All accessories can be washed in the dishwasher but we recommend that you use a short programme (low temperature). Select the minimum temperature (< 40C) and avoid the drying cycle (generally >60C).
It is normal that the bowls and the lid will become marked, crazed and possibly opaque with frequent use.
This normal deterioration is not covered by guarantee. All plastic parts should be placed in the top rack of the dishwasher, away from the element.
Liquids and powders are less abrasive than tablets, and a detergent that is 'suitable for plastics' should be used.
Use of tablets, or detergents that are not 'suitable for plastics, can cause plastics to become brittle over time.
As for all plastics, the accessories are 'dishwasher-safe' (i.e. can be put in the dishwasher but will deteriorate over time and should only be placed on temperatures not exceeding 50 degrees), rather than 'dishwasher-proof' (i.e. can be put in the dishwasher without any deterioration)
