After experiencing dismal performance from consumer-grade dishwasher detergents when phosphates were phased out in 2011, I tested out several varieties of phosphate-based detergents, ultimately selecting Cascade Professional Line as my detergent of choice. It seemed to work the best in my dishwasher, and even though I couldn’t buy this product with coupons, it was well worth spending my non-coupon dollars on because it worked.
Unfortunately, Cascade Professional was recently discontinued too. I went on a buying spree and purchased several cases to tide me over until I could find a replacement product that I liked just as much.
Recently, several readers have brought to my attention that Cascade Professional has reappeared under a new name: Cascade Fryer Boil Out. Now, the original Cascade Professional Line had instructions on the back for both dishwasher use and for cleaning deep fryers with it.
This new Cascade no longer has the dishwasher instructions on it. However, guess what it does have?
It’s brilliant, really. While the ban on phosphates extends to dishwasher detergents, the ban evidently doesn’t extend to fryer boil out products. How about that.
Another site that now carries Cascade Fryer Boil Out, Restockit, notes “Although Cascade with Phosphates detergent has been discontinued… “Boil-Out” Cascade is being purchased by customers like you. We encourage you to learn more about this product and its ingredients.”
Translation? Wink, wink… we know what this is. “Customers like you” also know what this is.
I’m elated that once my stockpile of “the good stuff” finally runs out, I’ll be able to purchase Cascade Fryer Boil-Out and continue to enjoy remarkably clean dishes.
