As Americans Grow Tired of Emptying the Dishwasher, Progresso Introduces the Perfect No-Mess Meal Option: Progresso Toppers&trad

MINNEAPOLIS , September 22 /Businesswire/ - Over the last six months, Americans are preparing more food at home than ever. This increase in at-home food preparation has led to an unwanted side effect: more dishwashing. According to a recent survey from Progresso Toppers™, two out of five parents are using their dishwasher more often and half (47%) claim they constantly have dirty dishes in the sink since the pandemic began. In addition, half of all Americans (50%) admit they prefer to make meals that don’t require cooking to avoid doing dishes afterwards.1
