Why is "yes, the dish is clean" not right?

For me it's like you have an apple and you say "eat the fruit"!!! Not wrong but also maybe not correct (or perfect).

The first translation that comes to my mind for Teller is "plate".

But I suppose the slightly more generic "dish" is also possible -- so report it next time you get this question so that the alternative can be added.
