Cascade My Platinum Review & Instagram Contest


“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.”

Last week I told y’all about my participating in Cascade’s ‘My Platinum’ Ambassador Program.  I was excited to receive my product samples this week so I could see for myself if my dishes would get extra sparkly and clean.  I’ve always shied away from putting my dishes in the dishwasher without pre-washing, since anytime I had tried before they always came out dirty.  It’s one thing to wash freshly dirtied dishes, a whole ‘nother ball game to try to wash dried on day old food. Yuck!  But, I had agreed to try and was hoping it would work as it would be a huge time saver if I were able to skip pre-washing.

So, I cooked my kids one of their favorite dinner’s that just so happens to be the messiest; Crock-pot Spaghetti (without a crock-pot liner). My crock-pot was beyond coated with food.  In fact, after soaking it OVERNIGHT in water it still looked like this! (see image below)


Holy Smokes!  This just so happens to be the messiest cooked on spaghetti I’ve ever seen.  I was NOT looking forward to washing scrapping all of this baked on spaghetti goodness.  Then, I remembered my new Cascade Platinum samples.  I decided right then and there if my crock-pot ended up sparkling clean without me having to lift a finger I was sold.  So into the dishwasher it went!

Looking at these two images side by side, the after picture definitely looks cleaner!!  Is it possible that Cascade Platinum really cleaned my extremely dirty crock-pot? I’ll have to admit, I was a little nervous to look.  What do you think?

Sparkly Clean!!

I’m shocked y’all!  Never in a million years did I expect it to come completely clean.  When they say Cascade© Platinum Pacs feature an advanced triple action recipe that is specially designed to leave dishware virtually spot-free and help prevent the build-up of hard-water film on dishwasher walls they weren’t playing games!  Seriously, if it works this good on my extremely dirty baked on crock-pot then our everyday dirty dishes should be a breeze.  I’m looking forward to seeing how much time I can save now that I know I can eliminate pre-washing!! Woot!

Now, for the fun stuff!

Cascade recently partnered with Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, Gail Simmons, to discuss why food presentation is just as important as preparation. Additionally Cascade launched “My Platinum” Instagram contest! Cascade wants you to show off your dishes, silverware and glassware for a chance to win great prizes by entering the “My Platinum” Instagram contest (details below and my first entry!).
