Oversudsing

Creates a froth of bubbles which seems to prevent the dishwasher's water pump from generating the usual amount of water pressure for the spray arms. Presumably the pump is trying to pump air bubbles? Not sure - see photo attached. The Quantum product does not appear to have this issue in my machine (Dishlex DX103).

I'm noticing these large corporate soap manufacturers seem to be changing their chemical formulas for ESG reasons. In my experience the overall trend is the cleaning performance doesn't seem to be as good as it used to. Show details

Waste of money

The tablets don't dissolve in the dish washer once they are released, I had to re wash everything. Definitely wouldn't recommend

So bad I thought my dishwasher was broken

This product is so bad I put one load through three times and it was still dirty. I spent ages making sure all the filters were clean and almost called a plumber before trying another product. Do not buy. Ever

Have to wash by hand after using in dishwasher

Recommended by my German dishwasher manufacturer but every time I’ve used them I’ve had to wash several items again by hand Show details

The worse dishwashing tablets I’ve ever used

DO NOT BUY! 1: they’re so expensive 2:dont clean dishes at al 3: customer service , appalling . I Contacted finish to ask for $36 refund as they don’t clean dishes at all, about 10 emails later they did nothing - THE MOST EXPENSIVE AND WORSE PRODUCT Show details

Absolute Rubbish

I am extremely unhappy with the "Finish Powerball ultimate all-in-one". We bought it as it says that there's no need to pre rinse. However, even with pre rinsing we found that food sticks to the cutlery and the plates.
We usually use Fairy which is far better.
I did try to call Finish to complain about their poor product and even request a refund. However I was put through to an overseas call centre pre-recording and was then hung up on. These are the worse tablets I have used. And is false advertising - no need to pre rinse! Save your money you'd be better off with a generic. Show details

Terrible product, didn’t clean at all

Poor quality product, had to handwash about half the load. Have thrown the rest away as I’d thrown packaging away. Terrible after sales service, very slow reply then just a standard email saying ‘thank you for your feedback, well pass this information on’. When I asked another question I received the same email again, word for word. Won’t buy RB products again. Show details

I put it through twice and it didn’t dissolve these tablets are useless and a waste of money

Tablet didn’t disssolve, the only bit that did was the red liquid and it was like beetroot exploded in the dishwasher.absolutely useless and a waste of money. Not having to pre rinse is the least of your problems using this. Show details

The best of the Finish range

Outstanding performance without the heavy scented fragrance the other tablets have. So if you're sensitive to fragrances and still want excellent results, then these are the best ones you can buy.

Wouldnt use anything else

Cleans great, doesn't leave any residue of tablets and also doesn't leave the horrible taste on plastic cups/bottles ect that other cleaning agents do! Will be using these from now on
Would recommend these to anyone Show details

Dishes are clean

Seems to clean dishes as well as any other finish brand tablets that I have used. Really happy with the results and feels good to be using something that is not as harmful to our earth. Highly recommended. Show details

Great alternative to ordinary dishwasher tablets

Made the swap from regular finish tablets to 0% and can’t see myself changing back anytime soon. Have used alone without 0% rinse aid - tablet alone left my plates and glass wear clean of food and residue spots. Bit perplexed by the low rating. Perhaps others need to clean their dishwasher in order to get best results. Highly recommended for anyone looking to lower added chemicals to their everyday life  Show details

Not good at all

Swapped from Fairy Platinum as they changed the fragrance and I didn't like it. I have previously used Finish products and thought they were ok, but these are NOT. Residue and staining left inside cups and more times than not, the dishes are left wet even after topping up the rinse aid. Would return if I still had the receipt. Show details

Awful product

I've been using the finish products for years and I've always been happy. Recently tried this one. It doesn't clean properly. My dishes have a residue of little particles on them when the cycle is finalized. If I had the receipt, I would return them. Show details

This product is great!

Product works the same as the original. Best when water is soft but does the job even when not. Not sure why the low rating my glasses are always sparkly. These work great! Show details
