MYTH #12: Nonstick-coated pans cannot be put in the dishwasher.

In the USA, if the nonstick is from a reputable manufacturer, nothing will happen if it is put in the dishwasher.

The coating resists most chemicals (or it would not work well with acidic and alkaline foods). But, watch out for wooden handles, which are easily damaged, and beware of anodized aluminum exteriors, which can mar and pit in the presence of dishwashing chemicals.

In Europe, check the manufacturer's use and care instructions, as European dishwasher detergents are much stronger.
