    As far as I know the turquoise is the old model, not made any more, and it is not 360 but has a pointed end and a blunt end like a normal iron. The newer 360 also comes in a cord version, cheaper but you still have a cord so it's not as free moving. The 360 comes in colors other than gray.

    Also that turquoise one has the iron tip more exposed when in the holder, I suppose if placed in the wrong spot one could bump it and get burned. I've never heard of anyone doing that, but I think the new one is a smidge safer that way. Also wouldn't be surprised if they come out with a new model soon since this has been on sale so much recently.

    The turquois one is still available on QVC. I happened to, um, mention it to my DH around the first of December.

    I bought the Panasonic cordless and love it when its on - but it seems like it shuts off really quick. Not the best scenario for the sew-iron-sew-iron procedure. Seems like I'm always waiting for it to heat back up. I just bought an pretty purple Oliso from Joann's on a really good sale. If I ever get organized enough to have an iron right next to my sewing machine/cutting board I think the Panasonic will work great.

    I like the Panasonic for some things. I find it shuts off to fast too like Chey said. I like my Sunbeam. It gets hot fast and stays hot long.

    I have the Panasonic 360. I like it. It cycles off pretty quickly, but also heats up quickly. I pressed a Queen size quilt top today and it was great to not have the cord to deal with.

    I also have the Panasonic cordless 360. I like it MUCH better than my previous irons (Black & Decker & Rowenta, may they RIP). I am very happy with this iron and recommend it. It doesn't spit and there is no cord to get in the way.

    The turquoise one is also still available at amazon also. I have never had an issue with it and love. love , LOVE it. I prefer this to the 360 as it is the shape of a conventional iron rather then pointed at each end.

    I highly recommend Black & Decker irons... They are reliable, do a great job, are not too big or heavy, and they don't cost a lot. They are a very good deal... The B&D iron does everything a good iron needs to do, at a reasonable price...
