Dishwasher Cooking: Rinse and Poach


I went to bed last night and woke up this morning in some amazing alternate universe where you can cook dinner in your dishwasher without being shut down by the Health Inspector.  Apparently Oprah recently got on this bandwagon, too, so you just know that we’re about to see her on the cover of her magazine pulling a 5-course meal out of her Maytag.

The real bonus here?  You can actually DO your dishes while cooking them.  Just put the food into airtight canning jars and turn on the rinse cycle – the soapy water won’t touch the food while it cleans your dirty dishes and poaches your pears.  I have a hunch that Al Gore is going to claim credit for this one – that’s how big this could be.

Too bad you have to be a gazillionaire in NYC to have an apartment with a dishwasher.  Now tell me the truth, aren’t you just a littttttle bit curious if it works?
