AmazonBasics 10- to 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Paper/CD/Credit Card Shredder with Basket
This AmazonBasics 10- to 12-sheet cross-cut shredder with contrasting silver head and black basket comes with a separate throat for CDs and credit cards (shredded one at a time). This shredder offers the patented 'shred safe' feature, which will automatically shut the shredder down if foreign objects are inserted. The 8.7 " / 22 cm throat is angled for easy paper insertion and shredding. The shredder is designed for medium duty use, which corresponds to 25 to 50 passes or 600 sheets daily, and has a 5 minute on 30 minute off duty cycle. It features an integrated handle for the easy emptying of the wastebasket. The cross-cut confetti-like shred size is 2.17 " / 5.5 cm long and 0.22 " / 0.55 cm wide.
No hassle, quick operation
As you do not need to remove staples, you can quickly shred multi-paged documents (10 to 12 pages at a time). The shredder destroys credit cards one at a time. Use the reverse feature to clear paper jams. The shredder can be easily removed from the bottom wastebasket.
Special CD/DVD slot
Lift the safety lid and insert CDs or DVDs in to the slot one at a time. Hold the CD Destroyer/Reset button down. The blades will cut your disc in to four pieces.
- Shreds 10 to 12 sheets of paper in one go
- Destroys credit cards, CDs and DVDs one at a time
- 21 L wastebasket
- Shredder will automatically shut down if foreign objects are inserted
- Dimensions: 8.9 x 12.5 x 15.7 " / 22.6 x 31.7 x 39.8 cm
- Paper feed width: 8.7 " / 22 cm
- Warranty: AmazonBasics 1-Year Limited Warranty
Destroys CDs and DVDs
The shredder comes with a dedicated slot for destroying CDs, DVDs, and Blu Rays. Simply hold the disc by the edge and feed one at a time, releasing when shredding begins. The shredder will stop when the entire disc has been destroyed.
In auto mode, shredding begins once the sensor detects something to be shredded. Shredded paper then drops into the 4.8-gallon bin below, and manual reverse makes easy work of clearing any paper jams.
The cross-cut shredder will run continuously for 5 minutes before needing a 30-minute cool-down. If it shreds continuously beyond the max running time and begins to overheat, the unit will automatically shut off to protect the motor. For added safety, the shredder will also automatically shut off if it detects foreign objects.
The medium-duty shredder can handle 600 sheets per day, and it conveniently lifts off when it's time to empty the bin below.

However the unit is rated at 1.2A and is supplied with a 13A fuse in the plug yet the cable is a flat twin-core marked as HO5VVH2-F .75mm2 which is rated at 6A maximum. So if it has a major fault the cable will melt before the fuse blows. It's a 10 second job to change it - just lift the flap on the underside of the plug and drop in a 3A one instead.
My previous shredder gave up a while back and I had built up a pile of documents that needed shredded. Looked at a few on line and decided on this one. Not my favourite job but when I started I couldn't stop . This machine just eats anything you throw at it , em , paper or credit cards that is.
Highly recommended machine , unlike a strip shredder the pieces just fall into the bin so your not constantly either emptying it or pressing the shreds down.
Chomped through everything i've thrown at it so far. Can't fault the little beast.
The only thing I can say on the down side is, the Shredder is slow, only cutting 5 sheets, but what does that matter when the price is right and it does the job.
Very satisfied with this purchase
