Can you cook food in the dishwasher?
There's one appliance that often gets overlooked, however, when it comes to food preparation -- your dishwasher. Yes, that machine that's generally used only to clean can actually be used to cook too. It sounds crazy, but it's true. Most dishwashers provide plenty of heat to fully cook a wide array of foods.
Put the dishwasher on. Place the dishwasher onto a rinse-only cycle using cold water with no soap or detergent. It's important to use cold water because hot water causes the potatoes to steam slightly, causing them to be soggy once they've been washed and get boiled or baked.
- Clean potatoes before storing them. You need only brush off the soil on potatoes grown in coarse, sandy soil. But if the soil is fine, sticky clay, your potatoes may need washing. If so, be sure they are completely dry before placing them in storage.
- The potato skin not only adds fiber and nutrients, but it also helps the flesh of the potato retain its nutrients. If you leave off the butter, cheese, bacon and sour cream when you eat potato skins, they can add nutrients to your diet.
- A Facebook post says to fill a sink with water, add 1 cup of vinegar and stir. Then, soak the fruit for 10 minutes and it will sparkle with no wax or white, dirty film. The post claims this will also make produce last longer. Last year, we asked Julie Albrecht, PhD, RD, about the best way to wash fruits and vegetables.
Bob Blumer, host of Food Network's The Surreal Gourmet, has been doing it for years, claiming to have cooked salmon in dishwashers around the world. All you have to do is wrap the salmon tightly in foil, stick the packet in the top rack, and run it on a regular cycle.
- Combine herbs, garlic, shallots, salt, and pepper with olive oil. Rub into turkey breast and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Place in Tupperware and sit on top shelf of dishwasher. Run dishwasher for 3 full cycles for a total time of about 3 hours and 25 minutes.
- Good nutrition is necessary for healing. During the healing process, the body needs increased amounts of calories, protein, vitamins A and C, and sometimes the mineral zinc. The following guidelines will help you choose “power” foods to promote healing.
- A more severe ankle sprain may cause much more pain and make it tough or impossible to walk. If you have a sprain, your doctor may mention its “grade”: Grade I is stretching of the ligament or a very mild tear, with little or no instability at the joint. Grade III is a completely torn or ruptured ligament.

- According to the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project , a series of medical databases sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, outpatient arthroscopic surgery typically costs $8,970. At the Kapiolani Medical Center in Aiea, HI, the average charges for arthroscopic meniscus repair are $7,450.
- Overview of a meniscus tear. The meniscus is a piece of cartilage that provides a cushion between your femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone). There are two menisci in each knee joint. They can be damaged or torn during activities that put pressure on or rotate the knee joint.
- A meniscal tear can lead to knee osteoarthritis (OA), but knee OA can also lead to a spontaneous meniscal tear through breakdown and weakening of meniscal structure. A degenerative meniscal lesion in the middle-aged or older patient could suggest early stage knee OA and should be treated accordingly.
