AmazonBasics 6-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder

Quickly Shreds Confidential Info

Thoroughly shred multi-page documents (up to six sheets at a time) with this AmazonBasics cross-cut shredder. The machine quickly turns paper into strips measuring 7/32 by 1-27/32 inches. Use the shredder to destroy ATM receipts, credit-card bills, mortgage statements, pay stubs, insurance packets, and other old or unwanted info. It will even shred credit cards (one at a time), and there’s no need to remove staples or small paper clips.

Helps Safeguard Your Identity

Shredding important documents has become a valuable component to protecting your identity. The AmazonBasics shredder minimizes your chances of falling victim to the havoc and hassle of identity theft. From document-heavy tax season to day-to-day bills and junk mail, the shredder offers exceptional convenience and helps prevent your personal info from going public.

The AmazonBasics cross-cut shredder provides the best compromise between price and performance. Choose the cross-cut shredder when you need to stay on budget but are looking for more security than that of the strip-cut shredder.

Details

  • Cross-cut shredder with 3.8-gallon bin
  • 6-sheet capacity (no need to remove staples)
  • Destroys credit cards (one at a time)
  • Backed by an AmazonBasics 1-year limited warranty

Destroys Credit Cards

Inserted one at a time into the designated area of the shredder, credit cards are completely destroyed, offering valuable peace of mind.

Easy Operation

In auto mode, shredding begins once the sensor detects something to be shredded. Shredded paper then drops into the 3.8-gallon bin below, and manual reverse makes easy work of clearing any paper jams.

The cross-cut shredder will run continuously for 2 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.

Perfect for light use in a small business or home office, the cross-cut shredder conveniently fits under a desk or other workstation for easy access throughout the day. Even more, the shredder removes effortlessly when it's time to empty the bin.

It's shreds credit cards too!
Crystal
This shredder doesn't shred 6 sheets at a time - 2 go through fine and 3 slows it down a little.
Kathy
I would recommend it for home use or small office use.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've had a few paper shredders over the years, and they've ranged from pure carp to good in performance. I only use it to shred my personal documents and occasional credit card, so I've never spent that much on one. I was intrigued to see that Amazon had their own brand, and having been satisfied with some Amazon Basics cables and such in the past was eager to get my hands on this shredder. I will point out a couple of things I noticed about this particular item that was different from others I've tried over the past. First of all, I really like the diagonal cross cutting instead of the straight line cutting my old one had. The diagonal cutting keeps the paper from jamming in the blades as was the case with my old one. I have shredded documents six pages at a time and this little guy had no problems chewing them up. I also like the feeder shielding on the top, which keeps things from falling directly into the shredder. This is a perfect shredder for basic home needs.

I want to preface this review by saying that I purchased the AmazonBasics 12-Sheet High Security Micro-Cut Paper/CD/Credit Card Shredder with Pullout Basket, and that thing is absolutely wonderful. I am spoiled with that thing by comparison, but I needed a small shredder for a second location where I don't need to shred a bunch of documents. That led to this purchase.

This is a smaller shredder with a smaller capacity waste bucket that the shredder mounts on top of. you can use a plastic bag inside to catch all the waste. It is a standard crosscut that cuts thin short strips, but not as fine as the micro-cut. It was able to cut 6 pages of 20lb paper without any problem, but it slows a little to do so- no big deal. It seems like it has good power and might be able to do more in a single pass, but I don't want to chance this- that is what the bigger shredder is for.

My impression is that this small shredder will fit the intended purpose for light duty use- a couple of papers here and there. It is priced at a steal of a deal at $30, especially if you have amazon prime and the thing ships to you in 2 days or less- shipping along on a similar package would cost about $12 bucks by UPS Ground...not Second Day Air. If you have a bunch of shredding to do, consider the bigger shredder- AmazonBasics 12-Sheet High Security Micro-Cut Paper/CD/Credit Card Shredder with Pullout Basket. That thing is like a paper grinder- works well and makes a neater generated paper waste that pours out of the can.

I bought this to shred some extra personal documents I had around the house and it works great. After I opened the box I put it to the test. I did not test the 6 sheet limit, but I did run around 200 sheets through it within the first hour. I also shredded 3 credit cards. No issues and it shredded everything making it unreadable. This would be a great shredder for anyone looking for a personal shredder.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We've had many shredders in the house and this is comparable to any of those. For people who appreciate protecting your personal information, having a cross-cut shredder is a must. As I can personally attest, it is possible to tape together a receipt or other important document that you accidentally shredded in a standard linear shredder. However this is impossible in a crosscut shredder as the pieces are way too small to do anything with. It also makes disposal of the shredded paper easier as the smaller shredded pieces pack closer together than the longer strips.

As with any cross-cut shredders, it is louder than the normal linear shredder. Also you will need to periodically oil the cross-cut knives so that fed paper doesn't bind, the shredder doesn't overheat, and just to ensure proper working order. This is standard with any cross-cut shredder as even the larger office shredders require periodic lubrication. I can also attest that the shredder cuts right through staples as well as credit cards.

As far as price goes, the $29.99 Amazon Basics shredder is somewhere in the middle of all the 6-sheet cross-cut shredders that are offered on Amazon. There are some shredders that sell for as little as $20 while there are others that sell for more than $40. To me, all of them seem to have the same functionality although I assume that the lower priced ones shred slower and have cheaper construction.

All told, the Amazon Basics 6-sheet Cross-Cut Shredder definitely does what you need it to do. It has no problem chewing through six sheets at a time and can do it quickly. Although it is somewhat loud, this comes with having a cross-cut shredder - they are all loud. Finally the basic construction of the shredder head and the waste basket are more than adequate. Its a nice unit and I would certainly buy it again.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This shredder works well for the money. It is on the loud side and doesn't sound real smooth so I'm not sure how long it will last but so far it has done pretty well. It is rated for 6 sheets. I loaded 6 standard pieces of copier paper and it did seem to strain and the motor slowed down quite a bit but it shredded them fine. A credit card was no problem . The size of the shredded pieces are significantly larger than my other cross-cut shredder so you may be able to make out sensitive data or reassemble the pieces into a document more easily. So if you are shredding extremely sensitive data, you may want to consider something the shreds into smaller pieces. For home use, it should be fine. The size of each shredded piece is 3/16" x 1-3/4".

Overall, this is a decent shredder for the price and a worthwhile purchase for home or small business use.
