Truly, the last thing we need in this house is another heat press. But when Cricut announced that they were releasing a true clamshell heat press, we knew then that we would HAVE to check it out. There’s certainly an allure to Cricut products. Much like Apple products, they’re beautifully designed and fairly easy to use. However, sometimes that aesthetic and ease come with some sacrifices. And that’s exactly what we investigate with this video today.

So, if you’re wondering if the Cricut Autopress is worth it (specifically, worth the $1000 MSRP pricetag), then this is the post for you! We offer an unbiased look at the Cricut Autopress and show you its strengths, as well as its weaknesses.
