Lester's contract with Forest expired at the end of the season and boss Paul Hart decided not to offer him a new deal.
Blades boss Neil Warnock was delighted to have signed Lester and revealed he was a big fan of the striker.
"Jack has always been a player I have admired and I have tried to sign him on several occasions," Warnock told the club's official website.
"I think his desire and affection for the club will make him a good asset.
"But he still has a lot to prove because I feel he has underperformed over the last few years."
