The LG LDF5545ST hides lots of features beneath its sleek surface

The LG LDF5545ST is the first model we've tested with Quad Wash. Four spray arms instead of two promise to clean your dishes better and faster. The feature fulfills that promise, but it's the rest of the LDF5545ST's features that really make it worth its $700 price.
