CNET First Look
This LG dishwasher is definitely not amazingThe $700 LG LDS5040ST is quite boring, actually. Though it is still competent, it doesn't have much else going for it.
[MUSIC] Check up this seven hundred dollar LG dishwasher for a reasonable price you've got an amazing pictures like this silverware basket. But it also got an express cycle that clocks in it an hour and a half So, there is that. But hey! At least the tines do this. Wow! How about that? Here is the thing. This dishwasher isn't bad at cleaning, honestly. Especially for the price. That's better than some models that cost a couple $100 more. It's as not as good as similarly priced models from Kenmore and Frigidaire that we recently reviewed. So you'll need to rinse your dishes before you put them in this LG. It doesn't miss many spots but it doesn't handle bulk well. It's not as damning as it sounds, it just doesn't do well enough To score any points as far as performance is concerned. And no it doesn't make up any points on features either. It has an okay mix of cycles. But, all of them are really slow. And, everything else about it is pretty run of the mill. It's pretty quiet, it's easy enough to use, and it looks. Looks fine. Nothing about this LG dishwasher is offensive or bad but we've recently reviewed a number of really good options at the same $700 price. And this LG dishwasher doesn't have anything that would help me recommend it over those. It's fine but you can do better. [SOUND]
