Putting pots and pans in the dishwasher- why not?

jameshig | Oct 18, 201009:04 AM     74

I don't understand why people get so up in arms about putting pots and pans in the dishwasher. I wouldn't put anything coated in a non-stick coating in the dishwasher, as it could possibly wear the coating down a little quicker. Or anything wooden, as there is the possibility it could warp, but why are people so freaked out about putting their knives and pots/pans in the dishwasher?

Please help me understand, am I missing something?
