Great Product

This product is used at our small school. We have purchased many sharpeners but this is by far the best. It sharpens quickly and efficiently. I was very pleased especially for the price.

Is it the Pencil Or the Sharpener?

I have been having Pencil Sharpening DRAMA for a very long time, YEARS.
Of course I first blamed it on the pencil, as I was of course buying Staples brand pencils. But 90% of the pencil points immediately after sharpening WOULD BREAK RIGHT OFF! So naturally I bought More Expensive Pencils! Same thing happens! So what is the next step? BUY A NEW SHARPENER- Right?? Exactly.......which is what I did, THIS ONE- right here. Still have broken pencil points.

Now one will then blame the pencil sharpener OPERATOR and not the equipment.

EVERYONE IN MY OFFICE HAS BROKEN PENCIL POINTS.
I give up......Im going to use a wood wittler from now on :(

Comments about Staples® Desk Mate Electric Pencil Sharpener, Light-Duty:

I love having an electric pencil sharpener. Being a music teacher, I always need pencils! This one works quite well, has a big enough bin and easy to remove. My only complaint so far is that it ate up one of my color pencils.

It's fine for why I bought it. Next time I'd buy one that stops when the pencil is sharp.

Comments about Staples® Desk Mate Electric Pencil Sharpener, Light-Duty:

Works as it should. I thought it might also sharpen the larger pencils but since it does not I will continue to use the hand help sharpener. It makes a nice addition to my office desk and is useful.

Decent!

Comments about Staples® Desk Mate Electric Pencil Sharpener, Light-Duty:

Got this electric pencil sharpener for only $10.00 because Staples was out of the one they had in their ad. I have used it for about a month now. It is decent. Nothing special. However, not complaining given the deal I got. Like always, I do not buy anything unless I get a good deal on it. Once again, Staples exceeded my expectations. Thank you Staples for such a great deal! YOU will NEVER go wrong with Staples!
