Dishwasher is an appliance that holds a special place in the kitchen. Instead of hand washing it is possible to leave it to him and save our time and energy. However, we can make using a dishwasher even more comfortable if we use it absolutely correctly and avoid the small mistakes that are often made while using this appliance. Therefore, now we will give you a little insight into what 10 items you should avoid putting in your Dishwasher:

  1. Wooden spoons, cups and cutting boards

Dishwasher detergents contain substances that actively affect wood items. It can remove natural oils used to dry wood items. Getting rid of the oil will cause the item to crack and spoil. That is why it is better not to put them in the washing machine. Instead, rinse them with warm water and do not leave them wet for long.

  1. Cast iron pottery

Cast iron pans are quite durable if we take proper care of them. To prevent the cast iron from oxidizing and the food from sticking, we often put oil on it. Dishwasher completely cleans it from this oil and makes the pan unusable.

Even if your cast iron dish is very dirty and you think a dishwasher is an easy way to clean it, do not use a dishwasher to clean it. 

  1. Aluminum pans and utensils 

If you ever put a disposable aluminum container in the dishwasher, you will see what happens - the aluminum will start to melt and change shape.

The same can be said for your aluminum cookware, pans and baking trays. If aluminum is not anodized, harsh detergents can cause it to corrode. Therefore, we must be as careful as possible with aluminum utensils!

  1. Printed or hand-painted pottery 

Commercial printing techniques on glassware have improved a lot lately, although placing them in a dishwasher is still not always a good idea. Powerful detergents and water jets can stain the dishes in a few washes and you will be left with spoiled utensils. 

  1. Thin plastic containers

Too high a temperature will cause the plastic to melt or rot. That’s why thin plastic containers are also a bad candidate for placing in a dishwasher.

However, if you still need to wash such dishes quickly and with the help of equipment, place them on the top shelf and do not use a high heat drying cycle. After washing, remove them from the dishwasher to dry them naturally.

  1. Kitchen knives

Putting knives in the dishwasher is a pretty big mistake. Detergents often stain the blade of the knife and deprive it of its original function. In addition, hot water and heat melt and change the shape of the knife handles.

But, Vestel’s newer dishwashers have a 3rd basket (also called: Easy Tray), which lets you wash knives as well. This third basket is an extra basket where you can place cutlery and small cups. This feature can be found in models like Vestel D 414 X.

  1. Vintage tableware and fine glass

Vintage, delicate dishes and hand-made glass are very sensitive to heat, so placing them in the dishwasher is not a good idea. However, strong detergents lose their shine.

However, some modern models (for example the D 414 mentioned above) have the steam wash feature. This feature makes the dirt softer, more tender and with the help of high temperature and steam washing it is not possible to wash more fragile dishes as well.

  1. Copper pans and mugs 

Copper pans and mugs are classic and beautiful, but require extra effort to make them shiny and bright. Do not complicate matters by placing them in the dishwasher. Harsh chemicals in dishwashing detergents have a negative effect on them and make them lose their shine.

  1. Nonstick pans

All pots and pans that do not have an adhesive coating should not be placed in the dishwasher. Hot water can cause the dishes to rot, while strong water can break the non-stick coating.

  1. Dishes with paper labels

Dishwashers can remove paper labels. These pieces of paper can be placed in the drain of a dishwasher or stick to other dishes. To prevent clutter, do not wash paper-labeled dishes in the dishwasher.

We hope, These tips will make your relationship with your dishwasher more comfortable.
