Introduction: Diswasher Thawing Machine.
I am not a fan of cooking in the dishwasher, but there are other possibilities to consider. This is one of those almost too good to be true. My brother named it: "Chicken ala Westinghouse". Usually it takes at least a day to thaw chicken. I propose that you can do it in a fraction of the time. (TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!) I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ISSUES WHAT SO EVER). Good idea to see your health care professional and consult with them before doing this.
Update: Someone mentioned to me that this might be similar to sous vide. The book "Cooking for Geeks" by Jeff Riley talks about this method of cooking.
Mythbusters took a stab at it: http://www.belch.com/blog/2012/11/19/alton-brown-and-mythbusters-cook-lasagna-in-the-dishwasher/

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What's Needed:
Hard frozen chicken. I used two breasts fro this example.
A container to protect the foil from being sliced by the hot water
Step 2: Get It Ready.
Cover and seal the chicken well with the foil. (You do not want detergent or the water in your food.
Insert that package into a container that will fit comfortable on the top shelf.
I would recommend doing this first with just water (i.e. no detergent)) so you know what to expect. A trial run so to speak.
Turn on the dish washer to the longest cycle and make sure it is set on heat dry.
Let the dishwasher do it's thing.
Note the ballast for the overhead light in the kitchen went out and the electrician has not come by yet,
Step 3: Done.
Your results may vary, but my boneless chicken not only thawed but was 110 degrees F in the center of the meat and just needed a minute or two to finish cooking. Actually it should be cooked to 160 to 170 degree F depending on who you talk to. I will never leave chicken in the fridge for a day for thawing again.
Step 4: Let's Try Fish.
Had some fillets in the freezer. Let us try fish. It does not require as much heat as does chicken, so it should cook all the way through.
Put the fish in a freezer bag and wrapped that with foil for protection. Dishwasher is done.
Fish was thawed, but not cooked. used a frying pan to finishing the cooking that took no more than a couple of minutes.
Step 5: Some Other Instructables to Look At.
