

Cookware with nonstick coating. Nonstick cookware cannot be washed in the dishwasher because dishwashers damage the nonstick coating, making it less effective.

A cast iron object. Putting cast iron in the dishwasher can remove the seasoning that protects it from rusting.

If you follow this guide, your items and your dishwasher are going to probably last a lot longer. For more information review our website and contact Appliance Repair Dania Beach for any dishwasher or appliance repair inquiries.
