Cascade Complete® All-in-1 ActionPacs™ & Gift Card Giveaway

 keyvisual

I grew up with a manual dishwasher.  If you’re scratching your head, a manual dishwasher means we washed dishes by hand!  Maybe that’s why I’ve always been a firm believer in soaking dishes.  I love baking, but I really hate doing the dishes.  When MyBlogSpark gave me the opportunity to take the 24 Hour Cascade Challenge, I had to give it a try. P&G, through MyBlogSpark, sent me a Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPacs kit. 

The kit included:

  • A beautiful Corningware baking dish with glass lid for cooking & a plastic lid for storing or potlucks
  • 6 trial packs of Cascade Complete All-In-1 Action Pacs – one to use for my challenge and 5 for to share with you
  • Wal-Mart Gift Card ($15) for one of my lucky readers

That’s the easy part.  The hard part was the challenge.  I do not mean it was difficult to cook, but it was difficult to resist the temptation to soak the dish.  My instructions were:

  • Bake a Blueberry Cobbler
  • Set the empty baking dish out for 24 hours
  • Without rinsing, put it in the dishwasher with Cascade Complete

No rinsing!  No soaking!  No way!  But, I did it.  (By the way, the cobbler was delicious!).  The dish looked pretty sad the next day – all empty, dirty and abandoned.  I had blueberry stain nightmares.  I had my doubts, but the dish came out squeaky clean!  Will I rinse in the future?  Yes, it’s habit.  But, it’s nice to know I don’t always have to if I forget and leave a dish out overnight.

How about you?  Do you want to take the challenge too?

It’s easy, but you do have to leave a comment on this post.  Maybe you could tell me about your dirtiest dish and how hard you had to scrub for it to come clean.  If you’re a follower of this blog, you get an extra entry.

The prize?  I have five trial packs of Cascade Complete All-In-1 Action Pacs to give away and one lucky reader will receive a $15 Wal-Mart gift card. 
Hurry though as this giveaway will end May 25, 2011 at midnight

My thanks to P&G for providing me with the Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPac Kit, 6 trial packs, information, and the $15 Walmart gift card to giveaway through MyBlogSpark.

I can't tell you how many times I have placed an empty but dirty casserole dish in the oven because of lack of counter space and forgotten it - and then turned the oven on to preheat for another meal. Ugh. It's my worst kitchen habit! Hopefully someday I'll have a kitchen with LOTS of counter space :)

After eating the cobbler, I would have to take a nap. I think I could avoid soaking the dish. But I would love to try your cobbler in a new pan- knowing I could get the pan clean.

Baked on barbque chicken is the hardest dish I have ever tried to clean. I had to let it soak for 2 days.

Love your blog. Worst thing to clean is the brownie pan with the insert to make individual brownies. Even after soaking, it never gets completely clean in the dishwasher. Sheila
