Good shredder for home shredding, not for heavy use though
Member Name: jkf11
Advantages: Cross-cuts, quick, easy to use, easy to empty
Disadvantages: Unsuitable for shredding large amounts of documents in one go
If you are after a shredder for occasional use at home then this is perfect. It takes 5 sheets at a time and cross-shreds so I doubt the most dedicated of criminal would be able to piece the documents back together! The sheets shred very quickly and the large collecting bucket can hold more than you would think by looking at it. To empty there are no catches you just switch it off and lift the top off.
This shredder also shreds credit/debit cards etc which is an added bonus. I feel this is more secure than just cutting them in half like the banks say. You just have to make sure you feed them one by one through the middle of the shredder. (There are markings on the top to indicate where to put them in).
I have had this shredder for about 2 years now and it's still going strong. If you find it isn't shredding/cross-cutting as well as it should, drizzle some olive oil into the opening where you put the paper and it'll work like new again.
If you are looking for a shredder that can be used continually for large amounts of shredding I would not recommend this product. It can get warm if used a lot and will automatically shut off until it has cooled down. I have only come across this once when I decided to shred a year's worth of documents in one session. For general shredding at home it works brilliantly, especially for the price.
Summary: Perfect for home use
