Please comment: Finish powerball review and experienced

Hello guys,

Wanna buy Finish powerball ( all in one) classic for our dishwasher, could anyone share your experience of this product? As I read review online and most of them were written by north American users, I wanna know reviews from local since our water system is different from the States. I would very much appreciate all the inputs.

Cheers,
Iris

We use Finish 'power ball' detergent pods in the dishwasher - seem to work just fine. Dishes are always clean, without residue. Not sure what else one may expect out of dishwasher pods, but in my experience, they do their job without side effects...!

For us the "all-in-one" bit didn't work, probably because the water is so hard.

Cleaning was good (but no better than Migros tablets half the price), glasses and cuttlery had limescale streaks.

I use Aldi's classic and add dish salt and rince aid, but I think they also do an all-in-one version. For sure it'll be cheaper than either Finish proper or Migros' version - and do the job just as well.

I found the Powerball ok, but still sometimes left residue. I have since switched to Quantum and I found they are better than the Powerball.

Since Aunt Hildegund passed away, who was a respected source of houshold information and wisdom, my family is now forced to rely on K-Tipp or Saldo tests for consumer product information:

https://www.ktipp.ch/tests/testsiege...ger_id=1038930

Of the 15 dishwasher tabs tested, Finish Quantum was the only one that received the coveted "sehr gut". The other 14 received only "gut".
