Cricut Maker 3

The best Cricut machine for smart materials

Purpose: Cuts 300+ materials | Best for: Professionals | Size: 56 x 18 x 15.7cm | Weight: 6.9kg

Good for professional use
Cuts smart materials without a mat
Two extra accessories
Overkill for small hobby projects

Released in 2021, the Cricut Maker 3 is an update of the original Cricut Maker (no, there's no Cricut Maker 2 – go figure). The main upgrade it offers is the ability to work with smart materials without a mat. This means you can make cuts of up to 12 ft (3.6 m) in one go. When we reviewed the machine, we found this to be a huge advantage and something that, once you try, makes it hard to go back from being able to reel off long, unbroken rolls of cut craft projects.

The Cricut Maker 3 is also twice as fast as the Cricut Maker when working with smart materials. You also get two extra accessories: a larger portable trimmer and a roll holder – helpful for feeding smart materials into the machine. See our full Cricut Maker 3 review for an in-depth analysis.

How much can you expect to pay? Well, the Cricut Maker 3 standard retail price is $429 / £399, but we've seen Cricut Maker 3 deals take down to $399 / £379 – keep an eye on the automatically updated widget above. The price is significantly more than what you're likely your have to pay for the original Cricut Maker at the moment (its standard retail price is $399 / £259, but we've seen it reduced as low as $229 / £239 since the release of the newer machine). 

That said, the improved handling of smart materials is worth paying for in our experience – and the Cricut Maker 3 bundle deals below offer a good opportunity to buy the machine together with tools and materials in order to save money.

Which is the best Cricut machine?

Each Cricut machine (and there are a few) all do specific things particularly well. so the answer to this question depends on what you want to do with your Cricut machine. For example, the Cricut Mug Press is all about printing onto mugs. The Cricut EasyPress Mini is specifically created for printing on smaller surfaces, such as hats, shoes and bags.

Then we move to the bigger machines that offer more features, and so can handle more projects. At the top of the list are the Cricut Maker and Cricut Maker 3 (Cricut skipped 2). The first is the original advanced Cricut, and it still impresses with its ability to handle loads of materials, including paper, wood, leather and lace. The Cricut Maker 3 is a more advanced version still, with better motors making it twice as fast, and most importantly allowing crafters to work with smart materials. This is the best overall Cricut machine out there, if you're a serious crafter.

And there's more options. The Cricut Explore Air 2 is perfect for people new to crafting, and around half of the price of the Cricut Maker 3. Then there's the Cricut Explore 3, which is cheaper than the top end Cricut Maker 3, but a bit more than the Explore 3, as it can handle smart materials.

If you want compact and lightweight, the Cricut Joy is a low-priced option that will easily handle making labels, stickers and cards (though it can still cut up to 20 feet!) Finally, the Cricut EasyPress 2, which comes in two sizes, is the iron-on machine that's ideal if you want to print t-shirts, totes, pillow cases, banners, etc.
