My 25yr old Black & Decker cheapo model died about 4 months ago (it was a wedding gift and was a trooper. We had a nice funeral for her. ), and since I'm more into sewing and using an iron more I ended up going with a Rowenta. Didn't get top of the line but didn't get bottom either and I love it. Works like a dream, great steam control, no leaking issues and nice and light compared to my old one. I just wish I knew about MassDrop sooner and my old one lasted a little bit longer. I would have loved to have had this iron because I really wanted it but couldn't spend that kind of money at that time and I needed one. I can't justify buying a new one after barely 4 months.

Hi Blueturtle! That is so funny you has a little funeral for your loyal iron. I can't believe it lasted so long! I had a B&D but it broke in only a few months. I have another low-priced model now, bit I can't wait to upgrade to the Oliso. Quilters really put a lot of strain on their irons, so its no wonder so many of them end up failing. Oliso has a warranty, plus the Pro is designed especially for quilters, so I'm assuming the chances of it failing are low. Plus, my wrists are going to be really happy using the iTouch feature instead of having to lift the iron up and down.
