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.

Frustration-Free Packaging

This AmazonBasics product features Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging that is recyclable. It comes without excess packaging materials, such as hard plastic clamshell casings, plastic bindings, or wire ties. The packaging is designed to be opened without the use of a box cutter or knife, and it will protect your product just as well as traditional packaging. Products with Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging can frequently be shipped in their own boxes, without an additional shipping box, saving on resources and reducing waste. In addition, the packaging materials that we do use are easily and frequently recycled, composted or reused by our customers, and all the inks and dyes are biodegradable.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money 13 Jun 2013
    By Sphinxy
    Verified Purchase
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says 2 Oct 2013
    By Rob P
    Verified Purchase
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Home/Small Office Shredder 3 Nov 2013
    Verified Purchase
    I've done quite a lot of shredding with this. Of course you can't put a phone book through it, but it will easily handle the 8-sheet recommended limit. It's probably better to feed a maximum of 4 to five sheets at a time though.

    The shredder is pretty quiet, and easily chomps through staples and credit cards. The resulting shred is small enough to provide more than adequate security for the average home or office environment.

    I used it continuously to shred a pile of documents about 30mm thick, with no overheating or jamming problems, though this isn't recommended.

    For the price, this is an excellent piece of kit.

    5.0 out of 5 stars good purchase 29 Nov 2013
    Verified Purchase
    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.

    Much better than my previous shredder in every way. Holds a lot in the pull out storage basket. Easy to operate and much quieter than my last shredder. I would recommend it.

    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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Efficient Shreader 18 Aug 2013
    By Whirlow
    Verified Purchase
    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.
