Oliso Pro Smart Iron iTouch (TG1100 for Australia and NZ)
Fed Up with Scorching you project when you get interrupted?
Finally...an iron that's been invented especially for the quilter
who has way too many things going on at once!
So you LOVE to sew - and you are addicted to making quilts.
The trouble is un-interrupted time dedicated just for sewing almost doesn't exist.
I mean, how often do YOU get called away when you're working on something...?
Maybe to help with homework, to wipe a spill or a bleeding nose.......
Meanwhile, the phone won't stop ringing, and there's someone at the door too......
Perhaps your oven decided to 'ding' at the same time (quick, rescue your baking NOW), and the dog just pulled down the washing. Again.
And by the time you got back, you realised that you've left the iron facing DOWN and it has burnt through the new ironing board cover, along with your fabric!!!!!
Yes, there is NOTHING more frustrating than having to deal with all the life's little disruptions AND worrying about the HOT iron.... Has it been left ON...? Was it left in a safe position....??
Phew, you're frazzled and flustered already. BEFORE you even get much (or any) sewing done!
If You Can Relate to this, then Read on....
Do you feel like Inspector Gadget, without the gadgets?
Until you figure out a way to multi-task like a pro - wouldn't it be great if someone JUST invents an iron with YOUR day in mind??
Picture this: while you leave your project on the ironing board to attend to the latest "catastrophe" around you...
Having an iron that that will automatically lift up and keep itself from burning your fabric (or house) down.
What would it be like to NEVER have to worry about leaving you iron on, Ever Again?
What if your iron Remembers to Lift itself Up,so you don't have to?
"Best iron ever! I love everything about my Oliso. It is perfect.
When you take your hand off the handle, it lifts off the fabric. I do not have to stand it up.
It heats up fast. Glides easily. The steaming feature is great. Love the fact that you can use tap water. It also has a cut off feature that I love.
One of the most unique features to this iron is the front tip of the iron.
The tip is split so you can actually iron the top and bottom of the fabric at the same time. This feature is perfect for collars, edges, and sleeves. It just adds a finished look to the garment.
I am absolutely thrilled that Oliso thought of everything you need in an iron - I wish I'd bought one earlier!"
- Rebecca, a Happy Customer
Often the hard part is to come up with exactly the right gadget that will take away all your worries.
Formally trained as a Fashion / Textile Designer - now a Quilter & Patchwork Teacher - I have spent the last 10 years teaching others and sharing the joy of sewing.
First, let me share a little confession...
Just like you, I never seem to be able to have enough time for sewing. And when I do, I can't tell the world to stop needing me - and for some reason, they do - always when I've just settled into my little sewing session!
After several attempts (and LOTS of interruptions) I was feeling rather fed-up with almost scorched my block while I managed to leave it down when I had to answer the door (or the phone, or both)! I know, it's embarrasing that I'm doing this myself.... when I should know better.
This means I can honestly say I know your pain.
Well, the long and the short was that I simply did NOT want to burn the house down, so I went and found myself a solution. And the rest, as they said, was history :-)
So this is the gadget I actually use myself.
And I will share my secret with you.....
The Best Kept Secrect for the Multi-Tasking Quilter is Oliso Smart Iron!
"I'm a grandma, so I've owned a lot of irons in my life, including three that I bought in the last year since I started quilting, (trying to find one I liked) but this is by far the best iron I've ever tried.
The bottom of the iron is very smooth and glides across the fabric. It has a super long cord, which is nice. The fill tank is on the side, so it's easy to get to in order to fill or empty. The select button for the heat is so easy to turn, not like some irons I've had. There is a slight click as you turn, so you know you have it on the setting you want.
It has different settings for steam. It has the blast of steam feature, and it DOES blast! It took out out natural folds in my quilting fabric right away.
But by far the best feature and the one that makes it worth every penny is that you never have to change the position of the iron from horizontal.
You never have to stand it on its heel. You simply release your hand from the handle and like magic, this iron has little feet that raise it off the fabric automatically.
Put your hand back on the handle and it instantly lowers for ironing. I started and stopped many, many times while I sew, and this feature worked without a hitch, quickly and smoothly.
It's not an overly heavy iron either, as I was expecting, but if does feel very solid and well made. It heats up quickly, and has an indicator light to tell you when the iron is ready to use, and it does not automatically shut off unless it's been idle for eight minutes, then takes one minute to reheat, which is great when you are sewing and quilting.
My sister is also a quilter, and she's asking her husband for this iron for Christmas. She said she never thought she would want an iron for a Christmas present, but LOVES this one (and she's not having mine).
You won't go wrong ordering this iron. I have no complaints. And the yellow is very cute. Having a cute iron is always a good thing in my book. Get one!"
- Catherine, a Happy Customer
What the heck is a SMART iron?
- Lynn Holland, Planet Patchwork
You know how we've always been taught to tilt your iron up at 90 degrees EACH time you stop, and NEVER face the hot sole plate down? Well, that's not longer relevant.
Because when the Oliso’s microchip senses that your hand has left the handle, its auto-lift feature pops it up off the fabric and board surface, that means the hot surface is NOT in direct contact with anything. How good is that?
Oliso steam iron is the ONLY iron with feet - Yes, FEET.
That's why it is able to lift and lower itself automatically.
Let's see what you get...
When not in use, the iron rests, soleplate parallel to the ironing board, on two heat-resistant stilts. When the handle is grasped (or touched), sensors inside the handle make the stilts retreat into the soleplate, letting the iron descend and the soleplate return to being in contact with the fabric.
The technology eliminates the need to constantly lift the iron and rock it back to rest on an unstable end, and this make ergonomical sense - because your wrist is no longer being use for continuous lifting and tilting!
When your hand hand isn’t touching the iron, the hot soleplate is lifted by about 2 cm off the fabric to avoid scorching (safer still, there IS an automatic shutoff system).
The lifters also prevent the iron from slipping off your ironing board (should it accidentally gets bumped); at a tilt of up to 25 degrees, the popped-up iron will stay put.
And because the hot surface stays face down there is no danger of the cat (or the kids) brushing up against it. How cool is that?!
Check out these Awesome Features....
Patented iTouch technology & Scorchguards™ lift with the touch of your hand and lower when you’ve stopped ironing, preventing burns, scorching and tipping. No need to worry about leaving your iron down!
Ergonomic: No more repetitive lifting; iron levitate above the fabric and lowers with the simple touch of your hand. That means NO more wrist strain or RSI, and NO Pain!
For additional safety, there is an 8-minute Auto-Shut Off. And it shuts off in 30 seconds if it's tipped over. Can't beat that for peace-of-mind!
Strategically placed steam holes - around the outer edge of the soleplate - to avoid direct, excessive steam which can stretch and distort the fabric. Perfect for patchworks!
Specially formulated beadblast stainless steel soleplate to retain heat, resist scratches and give you an unparalleled glide over your fabric. Which makes ironing a breeze!
Oliso's extra flat pressing area eliminates dimple impressions in fabric so you don't have to keep going back over the same area!
Extra large 376 ml (12.7 oz) water tank so you have plenty of steam time before the need to refill. And refill is easy with a large side opening too!
With 2400 watts, your Olso iron heats up quickly and stays hot. Nothing like having extra ironing power at your finger tips!
Extra Long 3.7 m cord with a 360 degrees pivot for full range of motion - you'll enjoy full freedom of ironing at different angles and never feel tied up again!
Like a lot of steam? For a domestic iorn, Oliso provides powerful vertical and horizontal steam to help you remove the toughest wrinkles.
This is the ONLY official Australian version, with the correct plug included. Approval number: N30999
BONUS Feature: Pointed Detailer Tip to help you creates crisp pleats, pockets, cuffs and collars. Great for tight corners and hard-to-reach areas!

"This has to be the Rolls Royce of steam irons, it is easy to use and give great results.You get 3 levels of steam, low, medium, and high, plus off.
Many manufatures claim to have steam irons that don't drip or spit, many seem to fall shot. I don't know how Oliso did it but their's is not an empty promise.
Not only does the iron lift when you remove your hand from the handle, it shuts off the steam as well.
It also is able to steam in the vertical position to steam wrinkles out of such things as curtains or clothing. The steam burst button causes the iron to shoot out a cloud of steam. Because of this great steaming capability, I've never had to use the spray button yet.
The lifting mechanism is truely ingenious, release the handle and the legs lift it off the fabric or ironing board in about 1 second thus making it impossible to scorch or burn your fabric or clothing.
Not only that, but for those of us with arthritis or who have difficulty lifting an iron to set it on it's heel, the Oliso irons are a dream come true.
Because of the lifting mechanism, the only time you need to lift it is to set it on the ironing board or to put it away.
Admittedly, it did take me a little while to stop lifting the iron and setting it on it's heel. But now that I'm used to it I don't think I could ever go back to a normal iron. However, if you should prefer to still set the iron on it's heel, there is a switch to shut off the lifting mechanism.
For me, I love my Oliso iron the way it is. I really can't recommend it high enough!"
- Jenny, a Happy Customer
What makes Oliso Smart Iron so Special....?
First, it’s safer than other irons on the market. The “iTouch” sensors mean you don’t have to set the iron on its end when you are not using it (as you would with normal household irons).
Instead, the handle senses when you are holding the iron or not and “hovers” about 2 cm above the fabric when it is not in use and prevents scorching the surface of your project. Being in this position, it also prevents accidental tipping – whether it be onto the floor or your foot!
Secondly, the steam holes are located around the outer edges of the soleplate, which means that pressing is more precise and less likely to distort the fabric.
It also has a unique pointed "detailer" feature at the front tip of the iron, which makes it easy to iron hard-to-reach spots like corners, collars and pockets.
"This is a really cool iron. Yes, it takes a bit of time to get used to it, as I constantly flip the iron up to vertical position at first!
As you plug the iron in, its legs automatically raise up and left the iron off the table. Then you can fill in the water, rotate the dial to select type of garment and steam amount. As your hand grabs the iron, the legs retracted and you are ready to iron away.
The iron is about the right weight. Not too light that you have to constantly press on the garment, and not too heavy that pushing it aorund becomes a chore. It is also heated very fast to desired temperature.
The iron came with a cup designed to fill the water. It has a pointed spout that fits just right to the opening. If you lose this cup, fill the iron might be a bit harder, so make sure this doesn't happen.
The legs that lift the iron up are really really cool (you can turn this feature off with the on/off sliding switch in the back). It means I'll never scorch another one of my shirts!"
- James, a Happy Customer
How Does this Smart Iron help....?
The magic of the Smart Iron comes from Oliso’s patented iTouch technology that allows the iron to lift and lower when activated by the user’s touch.
Because the iron is elevated to a safe distance from the surface, there is no need to lift the iron and set it upright constantly. As a result, the repeated wrist motion (which causes RSI) is eliminated from ironing and streamlining the entire process as a whole. Imagine - NO more pains!
Resting horizontally also provides a broader base for balance, and the iron will remain stable even if the board is bumped and tilted up to a 25 degree incline.
Fancy footworks aside, this iron is also heavier and more powerful than your standard domestic irons. So the pressing weight (with gravity's help) combining with strong steam means your ironing can be done effortlessly!
For extra peace-of-mind, the Oliso iron features a 8-minute safety auto-shut off in case you've been held up, a 376 ml (12.7 oz) side fill tank, a beadblast finish on the stainless steel soleplate, flat pressing surface, detailer tip, and a 3.7 m cord for full range of motion.
Enjoy the 2400 watts of power and horizontal or vertical bursts of steam and potentially save up to 30% of your regular ironing time!
With the help of iTouch technology, you will never have to worry about whether you've left your iron down, ever again!
The iTouch sensors are located in the handle of the iron; when the handle is released, the iron is lifted on stilts called "scorchguards" (not to be confused with Scotch Guard - which is an upholstery surface spray) 2 cm off the surface, giving an impression that the iron is hovering about the board. The elevation prevents the soleplate from scorching the fabric.
Sounds impressive, huh? I’m just glad it works.
"This iron makes ironing fun! I never thought that I'd say this, LOL.
Everyone loves watching the iron go up and down. Now my kids are voluteering to help me iron just so they can see the iron do its thing. Brilliant!
Apart from the fact that it won't scroch, I like also that the iron will never tip. Great product!!!"

"I love this iron for pressing while sewing. It's such a great invention!
The fact that I don't have to worry about it when I set it down to open a seam or peel off the back of my applique before assembly is wonderful.
Love the ability to leave the iron flat - it is nice to not have to set it up on end constantly, and that makes pressing much more efficient. Although it took a bit of getting used to at first (old habits die hard).
The other great thing is the length of the cord! I can reach all around the ironing board without any trouble. I quilt and have an iron on for long periods of time - this has met my needs very well."
- Michelle, a Happy Customer
How was Oliso Smart Iron invented?
When it comes to ironing, there’s been almost NO change since the invention of the household steam iron more than 50 years ago, let alone one that's made specifically with quilters and sewists in mind.
So when the Oliso iron was first introduced to the public, there was quilte a lot of excitment.
“I was doing a demonstration and [the crowd] was actually folding the order forms into paper airplanes and throwing them at me. They were screaming things like, ‘This is better than a Ferrari!’ ” says Oliso's inventor, Ehsan Alipour. “It was scary.”
Human Centered Design
Ehsan believes a human centered design process, where everything starts from the user, and NOT from the design room.
In order to design a better iron, he first spent a lot of time observing how people use irons to see first hand what kinds of challenges they faced. It soon became clear that the most glaring issues were the irritating need to lift and tilt the iron to avoid scorching and the constant danger of it falling off the ironing surface.
Drawing on his electrical engineering background - Alipour had formed his own electrical lighting and design company a few years after emigrating from Iran in 1983 - he developed the first iron prototype that included the lifters and the hand sensor. This was just the start!
Years Of Designing & Testing
The resulting Oliso Smart Iron that you see in front of you took years of development, hundreds of prototypes, and thousands of hours of testing.
People from all walks of life were invited to use and test the prototypes - from dry cleaners, tailors, quilters, and everyday people who sew - to people who love to iron, hate to iron, and everyone in between. Feedback from the test users were activly applied to improve the prototype, until it was RIGHT.
The award-winning Oliso Iron was actually part of his masters program while he studied product design at Stanford University. After a few short years of having it out on the market, the Oliso Iron now has a faithful cult following among the quilting and sewing craft community.
Better Ironing For You
The Oliso team of researchers, designers and engineers continued to spend many hours observing people, developing prototypes and conducting extensive user testing before creating a final product, so that Oliso's patented-protected technologies are BEST suited to provide you with simpler solutions than what is currently available in the market.
