Don’t buy this. It’s terrible. Doesn’t sharpen at all. The pencil just spins. If I had the package I would return it.

Literally would give this zero or negative stars if possible. It’s a waste of money. I can’t get a single pencil sharpened, it’s a hassle. Please save your money.

I’m not one to ever write reviews, but this terribly made. A similar sharpener from a dollar store probably works better than this. The batteries don’t fit. Don’t waste your money.

Safety Hazard (Do NOT Buy, Batteries Explode In Container)

1 out of 5 stars
Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
GreenHunter - 2 months ago
Within 5 minutes of first adding batteries, we heard hissing and popping noises, the battery section heated up enough to burn me and when I opened the battery section again, the batteries had exploded and were leaking battery acid. It was terrifying. This product was an absolute safety hazard and I’m lucky I didn’t just use it and leave cuz it could have been far worse. I’ve never had a problem with the batteries before nor have I ever heard of something similar happening. The acid stained my floor.

Waste of money. It's hard to hold the pencil still enough for it to work and when it does it mangles the pencil. Its loud and trying to close the lid after putting in batteries was far too frustrating.

This product worked great at first but didn't last long. By the time the pencil is sharp enough it's usually half the original length if it's even usable. I got a free secondhand one that works better

Bought this in store before reading reviews and came to find it on the app because we love it so much I wanted to order a second! I’m surprised at all the bad reviews, I must’ve lucked out on a good one. Great value for the money and my kids love using it. Works for colored pencils well too.

sarahdg - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
This sharpener worked great for about 20-30 sharpenings and then it was terrible. The blade would no longer sharpen to a tip. It would struggle to sharpen a new pencil and then would never get down to the lead. Don’t waste your money. I even tried sharpening the blade with no luck.

Broke after a couple of uses. We purchased this sharpener for pencils and colored pencils for the kids, and it just didn't last. I brought this in September and it's almost November, so got almost a full two months worth. Stick to a regular electric pencil sharpener.

Doesn't sharpen pencils well, wasted a portion of my orange color pencil, and did not leave a fine sharpen to it, it leaves it delicate and the tip breaks off easily.

We bought this beginning of Aug for homework, it’s mid September and it stopped working. New batteries didn’t solve the problem. It must be jammed or something but I can’t figure out the problem. Didn’t last
