“I'm submitting this recipe on request. I found this in the Chicago-Sun Times in an article about dishwasher cooking. I haven't tried this (my dishwasher is my husband and though he's hot, he's not hot enough to cook carrots). The author suggests using foil bags since you'll only have one seam to seal. He even states that you can cook this along with dirty dishes, using soap but I don't think I'd try that! I'm guessing at the cook time, since it would be how long your dishwasher takes to run a load :) I'm putting this in the 'dinner party' category because I think it would be a fun recipe to try when you have guests!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the carrots, butter and dill in a large bowl and toss with a spoon to combine.
  2. Transfer the carrots to a large foil bag (preferable) or a packet made by crimping and folding together the three sides of a large sheet of foil folded in half.
  3. To test the airtightness of it, gently press on the bag, if air escapes easily, reseal.
  4. Place the bag on the top rack of the dishwasher (which, since heat rises, presumably is warmer).
  5. Be careful that the rack doesn't puncture the bag.
  6. Set the dishwasher on its hottest setting and hit start.
  7. To serve, transfer the carrots back to the bowl and toss again.
