So far, these action pacs work like a charm. I haven't used them without pre-washing, but they leave all of my glass streak free and they don't leave residue behind. My other store brand always leaves so much residue, I have to then wash again AFTER they've been washed before using. These are a win!!!

These are the BEST dish pods to use!! We have very hard water in our area of town so there are almost always water spots or some sort of something left behind.  Not when you use these platinum action pacs!  They have the rinse aid build right into the pod. 

And it is a huge plus that they come in a resealable container for safety!

When the packs work properly the dishes come out sparkly clean! They also have a great, fresh fragrance. The downside is that about 50% of the time they do not dissolve completely and get stuck in the dispenser cup. Then I'm left with clean-ish dishes that I end up having to re-wash. Not worth the price for me.

Love these. Gets dishes cleaned in one round..which I need with a toddler..we tend to have lots of sippy cups. Another great thing is it doesn't leave the greasy residue the dishes go into the dishwasher with. Currently I am trying another product and it has nothing on these pods. Can't wait to go out and purchase these again.

LOVE THESE! They’re a bit pricey compared to the normal grocery store brands but these make the dish washer so easy. There’s never a liquid mess from the detergent since they’re in convenient packs and they work well at both cleaning the dishes and preventing water spots. I recommend to everyone!

I was using another brand and switched to Cascade. This really does remove food particles and leaves dishes clean. It’s the only one that I’ll use now. This works better than the other lines of Cascade. It’s expensive, but I want my dishes clean. There isn’t a need to wash again.

I have tried using this product now with two different, brand new dishwashers and both came out with the same results over and over again- these pods never disintegrated! They stay as pods and just plop themselves onto a dirty dish and stay there for the duration of a wash cycle- which then ends up just rinsing your dirty dishes instead of washing them. They are a total waste of money.

For the record, I only ever use the Cascade brand for dish washing soap- I just buy the liquid form because I've had such bad luck with the pods not working.

These are so quick and easy. They’re like a tide pod for dishes! You just pop them in the little holder and you’re good to go. I love not having to mess around with a scoop and messy detergent. Cleans the dishes beautifully and they’re always spotless after washing!

We have FINALLY found the right detergent for our dishwasher! We had messed with other brands packs in the past, and combinations of liquid prewash with packs, but were still finding the same things....water spots, and incomplete cleans. This product is A+

Do these work better than the liquid detergent? It's more expensive and you seem to get less out of it. I'm not sure I can tell a difference.
