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:

Not the strongest electric sharpener, but hopefully will not break with use one day a week at our church. Easy to empty, but definitely for "light" use.

very nice

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

I bought this for my mom who does a lot of artwork and likes her pencils sharp. Was looking for one that is easy to empty as well since she has arthritis. It's sturdy and weighty enough not to move when you use it. It empties nicely, and the pencils sharpen perfectly to a nice tip. Didn't seem to break the tips either. It's pretty nice and I'm even thinking of replacing my old one with this one since I think it works a lot better than the battery one that I have now. There were several different ones that seemed similar, this was mid-priced and well worth it.

nothing spectacular

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

Works ok. Seems to only sharpen one side of the pencil. Keep rotating your pencil for a good point.
