    Default Best iron for quilting projects?

    Would appreciate advice about what iron I should purchase for my quilting. Are the expensive ones (over $100) really that much better?

    I don't think so. I had an expensive Rowenta that leaked all the time. My Black and Decker from the hardware store worked better. I have a Sunbeam now that gets super hot. Also a Panasonic cordless. I love both.

    The Panasonic cordless iron is the way to go. This iron changed my life as much as the rotary cutter. I will never go back to a corded iron again.

    Not Rowena. Had two. They leak pretty bad after just a short time. Oliso is good if you can get it on sale. I have the blue one, paid $50, like it a lot.

    I have a Black & Decker that I've had for years and years. It works great for me.

    I love my Panasonic cordless. Purchased on the recommendation of so so many other forum members.

    I had a $200 Eurosteam iron that my mom gave me as a gift (purchased at a quilt show.) The thing stopped working as soon as the warranty was out, and it was way too expensive to fix. When they gave me the price to fix it, I told them to put it in the trash where it belonged. So No, the price of the iron does not make it better.

    I like my Oliso, but I am in love with my Panasonic Cordless. Ceramic plate and a nice red color, also comes with it's own case. Usually you can find them on sale around $99.

    I'm a Reliable Velocity iron girl all the way. Have had mine for seven years now, gets darn hot and NEVER spits. Worth every penny, and if it ever breaks down, I won't think twice about buying another one.

    The Panasonic cordless with the ceramic foot plate is fantastic. I also have the Rowena travel iron for classes. Both work well.
