I prefer to use dishwasher tablets as although they cost a little bit more to use than standard powder detergent; they are much quicker and easier to use. The whole idea of a dishwasher is to make one's life easier, thus it anything that makes my life even more stress free is better for me. Easy company make value dishwasher products. One of their latest creations was lemon power. I cannot resist a bargain so when I saw these Easy tablets on offer, I thought I would try them.
I buy the biggest packet as usually it means I get the best value for money but as I was unfamiliar with the lemon flavour I went for a smaller packet. I bought a packet of 12 for a pound from Home Bargains. This is really good value and worth a try at this price.
The tablets come in a box packaging with the logo on the front. I have a dishwasher metal tin where I store them from the packaging though The individual capsules are white with a blue bottom and a yellow section on the top. I usually prefer liquid tablets as this is quicker at dispersing the detergent and starting the cleaning process. The tablets state that they contain glass protection, metal shine, rinse aid action & salt action. They are an all in one tablet which makes it superb and easy to use. The tablets are designed and tested for use in all leading dishwashers, I can imagine there are very few that they are not compatible with.
The art of using a dishwasher involves the correct stacking of items within the machine and making sure that you rinse really dirty plates before putting into the machine. The dishwasher tablet such as this is great but you need to have all the food washed off your plates first. The tablets clean the items in the dishwasher really well and in fact they leave them with a really wonderful shine.
Our glasses came out with a little shine and slight water marks which is poor as I hate dirty wine glasses, especially if I have guests round for dinner. Plates and pots come out streak free and really clean looking. I also have found that my cutlery comes out without needing a polish; as soon as it is dry it can go back into the drawer. The glasses are a big disappointment and doubt how much glass protection is in the product. Glasses just look a little bit cloudy.
Obviously the main selling point of the tablets is the lemon scent but you really cannot smell any lemon, they smell rather chemical. Neither the plates nor glasses are contaminated by the smell nor does it not leave a flavour on the glass and cookware which is good. I find that there are just as successful as the leading brand and will certainly look to buying them again, especially for the bargain price but I was disappointed with the cleaning of the glasses.
