Worth every penny!
This is the best sharpener I've ever used. By December, I had gone through 3 different sharpeners, including 2 electric and one manual wall mounted one, in my classroom. I ordered this model and it is unstoppable. It sharpens quickly, and without a lot of distracting noise. It also sharpens the entire tip of the pencil and not just one side. I highly recommend. I liked it so much that I bought a second one for my home office.
Size Inclusive Sharpener
Though the new school year is nearing, some kids wont be attending in-person classes... Thank you, Misss Rona. All joking aside, we needed a more dependable, permanent solution to our daughters pencil sharpening needs. You can't go wrong with X-Acto! We love that it (
Envy-worth sharpener solved my sharpening problems
This sharpener is quieter than my old, non-pro model. It sharpens the pencils with the decorative plastic wrappers. It stops sharpening when the pencil is pointed (no more endlessly standing at the sharpener while it eats a whole pencil). The shaving drawer is huge and easy to empty. When I got mine, all the teachers on my floor began bringing their pencils to my room to use it until they got their own!
Looks like a great product
I got this sharpener for the school class where my son goes. So far its first week it has worked well. Very smooth operation, silence and automatically stops when the pencil tip is sharp. I also liked the little detail of having four small suction cups on its bottom so it adheres to flat surfaces. So far the teacher and other class assistants love the sharpener. I hope it lasts for a while.
Quite Good So Far
Been using this pencil sharpener twice a day, average 50 pencils each time, for the past few weeks. So far it is working as expected. Pencils (even the cheap-o's) sharpen evenly and QUICKLY! I purchased this because one of the other teachers in the building picked one up last year and it is still working perfectly.
Best sharpener I've ever had!
This sharpener is the best I've had. it sharpens almost all pencils...excluding eyeliner pencils...to a nice point and stops on it's own. It's simple for all ages, from preschool to elderly. I would definitely recommend it for the price compared to other electric sharpeners.
This is a wonderful pencil sharpener. I've had electric sharpeners before, but none that sharpened so quickly and easily and precisely, and none that took different sized pencils. I am very pleased with its performance. The size is a little on the large because of the shavings receptacle , but because it holds so much, it doesn't have to be emptied very often, so I can complete a project with few interruptions.
The BEST pencil sharpener I have ever purchased!
The different size holes for any pencils or colored pencils is the BEST purchase I have ever made. It sharpens WITHOUT constantly breaking the tips and causing less usage. I would definitely recommend this product for those who use colored pencils or any other size of pencils.
I think it's fine.
We have a small (this is much larger than I thought!) X-ACTO electric sharpener at work and it sharpens perfectly. For my home/ school-aged kid, I'd hoped the large, pro version would be the same or better, but it's not. I like a really sharp pencil if I have to use one. This cuts off when it's sharp "enough." Would be great for a Kindergarten classroom, I suppose, but I wouldn't personally buy again. Pros: Sharpens quickly to its liking, quiet enough, large & easy to empty tray Cons: Needs sharper point I wish I could shove the pencil in there enough to MAKE it sharpen more, but it cuts off... it eats less pencil, but I prefer a sharper point than this delivers.
Just 20 Pencils?
I was excited when I picked up my new X-Acto Electric Pencil Sharpener. Teachers get excited over little things like this! I had a plan in place and X-Acto was going to defeat all classroom interruptions this school year! But as soon as I went to sharpen my brand new pencils for the new school year, it wasn't able to complete the task. I had only sharpened about 20 pencils right before the malfunction! I have heard some great things about this sharpener and was immediately disappointed! I am on my way back to Wal-Mart to return the one thing that was going to help smooth things over during the first week of school. Everyone's new pencils definitely needed to be sharpened, right? I also noticed that part of the wording on the sharpener had peeled off. It looked like it had been used because of how the print appeared on the front of the sharpener. Was this product refurbished? I'm not sure, but hope my next one lasts a lot longer than 20 pencils!
a great pencil sharpener
This is a great addition to my class supplies. It's quiet! It does a good job sharpening any type of pencil. I'm glad that I bought it and would recommend this for home or class use.
Rapid and leaves the pencil point clean and sharp
Attractive. Rapid. Leaves the point of the pencil point clean and sharp. Satisfies need of shapening pencils of different sizes. Easy to remove and discard the shapenings of the pencils.
Great for classroom use.
I've had this sharpener for 2 weeks. It works great. I don't let my students use it, though. Only the adults in the classroom may use it. I'd say over 100 pencils have been sharpened so far. It isn't very quiet, but works as it should.
X-ACTO Desktop Electric Pencil Sharpner
It works great, as well as expected. I only purchased this style, the option to select various pencil thickness, because I have many artist pencils of various thickness. I had to pay much extra for this one option though.
Excellent sharpener for those big pencils!
I could not believe the big difference between this new pencil sharpener was compared to my old reliable one...it took me half the time to sharpen the same amount of pencils!!!
Great addition to our distance learning classroom
Love our new pencil sharpener and you can't beat the price.
This pencil sharpener works well for the large beginner pencils we use in our 4K and 5K.
Great classroom sharpener
