You probably have read about my dislike of electric pencil sharpeners. I just haven't found one that lasted for any length of time. They all over heat once I sharpen a dozen pencils?!?!?! However, my favorite pencil company now has an electric pencil sharpener!!! I sharpened a dozen pencils to perfection in the blink of an eye. My only "issue" is that the holding tank for the pencil shavings is a bit small for sharpening mass amounts of pencils. Twelve made it pretty packed...two dozen I had to empty it twice. My hope is they make a classroom size one!! None the less..it is a good product made by a great company. It will be sold on Amazon from what I understand in the next month or so...keep an eye out for it!
