Before Cascade came out with the All-in-1 product, it was just plain old Cascade, and we were reasonably satisfied with its performance. Then, the All-in-1 product came out, and there was a DISTINCT and NOTICEABLE improvement in the dishes. We changed grocery stores, and the new store didn't have the All-in-1, so we bought some Dawn Gel. After a few washings, we noticed our glasses were filmy and the silverware was still dirty. I had to rewash a half load of dishes by hand because they were still filthy. We thought maybe the dishwasher broke! I looked at the label of the Dawn, and realized it wasn't the same product I had bought the last few times. We had to go to a different store to get the All-in-1 to see if the problem was the detergent, and sure enough, it was! So, it looks like I'm going to have to get rid of the Dawn Gel by filling the first cup with that, and then get the dishes really clean with the All-in-1 product. Really, don't waste your time and money with the Dawn Gel. Get the All-in-1 product...it's far superior.
