A dishwasher with a "fruit and vegetable washing" program.

In this program, a small amount of cold water will be used, and no detergents. Then the produce will be gently dried with warm air only, to avoid cooking it.

Only a tiny amount of detergent remains in the machine from previous dish loads, and it is non toxic (designed for dishes). Therefore there is no danger of poisoning.

In fact this might be actually possible today with dishwashers that have a quick "cold rinse" program.

To wash small fruit such as grapes, olives, or cherries, put them in a closed basket (like the one you get for cutlery).

       Simple, useful, easily baked. Not very ecofriendly, but you can't have everything.   

       Welcome, [aronbrand]. Have an authentic halfbakery croissant.

       It is pretty eco-friendly, in most machines the quick program uses only four liters of water (1 gallon), and you can wash a hell of a lot fruit and vegetables. No heating means minimal power use, and you can even program it to operate at night to save on energy bills. No detergents means no harmful waste.

       Hm. I wonder if you could use the dishwasher to steam vegetables...?
