    Hi friends
    I wanted to know whether palstic pots are safe to be washed in dishwashers?I put evrything including plastic and tupperware in it, except nonstick pans.But now my husband is telling me not to put plastic and tupperware in it.He says that as they are unsafe to use in microwave they should not be used in DW too.It may cause cancer!!!!!!!:-( .i know abt microwave but abt DW i am doubtful.All my pots are DW safe(according to the label).Still he is insists not to put them in DW.

    I also put plastic and tupperware in DW. No problems so far!! It is a good practice to stack them in the upper rack of the DW.

    Hi,
    Only dishwasher safe plastics should be put in d.w. Any plastic ( however good the quality may be )or tupperware should not be used in the m.wave; because harmful chemicals that could cause cancer are released into the food. at high temp. I suppose as we only WASH the plastics, in hot water, it is alright .

    Hi


    WE CAN PUT ANYTHING THAT IS DISHWASHER SAFE. mY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE IS IF I PUT SOME LIDS I FEEL SOME SOFTNESS SOON AFTER IT GETS WASHED. tHEN I WILL NOT PUT THOSE ONES, THINKING THAT IT IS REACTING TO THE HEAT .

    I put only those plastic containers which are dishwasher safe and always put them in the upper rack....check if your plastic containers have dishwasher safe symbol at the back....
