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.

Good product from a respected overseas manufacturer.
Can only be purchased online. Courier cost is then added at about $12 for a box of 60 tabs making this product far more expensive than NZ products that are just as good, or better, and readily available in local shops. It’s surprising that Consumer did not comment on or factor in this extra cost.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
