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.
Last week I blogged about how I was selected as an Ambassador for Cascade Platinum, and this past week I received the product in the mail to try. One thing Cascade Platinum does that other dishwashing products do not is prevent the build-up of hard-water film on dishwasher walls, thanks to a specially designed chelant and polymer system. It also is strong enough to wash away food that has been stuck on for over 24 hours.
I filled up my dishwasher with icky dishes (not difficult, since I cook all of our meals), some of which were covered in barbecue sauce that had been sitting for over 24 hours. I didn't pre-rinse anything. I even included a bowl Pierce and I had used in a craft, that was covered in dried glue.
When I opened up my dishwasher, the dishes looked spotless, and the dishwasher interior was very clean. I pulled out the little bowl that had been used in a craft, and all the dried glue was gone. My glasses were sparkling with no streaks, thanks to Cascade Platinum's triple-action formula. I was so pleased!

Stay tuned next week - I'll be testing one of Gail Simmons' recipes on my blog! Gail Simmons, Top Chef judge and editor of Food + Wine magazine, is working with Cascade to discuss why food presentation is just as important as preparation.
Readers, do you have any special tricks you like to use in food presentation?
