Easy to use

With no need to remove staples, you can quickly shred multi-page documents (7 to 8 pages at a time). The shredder also makes short work of credit cards and CDs. Use the reverse feature to quickly and easily clear paper jams, and simply pull out the waste basket when it needs to be emptied.

Perfect for your home office

This lightweight and compact shredder features a convenient wheeled base making it easy to manoeuvre - so it is always within reach when you need it.

Security guaranteed

Typical shredders cut materials into strips (approx. 360 per A4 sheet). Our micro-cut shredder offers 6 times the performance - cutting paper and credit cards into tiny pieces (approx. 2235 pieces per sheet of paper), and giving you greater peace of mind for a fraction of the price of other professional micro-shredders.

Special CD / DVD slot

Simply feed CDs or DVDs into the slot one at a time and the blades will cut your disc into four pieces.

Special Credit Card slot

The blades micro-cut your credit card into tiny pieces for optimum security.

    I've literally just received this and put it together. Yes, it needs a bit of putting together as it has wheels. Also the shredder sits permanently on the base so that the bin can be removed easily for emptying. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to keep a bin liner in this as the bin fits snuggly into the base, but, yes, the bin liner is fine which of course makes it easier to empty.

    The paper shredding is really fine, tiny pieces. The credit card shredding is tiny too. The CD shredding is not as small, but it doesn't need to be. The are cut into about 4 pieces, which is sufficiently damaged to render them unreadable! If you don't want the writing on the CDs to be ready, you will need to sort that out before shredding I guess.

    The shredder is heavy, so its a good job you don't need to lift the lid in order to empty it (like my last one). Wheels are handy. Seems like an excellent purchase. It's the first time I've bought an Amazon brand, and, as I said, I've just got it, but so far so good. I would recommend it.

    Shredder arrived this morning, and now been able to catch up with 6 months of shredding.

    Whilst it says 8 sheets, actually 4-5 is more realistic, however I don't have an issue with that as this is largely paper dependant. Been constantly shredding for 5-10 mins, then allowing it to cool down for 30 mins or so.

    Credit card slot shreds well - the card is well and truly destroyed. Not tried the CD shredder.

    The shreddings are small as you would expect, and take up a lot less space than strip cut shreddings. The shreddings themselves are about 4mm x 10mm.

    It's not noisy when in use.

    The plastic of the collection bin is a bit flimsy and not what I would consider to be robust, however it will not be removed on a regualr basis, so hopefully wont be a problem. The next nearest micro cut shredder is about £40 more, so you pay your money and take your choice.

    Overall 5 stars as for £46 you can't complain.

    I had some reservations about this product. But needed one at the office rather quickly. This is amazing, it's small but does a perfect job, better than my older larger shredder. definitely would recommend this product

    Arrived with slight damage to the collecting box lugs (broken). Kept it and pleased with the shreader. Don't have to empty as often as my previous shreader due to micro-cut shreading. From memory I don't think the Amazon description tells the potential purchaser the capacity (in litres) which is unhelpful.

    Arrived yesterday & was well packaged. I found no problem putting the unit together. When I put the first CD into the machine to shred, as it started up, a piece about two inches long with a very sharp point, flew back out of the machine & hit me in the face. Fortunately I was not injured because it was the flat area of the piece that struck me. If the sharp point had struck me, it would probably have pierced my flesh & could have caused a serious injury. However I continued shredding CDs, stepping back as soon as I inserted the disc and they all went through without further problems. So this near serious accident, may well be put down to first time use. I shredded 38 discs in five minutes, each disc was cut into four pieces. I have not tried shredding paper or credit cards yet. I am very pleased with the performance so far, but just be aware that there may be the odd piece that flies out when a disc is inserted, therefore it is best to take precautions.

    Works very well and cuts into minute pieces.
    Bin is a bit flimsy but OK.
    Paper feed slightly awkward until you get used to it.
    Overall good value.

    I've only had this a couple of weeks but so far it's been great. It chews through sheets of paper with ease and the shreds are tiny.

    I've tried the credit card and CD shredder, they both work well. The CD shredder cuts it into strips about one inch wide, if you have any writing on the CD that you want it hide then cross this out first.

    The pull out draw is useful, it makes emptying quick and easy.

    For the money this is a great product. A good reasonable size, not too big and cumbersome for a home use product. Light weight and easy to move. We are not heavy users but had a lot of shredding due to old shredder being useless, time consuming and too small. This machine was super quick and a bonus is that you do not need to remove staples. Had to let it rest every now and again which you would do with many of the home use machines. We are now at the stage that we keep it plugged in and when passing just put any shredding that need done through it no problem. Sounds sad to say but old one was so bad and kept stopping, and staples needed removed that the shredding built up, this one is 'enjoyable' to use and practical, therefore no back log of shredding. It also has a slot for credit cards etc and whiz zed through an old one no problem.
