The new Cricut EasyPress 3

Wondering what is different with the new Cricut EasyPress 3? You will know everything by reading this article!

Cricut announces today the release of several products: the hat press, the Cricut Autopress and the new version of its EasyPress.

Disclosure: Thanks to Cricut for providing me with the product for review. I am not paid or sponsored by Cricut to write this post. All opinions are 100% my own and honest.

What’s the difference?

The big difference is that the new EasyPress 3 has Bluetooth connectivity.

Yes, that’s it!

The idea is to be able to use it with the new free Cricut Heat app instead of always having to search the Internet in the Cricut Heat Guide to get the temperature and time settings.

But basically, the app allows you to select your base material, your heat transfer material and send, in one click, the temperature and duration to your Easy Press 3.

Can the EasyPress 3 work without the Cricut Heat app?

The app is very convenient for beginners to follow what you need to do, step by step. But once your EasyPress 3 is registered, the use of the application is completely optional.

You can use the EasyPress 3 without the help of the app. In fact, it can work in the same way as the EasyPress 2 (it has the same setting buttons).

A small downside though! You MUST have the application to make the FIRST registration of the EasyPress 3. So, you absolutely need to have a cell phone (or access to a cell phone) to be able to activate it the first time.

This application is completely free and can be downloaded from Google Play or Apple App Store and is available in several languages.

Should I change my EasyPress 2 for an EasyPress 3?

Aside from its Zen blue colour and Bluetooth functionality, the EasyPress 3 is identical to the EasyPress 2!

The Easy Press 3 is rather aimed at those who have a Cricut and who have never dared to try a heat transfer application, for fear of making a misstep.

With the Cricut Heat app, beginners will be guided step by step through their new challenge and will be able to create with confidence.


The Cricut EasyPress 3 is available only in Zen blue and in 12″ x 10″ and 9″ x 9″ format.

The new Cricut EasyPress 3 will be available for purchase online from March 13, 2022, for Canada and the United States.

In Europe, it will be necessary to wait until May 1, 2022.

For those of us just purchased the Easy press 2, right at Christmas, you do this every time. Lots of people, like me, receive them as a Christmas gift, then you suddenly announce a new version! Happened to me with my Maker 2 and now my Heat Press 2. Shame on you for not announcing these news ones around Christmas, so people could take advantage of the new options. You’d rather get our money at Christmas, and then announce your new products after your old Inventory has dwindled! You need to give every customer who purchased in November thru the end of March a trade in! Sorry you are so money hungry you’d rather screw over your customers.

Hi Linda, first, you say "you" but I'm not Cricut. I'm just a blogger who makes tutorials on how to use your Cricut. Second. The EasyPress 2 is the exact same thing as the 3. The only difference is the Bluetooth connectivity that will benefit beginners who never used an EasyPress. You're totally fine and not missing anything with your EasyPress 2.
