    My husband is thinking of getting me the Oliso 1600 for my birthday. If you own one, do you think it is worth the money? Thanks.

    I have had 2 of them and had to return them since the feet that raise it broke and the iron would do a header!

    I love mine too. I don't know that it irons any better but I don't mind all the pressing as much. No problem with it tipping over since it's already down. I'm not sure what model I had, but I found it on sale at one of the bed and bath type stores.

    I've been through 6 and all dumped water "like a new born babe" as one person described. Supposedly they have been improved but I wouldn't trust it. I got really bad vibes from a person at their booth at a quilt show. When I tried to describe mhy problem she told me to come back when I didn't have so long to stay. I do not recommend it. They are ok as a dry iron but I don't trust the steam. Spend your $$ elsewhere.

    I have the 1050 and loooove it. I can't speak for the 1600 though.

    The person in the booth kept asking if I bought the iron from her and when I said no she wouldn't talk about it. I looked at the sign in the booth and pointed out she was the company. Aparantly the booth was manned by a subcontractor ofthe company. Each time I had the problem the company replaced it and I finally just gave up and stacked all 6 on a shelf. They work good for dry ironing but I sure don't trust the ones I have for steam Perhaps the newer ones are better.
