According to kitchen expert Katie Mortram, this tip applies more to professional chef’s knives, not typical tableware.

But if you decide to pop them in the dishwasher, let the combined heat and humidity ruin them.

said Mortram Tom’s guide: “It can lead to rust, corrosion and even warping, so stick to hand washing instead.”

WOODEN CUTTING BOARD

One of the few items that you might clean improperly is a wooden cutting board.

This is also a no-go for the dishwasher. The high temperature and humidity will disfigure the piece of wood, which can cause it to break

NON-STICK PANS

As for the non-stick pan, throwing it in the dishwasher might not be the best idea as the detergent and hot drying cycle can ruin it.

Even though it claims to be dishwasher safe, hand washing might be the best you can do.

PLASTIC CONTAINER

This is another kitchen item that appears to be dishwasher safe, but if it’s too thin, the heat can warp it.

Mortram shared, “I’ve seen this to the point where the lid doesn’t fit anymore.”

Here are some tips that may help you the next time you clean your home:

ALL ISOLATED

This includes any accompanying travel mugs or water bottles.

The high temperature of the detergent can damage the insulated surface and leave excess water between the walls.

COPPER PANS

If you are planning to invest in copper pans, make sure you clean them properly from the start.

They can rust easily due to the harsh cycle when using the dishwasher. For this reason, it is best to hand wash with dish soap.

Rub

When it comes to graters, there are too many holes that the kitchen utensil will not necessarily clean it optimally.

Also, the blades can ruin the plastic on the dish racks, causing tarnishing. Therefore, hand washing is another focal point for the best results.

Although the kitchen utensil isn’t the best for these particular items, one household expert shared this Proper way to load a dishwasher.
