Still pre-rinsing your dishes before putting them in the dishwasher? Maybe it's time to bring your kitchen into the 21st century with a new steam dishwasher from LG.

Boasting one of the largest stainless steel tub capacities around, the dishwasher first steams stuck-on food from plates and dishes. With the dirty work out of the way early in the cycle, the appliance is able to use less water, under less pressure, to finish washing. That's good news for china and stemware.

Lots more features are packed into this sleek machine. An innovative third rack holds those awkward items like long serving spoons and spatulas. Interior lighting means you won't be groping around dark corners of the diswasher for that last clean bowl or spoon. Racks glide out smoothly and quietly, even when loaded to capacity with 14 plate settings.

Have a mixture of sturdy and delicate washables? You can set the wash cycle intensity differently for top and bottom racks -- in the same load. Integrated digital controls are user friendly, allowing one-touch starting. And the built-in disposer is one of the quietest in the industry at 45 decibels.

The only drawback so far appears to be that the dishwasher is available only in stainless steel.
