Oliso® Pro™ TG1600 Smart Iron (yellow) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 1433.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Oliso Smart iron! I have had my Oliso iron for about 5 years now. It is a high quality product. I use this iron mainly for sewing. The auto up/down feature is wonderful; it makes pressing my projects go very quickly and no chance of burning my fabric. The Oliso gives a ton of steam so it takes out wrinkles beautifully. It also steams standing up, which makes it great for removing wrinkles from items you can't press (fancy dresses, hanging curtains, etc.). Also, the cord is nice and long adding to location flexibility, esp. for big projects (quilts, draperies, etc.). I absolutely love this iron.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The long cord is great I splurged for this fancy iron specifically because it has an extra long cord. The auto hands - off feature want anything I needed or wanted, but it's pretty neat. I have two little kids that run around a lot, and I often take my hand off the iron while ironing, to gesture to my kids or help them with something. With the auto -lift, I don't worry about burning anything! However, the legs that pop down when the iron lifts tend to leave marks in the freshly ironed fabric, so I need to pass over that area again to remove the indents from the legs. That's slightly annoying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from See below I am not sure whether the model I selected is the correct one as I no longer have the iron. I purchased it at a sewing retreat in Beaver Dam, WI when it was first introduced. I was not impressed with the iron; it leaked water and left water stains on silk garments. I have communicated this previously to other Oliso representatives at shows who requested I contact them. I did not, I am the customer and do not feel it my place to call a company with a faulty product I purchased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved it at first but I am disappointed I loved my Olisio at the beginning because of the high heat, great steam and how long it stayed on. All are a plus when you are a quitter. However: After the warranty ended my Olisio started to leak very badly when in steam mode. Now it won’t even heat up. I have had cheap irons last longer. When I contacted the company I was basically told that was my problem. I am guessing this review will be deleted. But it’s true and I have friends who have had similar experiences with Olisio

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyed so far... I have had my iron now for a few weeks. I have really enjoyed it! Some of my favorite features are how quickly it heats up and stays warm for 30 minutes without shutting off. I love the steam feature. It is powerful and effective on wrinkles and it’s simple to use. My biggest struggle is with the automatic deployment of the foot. Several times I have been in mid ironing and the foot deployed snagging or catching onto the material and yanking it. I was afraid it would run a hole in it. I am still getting accompanied with the iron, but really love it! I would recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this iron I spend the last 8 yrs using other brands and it was totally a mistake. I never thought this iron worse the money and though it was only a “trendy brand“. Last month my old iron broke and when I was searching for a new model I decided give a chance for Oliso. First the package and manuals are really practical and easy, I admire that. The lift thing is pretty cool. The weight of the iron is just perfect for easily press the fabrics and the bottom design is awesome for crip edges, right angles and also curves, I’m a quilter and is the best iron I ever had for my projects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best iron ever I've had my oliso pink iron for about a year now. I'm an active quilter so I use it t a lot. This is the best iron ever. Since it lifts itself off the surface when not in use it never burns my fabric. It heats up quick. And turns itself off when inactive. The long cord is great. The only issue I've had is one incident of leaking and that was my fault because I did not empty the water reservoir like I should have and the iron set for about 2 weeks. The price is high but I have never used an iron so much. Totally worth it. I originally got the blue one. But gave that one to my father who also quilts and upgraded myself to the pink one. Btw my dad LOVES his blue oliso iron. He says it is the best iron he has ever used.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the price I had trouble with it from the start. I had excellent help from the service people but the problem continued to plague me. The last two years I could only use it without the steam function.I do love the feature of being able to lay it flat on the ironing board but I finally decided it wasn't worth the frustration and I sure wasn't going to buy another one without a guarantee that the leaking, overheating, etc. problems had been addressed and corrected. I bought a different iron and have gotten used to standing the iron on end and the Oliso Pro problems are no more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this iron but it frustrates me!! I broke down and came up with the money to buy this iron because I love it’s features and how well it presses. However, every time I use it, after a short period of time, the legs lock out and won’t rise up when you lift the iron to press making it unusable. I realize I should have contacted you prior to this survey, but it is an issue that needs to be addressed. The quilt shop where I shop and sew has an Oliso that we use and it has the same problem from time to time, but resolves itself after unplugging and replugging. Mine does not and on my income this has not been a great purchase for me. I still have a strong desire to use an Oliso, just wish I had better performance. Normally I would highly recommend this iron.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It dances. I do love my iron. And I have had it for several years. With-in a year of purchase it started dancing or bouncing and I have no idea why. When I would set it done it go go up on its feet and then go up and down several more times. When I would pick it up to use it the feet would not go down preventing its use. It doesn’t happen very often but when it does I have to completely turn it off and unplug it. Let it set in time out fir a while. When I start it back up it is the Oliso I know and love again. This has happened probably 10 it less times since I purchased it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Iron I have ever owned !!! Love the way you can just set it flat and it automatically pops up. It makes ironing so much easier. Great for sewing or quilting, it really flattening those seams. I would love to buy the pink one, I am a 21 year Breast Cancer survivor this May, but my husband would disown me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I had my iron for a few months and had to send it in because it malfunctioned and would not always stand up after ironing. It seemed like it became a potential fire hazard. Also after I sent it in it was several months before I got it back and again never worked quite right.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in quality of this iron. I have gone through two Oliso (yellow) irons. The first one was defective, water leaking/spotting, and the second one, also yellow, stopped going down and would not heat up. Had that one for 14 months. I was fortunate that the first one was replaced through the quilt shop where I purchased. There were others, probably from the same shipment, that had similar issues. However, it did take one year to replace through her distributor. And Oliso irons in Canada are much more expensive than in the states. I would have had to pay to have it fixed and shipping charges were very expensive. I do like some of the features this iron has, I used it for quilting, used a different brand for my regular ironing. My less expensive irons have lasted a lot longer. This iron is great for quilting but needs to go back to the drawing board.
Date published: 2018-08-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best iron I’ve ever had! For a long time I didn’t think I’d be interested in an iron that raised up like the Oliso does. Just didn’t see any advantage to it. That is, until I had to use one at a sewing class. I was so impressed. It has a nice weight, plenty of steam, gets good and hot and handles very well. The raising up feature is only the beginning of the nice features. So, then and there I made up my mind to get one for myself. It takes a little getting used to, with the raising up and all, but you adjust to it very quickly. I’m very happy with it and use it every day in my quilting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like this iron, BUT!! I do like this iron but am disappointed in the steam feature. There are not enough steam vents in the soleplate and the steam vents are only on the outside edge of the soleplate and some are not actually holes at all, just indentations that looks like there should be a steam vent there. There are absolutely no steam vents in the middle at all. Also, I don,t like draining the water holder of excess water when I am finished using the iron. I usually use the spray button to get rid of excess water. You have to let it cool completely or you can burn yourself very easily. Overall, I do like this iron but think it is over priced. I said I would recommend this product to a friend but am not sure if I actually would or not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the best irons I’ve owned. I’ve owned 2 Rowenta irons and was so unimpressed by the second iron - my first lasted Rowenta 10 years, but my second only lasted 5 - giving me reason to switch & try this highly recommended iron. I’ve had it for a year and am still happy. However, my only dissatisfaction is the built in sprayer & steamer. Both functions could be more forceful in dispensing water (& should be, for how expensive this iron is!) those functions alone would give me pause if I will replace my current iron with another Oliso when the time comes - hopefully not for at least 9 years.
Date published: 2018-04-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overpriced for what it is. . . While this iron produces fairly good steam, it is not as much as I'd like for really heavy fabrics & linen. It is mildly awkward at first to have to maintain contact with the handle all the time you want heat or steam, to keep it in contact with fabric. However the automatic pop-up and safety shutoff are good features, as is the extra long cord. I've previously had steam generator type irons for about the same or slightly more price, and moved to this one due to their short lives. So hoping that this will "live" longer and be more reliable. So far so good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I saw this product at vendor market. I was able to purchase one at a later date. Unfortunately it has been a disappointment. The auto off feature is good. It steams moderately well The most prized feature however has caused a great deal of frustration. It has malfunctioned several times. When it does work, and it is locked to a closed position, the wedge get caught on the everything, folds the fabric back or gathers it up and wrinkles it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Joy to Use! My husband bought me this iron 3 years ago and took flak from friends for buying his wife an iron for Christmas. HE knew better! The Oliso Pro is the best iron I've owned: it heats up quickly, is not overly heavy, has a 30-minute timer before it turns off, and has a LONG, convenient power cord. Oh, and it uses tap water!! That, and it sits rather than stands on the ironing board, so its low center of gravity makes it less likely to fall off the ironing board if the board is bumped. Woo Hoo! All that, and it does an excellent job of ironing. I LOVE my Oliso!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great while it lasted! I really loved this iron for the first year! It had exactly what I wanted in an iron and for my quilting. Since I quilt every single day, I decided to invest a good chunk of change in an iron. Great steam, hot and pressing was perfect. Eventually it started to leak and in the end the plastic started to erode along the bottom. Literally cracking off! My hope was it would last for years and years, instead it failed me. One day I may take the plunge again because it really was great while it lasted. If you don't use it day in and day out...it's great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Started going SOUTH after 2 yrs! At about the two year mark my iron started acting up. The lift from when setting it down began getting sluggish...I called company, went thru some trouble shooting measures and it solved the problem for a couple uses. Latest issue is that is doesn't shut off! I literally have to plug/unplug from the wall. This is the most expensive iron I've ever purchased. Very disappointed that it is already at end of it's life!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Many things to love I’ve had this iron for maybe a year now. I bought it for my machine quilting hobby. I love that it is more stable sitting on my ironing board in the raised flat position than on its end. I love the smart feature of it raising and lowering as I grab the handle. However, I don’t feel it gets as hot as I would like/need it to. I have to leave it on a spot longer than necessary compared to other much cheaper irons I’ve owned to get a good press. Or I have to go over areas again if I moved on too quickly. Not a deal breaker, but I wish it got hotter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved it when it worked The one I purchased only worked about 3 months. It started 'spitting' and then wouldn't rise from the down position
Date published: 2018-04-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from What is the highest temperature the TG1600 reaches I like the iron, but wish I could get a hotter iron. I have owned it for a few years. I end up having to use spray starch. I feel it would be nice if it could get hotter. Partly because I like to embroider on linen which is harder to get smooth. I do like the long cord and the feature which enables it to pop up. If anyone knows what the highest temperature it will reach is - I would like to know.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointed! I was so eager to love this iron! From the nice point on the plate to the lift when standing, I was a happy quilter. I made sure I did everything they recommended you do - empty after use, clean the ironing plate etc.. Yet it's just over a year old & it's stopped lifting! C'mon! For the price you pay for this iron it should iron for you, not stop working in 12 months! For the amount of time it was working I loved everything about it. Now what? Use it as a door stop? I am very sad. I really, really wanted this iron & it turned out to be a dud.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not last long Iron would not heat and steam did not work. Iron leaked and it was difficult to empty water tank.
Date published: 2018-04-28
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frustrating to Use I really wanted to love this iron but it has its issues. The ejection bit on the face plate will appear ever so slightly even when I have this option turned off and it scrunches up my fabric that I’m trying to smoothly press out. This happens numerous times and I’ll switch the on/off button continuously until it stops protruding. When the green flashing light indicates the iron has reached the temperature that’s been set, it still is not very hot and takes a long time for the steam to start up. For the price I paid I regret this purchase.
Date published: 2018-04-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for quilting I love the up/down feature for quilting. This is why I bought it. A lot of flat seams tiburon. Doesn’t tip over when you bump the ironing board/table. Like that the auto off is a little longer than some irons. It doesn’t work as good for less flat ironing such as men’s shirts where you have to pick it up and move it to a different angle around a collar for example. A lot of up/down of the feet when you don’t need it. It has spoiled me...when I use another iron, I have to be careful, because my inclination is to leave it laying down! Oops!
Date published: 2018-04-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Dissapointment Not only did this iron stop heating, the raise/lower function got stuck in the raise position so it was unusable. All this happened within 6 months of purchase. When I tried to get A new one, I was told I had to pay to ship it to the company and to have a new one sent to me. Very disappointed! I teach quilting classes and sell quilting notions and I will never stock one of these products.
