Keeps your dishwasher's filter clean!
July 4, 2017
For the last decade or so, all modern dishwashers have had a removable/cleanable metal screen at the bottom. For years, I would go through the painstaking process of removing this and other associated parts every 4 to 6 months, and cleaning off the sludge that always accumulated and clogged it up. When shopping for a new dishwasher, I described this problem and asked the sales person to show us models without this screens. To which he replied "they all have them now, it is a code required feature, however it sounds to me like you're simply using too much dishwashing soap. The liquid stuff does not dissolve very well, and if you squirt a bunch in and fill up the cup, it causes that build up that's very hard to remove." He recommended the dishwasher packs (which I always thought were a more expensive gimmick). I've been using these in a new dishwasher since 2015 and I haven't had to clean anything out yet! I haven't seen any change in performance of the cleaning power either. I recommend.
