Overall score is the average of 6 scores for stain removal.
We test in a controlled lab environment using plates that are pre-stained. We get the plates from the same company that supplies consumer organisations and dishwasher manufacturers globally. We set the dishwasher to a standard cycle at 60°C and test each detergent 4 times. To see how well the detergents have cleaned the plates, we measure the reflectance with a spectrophotometer before and after cleaning.

Works only OK. Cleans most of the time.
Extra bad on Tea stains. Used a brush after easily.
Every now and again, have to scratch food off.
Don't know why so high a score.
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.

Leaves tea stains as if cups hadn't even been washed. A waste of time - amazed that the product is recommended by Consumer!
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
