The Best Electronic Cutting Machines From Cricut and Silhouette

The Best Electronic Cutting Machines From Cricut and Silhouette

Newer, shinier cutting machines have come along since the Cricut Explore Air 2 was released in late 2016, but it is still our top pick for beginners. It made perfectly clean cuts in card stock (the Silhouette machines snagged the paper a bit) and easily cut through vinyl. The cutting area of the Cricut Explore Air 2 is the same size as the Cricut Maker’s and the Silhouette Cameo 3’s. I’ve had Silhouette and Cricut machines that I purchased myself for several years, and reselling them on eBay when a new model comes out is easy. As of this writing, the Cricut Explore Air 2 typically sells on eBay for about $150 used.
