I had the pleasure of reviewing the Oliso Smart Iron Model TG1600 Limited Pink Edition recently. I have to tell you all that I enjoy ironing – yes I know I must be crazy but I actually do like to iron clothes. Most mom’s today do not even own an iron but I am one of those people who feel my family is a reflection on me and if they go out of the house wrinkled then it’s my fault. You may not agree but this is my personal feeling and has been for a long time. I once had someone tell me I was there hero because I took great pains to iron my son’s play clothes from a very young age. It’s just something I learned at an early age from my Mom and I continue ironing each week for my husband and I.
I have used a steamer type iron for years. Unfortunately the company no longer manufacturers the product I have now and I started to get worried because this thing is on it’s last leg. I tried so many “steam” irons over the years from the very inexpensive to the very expensive and nothing really satisfied my needs. Most do not have enough steam power to really take the wrinkles out of cotton fabrics which are the hardest to iron. Professional steamers are very expensive and they require storage space in a closet or some place that they can be left out as most are pretty large. I don’t have that type of space and really didn’t want to spend a small fortune on a professional steamer.
So I am always on the hunt for a new steamer/iron that will do as good of a job as a professional steamer and I think I have finally found it in my new Oliso Smart Iron.
I honestly had never heard of this brand before but after doing my research I was so impressed with the products they make I will be a life-long customer of Oliso.
The Oliso TG1600 has:
- 1800 watts of power (which after doing my research is more than any other steam iron on the market today)
- a safety 30-minute extended auto-shut off feature (which is a wonderful safety feature because we have all left the iron on at one time or another I know I have)
- a extra-large 12.7 ounce side fill tank (which I love since it annoys me when I have to stop and refill the tank)
- a beadblast stainless steel soleplate (which is wonderful for easy-glide ironing)
- a flat pressing surface
- a detailer tip to get around buttons and make perfect pleats (or for anyone who sews this is a wonderful feature to help you get the most precise press on your garments as you sew)
- and a 12-foot cord for full range of motion (which I love – no restrictions on how far you can get from the electric plug)
This iron has some amazing features that no other iron on the market today can claim. My favorite being the “scorchguard” feature. You have to see it to believe it. This amazing smart technology, with one touch, lowers the iron to the garment ready to work. Take your hand off and the patented scorchguards and it automatically lifts the iron off the board preventing scorches, burns, and tipping.from the down position (touching your clothing) to an elevated position when you release your hand from the iron.
Use your Oliso TG1600 in the upright position as a garment steamer, it can handle this job with ease.
