4.0 out of 5 starsCheaper but, seems melted or wet before

The box arrived in good condition and individual packet has no issue but, it become Powderly once open the individual packet. And I prefer the thin layer of self dissolve plastic cover as do not need to peel off before place it into dishwasher. Overall not bad as a cheaper deal
1.0 out of 5 starsWouldn't buy again. Some crumbled, not uniform.

All the tablets are individually wrapped, which is a plus because most of them have been damaged and are in crumbs. The box itself seems a little worse for wear, and the tablets are not uniformly made. I wonder if these are original Finish products.
I grew up in an Asian American household where the dishwasher was practically a glorified drying rack. I was taught that this was the right way to respect our dishes. Now this product has come along that cleans very well especially with jet dry added in, and is extremely fast and convenient. It shames my ancestors, but, well, i worship the Gods of consumer culture now. Sorry, Grandma!
When we bought our Bosch dishwasher, there was a sample of these pellets included with it and a sticker on the inside that recommended Finish dishwashing tablets. Now...I know that this is just a marketing thing and that Finish probably paid Bosch a bunch of money to have that stuff put in there. However, I don't have any dishwasher detergent loyalty...so after I used up the samples and found that my dishes were coming out perfect every time. I stuck with it. I've been buying this same brand for years and it does a great job!
An added benefit that I didn't realize...because all the detergent is compacted into a little puck...and the puck falls down into the dishwasher when it's released from the holder, you NEVER get undissolved detergent stuck in the little holder the way some powders or liquids do from time to time.
does as good of a job as tabs that cost 2x or more then this one. My dishwasher doesn't like the 'gel' pack ones. It seems to build up mildew looking stuff inside if i don't use a powder (or compressed powder in this case). This tab and rinse aid produces the best results for me. I miss the old dishwashers over these new "energy efficient" dishwashers that run for 4 hours where the old one washed for an hour and gave you as good results if not better. Doesn't leave a real strong smell, leaves it smelling clean instead. I'm not bothered if some of them are crushed inside the packages, it all goes in the dishwasher, whether its a solid brick or a brick that's been crushed up, it does not affect the outcome of the load of dishes. Also dont like the 'self dissolving' no-need-to-unwrap packaging. This is so much better. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend.
I jumped on the Finish train after I used the Finish dishwasher liquid cleaner a couple of times and my family and I loved the results and the clean scent. Normally I used Cascade dishwasher pods and it's been that way for over a year or so. I'm now fully converted to Finish.
Cascade pods have a tendency to leak because of the gel on top. This can cause pods to stick together in the container. Finish dishwasher pacs are individually wrapped which was a nice surprise. If the Finish pacs break off or crumble then it is all contained in each individual wrapping. I'm not sure if that's great for the environment but it's certainly convenient for this customer.
I also found that Cascade didn't clean my dishes as well, hence the reason why I had to purchase the Finish dishwasher cleaner in the first place. I wasn't very familiar with the brand but once I used it I really liked it. Finish dishwasher pacs have the same great scent and in my opinion they give my dishes a deeper clean.
We have used the Finish Powerball detergent for a few years now and it does an excellent job cleaning our dishes and does not leave any waterspots. There are a few key benefits: - The individual pod wrapping is tight, but easy to open. This ensures the pod doesn't dissolve if exposed to water (like under a sink), like cheaper detergent has. - It seems to handle a full load better than cheaper detergents. - Much less messy than dealing with powder.
Finish was recommended by a friend and I am so happy that she did give the recommendation. This Finish product does a wonderful job with my countertop dishwasher. My things come out, literally, squeaky clean. I dont torture test my machine or the Finish. But there are some tough food stuffs left on things. It gets them right off.
Best example I can give: my metal fine mesh strainers. Used primarily for draining pasta. No matter how I would hand wash them before, sponge, dish brush, there was always that lack of shine. The strainers remained dull. Well, the strainers fir within my dishwasher, so I did. Put them in, put in the Finish pod and when everything was done, I was shocked. My strainers looked as if I had just brought them! They were shiny once again and totally clean.
I first went with these simply for the price and convenience of the large pack, but these really do a good job. I like that they are single packs with the little brick like thing that you place in the detergent slot on the machine. These do well cleaning and don't seem to leave a film ( I also do use JetDry) and do not leave any scent, which other detergents in the past that I have tried do and I really do not appreciate detergent scented dishes. I want them to smell like NOTHING, that to me means they are clean! These dissolve completely and also do not leave any remnants of detergent in the machine slot. Great for when the kids in the house are in charge of dishes as it also ensures they get the correct amount of detergent in each time.
It arrived very quickly with a few other items we ordered. e use these a couple times per week and they work great. We look at buying it here this way, The small 26 count box is $5.50-$6.99 in our local supermarkets, 3 boxes in that size would only give you 28 pods and cost you $16.50 + tax or more! So we got this 94 count box for a few dollars LESS than that, we didn't have to fight for a parking lot, nor deal with long lines, nor some dopey under-trained and annoying cashier who can't count to Potato- (please come visit ANY supermarket here in NYC and you will see exactly what we mean!) -so it makes perfect sense to buy it here! You get more for less $ and far less aggravated!
UPDATE: after a couple of weeks I needed to handwash before putting items in dw ~ quite a feat for this elderly widow with arthritic hands ~ and sometimes when dw done & I opened door full pod was on bottom of dw ~ SO DISAPPOINTED IN QUALITY CONTROL AT FINISH GUESS INSTEAD OF DISPOSING BAD PODS THEY SELL TO NOW FORMER CUSTOMERS ~ can only conclude under new ownership/management 🤬!
