Hi Everyone!! I'm in the market for a new iron. I have a 3 years old euro-steam and its dying. I'm not sure if I want to invest more money to have it fixed or buy a new iron. has anyone bought a new iron lately that they love or hate. Feedback would be appreciated! Thanks, Gina

I buy cheap at KMart. When it dies, I buy another. I guess I'm not an iron expert.

Just to change it up a bit, here is some "food for thought" When I went to Ricky Tims Quilt seminar he told us what he uses always.......... not a stream iron at all, just a plain, simple iron and a spray bottle of water! I just may go that route with my next iron, as it seems no matter which iron I have tried in the past or have now, if it's steam......... it leaks or seems to be out of water when I need it and it does turn off much to quickly!

Back to the basic seems like it's going to work best! (Altho, I am tempted to try one of the Oliso's now that you have mentioned them) LOL

I agree with the Oliso comments! I've had mine almost two years now and absolutely love it. I bought mine from Amazon because it was greatly reduced, not knowing much about the brand, but encouraged by all of the great reviews. I was impressed from the moment I plugged it in. Not only does it stay on longer but it also heats much quicker that the Rowenta it replaced! I would definately buy this iron again even at full price.

I have a Rowenta and I like it, however, I would like an iron that doesn't shut off after just a few minutes.  The Oliso sounds like it might be the way to do.  I'd never heard of them before.  Good luck in your search!  One tip I've learned after going through several steam irons is to use a spray bottle of water instead of using the steam feature on the iron.  It seems to save the iron and gives it a longer life.

Another vote for the Oliso--I have had mine for about 6 months and just love it.   As Carol Ann said, it jumps up when you take your hand off.   No more scorching fabric or the cover of the board.   Took a bit of adjustment when I first got it, but oh how I love it now.

Love my Oliso Smart Iron Pro TG1600!    It stands up on it's little feet when you set it down so you don't have to up-end it, and it will wait 30 minutes for you to get back to it before it shuts off!  Very convenient for quilters.
