Our usual brand of dishwasher tablet was not available so we went with a big brand (and expensive) - Finish. Since using these tablets every washing load has dirty dishes and cutlery. For something that costs so much it really is a poor performing product. We won’t be buying Finish ever again. Very disappointed.
Purchased in May 2021.
Pros and 'cons' of finsh liquid
Liquid dish wash if most definitely preferable to powder, much better for glassware and cutlery.
However, manufacturer has 'cleverly' changed the shape of the container, now giving customers less content, and costing more!
Time to change to another brand, only problem is, as far as I know, no-one else does liquid soap for dishwashers?
Does a good job.
The original and the best!
After trying every tablet Finish have made and being total disappointed by their lack of performance and damage to my glassware, I returned to plain old classic powder. It knocked my socks off! I am not sure why I persevered with the tablets for so long.
It washes well and it is by far the most cost effective option. I never have to do a second wash, something I had been doing constantly with the tablets.
If you have been using tablets and find you keep having to re wash because the dishes are dirty or the tablet hasn't dissolved, go back to the classic powder, I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised.
Cost effective, washes well

Finish Powder ROCKS!
Finish powder has to be something that is out of this world. For $18.49, we get over 70 washes (1.5 months worth) of dishwashing from 1.5Kg of powder. This could be even more, if we used LESS powder (we use a little more powder than recommended in the DishDrawer).
We barely scrape our plates (i.e. chunks of food still there), use the DELICATES cycle on our DishDrawer (Low water pressure!) and STILL get perfect results! Who could ask for more? Well, we did! One of our DishDrawers has a broken Drain Filter - Finish Powder gets the grime off t...he dishes and spreads it round the machine, subsequent rinses and Finish Rinse-Aid break the surface tension of the water, and all the garbage is washed away! Amazing! Whats more, Dishwashing Powders contain most, if not all of the same ingredients used in Tablets - whilst they "claim" they have more functionality, we've tried both, and found NO difference. E.g. Tablets claim to have "Coffee Stain Removal," and "Enzymes," "Salt Functions" and so forth, yet powders contain the same ingredients! Surfactants (Rinse-Aid function), Enzymes, Bleaches (Coffee Stains), Phosphates (A water softener agent, like Salt or Citric Acid, also cleans your dishwasher). We are also going to be purchasing some Phosphates to add with our Finish Powder, to get 100% cleaning on ALL items. Perhaps this will mean the "Fast" wash cycle will prove useful for us! SUPERB Value for Money, Includes most - if not ALL ingredients found in Tablets, Dissolves Quickly, No rejects from Dishwasher! It should still come in the Cardboard box. Plastic container's aren't reusable (caustic ingredients) and kill Earth :(
Questions & Answers
Has Finish dishwasher powder changed formulation? It now leaves a white scum on cutlery, metal cookware, and the inside of the dishwasher. We have used Finish for over thirty years but have now changed to another brand which has solved the problem. Dishwasher is Asko and we use rainwater.
