The festive period is the perfect time to gather your loved ones around the dinner table for great food and even better company.
But if you’re the hostess, you can often spend the occasion hot and stressed in the kitchen, then feeling utterly exhausted when you’re faced with a stack of washing up.
These tips will help take the stress out of hosting, so you can enjoy the special occasion as much as everyone else.
Make a recipe that you can cook in one pot – such as a stew, pie or lasagne. This makes cooking a lot easier as you’re not worried about timing everything to be ready at the same time. Plus it’s a lovely way to serve up a meal: removing the lid to release all the beautiful smells on a cold day and letting everyone tuck in.
It also means you’ll have a lot less washing up! And if you’re worried about tackling tough baked-on food, there’s no need. Simply use Fairy Platinum Dishwasher Tablets in an AEG Dishwasher – these make the perfect partners for tackling tough food stains, offering a superior clean with no need to scrub dishes before loading.
Clean up as you go along
After cooking a big meal, the last thing you want to see is a seemingly endless pile of washing up by the sink. Instead, as you finish with each utensil or piece of cookware, either rinse it if you need to use it again, rather than dirtying another clean one, or load it straight into your AEG Dishwasher.
This will leave you feeling much more organised and your kitchen clutter-free, plus it will free up time for you to spend catching up with your family and friends.
You can save yourself even more precious minutes by skipping the pre-wash too. Sixty per cent of people think you need to rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, but it’s a myth! Fairy Platinum’s unique formula means there’s no need to pre-rinse your dishes – just stick them in the dishwasher and voila! Your job is finished.
Get it right first time
When it comes to loading the dishwasher, make sure you only have to do it once. AEG’s Comfort Lift Dishwasher is the first dishwasher in the world that lets you gently slide and lift the lower basket upwards, so you can load with ease, ensuring everything gets an optimum wash.
You can also have a specially designed glass basket, that enables you to wash up to eight of even your most precious wine glasses safely.
Plus, if you use Fairy Platinum, you will only need one wash to achieve the best results. With a highly dissolvable capsule, it will quickly start cleaning once you press ‘start’, resulting in a superior, sparkling clean first time, so you can relax and put your feet up.
