Oliso® Pro™ TG1600 Smart Iron (pink) is rated out of 5 by 1397.Rated 1 out of 5 by CCCCCC from really bad experience, twice! I first bought this iron at the Road to California show and liked it until something melted inside and it began smoking and dripping hot plastic from the steam holes onto the ironing board and the floor. I returned that one and the replacement iron spewed hot steamy water all over quilt pieces I was trying to press (the steam feature was not on). Returned THAT one and requested a refund but was told it had been too long since purchase so they sent me ANOTHER iron which I absolutely did not want, did not trust, and eventually gave it (unopened!) to a quilting group who was willing to give it a chance.Date published: 2018-04-19Rated 1 out of 5 by 7 pups4geb from Went through two, neither held up I was given the first iron as a mothers day gift from my family. They all chipped in because the cost was high. I loved the pop down foot feature. It eliminated the worry of the iron tipping over. Unfortunately, the first one had to be returned because the foot function stopped working. I was sent a replacement for no charge. It worked well for about a year and stopped heating. Since it was beyond the warranty period, the cost to have it repaired was $70. Instead of repairing and investing more money on top of the $200+ my family paid; I bought a $20 iron, it's reliable and works quite well.Date published: 2018-04-19Rated 5 out of 5 by tanya from the best iron ever, i will never go without again First...i love the fact it has an extra long cord , also it heats up extra fast. i really love the i-touch feature its very convenient and you can also choose to turn off this i-touch feature , i also think when buying an expensive iron from Quilters stand point the tip of the iron is very important as well , i love the small tip of this iron it glides perfectly on my small Quilting seams , the last thing is the durability of this iron, i had it for 3 years now, and i have never had a hitch with it !!! helpful info. i do not ,will not use this iron for any heat n bond or any sticky craft work etc... , i have a less expensive iron for thatDate published: 2018-04-25Rated 4 out of 5 by Chickie from I love this iron. I’v owned many Iron through my quilting years. This is my favorite. Not having to sit it up whenever I need to stop ironing for a moment is such a convenience. I can even just take my hand off the handle without moving it off my fabric. I’ve had 2 of them, not because the first broke, but because I bought the one for quilting that has the long cord and doesn’t shut off for 30 minutes so I can sew & press without having to wait for it to reheat every time. I gave my first one to my daughter. We both love them. The only thing that I wish was different is that I’m not able to completely empty the water from the reservoir when I’m finished using it.Date published: 2018-04-20Rated 3 out of 5 by Deborah171 from Disappointment I really wanted to like this iron. It is my second one. I had it in yellow and less than a year later, it leaked. Oliso replaced it and allowed me to trade it in for pink which was awesome. I treat my irons with respect but use them frequently as I'm a quilter. The cover plate turns brown and is difficult to clean. I use bottled water as recommended and yet, it just is a disappointment. Sometimes it doesn't get hot and othertimes it clearly is too hot. Sometimes it leaks, and sometimes it doesn't. I really love the pink iron and really love the heat when it works right......but it doesn't work right!Date published: 2018-04-19Rated 1 out of 5 by Laura from Very Poor First, I will start by saying you are not going to like this review. I purchased your iron at a quilt show. Unfortunately, they had none available to take, and promised to send them as soon as manufactured. The only good thing is that it did come in a few weeks as promised. The lift system on the iron stopped working within a month. Since it was under warranty you did send a new one. Unfortunately, the irons heating element stopped working after a year, which meant it was no longer under warranty. I was told I could send it back (my expense) and you would fix it (at my expense). Much cheaper to buy a new iron. Would not recommend to anyone. One star is too high a rating.Date published: 2018-04-25Rated 1 out of 5 by Sew Stephanie from On my 3rd replacement iron I really wanted to love this iron BUT unfortunately I have had no luck. Iron #1 - must have been dropped in shipping and was leaking (Oct 2017) Iron #2 - started leaking rust colored water on my fabric (Feb 2018) Iron #3 - after 2 weeks showing rust at the front foot (feb 2018) #Iron #4 - Oliso refused to refund my money so I think I will try and return this to a local retail store Buyer beware - you can only get your $$ back if you return it in 30 days. After that they will just send you a replacement. I used regular tap water in my irons and always emptied the reservoir at the end of each session. I also NEVER used starch which they say can cause the rust. I make quilts and just use the iron to press open seams and steam press fabric after washing. They did extend my warranty through April 2019. As of now I have not opened the 4th iron they sent. The iron gets really hot and does a great job I just cannot have rust transferred to my fabric/quilt top.Date published: 2018-04-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Mimi from Ironman I refer to this iron as my current husband! This is a very successful partnership that will probably last for years and years (yes, I have a history). We work together, I take good care of my Ironman and he makes housework a pleasure. Quilting is his hobby and he warms up to it every day, after all, he is very colorful, but colorblind. However he is multitalented and adjusts to all colors and textures. He did come with directions and I love him so much that I do everything he suggests. We are very happy together, forever I hope! Thank you for introducing us.

my steam burst only working part of the time, how do i cleanIf the tap water used in the tank has a lot of minerals, deposits from the tap water can build up from time-to-time, decreasing the amount of steam generated through the steam holes/vents. To clean the steam holes/vents, fill the water tank and heat the iron to the linen fabric setting. Once the iron is fully heated, unplug the iron and hold the iron by the handle over and parallel to the sink bottom. Press the steam burst button repeatedly until water begins to drip out of the soleplate. Be careful, as this can create a large amounts of steam. Sometimes if the steam holes/vents are severely clogged, it might take having to repeat these steps several times. Also to ensure optimal steam production over the life of the Oliso iron, the steam valve should be regularly cleared of accumulated debris and minerals. This is done by moving the steam selector back and forth from the "off" to the "max" steam settings several times. I hope this information successfully answers your questions. If the issue persists after repeating these steps, please contact us for further assistance on firstname.lastname@example.orgDate published: 2019-10-11
