Consumer Reports recently partnered with ABC 7 On Your Side to find the best dishwasher detergents and only one detergent, the Cascade Complete Action Pacs, was rated excellent for cleaning pots.
To test the detergents, they made a sticky batter by blending together 17 ingredients, including egg yolks, Cheese Whiz, peanut butter and rice.
They then spread the batter onto glass plates in measured amounts. The plates are baked in the microwave and left to sit for an hour before going into the dishwasher. Pots are brushed with macaroni and cheese, cooked on, and placed in the dishwasher next to the dirty plates.
The results showed that only Cascade Complete Action Pacs was excellent at cleaning pots.
As a side note, the Finish GelPacs did a great job on dishes, just not so great on pots.
