Our family has owned this unit for several years. It remains plugged in and ready to sharpen. I researched sharpeners fairly extensively before settling on this one. Had also tried a few others which had failed or clogged or had the motor die unexpectedly. So far this Teacher Pro Electric has done a great job! We have not stressed it, but it seems to be a solid performer sharpening each pencil quickly and dead on center. Huge capacity shaving storage compartment. Solid and heavy, it has a high build quality - perhaps more than a household needs, but appreciated!
Likely its best use is in a classroom - it has that feel to it, that it could easily withstand regular and long-term use.

We got a pencil sharpener that works and, after a couple of months in service, is still trimming away. As with any electric pencil sharpener, it pays to empty the shavings regularly and the front shavings drawer on this model makes that pretty easy. As for the sharpener itself, you do have to pay attention to the point and often give it a second try to get a clean trim. For the price, it seems just fine, is reliable, and does not take up a whole lot of space on the work counter. If and when this one wears out, we'll most likely buy another.

I am an elementary school teacher and I purchased this item for my classroom. I'm not going to lie, from the picture, I thought it was going to be smaller than it is, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. This thing can seriously sharpen! It sharpens pencils within a few seconds to the perfect sharpness and is very quiet. It has an automatic shutoff which is also nice. It has 6 different settings for various sized pencils, which is a great feature to have for the classrom. I love this sharpener and some of my fellow teacher friends will come into my classroom at the end of the day to use it!
