    I have the Oliso Pro and while it is a little pricey I love it. It does not need special water, just tap water and while it has an automatic cut-off it stays on longer than the previous models. They have a website.

    I bought a Shark from Walmart... The paperwork said tap water was fine but bottled or distilled would work as well. But DH thought it would be best to use distilled water because we use a salt water systern on our tap, made sense... so far so good.

    I just go to Walmart and buy the old standard Black and Decker called "The Classic". It has never let me down. I have heard so many bad things about the most expensive irons. I just decided I didn't want to spend the money. The Black and Decker is a good name.

    I use a Black & Decker "Classic". It is wonderful!!! Best $30.00 I spent! I use reg. tap water, and have no problems. This iron is great! Have had it for several years.

    I love my Rowenta! I have had it for many years. I don't use tap water because it smells like bleach and is very hard/I don't drink it either.

    My Rowenta died after less than 2 years of pretty good use. It did not have an automatic shut-off. As long as I remembered to shut it off before leaving the room, I liked it. Now I have a Shark with automatic shut-off. Getting used to it.

    Word of advice: When the instructions say to run the iron through two tanks of water/steam before using it on clothes - it is a good idea to do so. I didn't and ended up with brown steam spots on a white shirt. grrrrr! Slapping self silly.

    I use my Rowenta now dry as it leaked! Just saw a new iron at least to me--called Velocity. Pricey but looked like a metal plate which I like. I like some of the older irons better than the new ones.

    I had two Rowenta, very pricey and neither one would steam properly to iron with. Gave them both awsy and now have a Black and Decker from Walmart that works great. Only $20. and when it dies I will buy another one.
