Enlightened folks use a cast-iron frying appliance, which, when properly used, requires no washing and indeed will be damaged by the application of soap or detergent.
Actually true. Cast iron shouldn't ever have soap applied. Wipe with some oil and re-use! It's almost all we use (that and surgical stainless steel, but that sticks pretty bad when a "non-stick" type pan is needed). Dishwashers are for forks and wine glasses. Right?
