They are completely crap and useless. Great on budget, but you'll need to half clean the dishes before you put them in.
Great price...not so great tablets

Are they really that bad? I think my dishwaser came with some Finish tablets (maybe powerball ones?) can't remember now. But they did the job pretty well. They probably weren't classic though

They aren't...until you try fairy platinum for example.
They don't get on with my bosch dishwasher.

They left a light grey residue on my washing up, and when I made the mistake of putting a second in when I restarted a wash, all the stainless steel was encrusted with dried on tablet residue at the end of the cycle, had to scrub the lot and put it on again with a proper dishwasher tablet.

This was a box of classic manufactured in Poland, clearly not intended for the british market, as the store's importer had put on a stickly label with the ingredients in english so it could be sold in UK.

I never had the problem with the standard finish all in one powerball, those just didn't wash that well compared to lidl and aldi tablets etc.

I've got a Bosch (tabletop dishwasher) and the Finish Classic x 72 tablets I got (£2 from Poundland, think it was Caroline_1993 who posted about them) are Polish imports as well. No problems with residue. May be a hard water issue, or they're not disintegrating properly (especially if you use an Eco setting), not sure.

I always use Salt and Rinse Aid, no matter which tablets I use (ukwhitegoods recommend this and thinks 3-in-1 tablets are a fallacy - actually, looking at the site it seems he doesn't recommend tablets at all and prefers Dishwasher Powder - good luck finding that these days! And some details, such as recommending Fairy Active Bursts, are a bit outdated). He also discusses residue on dishes.

Like everyone else, though, Fairy Platinum can't be beat.

Wish someone would post a Deal about Nicky Elite 3-Ply, I'm running out and I prefer it being delivered

I always use the 65°C intensive wash on my Bosch, and I always use salt unless it runs out mid cycle, and the softener unit is set correctly (to max) as I live in a hard water area, and you really do need it if you have hard water, the detergent won't wash as well without it and you'd get limescale building up in the dishwasher if you didn't use it, even the all-in-one tablet manufacturers state to use salt.

I also used rinse aid as it is needed to dry reasonably. My previous dishwasher didn't really need it as that had air drying, rather than relying solely on residual heat drying, as my current one does.

The residue left behind was definitely from the tablet, not limescale or anything else, after using them for several days it took a couple of washes with good quality tablets to completely clear the issue, so it must have been getting stuck in the dishwasher's internals.

I also think the dishwasher powder I used to use, is, or rather was better than tablets, it dissolves much quicker than tablets so spends more time washing, you can increase the dosage if the washing is very greasy, and I found pouring powder in the dispenser more convenient than unwrapping a tablet and getting detergent on my hands, or separating tablets with soluble wrappers that have stuck together in humid weather.

I used to swear by Sun dishwasher powder by Lever (finish powder was rubbish by comparison). Only snag was it attacked glasses far worse than any modern detergent.

Unfortunately you can't get quality powder anymore, and the powder you can get tends to work out expensive per wash and never seems to be on offer while tablets regularly are. Manufacturers also seem to reserve the most effective cleaning ingredients for their all in one tablets, with the more basic tablets being a budget product that doesn't clean as well whether or not you use salt.

Not sure if water hardness is a factor with residue - I'm in Glasgow so the water is soft here.

Think I bought some of the last bottles of dishwasher powder in the universe when I first moved here (10+ years ago) - Poundland had them and I'd lug them home by the armful - Finish brand, though. I'd buy powder if I had the option, especially with me having a tabletop machine. People prefer convenience (space) over efficiency, or maybe they're happy enough with tablets

I've still got Sun dishwasher tablets here from an Approved Food order a while back (which are excellent). The Lidl tablets are great too, actually, bought them on offer a few weeks ago and gave them a trial.
