Great iron, reduces strain
I bought this iron for my grandmother who is a seamstress. She absolutely loves it and tells all of her friends about it, too. It not only has great steam, but it has a nice pointed tip area for making nice seams and of course it lifts itself up so you don't have to worry about burning clothes or yourself. Best of all, my grandmother doesn't have to lift the iron any more since it stays horizontal... she has arthritis and it makes it difficult to iron when she has to keep lifting it.
This iron is fantastic!
I am taking a quilting class and they use the Oliso iron's there. I really enjoyed working with them so I purchased one for myself. I really like that you can just let go of the iron right in the middle of a project and it lifts and doesn't leave a burn spot! This iron is fantastic! Whoever came up with the idea is a genius. I would definitely recommend this to everyone I know.
I Love This Iron
I bought this model because as a quilter, I wanted an iron with an auto shut off, but I wanted an extended shut off time (the other models turn off a lot more quickly than this one). I love how fast this iron heats up. As for actual ironing--it does a very nice job---no better than any other iron would...every iron is simply a hot metal plate that presses out wrinkles..it's not rocket science...it's all about the bells and whistles, and this one is, by far, the most unique iron on the market...
