I recently read that used, food grade 5 gallon buckets can be sterilized in a dishwasher that has a "heated dry" option. My question is, would the extreme heat cause damage to the rubber gasket in the rim of the lid?

I read the article in the latest edition of the Survialist magazine also ..... if you are re - using buckets they have to be super clean, dry and smell free ....... but doing a surgical scrub / sanitize and doing the whole dishwasher thing is a bit much ......

In regard to the bucket lid gasket ....... the dishwasher doesn't get that hot to effect the neoprene material ........
