Anyone have an Oliso??

Crazy K | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

I am possibly looking for buy a new iron.  I have a Rowenta and have been very happy with it but the last time I used it, I thought it was spitting at me!  It may just need cleaning but it got me thinking about all the negative comments in the forum.  I have seen the cute iron that has feet on a sewing program.  Just wondered if anyone has experience with it.  The name is Oliso “Touch and Glide” and is sold through Nancy’s Notions.  The demise of one very good iron was when I accidentally bumped into the ironing board and sent the iron to the floor.  It leaked after that.  The iron with the little feet would be much harder to knock down.  Anyone???  Comments?? 

Happy Stitching……..

    I have this iron.  I bought it from the Home Shopping Network last December and I love it!  I had my doubts about the feet at first but that feature really comes in handy at times.  It's funny now, when I go to a sewing class and use their iron I place it on the board like I do with this one and it takes me a few seconds to realize their iron is not going to pop up.  I just love those little feet!  And so far so good, no problems and I use it almost every day!

      Thanks!  I just wondered if was really good.  Does it put out lots of steam?  Is it fairly heavy......seems that the heavier irons do better when ironing dress shirts, etc.  I use mine for pressing when I sew as well as ironing DH shirts, etc.  Do you press or iron.........or maybe both.

      Thanks!!!

        I use my iron for both pressing and ironing and I would say as to the weight that it is typical of any contemporary iron.  It can really put out the steam too, I usually keep the steam on low and it seems to be fine for anything from pressing darts to fusing interfacing.  I like this iron a lot.
