AOL - good one! "It's nice to stop and smell the...Best press?" I've been stitching blocks together - and doing my usual fretting about getting the corner triangles and seams to match. I think of you often while pinning as I use the method you taught me! Now I'll think of you and chuckle when I Best Press!

I love my Oliso for the same reason, Schnookie! I think it's really ergonomic for the arthur in my hands and wrists. I did have to have one replaced, though - it went up and down at will! Sometimes quite a few times in a row. I'd have my back to the ironing board, sitting at my sewing machine, and I'd hear that iron doing push-ups!! Sometimes as many as many as 16 of them!!  Very Happy

OMG, how did I miss this one lmao lmao lmao  my first Oliso did the same thing but not as many yours must have been one strong iron! I think I was told that it did that when the power would drop in our house...not sure if it was the real reason or if it just wanted to show off its strong arm! My tv has a mind of its own also, will shut off the cable, the audio and tv all at once and start to walk away then the audio starts in scares the bejeebees out of me at time!!

I used to have a Maytag cordless and loved it but the teflon died and they don't make them any more. Been drooling over the Panosonic. Costs $100.

I have two big Rowentas one never out of box yet plus one small travel Rowenta and love them. Never have had a bit of trouble with them.

I'm thinking the Oliso would be a good think to ask for for Christmas. DH likes me to ask for something specific so he doesn't have to think.

I edited this just a bit, but this is what I do too Mary Ann.  

My iron is a black and decker steam iron.   But I use a spray bottle.   When I do use my steam iron I always make sure I have distilled  water in it...... not sure if that has anything to do with rust problems or not, but can say I haven't had that problem using distilled water.

My iron plugs in, its blue and white and it has a flat side that gets hot, I use the flat side to squish my seams and repel cat invasions, sometimes I dream of using that side to 're-educate' DH. I dont give mine any water because then, just like an alpaca, it spits at me. It has no name

Mine is a Black and Decker because that's what DH bought when my lovely Rowena was mysteriously broken. I use separate spray.

Spitting irons remind me of a family story, I'll tell part of it:
Great Grandmother, who was a Principal Teacher in Bakersfield, CA, had a Chinese 'houseboy'. Those paragons kept house, cooked, tended the garden, etc. It was the custom of houseboys to take a giant mouthful of water and spray it over the laundry before ironing with a sad iron. This gem of a houseboy suddenly departed one day after years of service, being replaced by a cousin. Hours later, Great Grandfather was told that the houseboy was wanted for 273 murders as a tong hit man. Great grandmother insisted that it could not possibly be true and besides, he was the best houseboy she'd ever met.
