    Does anyone have an Oliso Iron and if so, what do you think of it? I have had several Rowenta Irons and eventually they ALWAYS leak or spit out water.

    I have found the same problem with Rowenta and decided to do away with it. Got a Black and Decker Retro, so cute.
    I tried a Oliso at a quilt class. Can't say I would spend the money on one, was not impressed, just my opinion.

    I was wondering the same thing. That kick up it does is pretty cool. Lol dropped my Shark Iron yesterday, and now it leaks. Guess I'll go back to Costco and spend another $25. It'll eventually add up to an Oliso at this rate. Lolol.....unless.... What if I drop that one? Ha..

    I have a small Proctor that I got at the thrift store. Works great... and doesn't leak----yet. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    Didn't like it at all. I would spend my money on another brand. We sold them where I work. We soon quit. Not a good iron.

    Love my oliso. Worth every penny I spent on it. Gets super hot and had no problems. If I ever have yo replace it will be with another one.

    My aunt has a cordless one. Never knew about them before. Was thinking about getting one.

    I had an Oliso and hated it because it is so darn heavy if you do have to move it from surface to surface. If you have a dedicated ironing space, it might be okay but I am happier with my Panasonic! I have one with a cord and a cordless one and really like them both. I take the corded one to classes. Neither have ever leaked and I have had both of them over five years now!
