I bought this sharpener after the one I've had for 3 years went out. So far this school year the sharpener is working great. I have 22 students and they have to sharpen 2-3 pencils each morning and so far it's working perfect.

I used this product in a high school classroom. It sharpened pencils for one school year. It still works, however, it does not sharpen very well. Me and the students have to work the pencils in a certain way and push them in far to get a good point. It is an expensive sharpener that does not last long. I have gone back to traditional wall mount sharpeners.

Not worth it!
Looks great, but not worth the money. We started using it in September and by April it would no longer sharpen pencils. I was very disappointed. I thought because of the price I would be getting better quality but it is no better than the cheaper electric sharpeners. I would not recommend this product. Not worth the price. Wears out too fast.

Because it says commercial doesn't mean it's heavy duty
I bought this sharpener for the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year. I am the only one who is using it to sharpen student pencils as I use a drop off pick up system. Sad to say the sharpener can not handle the #2 pencils of today even the more expensive ones.( Colored pencils were never sharpened on this machine! ) The sharpener leaves half the pencil not sharpened.

This sharpener works really well. I love how fast it sharpens pencils. I'm very protective and won't let my students use it. They love the sharp points. I wish it would stop or light up when the pencil is sharp. The strong motor will keep on working until your pencil is a stub.
