    If you notice Fons & Porter use to have the Oliso but in their newest PBS programs they use I believe Reliable (could be wrong) I do know that it's not the Oliso anymore

    I have heard that the yellow iron doesn't have all the bugs worked out yet .. But the other 2 irons are super from comments I have heard...

    It seems like the more gimmicks/gadgetry a device has, the more that can go wrong with it.

    I was so excited about this iron; purchased on 50% off at JoAnn's and find that it is just too heavy for me. I loved the up/down feature, however was so used to using the iron I have that sits atop it's own water (steam) tower. Ended up returning the iron. Great features, though.

    I read a review on irons a while ago and it suggested for your money the best working one with the best price was bought at Wal-mart for less than $30 and it was a Black & Decker model.

    Sorry I don't remember where I read it.

    I had a Rowenta that lasted for years ironing hubbys shirts then when I started quilting it finally gave up and I've bought two since and they don't last as long . . . .bummer.

    I am over expensive irons. Having spent over $100 twice... I will stay with my cheap one, its outlasted any of the pricey ones. IF someone has an iron with a LIFETIME guarantee I would consider the big $$ again.

    Bought mine about 6 months ago..love it!
    that being said I'm optimistic it will have a long life and not run into problems should it need repair.
