Ina Garten is one of the undisputed culinary queens, so for some, it came as a shock to see what kitchen tools she puts inside her dishwasher.
Aside from everyday dinnerware such as plates and bowls, Garten had knives, an All-Clad roasting pan, measuring cups, wooden and rubber spatulas and more all clean and ready to be unloaded from the appliance.
Which sent some of her followers into a whirl this weekend, posting comments such as, "I cannot believe what I'm seeing, knives and all in there. I thought it was a big no-no."
Garten clarified in her response, "I do it many times a day and some are 40 years old."
The All-Clad stainless steel collection is dishwasher safe, but some pans -- like those of the cast-iron variety -- should always be washed by hand.
Even if her fans contested her cleaning tactics, there was one part of the chore even the Barefoot Contessa agrees on -- not wanting to put away the clean dishes.
