The Seasons bring different flowers for our enjoyment. Many people wish they could instantly preserve their favourites, at their most vibrant, and use them for cards, pictures and many other decorations?


Gone are the weeks or months of waiting to enjoy or use pressed flowers.

Now fresh flowers can be pressed in seconds/minutes with ‘Microfleur’ and a microwave oven.

‘Microfleur’ Designed and Manufactures in Australia and now distributed worldwide, is a plastic unbreakable ventilated flower press for use in a microwave oven. Instead of cooking the flowers, magically, they are instantly dried preserving their true colours.

‘Microfleur’ is incredibly easy to use which makes it ideal for beginners, students or the experienced enthusiast.

They could also make a useful present.

‘Microfleur’ can usually press any flowers that can be pressed by conventional means.

In addition ‘Microfleur’ can press more flowers than was previously possible and any insect larvae and eggs are more likely to be destroyed than by conventional methods.

‘Microfleur’ comes in two sizes: - Regular and Max complete with a user guide to get the purchaser started.

The regular is approx. 130mm (5”) square, which is ideal for the hobbyist and large enough for most of the commonly pressed flowers and leaves. The Max is approx. 220mm (9”) square and gives the enthusiast a chance to produce larger specimens or in numbers.

The ‘Microfleur’ press also comes with two heavy-duty felt pads and two cotton lawn liners. These should last for several hundred cycles. Pressing time varies depending on the power of the microwave oven. This can be from 30 seconds to 3 or 4 minutes. Should the felt pads or cotton liners be accidentally scorched, replacements are available.
