Picture of Gourmet Dishwasher Fish and Rice Dinner
If you dont know how to cook or looking for other ways to play with your food cooking with the dishwasher is your answer! Adding soap will mess up your recipe thats the only way to ruin your meal. You really cant over cook and undercooking just means running the dishwasher longer while you enjoy watching TV! SIMPLE!. My meal of choice was Perch and Rice with lemons, seasoning and chicken broth. Thanks for checking out my instructable I really appreciate the support.

cover well and put on top rack

Reminder- dont add soap- I warned you

Step 5:

I put the dishwasher setting on no delay so it would run hot water right away for 90 minutes. I took it out with 43 minutes left and my wish was perfectly cooked.

Step 6: Taste Test

Yummy its all done, its watery but thats okay we will fix that in the next step, test it make sure it tastes okay...

Step 7: Drain the rice...

Drain the liquid, dont worry there is tonsss of flavor in the rice and fish you dont need the liquid. The rice tastes better than the fish I think!

Step 8: Presentation is Everything

Serve your family a big healthy savory dish and then say you made it in the dishwasher, cant get any cleaner than that! Then clean up your mess where you started at.

Running a dishwasher for 45 minutes is a VERY expensive way to cook dinner. This would work just as well in a pan with the lid on. Don't get me wrong, the food sounds nice, but the amount of energy a dishwasher uses - which you are paying for every time you get your bills - compared to a microwave or pan on the hob (which are designed to localise energy usage into a small volume, like a meal) is crazy.

It's a cool idea but it seems like it would be a terrible waste of water. Definitely a temporary solution though, I suppose, if your oven/stove goes out and you don't have a microwave/convection oven.

Thank you, Id like to experiment with pasta and other stuff and I have a fear of getting ecoli again so I was confident with fish haha.

Fantastic! I've never tried this, but often thought of it. I've only heard of it done in foil before, and without the rice. Nice one!
