Dishwasher Settings – Create the perfect wash each and every time

Posted on February 12, 2015 at 9:38 am

It is a common occurrence with many dishwashers that sometimes they don’t wash effectively or well enough to be able to put the dishes away in the cupboard without food stains / moulded on food.

The dishwasher is a mechanical device for cleaning dishes and eating utensils. Dishwashers can be found in restaurants and private homes. Unlike manual dishwashing, which relies largely on physical scrubbing to remove soiling, the mechanical dishwasher cleans by spraying hot water, typically between 55 and 75 °C at the dishes, with lower temperatures used for delicate items.

However to get the perfect wash each time, you should consult with the dish washing manufacturer to ensure that you have made sure that you have configured and filled up the dishwasher with the essential salts, cleaning fluid and/or using a dishwasher tablet that effectively works with you type and method of washing the machine uses to clean dishes.

Making Jelly – The Quick and Effective Method

Posted on February 3, 2015 at 9:32 am

Making jelly and eating jelly is enjoyed by thousands of children and adults across the country. The product comes in a variety of flavours, colours, consistencies and more and can really provide some fun and enjoyment to food preparation.

Generally it is enjoyed for pudding and a sweet treat and in the 1950’s many people used to use the traditional method of leaving the jelly outside to set, instead of the fridge.

Nowadays, you can purchase jelly with sugar free versions or the typical ones that you used to see appear in concentrated cubes which required boiling water to be able to dissolve. Now if you use the fridge you can quickly, effortlessly and accurately create the perfect jelly with the perfect consistency that you’d see in 5 star restaurants. Coupled with the ability to stack jelly types one on top of another, you can also create some rather fancy patterns.
