Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

It heats up hotter, faster, and makes for more effective presses. Especially effective when using thick materials like glitter HTV.
Oh, and, probably my favorite thing OF ALL is that the Easypress has beeping notifications to let you know that it’s pre-heated to the correct temperature (hooray) and then again to let you know that it’s been out of use for long enough that it’s assuming you’ve walked off and it’s going to shut itself off.
Operate the EasyPress 2 the same way as the original EasyPress. Push the power button to turn on – and here’s another cool new feature: it will remember and automatically set to the last settings you used.
Aside from the different size options, the biggest benefit of the EasyPress 2 over the original EasyPress is the higher temperature range.
The Easy Press 2 is really very simple to use. When you take it out of the packaging you’ll see a quick start guide that walks you through your first project with all the materials that came with the press.
The new EasyPress 2 comes with an innovative and streamlined safety base which is a major plus point for safe use for you and even children. The safety base keeps your EasyPress 2 in a protected position on a resting position and also protects the surface of what you are crafting on.
The great thing about the new EasyPress 2 is that it is super easy to learn and it heats up in 60 seconds or less. You can control the temperature, up to 400 F, with ease on the digital display which also has a timer which takes the guesswork out of your projects with different materials.
The EasyPress is super simple to use. Just set the time and temperature and the EasyPress will beep and change color to let you know when it’s ready.

What reviewers didn't like

If you buy the EasyPress 2 and you expect it to work just as well as a professional heat press, then you’re going to be disappointed.
Price is comparable or more than a standard 15 x 15 heat press
EasyPress 2 is more expensive than the original EasyPress but comes with more features and benefits
