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've been buying this product from you for a little bit now and always had good success unfortunately it seems the last two times I purchased this item I've received a poorly made quality product this could be due to just a couple bad batches not sure but upset that my dishes are turning out filthy it becomes costly when you're having to rewash your dishes two to three times just to get them clean from the residue that's left on them from the soap. Thought I'D share this with you. I'm usually pretty satisfied with the product I receive but like I said this last couple times has been a hassle and costly in water and soap to rewash.
Got a new dishwasher a few months ago. We’ve only used Cascade dishwashing detergent. I bought this stuff because I thought I could save a few bucks. This stuff sucks. It leaves my dishes dirty and covered in spots and food debris. I don’t like that each pod is individually wrapped either, it’s not very “green”. When I moved out of my mom’s house after graduating from college 10 years ago, she said “My one piece of advice about living on your own is to never skimp on good dish detergent. Go with Dawn if you’re hand washing, and Cascade when using a dishwasher.” I laughed at her, but took the advice. Now that I bought Finish, I find myself hand washing all of the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. What a waste of time and money. I sent one bowl thru the dishwasher 3 times, it still had food debris inside. I used the Cascade and the bowl came out spotless.
Previously I bought the Powerball Max In 1 and it did good for us. Now we purchased the Powerball All In 1 and it’s seems no different than the Max In 1. We bought two to get that discount per.
The main difference would be the packaging. One came in an nice container and this one came in a box. The All In 1 are wrapped in foil that you have to remove while the other is just put it in and forget it.
So it comes down to convenience. Do you want to unwrap it for this price point?
Overall, the All In 1 does a good job cleaning our dishes but I would not buy it again because of the wrapper.
I bought this thinking, it's been 135 years since the invention of the dishwasher; surely all dish detergents are pretty similar right? And Finish, being owned by a major global CPG company, has to be just as good as anyone else. So when I saw they had a 94 pack for 20% cheaper per unit than the competition, I thought I would make the frugal choice, with bonus points for not having to buy more dish detergent for several months.
Unfortunately, this stuff just sucks. Using one Finish pod in a standard size dishwasher, about 1/3 of the dishes would look like I just sprayed some water on them for a minute. In my dishwasher, one pod of Cascade or even Amazon Brand could do the job. I'm now using 2-3 Finish pods for each load, depending on how full it is, and I still get one rogue dish per load that I have to hand wash. In addition, as a minor annoyance, the Finish pods are all individually wrapped, so I have to take them out of their wrapper and send the wrapper to the landfill.
Don't think you're saving a few cents with these -- they will end up costing you more money per load, and you'll spend more time hand-washing your dishes afterwards than it took me to write this review.
I read good reviews and thought I'd try this. Thought it might be better than Cascade.
I didn't find it to be any better or worse then Cascade, so no positive comments.
Though it comes in a recyclable box, each pod is individually wrapped in a mylar type material. Not recyclable. In addition, at least a dozen of these packets were open and crumbled making them unusable. Also causing the crumbled powder to leak out of the box making a constant mess on my counter and in my cabinet. At least with Cascade, the entire soap packet dissolves and you can reuse or recycle the plastic container. Still looking for a good alternative.
We purchased this product because it was recommended for our new dishwasher. We have been using it for about a year and it has started to ruin our brand new wedding plates. When I spoke with the manufacturer of the plates, they said they are dishwasher safe but only with detergent that are citrus free. It does not mention anywhere on the box what the ingredients are in this dishwashing tabs. I had to be on hold for 20 minutes with customer service before someone finally could give me an answer. Yes there is citrus in this product so if you have any gold painted or specialty plateware you will want to skip this product.
I bought these because we bought our first dishwasher and the manual recommended this specific dishwasher pod product. I should have bought a smaller box to try them first. There are two major issues I have with these. 1. Each pod is individually wrapped in foil. I find this to be extremely wasteful. 2. These leave white residue on dishes after every cycle. So, you have to wipe some of your 'clean' dishes with a wet towel after. If I could stand wasting , I'd throw these out. Instead, I have them as a backup for when I run out of the others I've bought.
I don't recommend these, at all. Unless you like white chemical residue on your clean dishes. 🤷♀️
I guess it's my fault for misinterpreting the photo that says "individually wrapped." I assumed that meant with the dissolvable wrapper, but instead it's silver plastic wrap that has to be removed. The box was also covered in powder, so I expected to find all the tablets loose inside, but it was only a few of them. It still made a mess though. I have another brand I prefer (dissolvable tab style) but they've been out of stock with the quarantine. Luckily I saved the plastic tub so I could use that instead of the messy, powdery box. These will do as a substitute, but I won't be buying them again.
I've tried a few different brands of pods. These are absolutely horrible. First, a small annoyance is each one is individually wrapped so that takes longer to get each one out unlike other brands. Second, they crumble once you take them out of the packaging so you quickly have to get as much as you can into the dispenser. And lastly, there's still so much food stuck to the dishes. I will use these up and go buy Cascade or any other brand next time.
I have used cascade pods for years. I used Finish before that back before pods were available. Decided to save money and buy Finish instead if cascade. Big mistake: 1 - leave film on dished 2 - dishes have a gritty feel when touched 3 - dull look to dishes 4 - messy package. Must take cake out of individual package, sometimes crumbled. I got the largest package and was so bad, I actually threw away rather than confine use. So much for saving money.
