Our Cricut Explore Air 2 review

What Cricut does well is making these cutting machines easy to use and believe me, when I first started using them – that was needed!  I wanted to create and I wanted to do it now.  I didn’t want to spend hours watching you tube videos and pouring over the manual to get the settings right.

The Explore Air 2 is a really easy to use cutting machine and everything about it feels like it’s a quality product.  I love the way that the dial works and it makes it really simple to select the right settings for my materials.

Can cut, write and score – all 2 x faster

The Cricut Explore Air 2 can work incredibly fast – up to 2 times faster which means that if you’re in a rush you can get your projects completed in much quicker time.

It has a double tool holder so it can also cut and write all in one go or cut and score.

Design anytime and anywhere

Cricut now allows you to design and upload your own work for free which is great for those of us with graphic design abilities!  You can upload your own designs and fonts.

You don’t just have to design on your computer though, you can use your smart phone or tablet too with their Design Space app (iOS only) and with their offline option you can design even if you don’t have internet access.

What others have to say

As well as giving my own thoughts I really like to scour the internet to get a general view of what people have said about this machine to give a more rounded view.

To be honest, it’s easy to find good reviews of this product – they are everywhere!  Everyone seems to rate it as a really simple to use product, accurate and perfect cutting and something that is addictive!  So much crafting to do and this machine seems to help with it all!

The negatives seem to be focused on the design software which I’ll agree isn’t the best around

Overall this is a really great and easy to use machine.  Being easy to use is important with these machines because if you make them too complicated you’ll just find that it gathers dust or is resold on.  I really like that Cricut focus on making it as simple and enjoyable to use as possible.  Oh, and I love the colors available!
