An Okay Sharpener, but not for My Classroom
August 12, 2019
I bought this sharpener for my 4th grade class and let them try it out, and it quickly became clear that it was not going to work well for us. I like the safety feature, but if you press the pencil down too far, it jams, and students can't seem to figure out the happy medium. It was also a little louder and more annoying than I was expecting. Maybe it's partly because we have a small room, but I was hoping to find something less obtrusive. I also like that it's cordless. It's just not going to work for what I need it for. I also am only rating it 3 stars because apparently the seller only accepts returns through UPS. I live in a rural area, so if I don't want to pay anything to return the item, I have to drive 30 minutes to the nearest UPS store. Not such a huge fan of that...
If more gentle people are using this sharpener and you live in a city (for free and easy returns), this is probably a great option for you! Otherwise, maybe not.
