Maliciously Literal Genie: Oh, don't be silly. Of COURSE the expensive anodized aluminum pots and pans can go into the dishwasher!
Me: Oh, great!
--- Hours later, I remove the pots, when, suddenly
Maliciously Literal Genie: Of course, it will ruin the finish, and they'll be ugly forever now.
Me: I hate you, Maliciously Literal Genie.
*sigh* Apparently, they will still cook fine, but they now have an ugly chalkboard finish. This is apparently irreversible and also voids the lifetime warranty.
On the other hand, I have a pretty delicious smelling soup simmering on the stove...
Let's make soup!!
EDIT: and I deglazed the pan with a good chardonnay, and added that to the pot.
