Total Rookie - Super Basic Food safety Questions

CulinaryLearner | May 4, 2014 04:03 PM


Hope everyone is well!

Please bear with me as I am a lone student who doesn't have anyone yet to teach me how to cook.

First question,

I am starting with Chicken and ground beef.

In order to make sure everything remains clean and sanitary, here are my questions:

1) I don't have a cutting board, can I just put the beef on glass plates, and make burgers, and afterwards wash the plate in the dishwasher? (In other words, I read how you have to use at least vinegar and hydrogen peroxide for cutting boards, so does the dishwasher do the trick?)

2) Same question as above, but I will broil the burgers on a pan with a rack in it. So after using the pan/rack, do I just put it in the dishwasher as well, or are there any other extra cleaning steps?

3) Same clean/safety question, after weighing any meat in a stainless steel bowl weight, I can just put the bowl in my dishwasher?

After all of your help, I'll ask a few more questions about the cooking / recipe!
