Learn what a Cricut EasyPress is and if you will need one for your Cricut projects.
What is a Cricut Easy Press?
Cricut has made a new and better iron or heat press perfect for Cricut users, and it’s called the Cricut Easy Press. They have several sizes and I own two of them and I love both. I have the 9 inch by 9 inch and the small one, which is perfect for hats or kids clothes.
It takes the guess work out of ironing your HTV(Heat Transfer Vinyl) vinyl on shirts or bags or whatever.
The consistent pressure all over is wonderful. With my conventional iron I was never sure if I was pressing hard enough or if the edges were touching all the HTV. It was a guessing game every time I tried using it.
Each Cricut Easy Press has simple digital controls and comes with a quick reference app to make any iron on projects much easier. It really does take the guess work out of it.
There is a timer on it. I just click that button when I start and it counts down 30 seconds. No more guessing…did I do it long enough?
The small Mini Heat Press has 3 heat settings and no timer, but you can guess 15 seconds or 30 seconds yourself. I find it just as easy to use as the big one.
All the Cricut Easy Presses has its own base that it sits in. I love this feature because I never know what to do with my hot iron once I am done with it. If the grand kids are around it makes me so nervous. Well not any more. Check out this base!
I put the hot iron right back into its base at 305 degrees and it never melts or anything, and I don’t have to be worried it will melt or burn something on my work table. So cool….I mean hot!
The Mini Easy Press has its own base as well.
I didn’t do much HTV(Heat Transfer Vinyl) before I bought the Cricut Easy Press. I found HTV(Heat Transfer Vinyl) to be hard and I wasn’t secure in the results.
I bought the Cricut Easy Press and I love it so much. HTV(Heat Transfer Vinyl) vinyl has become my new favorite thing to use in my crafting. It makes iron on vinyl fast and easy.
Cricut Easy Press VS Tradition Home Iron
You can see how the heat from the traditional iron isn’t consistent throughout the entire iron.
I need consistency in my crafting…don’t you?
