Hand Washing V. Dishwasher

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am newly diagnosed and trying to make my (shared) kitchen more gluten free friendly. I don't have a dishwasher. Do I have to buy new pots, pans, utensils, plates, etc. if they have come into contact with gluten before? Or is scrubbing really hard good enough? Any help is appreciated!

Washing most things with soap and rinsing well is usually enough to get rid of the gluten.Scratched and coated frying pans should probably be replaced as should damaged plastic utensils or collanders that could hide gluten. If you have an old cutting boards that could hide gluten in cracks, you might want to buy your own. You will probably need your own toaster. 

 

When I went gluten-free, I bought a new cutting board, sifter, and tossed my silicon muffin liners/cups.  I got rid of an ld cracked wooden spoon and another plastic one that was slightly melted.  As for my other stuff, I scrubbed the cast iron pot down and reseasoned it, and cleaned out my toaster oven very very well.

 

You will probably need your own toaster. You will also need your own condiments (mayo, butter, jam, peanut butter, etc.) which could end up with crumbs in it.

 

Best wishes!

Some people also color code things, so if you are going to go get a few new plastic items and can find a color like red or green that will mark them easily as the gluten-free ones (Can also just use a sharpie), a lot of people on here have found that to be helpful.
