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.
Mother Knows Best
Growing up, Mom would always buy Cascade for our dishwasher. Truth be told, I never paid attention as to why.
Foolishly, as a young bride on a tight budget I would always try to find a substitute. Thinking a couple bucks here and there were better spent elsewhere, but my dishes would come out half clean and all filmy- blech!
I would complain to mom and she would always say “Did you use Cascade?” Somehow moms always seem to know, don’t they?
It didn’t take me long to realize that Mother knows best and in the dish washing realm, you seriously get what you pay for… or you do them by hand.
Now, let’s be honest, mama will tell ya, housekeeping has never been my strong suit and by hand means not done at all around my house.
And nothing is worse than post-dishwasher stuck on food…
I mean dude, I did my part, but you totally didn’t do yours, what gives?
Nobody’s got time to do the dishes twice… especially if it is the aftermath of baked on baked bean sauce sent through the washer and dried to stick on even tighter.
So, I quickly became brand loyal to Cascade.
Food Blogger’s Friend
And over the years, I have fallen completely for Cascade Complete. I have two containers of it under my sink as I type this.
But between regularly food blogging and the hard water in our area, I have found myself adding an extra (very expensive) pre-rinse to my loads to get them to come out even more sparkling.
So when Cascade released their new Cascade Platinum and asked if I would like to give it a try, I was totally game.
Platinum claimed to not only make my dishes shine but also make my machine clean… which leads me to the age old question of WHY I have to clean a device that is supposed to clean? But, perhaps with Cascade Platinum I will not.
So, I loaded up my machine with Cascade Platinum and with a little hesitation, for the first time in forever, I left the pre-wash space empty.
Would Cris’ dishes get clean?
Would she be scrubbing them for days to come because she dropped her usual routine?
Would they sparkle?
Will Cris stop talking about herself in the third person already?
The results were fantastic. Consider me sold. Everything comes out sparkling clean without adding anything else to the wash!
My next Cascade purchase will definitely be Platinum.
And I am not the only one. Top Chef’s Gail Simmons is partnering up with Cascade to share her love for a “Platinum Presentation”. Check out her Panna Cotta recipe below:
