We always have so many pencils / Grey & Coloured - that need sharpening & this is such a brilliant ‘must have’ gadget. It makes sharpening so much easier and faster, even the kids don’t mind doing the sharpening now (bc apparently “this is so much more fun than a boring pencil sharpener” and they really are sharpened in no time. Can also be used ‘manually’ if you have no batteries to hand. It takes 2 AA batteries.
The shavings are easily emptied as well by twisting to ‘unlock’ and then you simply twist back to lock. It does include instructions as well as a bonus spare sharpener blade insert.
What I really love is that you simply push the pencil down (not with too much force) it then stops when it is fully sharpened – I think that’s brilliant – no guessing, everything done for you. Great sturdy quality & I’m so happy we finally have one of these.
