Ok, its not like this is the coolest thing ever, but here it is. I was reading my Consumer Reports mag, and learned something new about certain dishwasher detergents. Some have Enyzmes that help break down the food so you don't need any prewashing at all. I even did a test and the stuff removed burned cheese off of a dish without the Hi-Temp wash, no problem.
So I am now hooked on 2in1 ActionPacs from Cascade.
You can laugh at me, its ok.
