MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Nov 21, 2012) - Throughout the years there have been many unusual cooking trends from brewing bacon-flavored beer to molecular gastronomy. However, according to a recent article from Glamour, another food preparation practice may be making its way into the mainstream -- cooking food in the dishwasher. Although some proponents of the method say the cooking method is sanitary, eco-friendly and a great way to prepare salmon or veggies, others think that it may not prove the most convenient solution. Roto-Rooter Minneapolis responds to this trend and notes that it is probably best for the diners and the dishwasher appliance to keep food out of the device.
For those who are new to the concept, Glamour helps explains the process of cooking poached salmon, "All it takes is aluminum foil, a piece of fish, a few drizzles of olive oil, some herbs, and... your dishwasher. After you put the fish, oil, and herbs in foil -- which you fold very tightly at the edges in order to protect the fish from the dishwasher (or your dishwasher from the fish, really) -- you toss the package in the dishwasher and let it cook for a cycle." While some believe it is a green activity, because you can use soap to wash dishes at the same time, Skinny Chef notes that the process is best conducted without soap.
Roto-Rooter Minneapolis responds with skepticism in its press statement, "Although modern dishwashers are capable of holding up to a lot of wear and tear these days, it is important to keep them as clean as possible -- putting fresh meals inside of them to cook goes against this suggestion. Likewise, drain lines and dishwashers can become clogged by excess food if faced with large pieces of food, therefore it is best not to prepare food in the dishwasher."
Although Roto-Rooter Minneapolis encourages chefs to prepare their meals the old-fashioned way, it does applaud individuals for trying an eco-friendly attempt. In its press statement, Roto-Rooter Minneapolis concludes, "There are many other things people can do to make their living more eco-friendly as an alternative to cooking in the dishwasher. For instance, they can make sure their home is free of leaks to prevent excess water use. Other homeowners may benefit from replacing their conventional water heater with a tankless device that will help them save money and reduce energy use."
