4.0 out of 5 starsSharpening a pencil has never been easier
Reviewed in the United States on September 3, 2018
What you may like 1. well built, simple to operate 2. fully automatic (except cleaning) 3. Safe, unless the cover to access the sharpener is closed, the unit won't turn on. There is also a cover for the larger pencil sharpener hole to ensure little fingers don't get in 4. cleaning is easy 5. Rubber pads on the bottom keep it in place when sharpening pencils. Good design 6. Reasonable price
What you may not like 1. It didn't turn on automatically every time I inserted a pencil, and I had to reopen the cover and click it back in, the only reason it gets a four star.

This product is not worth the money. It worked one time and then stopped. I switched the batteries, emptied the shavings, everything I could think of. It just doesn’t work. It also doesn’t have any way to plug in, so if you’re out of batteries you’re out of luck. Pass on this product.
