Hi everyone!!!! I have a high quality photo printer that was very expensive so I hate to buy another printer. So, I was wondering if I can use the edible ink in this printer. Also, would there be any issues if I were to change out and use it as both a regular printer and a cake printer. I would hate to make someone sick. Let me know. Thanks!!!

From all that I have heard on here, you cannot use a printer that has used regular inks in it. The residue will remain on the ink heads.

I use an epson and I haven't had any problems with it and it was only $50 from the epson website.

I don't think you can switch printer cartridges - ink is toxic. You might consider an inexpensive printer for edible images ONLY.

On another note how can I prolong the life of my edible cartridges if I only use them once in a blue moon?
