* 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.
Every single day my morning starts with me crawling out of bed and stumbling into the kitchen to grab a cup of coffee or hot tea. Before it has even finished brewing I’m pulling open the dishwasher to empty the load of dishes from the night before. It’s not the best way to start the day especially when I do finally pry my eyes open and find a dish or two with food particles still stuck on a plate or bowl. I’m not big on pre-washing dishes so I count on my dishwasher and dish soap to do that work for me. Sometimes they both fail.
While my regular dish detergent packs have done a fairly good job for me in the past I was very interested to see how the Cascade Platinum Pacs would work. So I filled my dishwasher up with one of the dirtiest loads of the week with dishes that had been sitting in the sink for most of the day and put them to work on a regular cycle.
So what makes these stand out for me? Cascade© Platinum Pacs feature an advanced triple action recipe that is specially designed to leave dishware virtually spot-free and help prevent the build-up of hard-water film on dishwasher walls. Each Pac is pre-measured with a powdered dish detergent and topped with the grease fighting power of Dawn. They fit right into my dishwasher’s detergent holder and are mess free. The coating dissolves during the cleaning cycle and sets the contents free to do their job.
I absolutely love how compact these are, making them very easy to store under the kitchen sink.
About an hour after the dishes finished drying I peeked inside to find 100% of my dishes clean and sparkling.
Even more surprising was the fact that my glass bowls didn’t have that cloudy film they occasionally get and came out streak-free.

Cascade partners with Gail Simmons
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 flat ware 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. Drizzle bright sauces on sparkling white plates or layer desserts in crystal-clean glassware. Keep you presentation sparkling with Cascade Platinum, which keeps dishes perfect for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests.”
