Not all kitchen hacks are created equal.
A recent tip doing the rounds is recommending the dishwasher as a quicker way to clean potatoes.
"A quick rinse in your dishwasher lets you focus on prepping the rest of the meal, cutting your cooking time down dramatically," the publication says.
But not everyone agrees. Although this method sounds faster, it would only save you time if you’re cooking potatoes for a large group of people.
Writing an article for, The Kitchn, Elizabeth Licata, explains that in many instances, a rinse cycle, taking between ten and 15 minutes, would take longer than washing potatoes by hand.
"Washing potatoes in the dishwasher could be useful if for some reason you needed to cook and wash a ton of potatoes all at once, like if you were making mashed potatoes for 100 people," Elizabeth said.
"But when cooking for fewer than 10 people, using this potato-washing 'hack' seems considerably less efficient than just washing the potatoes yourself."
She added: "This has got to be one of the weirder kitchen ‘hacks’ I've ever seen. Why would a person wash their potatoes in the dishwasher?"
