Cascade Platinum Pacs

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review, the opinions are my own.

I'm not sure about you, but I do a lot of dishes.  I always strive to make most of my food from scratch, and so that generally means dishes are being cleaned all day every day.  We didn't have a dishwasher until about 2 years ago, and man, it was ridiculous the amount of hand washing I was doing.  I thought for sure having a dishwasher would be the answer to my prayers.

Unfortunately, that didn't end up being the case.  We have gone through many different types of dishwasher detergent, trying to get the dishes clean.  Some of them work for a while and then stop working, others don't work at all.  Does anyone else have this problem?

I was really excited to have the opportunity to try Cascade Platinum Pacs.  And I have to say, they convinced me on the first load.  The dishes came out sparkling clean, and the dishwasher itself seemed clean and smelled clean.  I can't tell you how many loads of dishes I have washed that had egg stuck on pans or dishes still.  It kind of defeats the purpose of running the dishwasher if the dishes come out dirty!

I am so impressed with the Cascade Platinum Pacs, we are switching from our previous detergent!

Cascade is now partnering 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.”

You can find out more about Cascade's products on their Facebook page and also on their YouTube page.

They are also hosting The Cascade "My Platinum" Instagram contest, and you can find all of that information here.  You should enter!  The winner gets a kitchen makeover!  Who wouldn't want that!?


  1. Egg pans are the worst! If Cascade helps then it is a true miracle worker! Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. I have been very impressed with them too. They work so superiorly compared to some other dishwashing packets.

  3. I'm glad they are working well for you! They are actually kind of pretty too! Strange to say that about a dishwashing packet haha.
