In before the "use your iron" bs comments.

I will say this, Think about what you are going to be doing and planning accordingly. I got the 9x9 and thought it was a nice size, in truth it is and I haven't had any issues with it... having said that, I do a lot of adult shirts and often the size of the HTV is 11"x3"-12". All that means is that I am doing multiple presses and the hot plate is usually overlapping spots. a 6"x7" would be easier to do multiple presses and not fear I am going to overheat the vinyl or something. In hindsight I should have just got the big dog, but too late now.

As for why not use you iron, it can be fine, it was initially for me save for a few things. )1 I would often notice little divers where the steam holes are on the iron (because they have the hole and little indentation around it, if your iron doesn't then maybe no issue for you). 2) If you have something go south while crafting you may get stuff all over the iron, probably depends on how often you use it. 3) My iron was about $40 at wally world and the plate does not heat evenly, I don't know how hot it is getting, and the hottest part is the point, which makes for a much more inconvenient time pressing.

A good iron runs about this price, so why not get one with more even heating, built in temperature dreading and timer? I did about 15 shirts before I decided to treat myself with the easy press and since I've done about 30 more. I love it!

Oh, I guess you can't iron with this thing that is a large flat hot surface? Maybe you only need this, expand your mind.
That's like saying a knife does multiple jobs so I'm not buying a vinyl cutter, scissors, more than 1 knife, a razor... Go look in an average woodshed and see how many saws there are... but maybe you don't really get into hobbies that use multiple types of the same thing. Sorry, I should just say go away troll; you come in here with the only intention of crapping on the thread, I'm sure there is an apple thread missing you.

An iron does two jobs, but this does 1. No thanks.

Biggest differences between this and a standard clothes iron I think are steam and control. I tried finding a decent iron for Cricut iron-ons and everything I found pointed to Cricut easypresses being better for that purpose due to the lack of steam, even heating surface (because there aren't grooves or holes cut out for steam jets), plus Cricut has a heating guide online with recommended settings for different materials that's pretty handy. I have the 9x9 easypress and it worked great for making a few shirts with large decals. The easypress mini is on sale right now for like $20 less than this so I'd say go with the size that fits your needs. Both are still more expensive than they should be, but handy devices nonetheless. I don't iron my clothes but I do enjoy making shirts so this one function suits me better than a traditional iron would.

Also this price on Cricut's site. If you subscribe to their access program (to get access to their image/project library) you also get 10% off purchases. And if you search online there's a few people that have special codes to get free shipping when you spend $50 and a discount on supplies (machines not included). Will say Cricut's customer service has been excellent the few times I've contacted them.

What is the main difference between this and the mini that is $50? Wanting to get one for a gift, but I am clueless about these.

Would you recommend holding out for a 12 x 10 deal if no rush?

Does one need any additional items to get started? A heat mat? Vinyl? Amazon has all these items as a what others bought with this item.

I have a 15"x15"...... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0043H9F...Y6xg3FBQUe
best purchase I have made aside from my Cricut when it comes to crafting. As mentioned before..... adult shirts are typically close to a 12"x12" htv cut. This is something I chose to spend a little more on and it paid off. It pays for itself over time.

I bought the original one on Prime day a couple years ago, and I love it! It works a lot better than an iron and is much more convenient. I also purchased the pressing mat and Teflon sheets. I don't have room for a full heat press, and I don't care to dedicate space to one. Additionally, I refuse to buy a cheap one on Amazon because they're a major electrical appliance and it's money well spent to get one that's well-made. I'm just a hobbyist so I don't care to spend ~$500 for a heat press.
