Rated 4 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied I have had my Olisio for about 3 years and am very satisfied. I am a quilter and use this iron exclusively. I researched quite a bit before purchasing and found that there were actually some mixed reviews but I purchased and am very glad I did. The Smart technology of not having to set the iron up is so very helpful. I found that the iron does not take long at all to heat back up after it goes into cool mode which is nice also. Overall, I am very satisfied and actually recommended that my sister get one when she was ready to purchase a new iron. She has had hers for a couple of months and is very satisfied with her iron as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied I've only had my Olisio 1600 for 5 months, but compared to the many irons I've purchased over the years, this iron gives me the same experience as the old irons with the fabric on the cord!!! I iron all of my clothes, including t-shirts and jogging suits and pajamas. And this iron handles all types of materials well. I'm just learning to sew, and it's great for my projects. The 30 minute shut off is wonderful. The iTouch feature is an added bonus. It gives great steam. Works well with no steam. And I love the fact you can use tap water!!! The only drawback is the price, but you really can't put a fair price on quality!!! I love it though!!!

my steam burst only working part of the time, how do i clean

Asked by: tomw
If 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 customerservice@oliso.com

You reference the 30 minute auto shut off option. Does this mean it will not shut off for 30 minutes in the horizontal position as long as it is moving? Frustrated with current iron that shuts off every 30 sec. when ironing yardage.

Asked by: Amy Lou
Hello Amy, 30 mins auto shut off means the iron if not touched for 30 mins or its not been used, the it will shut off automatically, but again when you touch the iron, it will heat up again. Thanks Kevin

After reading your reviews, Have you rewritten the warranty on specifically the TG1600. I was a satisfied Oliso owner and had experienced the same frustrations of those that wrote reviews, i.e. not staying hot enough and spitting on my quilts.

Asked by: Marie67
We can relate and understand your frustration when an expensive electrical product does not last as long as you expected. But with that said, it's an electrical appliance and it's going to give out at some point depending on the usage. Since Nov 2018 we have been working with our engineers to resolve many of the common issues that make an iron burn out. We are improving parts and changing the material of those parts so they last a lot longer under extreme use. We will also be launching a new page on the oliso website to explain the "do's and don'ts" of ironing because we have notice there are a lot of misunderstanding out there in the ironing world. For example, people have been told for years to put distilled water in their irons when in fact distilled water is the worst type of water you can use. The reason is there are no minerals in distilled water so the distilled water will pull minerals from the rubber seals causing the iron to leak. Another example is, if you press the steam button 10 times in a row we do not care if you have a $3000 iron the iron will leak. The reason is that you are flooding the soleplate of the iron with cold water causing the plate to cool down and not turn the water into steam and the water has to go somewhere. We are updating our warranties so any of the oliso "PRO" products will come with a three year warranty. Also we have lowered our repair fee from $69.99 to $29.99. We hope we were able to answer your questions and concerns about buying another oliso iron. Thank you

Hi! I have the Oslio Pro. I accidentally ironed iron-on interfacing on the sticky side. I got some off by ironing over a towel but there is still some there and it turned brown from using it again. What should I use to clean it?

Asked by: Lori718
We actually have a few tricks that might work. The first one is get the iron hot. Then cut a brown paper bag so it can lay flat. Then carefully place the iron on the paper bag and move the iron back and forth, this should help remove the "gunk". If this does not work please go to a Joann Fabric or Bed Bath store and ask them for soleplate cleaner and follow those instructions. We hope one of these tricks work. Thank you

Do I need to use purified water or is tap water ok for the iron? If tap water is acceptable, will the iron drip because of a mineral buildup?

Asked by: Diane
The oliso smart iron requires tap water or bottled spring water, never 100% distilled water. This is because distilled water is so pure that it has the ability to remove minerals from the metals inside the iron, causing premature leakage.

I was wondering about water to use in iron. Iron seems to spurt water and run out so should I use distilled water?

Asked by: Smiley
Sorry for the extreme delay in responding to your question. It somehow got overlooked. To answer your question, as with all irons, the water tank should be emptied after every use. This will ensure a clean water tank for every new ironing session. Additionally, the oliso smart iron requires tap water or bottled spring water, never 100% distilled water. This is because distilled water is so pure that it has the ability to remove minerals from the metals inside the iron, causing premature leakage. Thank you
