Somat for dishwashers is a fairly popular brand, but not as advertised and well-known as the same Finish. And it’s not worse in quality and much cheaper. Of course, there are reviews and not very good ones, but, in fairness: what product are 100% of buyers satisfied with? There is no such thing in the world!
In our review, you will learn first-hand what non-hand washers say about it, learn a brief history of the brand and read our conclusions from the reviews.
A little about the manufacturer Henkel
Yes, exactly the same famous Henkel! The name “Somat” confuses many buyers, since it is practically unknown. And to see who the manufacturer is, they don’t always guess and hastily conclude that it’s not worth the risk and it’s better to take something more serious. Henkel is an old German company with 340 factories in 70 countries.
It was founded back in 1876 and was originally aimed at the production of washing powders. The most famous product on our market is Persil. So, now you know that there is nothing doubtful about this name.

Tablets for dishwashers Somat, reviews
Good tool, you can take it!
Advantages– price, quality, excellent laundering
Flaws- the tablet is packed in a film, it is inconvenient to unfold
We bought a dishwasher three years ago. At first, I took detergents only separately: powder, salt and rinse aid. It worked out much cheaper that way.
But over time, from the fact that the funds do not end at the same time, you get a little tired. If you forget to take something in time, the wash is delayed. So I started looking for pills.
I found Somat on a promotion and one tablet came out only 9 rubles. I tried it and have no regrets!
Washes perfectly, washes away even soot. And most importantly, a convenient size: quite small. There are such huge and uncomfortable ones that get stuck in the compartment. In general, I recommend!
Very satisfied, great! At this price, it’s a fairy tale!
Advantages- washes everything!
Flaws- without smell
Bought the product for only 400 rubles! To be honest, I used to take only expensive pills, because it was scary to harm a new typewriter. But, over time, I still began to look around and look for an alternative. Still, to lay out 1,500 rubles a month is quite noticeable for our family.
Somat has become just a salvation! He launders everything: greasy butter dishes, pots, cups with a touch of tea. The dishes just creak to the touch. In a word — class!
I threw them away… They don’t dissolve!
Advantages — there are none!
Flaws — one big flaw!
I was very upset and realized that they were telling the truth — the miser pays twice. These miracle pills do not dissolve even after two washes. And, of course, the dishes are washed very badly. Threw it away without looking.
Here are some conflicting reviews. We believe that the point here is that buyers used different washing modes. If you wash with water at 60 degrees on medium mode, then the tablets dissolve perfectly and wash everything.

Powder for dishwashers Somat, reviews
In my opinion, this is just perfect!
Advantages — price, cleans well
Flaws — not found
One sink costs only 4 rubles, which, you know, is just a great option. Salt is enough for a long time, and rinse aid is an optional thing.
Therefore, I do not see any point in complex remedies and tablets. The main thing is that it launders qualitatively and does not leave streaks. And I don’t need more.
1 teaspoon and all dishes, like new!
Advantages — a solid advantage, the packaging is the most convenient
Flaws — They are not here
I have been using dishwasher for 7 years now. During this time, I tried everything I could. But not a single powder made such an impression on me.
Packing 2.5 kg costs only 470 rubles. At first I poured the recommended dose, washed it to a squeak. But once, when I was running out of it, I poured out the rest, there was no more than a teaspoon. And, imagine, the effect of washing was the same! Of course, the dishes were medium dirty, but still …
It is important that the packaging is not cardboard. It will not get wet if moisture accidentally gets on it and does not deteriorate.
Reviews are unanimous and we haven’t found a single bad word about this product anywhere on the net. So, we strongly recommend it.
Gel for dishwashers Somat, reviews
Good, but inconvenient to pour.
Advantages – ideal for small cars, inexpensive
Flaws — the agent is poured unevenly
I can say that he washes very well. But, I don’t like pouring it at all. Why the manufacturers did this is not clear. According to the instructions, you need to deftly pour the same amount of that and that color. But, it never works out that way. And in the end, one color always finishes first.
So, this is a fat minus. And in general, the gel is such a thing that I don’t see the point in using it on an ongoing basis. Powders are more economical, and I take the gel only when there is no powder on the shelves, but I urgently need it.
Too aggressive smell and high consumption!
Advantages — except perhaps the price, but the powder is still cheaper
Flaws – the smell is strongest, the consumption is huge, it is inconvenient to pour
I fell for the novelty, I bought it. I can not say that I am very sorry, but the remedy did not make any impression. The smell is too intrusive for me. When washing, the whole kitchen smells of it.
And it ends way too fast. The recommended dose is 30 ml. But this is not enough! It is necessary to pour an almost full compartment, and only then will there be any sense.
Yes, the gel, apparently, is not the best option. At prices, it is no more profitable than pills, and more hassle, and ends faster. Somat for dishwashers, so it is best to take it in powder form!
