I’ve never had an OfficePro Electric Pencil Sharpener before. I am used to using the manual ones. But with the office pro electric one, you can sharpen a lot more in less time. To start off you do need 4 AA batteries but the good news is they are included with the sharpener! The side of the sharpener comes off to put the batteries into it. The sharpener does have some weight to it, so it won’t knock over easily. The tray attaches very firmly to the bottom of it, so you do not have to worry about it opening and the sheddings spilling everywhere. The next good thing about this is that it is super safe sharpener to have around kids. It has an automatic shut off, so when the pencil is sharp the blades stop and also when the tray is open the blades do not run either. If you are like me and don’t like the tray to get dirty, just wash the bottom clear tray part with some soap and water and let it air dry before putting it back on. It is not super quiet, but isn’t as loud as some other electric pencil sharpeners, it kind of reminds me of the ones we used to have in school, but this one does not chew the pencil down like they used to. It makes the tips nice, and sharp. The machine also comes with a lifetime replacement guarantee which is awesome. They will replace the sharpener if anything is wrong with it for free. I am very happy with it and will continue to use! Would make a great gift for any teachers out there.
