Getting Steamed About LG Steam Dryer Spots

So With All This Whizbang Technology, Why Fake The Star Attraction?
As someone who's been appliance shopping lately, a TV spot I caught a couple of days ago for the LG Steam Dryer grabbed my attention.
Thoughts of sending the iron to my dustbin vanished as the announcer extolled the virtues of the Steam Fresh feature, which injects steam via a pump and cartridge system to reduce wrinkles on dry clothing without water.
Pretty cool, huh. And you'd think that for the privilege of shelling out as much as $1,400 for the machine you'd get to watch the steam in motion. You do in the commercial. Only thing, up flashes a "steam simulated" sign.
Fake steam? Now I'm steamed!
