Only shapenens once pencil at a time! - Review by Simmerjm

I bought this unit thinking I would be Abel to sharpens a few pencils ever 5 minutes or so, instead I have to wait maybe 10-20 minutes before it will sharpen again. I am at my wits end as this was rated so high. I am beginning to think I got a defective one. I wish Bostichs customer service was more helpful and perhaps replace the unit for a functional one!

Awesome Sharpener - Review by Jenny

I've had this sharpener for 4-ish years. I have never had a problem with it. It has never jammed. It has never stopped when it shouldn't have. I mostly write with wooden pencils of different sizes and shapes and use the sharpener several times a day. Best website to buy pencils The selector dial fits all the sizes and shapes I need.
I love that the sharpener stops when the tip is perfectly sharpened. The little suction cups on the bottom are a great little feature.

I am very very happy with this sharpener.

Not so good. Didn't last 4 months - Review by rhranch

The automatic sharpener will not stay on long at all. I have cleaned it out, I do not let children use it. I'm pretty disappointed.

Fantastic sharpener! - Review by EJ

I have had this sharpener for 4 years now and it still works great! A few small issues that may explain the other reviews above - if a small piece of lead gets stuck in the sharpener it can cause the sharpener to incorrectly see the pencil as sharp and stop working. Or if the kids push the pencil in too far (happens frequently) it will stop sharpening to prevent the motor from burning out. And if the tray that collects the shavings isn’t pushed in all the way it will not work at all (I’m assuming this is a safety feature). I have yet to change the blades on it. It still sharpens great!

Lasted a month - Review by mytmax98

I paid $90 for this sharpener at a teacher supply store. There wasn't a thing on the box that I thought was negative. I put it in my classroom. The kids loved it. This lasted 4 weeks. Now, it sharpens for 1 second before the auto shutoff feature kicks in. Waste of $90. I will try the warranty and see if I can get another one, but this seems like a bad product.

Poor quality - Review by Pgoodwin

This sharpener worked great for about 4 months. I thought because it got used a lot I just needed to replace the cutter. That did not help at all. It will not sharpen anything now. I feel like I wasted a lot of money on this one.

Great Sharpener - Review by Mike

This sharpener impressed me right out of the box. The look and metal finish are great. The sharpener is very fast and quiet. We have used this mostly for colored pencils and it works great. The sharpener stops itself once the pencil is sharpened and the glow light comes on too. There are 6 different settings for multiple sized pencils which is a nice added feature. We use this at home but as the other reviewer states the cutter is replaceable so schools can use this and just buy a new cutter if the old one gets dull instead of buying a whole new sharpener. This machine is substantial and looks like it will last a long time!

Perfect for my classroom - Review by Tonya

I choose this sharpener mainly because of the replaceable cutter. I plan to swap it out every year or so in my classroom and have a *new* sharpener! Its very rugged and tough, perfect for my classroom!
