I've been fighting with cheap irons for way too long. I love my new Oliso TG 1600. No more sputtering water and scorching! I am a quilter so I iron daily and for hours and this iron was worth the investment. It stays hot for 30 minutes so I don't have to wait for it to heat up if I'm at the machine for a few minutes when other irons would shut off, then I'd have to wait for it to heat up.
