Member’s Mark Micro Cut 18 Sheets Shredder
This product was recommended by Shantay Williams from Shantay205
As a realtor I have to handle lots of confidential information. My clients and I have piece of mind know their information is safely destroyed when no longer needed. This shredder is quieter than my previous shredder. I also love that the shred pieces come in a removable bin compared to me having to remove the actual shredder off to empty the shreds like my previous shredder. This one also has rollers which makes it much easier to move around. I also love the price. I think it’s very affordable compared to other shredders
Amazon Basics 8-Sheet High-Security Micro-Cut Shredder
This product was recommended by Shiv Gupta from Incrementors
The product is worth investment. Whereas some other tested shredders jammed or emitted a burning smell after a few minutes, the eight-sheet Amazon Basics ran trouble-free well past its five-minute runtime as we constantly fed it batches of paper. It tore through about 360 pages before the bin was full. As compared to others, this shredder chomps documents into tiny shreds measuring around 5/32 by 15/32 inches, making any sensitive paperwork all but impossible to reassemble. It can also deal with old plastic credit cards, and it has a separate slot for data DVDs, which helps reduce wear and tear on the main shredder gears.
Fellowes Powershred FEL3227901 Shredder
This product was recommended by Charles McMillan from Stand With Main Street
I have been using this since last year and it surely helped me to eliminate clutters. It has a 27-liter capacity, doesn’t jam, and uses a cross-cut mechanism that allows you to slice and dice anything you feed into it. It is 100% jam-free so you don’t have to worry about wrestling it to pull out a paper that got stuck. Also, it has a Safesense Technology that automatically turns the unit off once it senses that you have accidentally put your finger on it.
Fellowes Powershred 79Ci Paper Shredder
This product was recommended by Andrew Winters from Cohen & Winters
I love this shredder for my home office because as an attorney I have a lot of paper to shred every day. This one is able to shred about 14 pages at a time, which is pretty great for a home office shredder. It also has a “jam-free” promise, which is huge for anyone that has dealt with the frustration of a jammed paper shredder.
Bonsaii 14-Sheet Cross-Cut Heavy Duty Paper Shredder
This product was recommended by Chris Riley from USA Rx
I like it because it is reasonably priced and quiet. It can run for up to 30 minutes at a time and can cut through staples and credit cards.
AmazonBasics 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder
This product was recommended by Alexandra Seagal from Animalso
I like that as the name suggests I can also use it to shred CD’s and credit cards. I also like that it is small enough to fit on my desk and that the pullout bin makes disposing of the shredded paper super easy.
Bonsaii Paper Shredder
This product was recommended by Darrian Wilkins from Kitchen Fold
I like how this shredder works since it does not jam easily. With the right amount of papers like 5 or 6 pieces is still possible to shred. Some shredders have the 5 minute limit for shredding. However, this one can continuously shred papers without worrying about the 5-minute limit.
