The Max 9" (23 cm) Microfleur microwave flower press is Microfleur's most popular press.

81 square inches of pressing space. Flowers, foliage and plants are quickly pressed between two cotton liners, two thick wool pads and two vented platens, all of which are held together by 4 clips.

Pressing is done in very short intervals spaced with short resting periods. Flowers can be used the same day and color retention is exceptional, compared with traditional pressing methods.

The pressed flowers can then be used for greeting cards, scrapbooking, wedding and other invitations, menus, bookmarks or applied to candles and soap, art and decoupage projects.

It is the ultimate flower press and is commonly used by oshibana and other artists, as well as by botanists. The liners are washable and the pads will last for hundreds of cycles.
