      Not the best thing since sliced bread!

      I bought this shredder as it was on offer at my local supermarket and thought it would be easy to shred my documents rather than burn them.

      The shredder itself is easy to use. It is essentially a bucket with a motor sat on top that you feed paper through. One of the few advantages of this shredder is that it is quite small, so for storage purposes it is a lot easier. However its small size is also a slight hindrance as this also means that the bucket itself holds less. This is not a big issue - I'm just lazy.

      The shredder however only takes 6 pieces of paper, which when you have a few takes a while to feed through. The other disadvantage is that you can only shred so many pieces at a time and then you have to let the machine cool down. When you can only shred 6 pieces of paper at a time and then have to let the machine cool after 2 minutes of shredding it does become tiresome. The shredding itself serves its purpose, the documents are shredded, however I've found the strips they are shredded into are quite wide. Having since used another shredder I have since found that the cross cut shredders make a much better job of destroying personal documents.

      Overall the machine did its job, but for me I found it slow to use. It also stopped working completely after 6 months of infrequent use therefore I had to get another.

      Would I recommend it? Not really. For a little extra money you can buy one that takes more sheets and cross cuts them.
