Average at Best

The tablets don’t do a very good job shifting grease. If the load isn’t too soiled they are ok. They are a budget option for an emergency but not as good as some other supermarket’s home brand options ( which are also cheaper ). Hard to recommend. Show details

Excellent product. Cost saver

We switched to these around 4 months ago, do a great job at a fraction of the price. At $6 for 40 tablets they are a quarter of the price of the Finish tabs we were using. We have a Westinghouse dishwasher, mid range, and they work perfectly. We do pre-rinse, if the kids forget, or do a bad job the tablets can be less effective, but is that our dishwasher or the tablets? I read reviews describing how the tablets didn't dissolve however this hasn't been an issue for us. Over all I would recommend these tablets for cost saving alone. Show details

Works extremely well without the hefty price tag

Tried after others users suggested for its price and just as effective as branded tablets. Very true an now converted although stil would need to use the rinse aide and that also cheap so win win! Show details

Simply the best!!

For many years we have used the most expensive Finish tablets which we were quite happy with, but as inflation has increased with its financial restraints, it has been necessary to economise. We purchased the Coles tablet because they were the cheapest! We figured maybe do 6 washes with the cheap tablets and the expensive Finish on the 7th!........but after just 5 washes our dishes were pristine clean and the cutlery more sparkling than ever. For all those doing 1 star reviews I would suggest you are doing something wrong! It is most important to scrape off all solids and give the plates a quick rinse before loading the dishwasher and put the tablet in the cutlery basket not in the soap dispenser! Show details

Does the job at a fraction of the price

I only bought these because there were no other tablets left. Surprisingly good for price. I use in a Bosch serie 6 and use Finish rinse aid. Will buy again. Show details

Great Product

These dishwasher tablets are as good as the top brands for cleaning but at only 15c a tab , a huge saving.
NOTE - you have to remove the tablet from the plastic coating as the instructions state, but people are giving a bad review stating that the tablet didn't dissolve so didn't do a proper job.
Thats the fault of the user not the tablet.
Save yourself the money buying expensive brands as this does the job. Show details

Great tablet, still at great price

Just as good if not better than top Finish or Fairy tablets at a fraction of the price.
Never have any dissolving problems as always put at bottom of cutlery basket.
Bought them on recommendation of customer who told me I would be mad to waste my money on more expensive tablets. I totally agree and have given the same advice to other customers.
Now an extra $1 but still far cheaper and better than the competition.

Worst dishwasher tablets ever!!!

In trying to reduce costs, I tried this product. They do not dissolve at all and leave a filmy residue on all dishes. Very disappointed and now wasted money I didn’t have.  Show details

Does not dissolve

I have a premium top of the line Bosch dishwasher but these tablets do not dissolve and do not clean. They used to be good (the ones in the plastic pouch) but the new pack (in a box) has a different formula and doesn’t do the job. Show details


They used to be really good but unfortunately coles must of changed the ingredients in them.
Everytime I use one I open my dishwasher and sure enough theres half a tablet that has not been dissolved and is leaving residue on my dishes and cutlery ( leaves rust marks on my cutlery) not happy at all. Show details

Wast of money

Coles must have changed their formula , I used to buy the tablets in the soft resealable pack and they were great , but have not been able to buy them so bought the packet and they are shocking . May as well not use them at all and get the same results

Wonderful!! They work really well

Have found these dishwasher tablets to be very good! I have been pleasantly surprised at how well they work for a cheap product. Removing the tablets from the plastic wrapper can be a challenge at times but still worth the effort.


The coles dishwasher tablets 6 in 1 are great

You need to remove the wrapper as its not dissolvable like the finish or fairy tablets. Read the back of the box. The coles 6 in 1 tablets clean heaps better then the brand names and dont make your dishes smell like a wet dog and at a 1/4 of the price. I will never buy finish or fairy tablets again.

They do not work. Wasted money & effort trying to save money. These dishwashing tablets should be avoided. Coles should take this product off the market - it is far from a 'powerful clean'.

Not good leaves half the tablet undissoved

I have been recently been using Coles Ultra with Active Oxygen dishwashing tablets (28 tablets per box). Without fail after every completed cycle, I find half the tablet left behind in the dishwasher, undissolved and on the contents of my cutlery basket where I place it. These tablets have a completely dissolvable wrapper, and that is no problem but it is annoying to find the handles of your cutlery coated with dishwashing tablet and some of the tablet at the bottom of the basket at the end of the cycle and having to rinse the cutlery by hand after every wash. Will not recommend this product and will not buy it again.
