Cooked in a dishwasher

Cooked in a dishwasher

June 1970: Charlotte H. Pownell, consumer relations director for an appliance company, shows off another use of a dishwasher – cooking dinner. A whole salmon and vegetables, seasoned and wrapped in triple-thickness foil, was cooked in the dishwasher.

This photo by former staff photographer Judd Gunderson was published in the June 18, 1970, Los Angeles Times.
