We have been having major issues with our dishwasher leaving residue and spots on the dishes so I knew anything would be better than what we currently are using. The first thing we did before starting the Cascade Platinum is test out if the dishwasher was “clean” so we ran a cleaner, and then also used the regular dishwasher detergent. I still noticed the same spots all over the dishes.  Then we used the Cascade Platinum Pacs. and finally no more spotted dishes!

I had been washing the dishes twice because of the sports and thinking the dishes weren’t clean enough. Now we are saving a ton of water by switching to the Platinum Pacs.

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.

From prep to plating:
It’s more than just a great-­‐tasting recipe, but also perfect presentation. Sparkling dishes, shining flat ware and spot-­‐free glasses truly let you put your best food forward with culinary creations thatpop!

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 impromptu guests.”
