Product ruining my cookware

Pros
None
Cons
Tarnish Pots Pans Badly
Best Uses
None
Comment:
I have noticed my pots and pans have dis colored and are rough to the touch since I started using the Cascade Complete Actionpacs. Only way this can be removed is by using a steel wool pad . The tarnish spots still remain on my cake pans and cookie sheets. I've always used Cascade dish washing liquid without any problems until I changed to these action pacs. I am not pleased with my cookware being ruined by this product.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Does not remove stains
Best Uses
Comment:
Cascade was used in a older Whirlpool Dishwasher with all the bells and whistles and not very hard water was used with this product, very hot water was used on every cycle, the product did clean but was horrible on getting off stains on anything plastic or colored glass such as Corelle and left a white film on black colored plastic and wooden utensils, although I have used Cascade powder for years and have somewhat similar results these pacs were the worst performers ever, I will be returning to another dishwasher detergent I have used inbetween using Cascade
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
