It has a built-in sink.

Its integrated touch display gives it a modern look.

Press the water jet button and water will fill the sink.

Unfortunately, the tab that holds the lid and the sink together comes loose too easily.

Because of that design flaw, you'll likely end up releasing the sink accidentally.

Its display is also difficult to read from a distance.

This model costs $1,099.

Use the sink to presoak or hand-wash delicate items.
