What is the Difference between my Cricut Explore and the other Cricut products?

So first let me say when I got my Cricut Explore in 2014, It wasn't but like 5 months later and they came out with the Explore Air...I was so mad, b/c those machines aren't cheap....I have been kind of cheap I just bought the wireless adapter to cut without the cord hook-up.

The Explore and Explore Air only have one difference. The Cricut Explore Air™ comes with a built-in Bluetooth® and does not require the Cricut Explore® Wireless Bluetooth® Adapter. The Explore requires the Bluetooth® Adapter to connect via Bluetooth® to cut wirelessly.

If you have the Cricut Explore Air, you don’t have to use the wireless. It still has a USB connection to hook directly to the computer.  This means, if you have the external Bluetooth adapter for the Cricut Explore, you can do everything that the Cricut Explore Air can do. If you have the Cricut Explore already, I would not recommend upgrading. If you want the wireless feature, save some money and buy the Cricut Wireless Adapter.  If you are deciding between the two machines, the Explore Air is nice, but you may be able to save some money by buying the Cricut Explore and purchasing the wireless adapter separately.

Now I may upgrade to another Cricut because of the abilities such quilting and cutting wood.

Cricut Explore Air 2

Actually, the main selling point of the Cricut Explore Air 2 is its cutting and writing speed. The machine has two operation modes. The normal mode allows you to cut at the usual pace. On the other hand, the fast mode enables you to do the job twice as fast.  It’s also important to note that this Cricut machine comes with Cut Smart 2 technology. This patent-pending technology goes a long way in improving the quality of your cuts at all times. And what’s the thickest material that this machine can cut? Well, the Explore Air 2 is capable of cutting wood. 

WHY do I WANT the Cricut Maker?

The Cricut Maker is, without a doubt, the best Cricut machine ever. Not only is it powerful, wireless-enabled and compact but also dependable. In addition, not only does it come with a double tool holder and faster-cutting speed but a rotary blade as well.

The rotary blade does an incredible job of cutting tough fabrics. This special blade is equipped with both a rolling and gliding action which gives the machine extra power to slice through fabric like a knife through butter.

On top of that, this machine comes with a knife blade. What’s that for? You might be wondering. Well, this is a sharper blade which can cut through materials as thick as 2.4mm thick. In other words, these two blades – rotary and knife blades – elevate the Cricut Maker to the level of sophisticated desktop cutters. And on top of that, the machine’s 4kg of cutting pressure is as powerful as they come.
