“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.”
Now, more than ever, people eat with their eyes, and the evidence is all over sites like Facebook and Instagram. With that in mind, Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, Gail Simmons, has partnered with Cascade to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation.
• From prep to plating:
It’s more than just a great-tasting recipe, but also perfect presentation. Sparkling dishes, shining flatware and spot-free glasses truly let you put your best food forward with culinary creations that pop!
• Gail recommends impressing with a Platinum Presentation:
“The easiest recipes pop with unexpected, gourmet presentations.

• Scrubs away tough 24 hour stuck-on food
• Eliminates the need to pre-wash dishes
• Provides exceptional dishware shine

I recently received a bag of Cascade Platinum Pacs to put to the test.
So, put them to the test I did! From everyday cooking, to backed on mac & cheese, to my homemade lasagna, that uses almost every pan in the house, I cooked, mixed, and baked it up all week, and counted on Cascade Platinum to help work on the clean up.
Unlike the dishwasher detergent we’ve been using, Cascade Platinum hasn’t let me down yet! These little pacs left no food on our pans, or water marks on our glasses. Both of which have been a real problem. A recurring problem as we’ve tried switching to several brands of detergent. Our stainless steel pans haven’t had this much shine in years. Also impressive, is our ceramic casserole dish, it hasn’t had this kind of sparkle since it was new.
Often before entertaining company I’ve had to check the glasses for water marks. On a daily bases, I’ve been pre-washing dishes, and scrubbing pans before and after they go through the dishwasher. I love that Cascade Platinum tackles these jobs so well. Leaving me with time I’d much prefer to spend with my family.
After five days of using Cascade Platinum Pacs, the inside of our dishwasher has never looked so clean or smelled better. I had no idea that switching detergents could make such a difference within the machine.
Looking in to it, that would be due to the Cascade Platinum Technology!
Cascade Platinum features a premium, advanced triple-action formula specially designed to deliver Cascade’s best-in-market performance:
• Increased enzyme power delivers better tough food cleaning than Cascade Complete Pacs
• Unique liquid-top dual surfactant system delivers exceptional shine for the dishes AND helps keep your dishwasher sparkling
• Specially designed chelant and polymer system helps prevent hard-water film build-up on your dishes, glasses and even the interior walls of your dishwasher
• The chelant is designed to fight Calcium that comes in with hard-water and food to help deliver virtually film-free dishes wash after wash
Yes, these little pacs are powerful when it comes to clean! BUT, how about the cost? Before looking it up, I expected the cost to blow out my budget. Which means if I were right, I’d be back to standing in the kitchen each night after dinner, instead of relaxing with my family.
Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised. The suggested retail price for Cascade Platinum is only $0.29 per dose! Not bad. Definitely not budget blowing.
So, to that – I’ll be enjoying more meals like lasagna, knowing I now have a powerful little helper when it comes to the clean up.
