A Decision Has Been Made

Took me long enough!  For some reason it was a super tough decision on which iron to invest in.  Did I want to go with my favorite and risk the same fate as usual?  Or should I branch out and try something different?  

In my original post My Iron Is Incontinent ~ The Leaky Truth I received so many comments, suggestions and recommendations!  Thank you all for taking the time to respond!  It seems many of us have had the dreaded leaks!  Andy many of us are looking for a killer good iron too!

I put it off as long as I could.  Fought through more and more drips and puddles until I couldn't take it anymore!  I went with the Oliso Smart Iron.  My sister (who I look up to and trust wholeheartedly) suggested the Oliso.  

You really can't go wrong with pink either.  Plus, why not have a fun and pretty iron? They should make them in lime green!  IMO!

The big reveal!  ... nestled all snug in its bed... while visions of wrinkles danced in its head...

Getting ready to take this baby for a spin!

Let's hope this is true Oliso!  I have registered this iron just in case I need to use the warranty!  To be honest I have only burned my ironing board cover, never fabric or clothing. That wasn't a factor in my decision for getting this iron.  

Why did I choose this iron.  I wanted good (great) steam.  I wanted a higher quality iron (I hope) that will last a long time.  It is ergonomic, rapid heating, three steam settings, one pass pressing, very long cord and it has the ITouch technology.  Which is a little weird getting use to! Who leaves their irons flat after pressing... However, I do kind of like it! The good thing is if you don't want to use that technology you can disable it very easily.   

My test.  It seems to work pretty good!  I don't want to iron and iron until the wrinkles go away.  And I didn't have to with this iron!  YAY!  

The only thing I am really on the fence about with this iron is the soleplate.  I am so use to my old Iron gliding over the fabric with a stainless steel soleplate.  The Oliso has what they call a beadblast chromium finish.  I really feels different when ironing.  I'm not saying I hate it, just like the the ITouch technology it will take some getting use to. 

Bye~Bye old iron.  There's a new sheriff in town!


  1. Cute one! And works well too. Have fun!

    1. So far so good! Thank you for the recommendation!

  3. My iron is falling apart but I wont let it go. I need one bad. I had to read this. I love this iron and am going to search for it right now. Its cute in pink, and imo it should come in lime too :-)
