Rated 4 out of 5 by delighted from Quick & to the Point! I really like that this pencil sharpener is relatively quiet. II allow my students to use the pencil sharpener and I like that it has an auto-stop which prevents the children from over-sharpening their pencils. I definitely need that in my 1st grade classroom! There are 6 holes for different sizes of pencils. I almost wish there weren't! My kiddos are always messing them them. It appears to be a heavy duty pencil sharpener and my students are loving to sharpen their own pencils right now. There is a 10 year warranty on this pencil sharpener... According to the packaging, certain limitations apply... I can't imagine any pencil sharpener lasting more than a year in my classroom. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by rioshoneybaby from Westcott iPoint Heavy Duty Sharpener great product Solid sharpener, absolutley works well on all pencils that I tried, from normal #2's to colored pencils. The thickness doesn't matter. What I noticed is that the pencils sharpened with a minimum of effort, in that I didn't need to push the pencil hard into the back of the sharpener. Merely holding the pencil lightly in the slot was all that was necessary, and the sharpener therefore only removed the minimum necesary to sharpen the pencil. The pencil lasts far longer this way. The receptacle for the pencil shaving is certainly large, after sharpening 10 pencils, i barely covered the floor of the pencil shaving receptacle. The Westcott iPoint Heavy Duty School Sharpener is certainly worth it, and lives up to its name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deb109 from Best Pencil Sharpener I have ever used! I have bought so many pencil sharpeners in the past and none of them have stayed sharp for more than a few pencil sharpenings. This Westcott iPoint electric pencil sharpener is fantastic. It sharpens pencils very quickly and evenly and seems to be staying sharp. I also like the easily adjustable size guide. It is very heavy, which keeps it from moving around during use. All in all a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Krysttie from The Best! This has to be the best pencil sharpener. It sharpens any type of pencil with precision. I even used it on my colored pencils and did great. I love the automatic stop feature! I also loved that it has the different sizes. My son had primary pencils and it was hard to find a sharpener. I had to send a box to school for the teacher to sharpen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VPStech from Awesome sharpener!! This sharpener is perfect for our Kindergarten class. It fits many size pencils, which is great for the larger Kindergarten sized pencils. It is quiet, not like the old noisy ones. The best part is that it automatically stops when the pencil is sharp! Gone are the days of students grinding their pencils into stubs in a single sharpening!

I have used numerous sharpeners for class instruction over the years. This sharpener can accommodate many sizes of pencils and automatically stops when the pencil is sharpened. This is a wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sherice from Great product! This is a great addition to my classroom. I am able to trim pencils and have them ready for the students to use in a timely manner. I love the feature of being able to use different pencil sizes. I teach Preschool and we use the larger pencils. It makes my job as a teacher easier and that is a big plus.

Once I emptied the shavings, it no longer works. What could be the issue?
It could be possible that some leftover shavings are preventing the door from closing properly which would prevent the machine from activating. If you need further assistance, please feel free to send an email to [email protected]

Can you get replacement blades? I just bought mine at the beginning of the school year. I k=notice my pencils were no longer sharpening and then blades look worn. I hate to buy another new sharpener.
Thank you for taking the time to write to us. As this Westcott product is imported from overseas, unfortunately we do not have replacement parts for this product. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

What kind of safety mechanism is used to keep the blades from turning on when the shavings bin is removed? My last sharpener had a piece of plastic sticking out of the back of the bin and it snapped off.
To assure the blades remain off while emptying the shavings bin, please unplug the sharpener.
