I love spending time in my kitchen cooking and baking new recipes. It’s fun to experiment. However, one thing I despise is the cleanup. I tend to make a huge mess every time I’m cooking. I try to clean as I go along but it never works. In the end, it’s an embarrassing mess and one that makes me tired just looking at. I always dread the cleanup.

Does the mess ever stop me from making certain recipes? The answer to that is a yes. When I’m tired and have lots to do, I don’t want to make anything elaborate because I know how much time I’ll be spending on cleanup.

I will say though that cleanup time has shortened quite a bit since we purchased a dishwasher last year. It’s so much easier tucking the dirty dishes away and letting the dishwasher do all the hard work. One of the brands of dishwasher detergent I use is Cascade Platinum. In fact, the inside of my dishwasher even mentions using the Cascade brand! I find it works really well on getting off stuck on food and makes my dishes clean and sparkly. I get really annoyed when dishes come out dirty after running a load in the dishwasher. Thankfully that rarely happens when I use Cascade Platinum.

Cascade Platinum Pacs uses a premium, advanced triple action formula to clean dishes. It even scrubs away food that’s been left sitting on the dishes for 24 hours. There’s no need to pre-wash dishes (which I never do anyways!) and it also has the grease-fighting power of Dawn. When all is said and done, dishes are clean, residue free and dry.

It comes in Fresh and Lemon Burst Scents.

I also recently learned that Cascade Platinum has partnered with Food Network Canada’s Michael Smith. He is the host of the show, Chef’s Michael’s Kitchen. I thought it would be fun to try a recipe from his book, Back to Basics and use my Cascade Platinum Pacs for cleanup. I made Pan-Roasted Zucchini and Cherry Tomatoes. It was bursting with flavour and so good! It’s also very healthy too!

In terms of the mess, I made out ok. It took me less than five minutes to have the kitchen cleaned and all the dishes loaded in the dishwasher. Cascade Platinum worked its magic and my dishes came out sparkly clean!
