Cascade Platinum Pacs {Review} #MyPlatinum #sponsored

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.

I don't know about you, but I have to say... doing the dishes and emptying the dishwasher is one of my least favorite things to do! So when I go to empty the dishwasher and see spot and residue left on my dishes and glasses... I get mad. Yep, mad... because {1} I know that I have to either re-wash these items by hand or {2} re-run the dishwasher... and hope for the best! Believe me... I choose option #2 with sub-par results.

Over the past year or so, I thought that the left over residue and spots were the result of our aging dishwasher. Lo and behold, I was surprised to find out there was another VERY interesting and important reason I've been getting these unsightly spotty results!

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 pre-measured Pac contains a granule dish-detergent paired with the grease fighting power of Dawn. Convenient, easy to use and they fit perfectly into my dishwasher’s detergent holder. 

Cascade© Platinum Pacs achieves a clean so powerful it helps keep the dishwasher sparkling while delivering a variety of dish care benefits.
  • Delivers Cascade’s ultimate clean for dishes 
  • Scrubs away tough 24 hour stuck-on food 
  • Eliminates the need to pre-wash dishes
  • Provides exceptional dishware shine
  • Contains the Grease Fighting Power of Dawn
So will Cascade© Platinum Pacs achieve it's claimed results? Check out my test below.

Test Result

Go ahead, don't be shy.... take a look.... clean, shiny and spot free. Clearly.... A SUCCESS! Additionally, the odor from the interior dishwasher is NOW gone. Double bonus! Thank you (again) Cascade, you've done it AGAIN!

How Does the NEW Cascade Platinum Pac compare to other's in it's line?

Cascade’s Partnership 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 your presentation sparkling with Cascade Platinum, which keeps dishes perfect for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests.”
