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....Read complete review

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 :(

Worked for 1 year.

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

When I bought this item, it worked well. I'm a college student & like very sharp pencils. Today, while attempting to use it, the motor seized up (there was noise, but no sharpening going on). I thought that maybe the pencils I used were the cause of the breakdown (the lead had broken off & the wood was "sharpened"). I did what I could to clean out the system, but it still wouldn't work. I tried sharpening the pencils in a small, battery-operated unit I take to school, & the cheap ones would not sharpen, but the more expensive ones did. So, either the cheap pencils damaged the unit or the warranty ran out just before the unit died (or a combination of both). Have to buy a replacement now (don't know if I'll buy another one like this).

Terrible, please avoid.

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

Does not sharpen evenly and lead often breaks before pencil is completely sharpened.
