Dishwasher detergent reviews

We test over 40 dishwashing detergents in the CHOICE labs, including tablets, powders and gels from Finish, Morning Fresh, Aldi and more.

Last updated: 1st September 2014

Even the worst dishwasher performs better with a good dishwasher detergent. But a cheap price doesn't always mean a bad quality detergent, nor does a high price mean you're buying the best.

We review dishwasher detergents of all types, including tablets, powders and gels, to determine which products:

  • perform best
  • are the best value for money (based on cost per wash)
  • are environmentally friendly and cruelty-free.
