I need to get an edible image machine a.s.a.p. The Epson is on sale until tomorrow at Target, but I was hoping for feedback on clogging, etc. for the two brands. If you do or do not like yours, I think many of us would appreciate your thoughts! Thanks for any help!

I just bought mine, havent used it yet for edible image but before I purchased it I asked a few people here and they gave good reviews about the Epson CX7450. The Canon IP3500 doesn't come with a scanner.

Grom what I've read a lot of people have problems with canon clogging. My epson sits for months at a time without use and it has never clogged on me.

I have the EpsonC88 and haven't had many problems with it really. I can't help you with the Cannon, but I like my Epson.

I have the Canon IP3500 and have had nothing but problems. It cloggs and has problems when you place the chips on the tank. I'm looking to replace it as soon as I can determine what to purchase, but I guarantee you that it will not be a Canon!

Thanks for all of the info! So far it is looking thumbs up on Epson over Canon. Hopefully the model I am looking at is the way to go!

I have that exact model, and I love it. Like others have said, it sits for months and then all of a sudden I go to print and it works like a charm. Just make sure that you print on "photo quality" or "high photo quality". I have ruined a few icing sheet because I forgot that step.
Good luck and enjoy!

I have a Cannon and *knock on wood* have had no problems. I print maybe one image a month...
