Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The easypress delivers a flawless quality press that compares quite well to what you would expect from a heat press. Designs still look as good as new even after half a dozen washes.
The built-in timer promotes ultimate precision of EasyPress up to 60 seconds, and the beep lets you know that it is time to remove the press
This Cricut heat press, however, is super easy to manage thanks to the big handle on top and the Safety Base below. The auto-shutoff feature also makes sure that everything is only hot for as long as you need it — there’s no way that little hands are getting burned using it.
For crafters with small workspaces, the Cricut EasyPress is a dream come true. It comes in at only 5 pounds, compared to my Heat Press which is 10X the weight at 51 pounds. The EasyPress can easily be tucked away in a cupboard, shelf, drawer or anywhere out of sight.
Another excellent benefit of EasyPress over the traditional heat press is that it’s not bulky. Cricut EasyPress has a heat press area of 9″ x 9″. Furthermore, it comes with a fantastic Safety Base that makes it easy to store.
You will also love how safe the Easy Press is. Along with the handle mentioned above, you’ll appreciate the auto-shutoff included to make sure it only stays hot for so long. If you have any young, aspiring artists around, you won’t risk their hands getting burnt either.
With the Cricut EasyPress, you know that the iron on you apply will stay stuck to your material even through wash after wash after wash. This is all due to the evenly distributed heat you cannot find with a regular iron.

What reviewers didn't like

The machine requires added pressure from the user during usage unlike the place and lock mechanism of standard heat presses
Requires a hard surface to be pressed on with pressure
If you’re doing large numbers of T-shirt transfers, say, or running a business, the Easy Press probably isn’t up to the job.
Requires maximum input 120V outlet. Not recommended for use outside North America.
It requires added pressure from the user
If you’ve worked with an iron before, you know how little space it takes up. Even though the Easy Press is compact, it still doesn’t match the portability and storage convenience of a regular iron.
