Product Description

The new patented Smart Touch handle senses your hand and lowers the iron to the fabric. Simply let go of the handle and the patented Auto Lift system raises the iron, protecting the fabric and the soleplate. Scorch marks and heavy lifting are now a thing of the past. The Touch & Glide nonstick soleplate glides effortlessly over the fabric to make your ironing easier and take less time. The powerful steam burst works vertically or horizontally to remove stubborn wrinkles.

Sometimes it drips water.

WARNING: Unless you place this iron square and centered on your ironing board, it is likely to knock itself off your ironing board!

As for that over-working noisy motor that lifts the iron up, I doubt that it would last with heavy use.

I heard about this iron last year but didn't purchase it because it was $129 and I read a poor review on Amazon. Then a few months ago I read 2 great reviews from Gizmodo and Engadget so I stared to consider it again. In February my old trusty Kenmore iron died and a week or so later I read 2 very favorable magazine reviews (how old school) in Time Magazine's Feb. issue and Men's Health Magazine 2006 Tech Guide. I finally decided to go for it...and after over a month of use I am happy to say that they were right and this thing is AMAZING! I think I may be the first person to actually buy it, use it for over a month and then write a real review on Amazon. Believe me, I know I'm talking about an iron here but I've been ironing since I went to college and left my mom's home 15 years ago and I've never used an iron that does its job as stated and totally improves and speeds up my ironing chores while also being very safe.

I had owned and used my Kenmore Iron for almost 10 years and I loved it besides the fact it was very heavy and not so steamy the last few months. I had been considering the Black & Decker D2030 that everyone seems to love but after testing it I noticed the digital lcd screen was too hard to see and confusing unless I was at the perfect angle. Since most of the time I'm ironing quickly and half asleep in the morning I realized that feature could be a disaster so I kept researching and luckily picked up the right magazines in February. This Oliso iron does everything the D2030 can do but is just as easy to use and can do MUCH more. Seriously, the touch sensitive handle which causes the iron to raise up off my clothes and then lower back down with the touch of my hand is worth the $99 I spent alone and the best ironing idea since the iron was created!

This is one of those toys you buy and play with for about a day, take it out of the closet to show your friends, but isn't good for daily ironing. It's a pretty iron but it doesn't work. I bought one despite what some other folks thought about this iron, and now I regret it, I should have paid more careful attention to all the reviews! It is true about the leaking, dribbling out water, lifters knocking it off the ironing board, poor and inconsistant steam, cheap plastic construction, and non-gliding soleplate.

This is the nicest iron I've ever used. It seems very well made and sturdy. The blue see-through water reservoir gives it a very modern look. It glides really nicely on the fabric. The steam seems more consistent and stronger than other irons I've used in the past. The "steam burst" feature gives a very powerful blast of steam that is great for tough wrinkles. The Auto-Lift feature is really cool and slick. It made the task of ironing more fun...a smart, high-tech iron! I believe the auto-lift feature definitely improves the safety of ironing too. The Auto-Lift feature is my favorite part because it is something different that I never experienced before. It is nice to just push the iron to the side without having to stand it up vertically. I also really like the status light, the way it uses different colors and flashes to indicate the iron's status. I find this very useful because it lets me know exactly when the iron is hot enough to use...no more guessing.

I was hesitant to buy this iron as it had some bad reviews. I am a quilter and this has been a great iron so far. It doesn't tip easily and I get such a kick out of the elevator feet. Steam probably could be better, but for quilting it is fine. I would think for pants or tailoring probably not the best steam.

It is not noisy, and I have had great fun and amusement using it, just hard to not set it upright takes awhile to get use to that. It was worth it to me.

Why I purchased the Oliso iron:

I iron my clothes regularly. I am very particular about ironing my clothes. I have used many irons and finally got and loved my Rowenta DG-980 Expert Steam Generator, which I purchased 1-1/2 years ago from Amazon.

The Rowenta's power switch does not click on & off anymore and after I knocked it off the ironing table about 3 times, the steam button does not click right. But the iron still works, just the power keeps cutting off at the slightest shake. So I began to search for a cheaper alternative iron as I did not want to spend another $300 after only 1-1/2 years of use. Even if I were to send it off to get it fixed, I would need another good iron in the meantime.

About the Oliso experience:

I was very impressed by the Oliso TG-800 Touch & Glide Steam Iron's web site where they have a movie showing how it works. What caught my eye was that in that movie they show how difficult it is to knock this iron off the ironing board, which is how I broke my other iron.

The main feature of this iron:

The Oliso iron lifts off the surface about 3/4" automatically when you lift your hand off of it. You don't need to stand it up like other irons and thus the lesser chance of getting knocked off the table. When you touch the handle again, it lowers itself automatically. This is accomplished by a motorized unit which makes a sort of annoying noise every time you touch the handle or let it go.

When I got the iron my kids watched with amazement how this iron lifted itself off the table when I took my hands off it. I was also quite excited and could not wait to knock out the first pair of pants as I do under a minute with my Rowenta Steam Generator almost every day. Shirts take about 2 minutes.
