    Default I just had to get it.

    O.K. I had finished watching the youtube on the Christmas gift ideas. It was oh, all right. Then it came. That darn iron. I need a new one. Actually I do. I go through so many and they don't last or they are supposed to last and they don't and I wanted one that would get me to where I need to go. I did some research and this iron is the pick for the best iron of 2019. I thought well my birthday is coming up, Thanksgiving is around the corner and then there is Christmas, soooo I ordered it with a couple other things (like that spray bottle). I just hit the order button, and oh my last order from MSQC was shipped yesterday.. I can't believe I am excited about getting an iron. It must be maturity, or something.

    I think it's adorable. If I hadn't gotten a new iron last year, I'd be ordering it.

    I liked it too but my Oliso is only 3 yrs old! Let us know if it exceeds expectations! I have the blue Oliso and I wish it had heavier steam but otherwise it's great

    Congratulations. I saw it and I'm trying to resist, hoping it comes on sale one day. My Oliso died last year, after 4 good years & unintentional abuse of being yanked and hitting the concrete floor too many times

    The colours would be perfect and blend with the colours in my room. Enjoy!

    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.

    It is tempting, to say the least, but I have a propensity to "knock" things over and my irons are the victim too many times. I have a Rowenta now that I am extremely pleased with. It too has hit the floor, but so far so good. I'd like to see some reviews too from those of you who have made the plunge.

    My Oliso (the blue one) died after about 4 years. The legs stopped working. Evidently there is a reset button but that didn't work either. I had the panasonic cordless and it lasted a whopping 14 months, one month after the warranty was up, and Panasonic told me to take a leap. It is now an expensive door stop because I still can't seem to throw it away. Anyway, I have been buying cheap black and decker, shark, and some others and they just don't iron with the intensity I need. They last for a while, die and I buy another one. I want an iron that is comfortable while ironing, and will do the job. I am tired of ironing the same piece 4 or 5 times because the cheap ones can't get out the wrinkles. I know it is an investment, and I do research before buying higher priced items, so I hope it lives up to those reviews.

    I have never been pleased with Rowentas, not thrilled with the Panasonic so I am using an old, old travel iron without steam. It gets plenty hot and I keep a starch and a water spray bottle handy if needed.

    I love my Oliso. I've had it for a number of years now. At one point, I did have trouble with it turning off or the feet wouldn't retract. Oliso has a great customer service. For $70, you return the defective iron and get a brand new one. Irons never seem to last forever and it is much cheaper than scrapping it and buying new.
