I have been searching for a decent electric pencil sharpener for YEARS. This one is amazing. Unlike the other "heavy duty" sharpeners, it actually holds up to 50 3rd graders using it multiple times a day. It sharpens a brand new pencil in about 10 seconds and resharpens dull pencils in about 2 seconds which is fantastic considering it was taking upwards of 30 seconds per pencil with my Bostitch and Xacto sharpeners (not to mention they came out uneven almost every time). The ONLY con to this sharpener (and I do mean only) is that it is pretty loud. I keep it at the back of my classroom, but it sharpens so perfectly that I don't even care how loud it is. This is a MUST buy for teachers!

I bought this pencil sharpener for my classroom. I use an electric pencil sharpener A LOT, and thought this powerful-looking model would work well for our classroom needs. However, in order to engage the sharpener at all I had to hold the shavings drawer tightly shut. This sharpener did not automatically stop sharpening when the pencil was sharp; it would sharpen up to the metal band if you did not remove the pencil. I may have received a defective sharpener, but I chose to try the next model down price-wise. I compliment the associates at my local Staples store, they were very helpful in granting my refund and assisting me in finding an alternative model of sharpener.

Serious sharpener

By 5grdTeacher

Comments about Staples® Power Extreme Electric Pencil Sharpener, Heavy-Duty, Black:

As an elementary classroom teacher, having a reliable, heavy duty pencil sharpener is a must. Just this year, my students have already gone through 2 medium use pencil sharpeners and I was getting really annoyed. I decided to invest in this sharpener and NOT let me students use it. It sharpens any pencil in 3 seconds, but you have to watch because it doesn't stop it self. You could burn through a whole pencil very quickly. It will also make the pencils a little to sharp of you are not careful. This product is silent, quick and reliable and I would recommend it for classroom use.

Disappointed for classroom use

Comments about Staples® Power Extreme Electric Pencil Sharpener, Heavy-Duty, Black:

I purchased this heavy duty pencil sharpener in October 2014. Originally, I was very pleased. I would sharpen 50 pencils each day as I teach Middle Science and wanted to have a stash to "trade" students when their pencil breaks. I did notice after a couple of months that it didn't feel the same. I am wondering if it will last the rest of the school year. I am the one using it and know that it isn't getting misused. I know there is a three year limited warranty so I will be checking into that.

Comments about Staples® Power Extreme Electric Pencil Sharpener, Heavy-Duty, Black:

This is the second Staples sharpener I have purchased for home. I purposely upgraded due to dissatisfaction with the performance of the first one. I still am not impressed and would not invest in another Staples brand.

Industrial Strength Sharpener

Comments about Staples® Power Extreme Electric Pencil Sharpener, Heavy-Duty, Black:

I teach hunter education in California and I needed a pencil sharpener which would hold up throughout the year and perform some large sharpening tasks. Each student is given a sharpened pencil when they arrive and they need to keep it sharp during the class and exam at the end. We have also used the sharpener for conferences where we give the pencils out to the participants. After 200 pencils, this sharpener keeps on going. It does get a little warm from all of the use but hasn't stopped yet. After relocating to a new area, I purchased another sharpener for my classes because I had to leave the other one with the team I left behind. I Highly Recommend this sharpener for heavy use people. It will not disappoint.

Power Extreme For Sure!

By Tracey

Comments about Staples® Power Extreme Electric Pencil Sharpener, Heavy-Duty, Black:

Several years ago, I purchased the 'light duty' Staples brand sharpener for home use. I use it most heavily at back-to-school time and more sporadically throughout the year. Don't bother with the 'light duty' one! Spend a little more (take advantage of sales...20% off what fits in the bag...and cashing in cartridge recycling cash back) and get this 'heavy duty' model. The 'light duty' sharpener barely sharpens one pencil before running out of power. It's so frustrating. Not sure if this is expected as they age, but it's definitely not overused. The Power Extreme sharpener is amazing. Just as it says...Power Extreme. Zip, zip...done. I'm no longer spending several minutes waiting for pencil to be fully sharpened. The only reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 is because it seems not to have a shut off when the pencil is sharpened. I need to remove it quickly so it doesn't get over sharpened.
