6-1/2" Lee Valley Microwave Flower Press - Gardening
6-1/2" Lee Valley Microwave Flower Press - Gardening
Conventional flower presses can take up to 3 weeks to dry flowers. This microwave oven press will do it in minutes. An impatiens can be pressed and dried in as little as 3 minutes, and a blackeyed Susan is ready in 2 minutes. More important, this method preserves colors far better than the slow-drying process.

The press comes with two absorbent pads of natural wool and two sheets of broadcloth that sandwich between two stout kiln-fired terra cotta slabs. The slabs measure 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" and, at 2 lb each, ensure plants are pressed flat. Microwaving forces moisture out of the plant through the wool and out of the press. The terra cotta slabs moderate the drying process, preventing the problems of overfast drying.

The dried flowers and foliage can be mounted on cards or behind glass. Full instructions are included. (We also offer a larger 8-3/4" square flower press, item #GM430.) Makes a great gift.

Patented.
