My dishwasher as a Sterilizer?
    #4268081 - 06/07/05 03:46 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I have a GE Triton like super awesome dishwasher. I did some research and found out that the button named "Sani-wash" on my dishwasher heats 10 gallons of water over the dishes/whatever for 90 minutes at 120degrees. Is this sufficient for sterilization?is it just the same as boiling?

That's probably 120 degrees F, which is nowhere near bioling (212F).  A pressure cooking goes beyond boiling (~220F).

Conclusion-not sufficient :thumbdown:
Sorry :frown:

Agreed. Dishwashers make excellent 'sanitizers' as the label sani-wash on your machine indicates. However, there is a world of difference between sanitizing and sterilizing.

actualy i dont think it goes beyond boiling, since water boils at a lower temp under pressure...

namaste,

Actually, water boils at a higher temp under pressure. I'm also certain the 120 figure is on the fahrenheit scale as opposed to the celsius. That would be 49C.

It might be perfect to wash contaminated material if you use some bleach with it.
