I love this sharpener...it is super quiet, fast, reliable....and the best part about it is that I no longer have to remind my students that they are taking too long to sharpen pencils because it automatically stops working once the pencil is sharpened. I would say this is the best in the market at this moment. :)

Decent 2 month classroom sharpener

This is my third shaprener of the school year. They overheat and break easily, but it gets the job done well when it's working.

Excellent sharpener

By Jascha

Comments about Staples® ClassMate Electric Pencil Sharpener, Heavy-Duty, Blue:

I gave this pencil sharpener to my daughter-in-law, who teaches kindergarten in Ogden, Utah. Her old sharpener, which she inherited from a previous teacher, was horrible. This new one was exactly what she was looking for--it's heavy duty, with a large container for collecting the "shavings." It accommodates a variety of pencil sizes. And, much to my surprise, my daughter-in-law says it even automatically stops when the pencil is sharp. Anyone who wants an excellent pencil sharpener for the office or the classroom would be wise to look at this. It's wonderful.

Pencil sharpener

By Bob

Comments about Staples® ClassMate Electric Pencil Sharpener, Heavy-Duty, Blue:

THe Staples ClassMate Pencil Sharpener, Heavy Duty is the best electric pencil sharpener I have ever owned. As a math teacher, I use pencil by the gross. This sharpener has a great auto-stop feature that actually turns off the powert to the motor when the pencil is sharpened sufficiently so the point activates a pressure switch that cuts ower to the motor. THe point is finely sharpened such that I use the freshly sharpened point to make neat clean algebraic calculations and precise graphs. I highly recommend this sharpener to anyone lookingfor a heavy use sharpener at a reasonable price.

So far, so good

By BG

from Clemmons, NC

Comments about Staples® ClassMate Electric Pencil Sharpener, Heavy-Duty, Blue:

I bought this pencil sharpener for my classroom. I am a high school teacher and my students are rough on all of the equipment in the room. This one has a fairly large compartment to hold shavings, which means that I don't have to empty it quite as often. I give away tons of pencils and because they are new they make a lot of shavings. The sharpener stops when the pencil is sharp, which so far has helped with the kids feeling like they need to keep ramming the pencil in the sharpener well past the time the pencil is sharpened. I hope that it will last for a long time. I did take out the warranty on it because of the classroom use, so time will tell. Overall, very pleased so far.

Not so Heavy-Duty

By Just a guy

from NY

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Staples® ClassMate Electric Pencil Sharpener, Heavy-Duty, Blue:

Purchased this sharpener only about 6 months ago. When it worked, it worked well, but as I read in another review, the motor is unreliable. It's very moody and I can only do one or two pencils before the motor jams up and it makes a sound like it's stuck. I've checked the chamber to see if lead was stuck, but that's not the case. There is no explanation as to why it does this, but if I'm patient enough, it begins to work again and I have to ever-so-gently sharpen the pencil and pray that I don't anger the little pencil sharpener god who lives inside this thing.

Do I recommend this sharpener? Not unless you're in the mood to test your anger management. Not worth the $50 either.

      Comments about Staples® ClassMate Electric Pencil Sharpener, Heavy-Duty, Blue:

      The ClassMate sharpener sharpens quickly and cleanly. The points are sharp and the surrounding wood is smooth. As a teacher, I sharpen an inordinate amount of pencils daily. Well worth the cost.
