Make your dinner {dishes} Platinum

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.

With all three kids now home for Summer break, our load of dirty dishes has pretty much tripled! Sure, there are the typical meal-dishes and the never-ending-snack-dishes, but now we also have the let’s-make-brownies/popsicles/cookies/granola bars-dishes and the mom-I-used-all-your-bowls-to-make-a-sandcastle-dishes. Yes, lots and lots of dishes!

Regardless of what the dishes were used for, eventually I know how important it is to get them clean. And how important it is to keep the other dishes in the dishwasher clean, too! Because the last thing I want is to hand my little guy his “clean” sippy cup covered in “mystery spots” or left over food that wasn’t completely washed away. Gross!

That’s why I have been and always will be a Cascade girl! Their little Platinum Pacs pack a powerful punch with their triple action design all wrapped up in “single serving” packs. So easy to just drop in to the dishwasher and go!

What I really love about the Cascade Platinum Pacs is that they, somehow, manage to clean even the dishes that may have been sitting in the dishwasher overnight that did not get rinsed off before hitting the dishwasher. Now, I’m not going to point fingers {ahemTimahem} at who might put dishes in the dishwasher without rinsing them off first, but I do know it has happened a few times.


Of course my kids could care less what the dishes look like at meal time, as long it’s filled with food they like, but on the off chance that I might actually make something that is social media worthy, I would really hate for those dishes to be covered in random spots and such. Cascade has partnered with Gail Simmons, Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, to discuss why presentation is just as important as that yummy meal!

Seriously, don’t you love that classic white dish? My next set of dishes is going to be that classic bone white! {And my birthday just happens to be coming up in a few weeks…hint, hint.}

If you think you have the sparkliest dishes or maybe you can plate a meal like no other, then you need to check out Cascade’s “My Platinum” Instagram contest! Each week for four weeks there will be a photo theme. Just enter your best photo based on that weekly theme and you could win a brand new Whirlpool dishwasher or the amazing grand prize of a Platinum kitchen makeover! Just visit the Cascade “My Platinum” Contest for details or connect with Cascade on Facebook!!


Now, if I could just get one of those little Platinum Pacs that could get my kids that clean…

Do you like to “wow” your dinner guests with your amazing dinner presentation? What are your plating secrets?
