I have a set of hard-anodized aluminum pots and pans. They state that they are not dishwashwer safe, but my logic tells me that it has little to do with the dishwasher and much to do with the detergent. Trying to research this topic has been a nightmare, as very little is said other than "they aren't dishwasher safe." I have seen that Seventh Generation dish soaps are safe for aluminum, but am wondering whether the automatic dish soaps are safe for Hard-anodized aluminum pots in the long run. Will they deteriorate the anodization of the pots? If you could answer this question definitively, I would be extremely greatful as it has been quite a headache. I am really hoping that I will be able to use this dish detergent and not have to keep handwashing my pots and pans.
Thanks in advance!
