    Default Oliso

    I purchased an Oliso iron about 18 months ago from M*. Last week it stopped lifting, and the "feet" only went in part way so I could not even use it the regular way. I contacted the Oliso company for trouble shooting and together we were not able to get it working. I was sad, since it was no longer under warranty. I must say the company was excellent, offered me a brand new one for only a few $$$$. What an excellent company to do business with! They answered e-mails very quickly, called to help with trouble shooting and were just a pleasure to work with. Kudos Oliso for excellent customer service.

    The same thing happened to mine and I was able to get a brand new replacement for $60-$70? I believe. It was well worth it. They were very good to deal with.

    Good to know! I had trouble with mine and we messed with it and got it working again but I feel like I’m on borrowed time.

    I love my old B&D. Like a Timex, it keeps on ticking.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    I am going to knock on wood here!!!...I have an Oliso that my DH bought me 2 years ago. So far So good! I do love it, but I think the steam output could be better? The one thing I know is that there is a switch on the underside of the handle that will either shut the feet off or on. Just wondering if those who have problems with the feet not coming down have checked that??? Just askin' cause it happened to me.

    Auntstuff,, I agree about the old B & D. They were awesome irons. Not sure what happened to mine, then I went to a Rowenta (loved it) and DH bought me the Oliso. I still have my Rowenta, but think the B&D was dropped and didn't keep on tickin'

    Knock on wood also. Bought ours in 2015 when DH & I started quilting, with no problems. I know that any iron being used as much as ours, it's all good.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    I wore my first one out. lol, silly thing loved to do jumping jacks and then it would cut itself off. I think it was trying to go on strike, but it was too close to Christmas for that tactic to work. My MIL and Mike pooled their Christmas money and bought me a new one!

    My DD bought me one a couple of birthdays ago. I'm not sold on it compared to my Rowenta. It leaks .

    Auntstuff ~ I'm with you. I can't justify spending that much money on an iron. I have an old faithful Black & Decker as well. It's my 2nd one. If it wears out, I'll buy another one.

    I have a Panasonic cordless that I love. I got a good price of around $50 for it on Amazon a few years ago. I know it's at least 5 years because I remember using it to help with making quilt sandwiches on the floor. I would use it to set the 505 spray on a Queen Size quilt. I would press a quarter of the 90" X 108" quilt before putting it back on the recharge base. I bought my long arm 4 years ago. I do not have fond memories of floor basting!
