Finish Quantum Ultimate Tablets
Purchased this product September 2020. Worst Finish product I have ever used. My stainless steel knives come out with rust spots on them and they have been rinsed prior to going in dishwasher. The spongy little packs in sticky plastic with white yellow and red globs in them are horrid to use. I have gone back to the original finish powerball tablets and knives are coming out clean again. Very false advertising by Finish for the Quantum Ultimate I wont be using it again and if they remove the power ball tablets then I guess I will be changing to another product. I have had dishwashers for over 40 years and never had rust on knife blades.
White powder is solid and does not dissolve
Rather disappointed with this product having ordered tree packets. The product contains three different constituents. White powder and a yellow and red liquid. The white powder/crystals were totally solid in the plastic sachet and did not dissolve very much in the very hot water of the dishwasher leaving a granular trail of half the contents when the cycle was complete. Tried massaging the white powder loose,before use, to no avail.
We have now returned the product to Costco and are now using our old Finish powerball which has served us so well for many years.
Did we have a faulty batch ?
Won’t be buying finish products again
Had been using finish for at least 10 years, then got these which are pretty average to say the least. Wrote to finish about the faulty tablets which do not clean the tea stains from my cups as they did previously and have had no reply. Now having to get to the end of 80 tablets which don’t work is pretty disappointing. Have a bag of fairy to go next and won’t be trusting finish again
The new pouches leave specks on dishes
I have been happy with Finish for over 20 years but their new pouches leave dirt spots on the dishes.
I gave my neighbour the pouches and she gets the same dirt spots on dishes.
I cannot find anything else - only Finish pouches in my slightly remote IGA supermarket.
Where have the Finish tablets gone? - bring them back please.
Some dishes come out dirtier than they went in - Finish pouches are not fit for purpose.
For now I have switched to Fairy tablets that give me a NO DIRT SPOTS result.
Purchased in August 2020 for A$24.00.
Tablets do not dissolve
The tablets do not dissolve at all in my dishwasher. I have a Fisher and paykel dish drawer. Instructions on pack say to use empty section if cutlery drawer. But tablets still don't dissolve and dishes are still dirty. Won't be using this product again.
Dishes and coffee mugs faded
This Quantum Finish dishwashing product has faded our Corelle dishes and some of our coffee mugs very badly! Our Corelle dishes are a special set costing $285. I have complained to Finish and they will not reimburse us. Only will send a coupon for more Finish products!! Do I want more Finish products?? NO!
- Verified purchase
Very bad performance - advertise no need to rinse does not work.
Very poor product, does not work as advertise TV adds say don't rinse does not work, glasses not clean will not remove grim and black specks all over the dishes. Fairy the product i used to use so much better.
Purchased in May 2020 for A$58.00.
Finish quantum ultimate pro...
I recently bought a 48 pack , I have not used any other dishwasher products in over 5 years.
Faults: I kept getting particles in mugs, glasses etc
The tabs were either not breaking down throughout wash, leaving substance (not dissolving) and maddeningly were sticking together in ‘clumps’ as I removed from the packet.
When I tried to pull one from ‘clump’ it split open in my hand. I call having that on my hand extremely unnerving and dangerous!! Imagine if one of my children had this happen to them and they are not aware of the r...
Don’t waste your money.
These are the worst dishwasher tablets I have ever used, I still rinse dishes first from habit & every time we empty dishwasher there are at least 3/4 dirty dishes & they don’t clean coffee mugs after rinsing. Don’t waste your money.
The worst dishwasher tablets on the market
I purchased these because they were on special from Coles. They are not worth buying. My plates and bowls remained dirty even after prerinsing. I’ve gone back to Fairy Platinum. Don’t waste your money folks!
Gross distortion of truth in T.V advertisements
This company advertise on T.V that we waste water when we rinse dishes before placing them in the dish washer. The ad shown a woman placing dirty pots, casserole dishes, and plates directly into the dishwasher and behold, they come out sparkling clean. How dishonest. We are now on our 4th dishwasher and our current model is the most expensive model from Germany. I can assure everyone that dishwashers only clean pre cleaned dishes. They never clean dirty dishes.
Place a baking dish or casserole dish with baked on food, or even a pot that has had pumpkin soup and it will not come out sparking clean on any cycle.
Feeling very frustrated
I had seen with interest the ads for Finish Powerball Quantum Ultimate Pro. No rinsing necessary, sign up to the no rinsing pledge, they'll donate money, etc. Well, I was happy with the two types I was using (alternating Finish powder, with Fairy Platinum+ tabs or basic Finish Powerball tabs each day), but these were on special and I was curious to try. Well, they are worse than any I've ever tried! Ironic, because they are supposedly Finish's premium product, yet they don't clean as well as either Finish Powder, or basic Finish Powerball tabl...ets. I was so shocked, and quite p'd off. Heaps of food left on, the cutlery is particularly bad, but certainly the majority of items were not properly cleaned! I've had to either rinse/soak them then rewash.(NOT using that product!)Tried twice - same result. Very disappointed.
Finish Powerball rubbish
I have the Finish Powerball Quantum Ultimate Pro in the 48 bag. We are just a couple with a visiting adult child. The dishwasher does get used once a day at night. It is not overloaded. We are not silly, you have to scrub some food scraps off the plates but we don't have a lot of food like cheesey dishes that stick. I am talking about spoons with bran still attached from the morning smoothy.. These Finish Powerball just will not remove the stuff of our dishes. We have put them into the holder of the dishwaster upside down, back to front, left to right, right to left.. they just DO NOT WORK. go to another brand these are rubbish.
I think it’s a scam
Finish if your Dishwasher tabs are so good then why do you sell Dishwasher cleaner, If your tabs are so good I shouldn’t have to clean my dishwasher, I think it’s just a scam and you are blinding people with science also there is no powerball, it’s not even a ball so there’s another scam right there
Purchased in February 2020 for A$8.00.
Absolute waste of money..
I saw this product advertised on tele and thought i would give it a go wanting to do my bit and save water.. Well what an absolute waste of money, water and time !!! I had to wash dishes and cutlery again :( gave it a 2nd go, same result, food was left on plates and casserole dish (even though casserole dish had been sprayed with oil before i cooked in it)
Don't waste your money
The tablet does not dissolve properly and leaves a greasy residue in its wake. Couldn't figure out what was happening, seems to dissolve more with extremely hot water but still leaves an unsettling amount of residue.
Fawlty, Finish and Fairy
In the Hotel Inspectors episode of Fawlty Towers a guest tells Basil he is 'generally a very patient man' and that is how I have dealt with Quantum tablets, but like him I've lost my patience.
The instructions quite clearly state 'Place one tab per wash in the DRY dispenser' and we do.
In many cases, the tablet 'sticks' in the dispenser, due it appears to the gelatinous covering in which it arrives, and on arriving home you find the dishwashing cycle has been a waste of water and you need to restart the machine during after work drinks, which t...
Questions & Answers
I have noticed that the finish powerball tablets in the pack of 34 i have now are splitting on the powder side of tablets. Am half way through bag and have half empty tablets at the bottom. I have noticed it has happened before. I always get them but a bit dissapointed on whats happening.
How do the "Finish Quantum" tablets from The Reject Shop compare to the ones you find in the supermarkets?
