More secure than strip- and cross-cut shredders, this micro-cut shredder turns sheets of paper into tiny particles. It also destroys credit cards.

Reverse Function

Reverse Function

The reverse function makes it possible to retrieve un-shredded or partially shredded documents, plus helps prevent paper jams.

Thermal Protection for Safety

1.0 out of 5 stars Caught on fire.
By Jason on December 22, 2017
After about 6 months of use and shredding a minute or so of junk mail, I left the room and smelled something burning. When I returned I saw the plastic on the top melted. In the future I will opt for the more expense high quality one to have that fire safety piece of mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars I use it for vermicomposting.
By Amazon Customer on May 4, 2017
Good shredder. If it fits, it shreds. If it gets stuck, put it in reverse and smack the side of the shredder head. It will reverse the object back out. If it ever gets stuck shredding small stuff, take the cover off the bottom of the shredder head held on by two screws. Shake the head until the pieces fall out of that slot. Or shoot compressed air in there. Then run the machine in reverse for 30 seconds. This will warm the motor. I have shredded every Amazon box in small strips, appliance boxes, newspapers, mail, cereal box, pizza box, packaging box, and paper I've touched since owning it. I feed it to my red wrigglers once a month with table scraps and crushed shells. I have literally shredded entire pallets worth of cardboard through this thing. I shred a 40 gallon garbage bag a week in cardboard and random paper. Lube the blades with vegetable oil while running the machine in reverse, not shredder oil and don't use lubricant sheets. Otherwise if you use it for compost, the shredder oil is machine oil and you've contaminated your supply. Thicker pieces will shred but they will shred into strips. So keep in mind just because it fits, your thickness may exceed optimal security concerns. I shredded every single thing I could get my hands on. It does white paper fantastic, soda boxes pretty well, and everything is later digested by these worms. I found myself shredding things put out in the front of my library and they ate that too. Magazines, glossy paper, etc. So for my use? This is perfect. Short run time, but worth it. I got it during a lightning deal for $35. And I'd say for a person looking to become a vermpicoster, this is decent. If you have an Amazon prime account and order as much as I do, you will have a garage full of food for worms and carbon for compost in no time. I have something close to six cubic yards of shredded cardboard in huge bags, in refrigerator boxes, and in the worm bins. They can't get enough. Cool thing about this? Amazon can't switch to plastic packing because it would kill the earth and that means an unlimited supply for you. Get it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality, didn't last.
Reviewed in Canada on October 22, 2020
Had this unit just over 1 year. 5 stars for the micro cutting. 1 star for quality. 4 of the screws in the housing broke the plastic when I was lifting the unit off to clean the bin, rendering it unusable. No warranty now. Had to use JB Weld to glue the sucker together. Will never be able to open it now, but at least it works. Only lightly used for home use too. 👎🏻
