Cricut EasyPress Review (and a Beginner Tutorial)

The Cricut EasyPress is quite literally one of the hottest new things to hit the market for crafters who work with heat transfer vinyl, rhinestones, and custom transfers. If you're here for the giveaway head straight to the bottom of the post to enter (although I'd suggest you read through my  Easypress reviewand tutorial first because even if you don't win won, you may very well decide you need to have one).

cricut easypress review, cricut easy press review, cricut easypress tutorial

The Circut EasyPress is a cross between an iron and a heat press.  It had me equal parts excited and skeptical so as soon as I saw it hit Amazon a few weeks ago I ordered one. (Right now they're back-ordered almost everywhere so decide if you want one and then stalk them!) I mention that because - like you - purchasing the $149 Cricut EasyPress allows me to be the consumer who paid their hard earned money on this craft gadget.

Cricut EasyPress Review

I'm sure I had the same burning questions about the Cricut EasyPress as most of you who have had their interest peaked by the 9 x 9" portable heat press.
  • Is the Cricut EasyPress really worth $149 (plus tax) when you can get a full size heat press for not much more? 
  • Can the Cricut EasyPress really provide enough pressure to successfully and consistently transfer heat transfer vinyl onto surfaces and prevent them from peeling wash after wash? 
  • What are the real pros and cons of the Cricut EasyPress for crafters?
Even before you open the box there are obvious benefits to using a Cricut EasyPress over a heat press - namely the compact size. For those crafters who don't have space to store a heat press - even a small heat press - the EasyPress, which has a 9 x 9" platen may be the answer as it can easily store in a cabinet, drawer or shelf.  Plus, the small size makes it ideal on the go - think craft shows, crops, workshops, or traveling - wherever you want or need to apply custom presses.

cricut easypress review, cricut easy press review, pros and cons cricut easypress, cricut easypress tutorial, cricut easypress vs heat press

The Circut EasyPress, while compact, isn't 'light.' The reason heat presses work so well is because they apply both heat and even pressure.  The EasyPress weighs five pounds (yes I put it on the scale) which in and of itself means there will be pressure on the heat transfer material.  Unlike a heat press, where you can lock it and forget it for 20 seconds, the EasyPress does require added downward pressure from the user throughout the entire press.

I would love to say the EasyPress is ready to use out of the box. While it's pretty much plug and play, it's lacking a very important part: a pressing mat.  In fact at the time of this blog post, the Cricut EasyPress Mat is not even available to purchase. Instead, I would recommend you get a silicone foam mat. Once you tack that $20 mat on to the $149 press you're nearing heat press price levels.)

That will simulate the base of a heat press and, when placed on a solid, firm surface, allow you to best mimic a heat press while using the Cricut EasyPress.

Cricut EasyPress Set Up and Use

Alright so once you have everything you need, you want to keep the EasyPress in its gray base while you plug it in and warm it up. Press the power button and then press the Temperature button. When the temperature starts flashing use the +/- buttons to change the temperature according to the recommended settings for the HTV and material you are using.

Next, press the Time button. When it starts flashing, change the time the same way using the +/- buttons.

Wait while the EasyPress comes to temperature - which honestly is very fast. I time raced my Cricut EasyPress vs my trusty heat press and the EasyPress won by almost 8 full minutes minutes. It took the Cricut EasyPress just 2:42 to heat up from "off" to 305.  My heat press took more than 10 and a half minutes to warm up to the same temperature (in fact my Cricut EasyPress auto shut-off while we waited for the heat press to come to temperature).

circut easy press vs heat press, cricut easypress vs heat press, cricut easypress pros cons

Where the Cricut portable heat press is lacking is in its maximum temperature range. Its max temperature is only 350 degrees while my heat press can go well over 400.  For most materials this won't be an issue, but some materials such as sublimation and printed heat transfers require heat over 350 degrees.

Prepare your heat transfer vinyl decal on the surface while you're waiting. Place the shirt or other surface flat on top of the silicone foam mat. Place the HTV decal on top of that. (I did not use a teflon sheet while pressing with the Cricut EasyPress). When the EasyPress has reached the desired temperature the orange light on the Cricut button will turn green and you're ready to press.

Remove the portable press from the base and place it directly on the heat transfer vinyl decal.  Don't forget to press the green Cricut button to begin the timer. (I do like that my heat press' timer starts automatically in case I forget to press the button.)

cricut easypress review, cricut easypress tutorial, how to use cricut easypress

Do not move the Cricut EasyPress around while pressing! Keep it still while applying pressure during the entire pressing time.  When the timer beeps place the press back in the stand. Wait for the HTV to cool down before removing the carrier sheet from the heat transfer vinyl.

Cricut EasyPress vs Heat Press 

Because I wanted to compare the HTV pressed with a Cricut EasyPress with heat press-applied HTV, I added another HTV decal to the same surface. The text was cut in the same font style and size to make sure no other factors impacted the press.
 
I was also very careful to make sure the HTV applied with the EasyPress did not get double pressed while using the heat press.

Now comes the true test...will the HTV applied with the Cricut EasyPress pass the washing machine test?

cricut easypress cons, review cricut easypress, silhouette cameo cricut easypress

I washed the onesie inside out and laid it flat to dry - which is always recommended with HTV anyway.  After the first wash both HTV designs had no lifting or peeling...


Half a dozen washes later....and both presses still look as good as they did when I first applied them.

So after using the Circut EasyPress and comparing it to the pressing quality of a heat press I'm a believer. There are definitely pros and cons to the Cricut EasyPress and whether you 'need' a Cricut EasyPress is really going to depend on what you see as a pro and what you see as a con. 

Cricut EasyPress Pros

  • It's small and compact making it easy to store 
  • It's portable
  • Heats up quickly
  • Produces a quality press

Cricut EasyPress Cons

  • Price is comparable to an inexpensive heat press (this is the heat press I have)
  • Doesn't include a necessary pressing mat
  • Smaller surface area than standard heat press
  • Max temperature is 350
  • Requires added pressure from user
There is no question - the Cricut EasyPress results in a quality press....and I'm definitely impressed! Only because of the price tag, the 350 max temperature, and the fact that it doesn't include the necessary pressing mat, I'm giving the Cricut EasyPress a B+.

Now...if you're here hoping to win a Cricut EasyPress..you're in luck! Between December 11, 2017 and December 14, 2017 at 11:59:59 pm EST we'll be offering a chance for you to win an EasyPress!!  Cricut has agreed to let us open this giveaway to Silhouette School readers worldwide - which means...anyone can enter to win!

  1. I love that it's portable, but the small size of it and the fact that you need to add more pressure and press for longer amounts of time are an issue for me. If it were at least 11 x 11 I might be swayed, but sorry to say, this is a no-go for me.

  2. Thanks for doing this. I have been trying to decide what would be best for me.

  3. HI Do you like your clamshell heat press more than a swing away and why? Also, I noticed yours says Sublimation, what does that mean?
    Thank you

  5. Thanks for your unbiased review. The fact that you bought one to share how it worked means a lot more than the other reviews I've read from the bloggers that are in the Cricut marketing team and are being compensated for the product.

    I don't use a heat press for anything. The vinyl that I transfer is always quite small and haven't had problems using my regular iron. I do like the fact that the heat press has the base plate.

  7. Great review, Melissa! Thanks for the info' on the silicon mat. You ROCK!!!

  8. Great review!
    I found that when I use mine, it does NOT need any noticeable amount of extra pressure on my part. No need to bear down on the press, just firmly holding it in place does the job. A great space saver.

  43. I'd love to win a Cricut Easy Press because I've started a collection of HTV and havn't really attempted to try it out yet because I only have an iron and it has tons of holes in the bottom of it. It'd be great to actually do some of my projects.

    ReplyDelete

Hopefully this is the right place to leave the comment to win as I dont see any other comments but I would love to win this so my daughter and I can start making shirts for her as she is a college student and can't afford all the cool western Tshirts she sees that she would love to own but just can't afford as college costs so much now days. She has had to start life over as she got lymes disease and it gave her a stroke at age of 23 and I just want to help her so much but can't as my husband works with troubled teens so our income is very small

  49. I love this! I don't have a full on Silhouette office set up. I usually get a towel and my iron out and do my shirts on the office floor. lol.. that's sad. This would be perfect! Small and compact enough to easily store away in my small office but it gets the job done easier than my rink dink iron! Thanks for posting this giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  68. Om my gosh, this is amazing! I hope I'm the lucky winner. I can't get anything to stay as my iron isn't hot enough and I don't have the space for a large/standard heat press....

    ReplyDelete
  69. I think this would be much more effective than my regular old iron

    ReplyDelete
  70. This would be a wonderful addition to my kitchen table crafting space. :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I would love to win one! It would be great to travel with when I take stuff to my sisters or mothers house to press stuff for them! Much easier than messing with an iron I would think!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. This would be wonderful- I wouldn't have to lean so hard on my iron anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Honestly, it kinda sounds like a way over-priced iron. I do like the fact that it's portable enough to take to craft fairs to "do while they wait". I don't know, I'd have to actually try it to give a real opinion...

    ReplyDelete
  74. This is awesome!! I have wanted/needed a heat press for a while now but couldn't find the room to put a larger one in. This would be the answer to all of my prayers, haha. I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh, this looks fun! I actually have never tried HTV because I don't have the right tools to do it with. My regular iron doesn't even work that well for what it is supposed to do so I am afraid to try it with HTV but the Easy Press looks awesome! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  76. I like that it’s compact. My craft room is a shared space and doubles as our home office. So we are limited on space. This would work well for me. It’s compact enough I can store it in my desk. While the coverage area is small and the temperature isn’t as high those don’t bother me as much since I don’t do heat transfer as often.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Thanks Melissa! This would be a great portable option for me!

  79. Thank you for your honest review of the Cricut Easy Press! I have wanted one from the moment they came out. Two reasons I didn't get it 1) I wanted to remain loyal to Silhouette 2) They sold out fast! The main reason I want it so badly is my lack of space for a heat press, plus I want the flexibility to do craft shows and make shirts on the spot. What an amazing giveaway for the winner!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I can think of several ways to use this handy appliance! I make appliques for clothing and quilts; this would be a great way to easily apply them. Ironing napkins and my DH's handkerchiefs would be a snap. (I think my DH is one of the last dinosaurs to use a handkerchief.)

    ReplyDelete
  81. I WOULD LOVE TO WIN ONE OF THESE AS IT IS SMALL AND I HSVE VERY LITTLE SPACE IDEAL.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I currently use my regular iron but would love to find the right fit for something different for me

    ReplyDelete
  83. At this time I don't have the space or strength to pick up,place, or store, a traditional heat press! For these reasons a Cricut Easy Press would be perfect for me! I'd love to win one so I could apply HTV much easier on the baby items and other small projects that I make using my home iron!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Thank you, really great insights into this product!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I currently have no room for a heat press so this would be great for me.

    ReplyDelete
  86. i'd love to win this simply because i cant afford to buy one :/
    i'm Egyptian and and unfortunately recently our government had to devalue the Egyptian pound which led to making all the foreign currency to be extremely expensive so now the US dollar went up from being 6LE to 18.5LE. i know its a long story but that's my reason for not being able to buy it

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love that it's more compact and portable versus an heat press.

  88. I would love one of these. I too have a small craft space and my Heat press takes up a lot of room. Merry Christmas and good luck everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  89. This is perfect! as I have limited space.
    Thank you Melissa for the opportunity to win this little gem.

  90. I would love this as an extra heat press for doing lower temperature craft items where I don't need my heat press and for the portability of it. I actually almost bought one the other day.

  93. I would love to win the Cricut Easypress because I plan on doing alot of trade shows next year and it would be alot easier for me to pack the easypress instead of my big press.

    ReplyDelete
  94. This would be awesome to use. This heat press looks like the perfect size to be portable.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Thanks for the video and review. I'd like to try one only because I would use it for pressing smaller items. Looks a lot easier and better than my iron.

    ReplyDelete
  96. This machine looks amazing....

    ReplyDelete
  97. I love the idea of a full-sized press, but this Easypress seems versatile for us occasional HTV-ers. I'd love to add this to my craft room so I can retire my old clothes iron!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Love the size of this! I don't have it really need yet a heat press so this is the perfect compromise for me.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I would love to win an easy press because I am still using my iron for htv and it is a STRUGGLE. I have disc and nerve problems and the amount of pressure needed to apply htv using my iron is excruciating for me. My kids ask for shirts all the time and I have to wait until I'm having a "good" day before making them. The easy press would make my life so much easier. It would even allow me to start selling more of my items and earn extra income as a stay at home mom. I have learned so much since I started following silhouette school. I love watching the honest reviews and tutorials. Thanks for all that you do!

    ReplyDelete
  103. This is awesome, and how adorable lol. I dont own one but it think it would be so perfect for Onesie, and items with creases which causes off balance even pressure. I would love to have one my daughter just had a baby November1 and i could just imagine all the cute onesies i can make her.

  118. I don’t know if this is the right place, but I would love to win the easy press. I think the portability is a neat and it seems pretty easy to store. My craft room is full to the gills but I think I could find room for this.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Looks like a great option for a quick press without heating up the big workhorse. I'd love to try it out.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Thanks for showing the differences between the easy press and a heat press. For just a "quick" press of one little design it's a great thing to have an easy press. Especially because it heats up so much faster :). I would love to have an easy press also because you can position your fabric on a mat first and don't have to take carel if you touch the hot plate, then press your htv. And third of all it's great "to go" and press some designs at a friend's house while sewing together <3.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I would love to make more shirts and baby clothing with this awesome press!

    ReplyDelete
  124. I would LOVE to own one of these! I'm so tired of trying to use an iron to adhere the items I make! Looks like a WONDERFUL machine!!

  160. omg winning this would mean so much to me as i have not been able to afford one as the currency change and the shipping cost make it that more expensive. To add to that this particular one is fantasiltic as i just dont have the space as its taken up by my cameo and other craft stuff and as this guy is small unlike the big heat presses i will be able to store and then use on my dinning table. Please consider me i have be wanting to do htv stuff but never have cause of the above reasons. thank you

  166. Just as I start looking into other things my Silhouette can do other than paper and card cutting, along comes the opportunity to win the Cricut Easypress. Fingers crossed for a lucky entry.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I've been going back and forth with a decision on this. Love that it's portable, easier to setup taking less space, and probably doesn't give off the heat and warm up the room like a heat press but I love my heat press that it applies all the pressure for me and I've always gotten great results. Melissa, you have me tempted again. Thanks for the chance to win one!!

  169. I would love to have a machine like this! You do bring up a good point that it costs just about as much as a normal heat press, but still, the convenience and portability of this press would open up so many on-site opportunities!
