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.
Cascade Platinum Pacs boast a triple action recipe that is designed to leave dishes spot free, and help prevent build-up of hard water film on the dishwasher walls. It even powers away food that has been stuck-on for more 24 hours. Moms, you know how great that is. Because no matter how many times we repeat ” Rinse the dishes, rinse the dishes, rinse the dishes” they NEVER rinse the dishes. It eliminates the need to rinse the dishes all together, cha ching! No rinsing AND spot free dishes? Yup, must have been designed just for moms.
As a mom I find that presentation is so important in getting kids to try new (and healthy) recipes. But as a blogger I find that presentation is just as important in getting people to want to try my favorite recipes for themselves too! It’s not just a mom thing, or a blogger thing though. Take a scroll through an instagram feed, or check out the hashtag #foodie and it’s quickly apparent that people truly do eat with their eyes. Appetizing photos of food are everywhere these days! Gail Simmons, Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, has partnered with Cascade to show why presentation is as important as preparation. Because it’s about more than just a great-tasting recipe, presentation is essential and clean, spot-free dishes help food pop.
Gail recommends impressing with a Platinum Presentation: “The easiest recipes pop with unexpected, gourmet presentations. Drizzle bright sauces on sparkling white plates or layer desserts in crystal-clean glassware. Keep your presentation sparkling with Cascade Platinum, which keeps dishes perfect for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests.”
