    This is actually listed as a V50 steam generator iron and promises no spitting, and no auto shut off... Anyone have a Reliable brand iron??

    I have it, the orange one. It's a steam generator iron. It's the best iron I've ever used. But I use my no steam solid plate iron the most when I'm pressing blocks.

    I wonder what the difference is between the two besides $40? Actually I think it is the size since the orange one is a compact

    I have the Reliable Digital Velocity Iron too. It is pretty good. Mine is white with dark grey handle and Bluish water tank. It's big! It will leak if you even come close to overfilling it. (for a while) It is also a very heavy Iron when filled with water. I normally prefer heavy Irons but it was hard after shoulder surgery to use it. My sewing buddies are always commenting about how heavy it is. I can turn off the Auto Shut off, I like that!!! Other than overfill, it does not leak or spit. I'm not sure if it gets as hot as my old Rowenta. All in all I am happy with it. I spent over $100 on sale for this baby!!!

    Yep. I have one, and my friend Cindi has one. She gave me the one that used to be her mom's, after her mom passed. She actually did a review on it, you can see it here:

    I love it. It is a steam powerhouse.

    It is a steam powerhouse indeed but one other feature is you can get huge amounts of steam or more gentle steam. 2 steam settings. I have noticed tht Eleanor Burns uses the 100 on her tv show.
