    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.

    I do love my Oliso, but it is a few years old, the new ones cost more than my older one.

    I LOVE MY OLISIO!!! :). I've had it for 6 mobths! A record for me, any other iron has only lasted at most a mobth. Our water is super duper hard, so I fill it with 1/2 tap and 1/2 bottled or distilled water.

    Oh, did I mention I LOVE IT? I have the blue model.

    Oh and mine has a switch on the heal so if you want to override/ or not use the lift feature, you can use it like any other iron.

    That is a good feature. I also read that it has a setting to allow you to go an extra 30 min before shutting itself off. I hate auto feature on my Shark because it's so short. I normally use my oder iron that doesn't have an auto feature and just keep it plugged into a surge protector and turn it off when I'm done instead of turning the iron off.

    My friend had her 1st Oliso for 4 years and it got LOTS of use. She just bought another one and I bought one as well. I am really loving it.

    My first Rowenta was a leaker, and reluctantly I tried a second one. It has been nice and problem free. It's logged more miles then the Starship Enterprise and is still behaving itself.
