So this is the Cascade Platinum that says “15Xs power” and the stuff that is 22.99 currently at Costco is the “16Xs power”
For 9$ difference I will go with the 15Xs stuff.

Either way. 15Cents a pod for Cascade platinum I figured was worth posting.
I just checked the last tub that I picked up in store. 16x (92+10 pods)

Both fit our 800 series Bosch ... however even Bosch states better cleaning and product life with Finish ... it may be a manufacturer design thing.

I have a Bosch also! Not sure what model, but I find that Cascade does clean better. I used Finish as the unit asked to but it left residue even with the RinseAid...

For clarity here, there is a HUGE difference between the products Quantum and Max ... we only use Quantum, as my wife swears Max has sand in it from the residue

Does Costco sell the finish quantum? So far, these cascade pods are working well for me. They are a huge upgrade from that crappy powerball or whatever you call the one with a red ball in the middle.

Edit: never mind, I see the quantum are the crappy powerball ones.

I also had problems with Finish powerball type pods which over time eventually left a brown greasy residue. I also had to use the finish cleaner to get rid of the residue.

There have been other complaints on the internet about the same greasy residue. It looks like it’s caused by a combination of (low) water temperature and water type (hardness/ minerals).

Cascade pods don’t seem to have this problem for me

Do any of these things come without a dissolvable skin? My Bosch doesn't clean for shit with any of these wrapped pods.

Could be ... our Bosch has its own heater unit (it gets crazy hot inside) and all our water is softened ... but I could see where this would cause problems, especially the low water temperature.

Are you using the ECO mode? ... if so, try one of the longer modes

No. It's the soap or the dissolving skins, or a combination of both. Oxiclean dishwasher crystals leave my dishes and the dishwasher itself completely spotless with no smell of any kind, but that's been discontinued for a year or two and my prepper-sized stash is running out. I'm facing bleak future of grimy, swamp-smelling dishes and I don't like it.

Yeah, we had issues with cascade pods not cleaning as well. We swapped back and forth a few times - definitely the cascade as an issue. Same for my parents. Neither of us have hard water though.

We're trying the kirkland pods right now. We'll see.

Cascade package was way better. We still use the last cascade tub for pods.

I prefer Finish Quantum.

This doesn't seem to rinse as well.
It also doesn't seem to clean as well either.

X2 ... wife tells me to never buy Cascade again for the same exact reasons.

She insists we only use Finish Quantum

Oh good! I'm not cray.
Sad because I like the Cascade packaging better.
Oh well. Time to dump the cubes of Finish into the Cascade bucket.

I hate the stupid foil packaging on the finish tabs. Never had a problem with cascade platinum
It depends on your dishwasher. Go with what the manufacturer recommends. I was having issues with the finish ones not dissolving or leaving a film and have had no issues since switching to cascade.

I use these pods but find that my spoon and forks have streaks left on them. Could this be because of the pods or something else ??
