This pencil sharpener's cutter blade angle is rather shallow, so I cuts the pencils at a deeper angle than other sharpeners with similar Helical spiral cutters.
So, I you have to sharpen your color pencils a lot, especially the soft-wood, soft-core type, you end up using up a lot in size/length - if you use a lot of special (EXPENSIVE) coloring pencils, you end u having to replace them more often, than with manual or variable pitch sharpeners
I ended up returning this model, reluctantly, and purchased a Westcott HALO electric sharpener, which has a single titanium coated helical blade, and I've found it to have a good balance between pencil point length and still a pitch that does not eat up my pencils too fast.
LATELY I have a PROBLEM that sometimes it sharpens uneaven which makes the ready sensor stop the machine when the wood is pointy but no lead visible at all, I have to turn the pencil and put it in again to fix it
