While attending "The Art of Plating" workshop at Berlin Food Week, I sat next to Su from Fraeuleinchenand we discussed if cooking in a dishwasher was a Fad or Not. So why not give it a try?
Actually, cooking in a dishwasher makes sense as long as you have a hermetic container. You can use Weck Jars, Mason Jars or as I did, Baby Food Jars. The dishwasher heats the water to a certain temperature and it stays at the same during the whole cycle... That means it is great for poaching!
2 Minute Steaks
4 Cocktail tomatos
1 tblsp Oil
Dry Chives & chili flakes
2 empty Baby Jars with lids
a working dishwasher
Insert in each jar one minute steak, the shallots, zucchini and tomatoes diced add the chives and chili flakes and oil and fill up with beef stock. Close the lids (be very sure they are closed)
Place the jars on your dishwasher and press the highest heat option you have.
Once the cycle is done, let it cool down before take the jars out, and remember, they are HOT!
Open the jar and dice the meat. Add the rest in a mixer, blender or food processor to make the soup.
And voila! Soup made in a dishwasher. I will try soon to make bigger steaks in a lower temperature cycle, but for now on, I will make my "quick lunch" soups and creams when I am loading the dishwasher!
My verdict: Dishwasher Cooking isn't a Fad and I will keep trying to use it the days I have no much time or maybe while having many friends over.
