I've heard of cooking things inside of a coffee pot or on an engine block, but cooking food in a dishwasher kind of blew my mind. Yesterday Slate shared a video that explored the possibilities of dishwasher cooking. The verdict? Eggs were a disaster, seafood was sketchy, but the poached pears were apparently delightful.
Yes, it is possible to cook food in a dishwasher. I obviously don't recommend it, but it's certainly entertaining.
