I've always wondered about these; Fons and Porter use the yellow one on TV. I just google searched them and you can get them as low as 49; depends on the watts you want. I just might try one. I have cheap irons and they work great; I had the shark but I don't like the fact that you can't change the auto off time frame; Oliso gives quilters an extra 30 minutes if needed. My shark didn't even go30 min. Sounds like worth trying. I've heard enough on this board to know I'd never try the Rowena due to issues w/leaking.
