- Cross-cut shredder with 7-gallon pullout bin
- 24-sheet capacity (no need to remove staples)
- Destroys credit cards, CDs, and DVDs (one at a time)
- Backed by an AmazonBasics 1-year limited warranty
Destroys CDs and DVDs
Inserted one at a time into the designated area, CDs, DVDs, and Blu Rays are cut into pieces rendering them useless and credit cards are micro-cut into tiny pieces for complete peace of mind.
In auto mode, shredding begins once the sensor detects something to be shredded, and auto reverse helps avoid paper jams.
The cross-cut shredder will run continuously for up to 25 minutes before needing a 60-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.
The shredder’s large-capacity pullout bin holds up to 7 gallons or about 270 sheets of paper, which means more time shredding and less time emptying. LED indicators offer at-a-glance convenience for Standby, Overheat, Overload, and Door open, while smooth-rolling wheels help ensure effortless placement.

Top customer reviews
-- Very powerful motor takes on the most difficult shredding tasks with ease. Runs a long time without over-heating.
-- Significantly better than average user controls and machine status indicators.
-- Included wheels are easily removable for those who want such a machine to stay in its place.
-- Emptying shredded paper bin is EXTREMELY difficult because the wide from machine cover is attached to the smaller width bin.
-- Input paper slot is only 8-1/2 inches wide. Most other shredders in this machine's class accept at least 9-inch or wider paper.
-- Access to shredder mechanism for period oiling is EXTREMELY difficult.
BOTTOM LINE: Very good product in its price and performance class, but better products in this class are available.
Pro: Quiet, plus it sounds like it's actually eating the paper -- a very satisfying sound. With a 24 sheet limit, it's difficult to over-feed. Took care of a 9" stack in no time.
Cons: The bin has a tall front wall, but is short on the other three walls. Unless you're careful to remove the bin before it's over-full, shreds will fall out the back and into body of the shredder that holds the bin.
If there are ANY shreds in the body that holds the bin, then the bin will not shut and the shredder will not run. Keep a vacuum cleaner handy. (The Fellows had structural compartments instead of a flat bottom, so for that machine, it was not a problem.)
The mouth of the shredder is only a smidgen larger than 8 1/2", so unless the papers are stacked neatly, they will not feed.
Overall a good product, but could use some tweaking -- Amazon engineers, are you listening?
Finished the forty long bankers-boxes, and the shredder is still smiling. It's eaten an additional ten long bankers-boxes of financial records with no problem. The only additional substantive comment is that this shredder has yet to over-heat. My earlier Fellows would over-heat after about fifteen minutes, then take 30 minutes to cool down. This shredder went through an 18" stack in about 45 minutes with no problem. Also, I can't praise the 24 sheet limit too highly. If you have any folded statements -- bank, phone, cable -- you won't have to unfold them to shred them.
Drawbacks are: (1) The manual says never to insert envelopes with windows (of which I get plenty of such in junk mail). (2) It feels a bit basic, plastic feel, and not as refined as some (especially compared to significantly more expensive shredders), most notably with the buttons. (3) It still audibly stresses a bit as you pack more in it (like most shredders of its caliber). (4) It doesn't automatically turn off like some energy efficient models (but it is easy enough to use the big button). (5) It is not 100% jam-proof, so don't expect miracles, but it has jam prevention features that should help. (6) The bin isn't as big as you might think looking at the front door because the door extends a bit higher than the bin itself. These are not really flaws in its design, just what to expect at its tier. It is still 1/3 the price of more expensive tiers that may offer more refinement.
I own and love my Fellowes 125Ci at the next tier, but that is in another league and price point. This strikes a balance in the middle. It seems much better than my old Royal Confetti Cut under-the-desk shredder that it will replace in another room. Remember to oil your shredder routinely (once a month or every time you empty the bin). I use Fellowes Shredder Oil (35250) that came with my Fellowes shredder. The AmazonBasics shredder didn't come with oil or bags out of the box, but it says you can use shredder oil or just vegetable oil.
Remember to oil your shredder.
