A few quick questions related to kitchen-wares.
1. Is there a specific type of plastic and temperature rating that is
associated with the claim "Dishwasher Safe" that I've seen on some
plastic products, but not others of the same type?
2. Is there a specific type of plastic that is rated as "Stain
Resistant" to food scraps and wastes that are normal byproducts of food
preparation and clean-up?
The best example I can think of is some types of cutting boards - I
think they are made of Polypropylene.
Thanks in advance, --Ed
These aren't tupperware questions. I am in the process of designing a
line of products that are commercially viable and offer the best for
the consumer. For all you know, (actually really don't know), these
products offer some benefit to the plumbing industry.
I would expect that there would be some reasonable intelligence when it
comes to answering a simple question. If you don't have the answers,
then why waste our time with useless and inappropriate responses?
If your response in an example of the level of professionalism we can
expect from this forum, then rest assured we won't waste your time
Mark, thanks for your earlier response.

For reasons I don't understand you have been bitten by a troll.
This group has many helpful contributors, so please give it a little more
I work with machines in the food industry and realise your questions are not
Have you spoken to any washing machine makers.. they might well be able to
point you to relevant standards. ( it's not in their interests to make a
machine that washes the pattern of plates that are supposed to be dishwasher
safe .... :-) ).

You might try this question on sci.materials
A couple of random ideas:
Commercial kitchen equipment often carries the "NSF"
seal of approval. Perhaps they have standards for plastics
used for food preparation?
You might check other standards organizations such
as ANSI and ASTM. They often have standards for things
that you wouldn't expect.
