At a past show, I had a guest ask me why can't they put the ice cream scoop in the dishwasher. I was stumped. I know it's in the U&C, and has something to do with the chemicals inside it, but I also know people who have put their's in the DW, still works fine, just isn't a pretty. It's the same group of people at my show tonight...so I thought I'd ask my knowledgable cheffer friends...why exactly can't you put the ice cream scoop in the DW? This way, I'm covered if it comes up again.
