I know, in a *perfect* world, I would be able to have a gluten-free kitchen for my 19 y/old son (& me). But I'm married & our daughter and her s/o also live with us...so we have the oxymoron of a mixed kitchen.
My Celiac isn't so bad. My son....he gets sick looking at their loaf of bread (or at least it SEEMS that way!)
I've separated everything I can think of. Their toaster & ours. Their pots/pans & ours. Their dishes & ours. Their cooking utensils & ours. Their eating utensils (for glutened food, it's plastic ware that gets thrown out) and ours.
I've wondered for a long time (& asked wherever/whenever I can) does it matter if something glutened gets into the dishwasher with the gluten-free stuff? What if the dishwasher does a load of glutened stuff & then gluten-free stuff?
Handwashing we do in separate basins at separate times & THAT is when all glutened stuff gets washed right now.
So, the dishwasher....does it matter?
