How we rate dishwasher detergents

Our review compares dishwasher detergents on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which dishwasher detergent they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 1,613 Australians for their feedback on the dishwasher detergent(s) they’ve purchased and used in the last six months. Note: this includes tablets, gels and powders.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their dishwasher detergent brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a dishwasher detergent brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Effectiveness: the dishwasher detergent was consistently effective in cleaning dishes.
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and performance of the dishwasher detergent.
  • Packaging convenience: the dishwasher detergent was easy to open and store, with the individual packets easy to use and place in dishwasher.
  • Scent: the dishwasher detergent has a pleasant odour that matches the description (i.e. lemon, etc.).
  • Ease of use: the dishwasher detergent was easy to use, with sufficient instructions provided.

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  1. ALDI Logix
  2. Fairy
  3. Shine
  4. Finish
  5. Morning Fresh
  6. Coles Ultra
  7. Earth Choice
