Just what should you put in the dishwasher?

I had a very insightful conversation this afternoon about what items are suitable to be washed in a dishwasher. Apparently, not everything.

Fortunately, the select but highly representative group was very civilised, and did not descend into brawls, protesting and tactical changes in seating arrangements du to disagreements about this, the most sensitive of topics. I was quite proud. We mostly agreed on acceptable dishwasherable items, so I have taken the liberty of summarising our agreements below.

Now before any of you cry “fix” on me, let me tell you the jury was a very balanced party incorporating a represenative number of women, Asians and homosexuals. How very modern. And we all agreed. Who knew? We represented the pinnacle of democracy, and all in a lunch hour on a Monday.

So, I know you’re all dying to know just what we put in our dishwashers:

Pans (but not non-stick ones)

Plates (but if we’ve only had toast on them then we hand-wash)

Glasses, except wine glasses. And we don’t put them in sideways

All manner of baking dishes

Cutlery. Sharp knives to be laid down on the top shelf


Not hamsters.



Enjoy folks.
