Why on earth would you want to do this?  I've never seen anything easier to
wash by hand than a nonstick bread machine pan.

Would you buy any other top-of-the-line equipment -- a car, or computer, or
camera, or appliance -- and then purposely try to ruin it by doing the
opposite of what the owner's manual tells you to do?

Please don't abuse your Zoji -- you are fortunate to have one and you
should try to take good care of it, even if it means you have to spend
three minutes washing and rinsing the pan by hand.
