LG's DLEX 5000 has hot looks and dries clothes fast
I never thought a dryer could look cool.
That is until I got my hands on the LG DLEX 5000.
This machine is pricey to the tune of $1500.
But this machine is worth the money because it is more than just a pretty face.
[INAUDIBLE] This dryer is easy to use.
It has tons of features.
We're talking dryer cycles, steam modes, ways to handle different types of clothing and fabric types.
On top of all that, this dryer has smart capabilities.
That means it connects to a mobile application so you can check the status of your clothes or your cycles right from your smartphone or tablet You can also turn it on from a remote location, and you can also download new cycles if you want to add extra functionality.
Best of all this machine dries clothes really well, dries it fast, and it also dries quietly.
There are some downsides to this machine.
It's app is confusing and it's capacity is smaller than you might expect for a machine this expensive.
So when you break it all down, this machine is fast.
It has tons of features and if you can live with the high price, it is definitely worth it.
