    Lots of previous discussions on this one! Type in "irons" in the search box at the top menu bar, and read all the comments. It helped me buy mine-

    My only needs in an iron are auto off and steam. The one I have now is a Rowenta but I would not spend that much on one of them again. I really liked the Black & Decker I had before (19.99 probably!) a lot better. One that uses tap water is nice too so you don't have to buy water for the steam.

    I just bought the Oliso iron. I bought it at a sewing expo I decided that I really need an iron that will do the job. I had a rowenta but because of the open water resovoir a bug got into it and my other one a Black and Decor just quit so for me it just happened to be the right time. I love the fact I don't have to set it up and the quick heat up. It does have a time out feature that is 30 mins which is better then the rowent which was 8 minutes.

    I've had a Rowenta and while I loved it, I killed it just as quick as any other one. My only requirements are steam, auto shut off and not very heavy. Just bought a Sunbeam that has 3 different setting for the amount of steam and was around $30.

    I like my Shark Professional. Great steam and auto shut off. About 40 dollars at Walmart I think. I had the Shark lightweight and liked it also but knocked it off the ironing board and broke it. The Shark Professional is the best iron I have had since I quit buying the Rowenta. They didn't last any longer than the cheap irons and got tired of paying the big dollars for them. I did like their steam though but the Shark is just as good. Patricia

    I bought a Sunbeam at Walmart a couple of years ago and I love it. It was about $25.00, has auto turn off, holds a lot of water, has lots of steam, and is guaranteed not to drip. Also comes with a cute little container that holds the right amount to fill it.

    I have a Sunbeam - model 3985
    I have been using it for about 4 years and it is used daily as I sew almost every day. I make alot of quilt blocks and the tip of the iron is important and this one has a pointy end verses rounded. About $25.00 at Walmart
    Have a Blessed day
