Awesome little pencil sharpener
from Dardanelle, AR
This sharpener does exactly that, it sharpens. Without fuss & without hassle. I rarely use the electric sharpening feature but it comes in handy for unsharpened pencils. It has a nice bin to empty shavings too. I would suggest this as a pure convenience for anyone who does colored pencil drawings.
I love it
from North Carolina
I've been using the old manual sharpener all my life. When this one arrived I ran around sharpening every pencil in the house. I have no other electric one to compare it to and I've only had it for a week, but so far I'm thrilled.

The sharpener does not work well. It only turns a quarter turn at a time on battery mode. It does not shave the wood smoothly.I would not recommend this to a friend.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love the sharpener. I use colors pencil as a medium in my art and I have found this sharpener to be durable, precise yet easy to operate and perfect for a crowded desk. I just purchased my second Duet sharpener and am very pleased.
Chews up pencils
from Redmond, Wa
Unlike any other electric pencil sharpener, this has nothing to stop the sharpener when the pencil has gotten sharpened. It just continues to chew the pencil up. I could use it myself, but it is useless in a classroom where I need ti for expensive colored pencils. Kids won't stop sharpening and will just chew through the pencil.

Handy Dandy little sharpener great to travel with!
Battery Mode Does Not Work
from Northern California
The sharpener works well in manual mode only. Switching to battery operation turns the pencil around and around, but does not sharpen it. After using it manually for a few days I purchased an electric sharpener which works magnificently for me. I will either keep the manual sharpener for backup or give it away.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that this sharpener isn't working as it should. Please look for an email from a member of our Customer Care Team who will be in touch to further assist you.
