AmazonBasics Paper Shredders
AmazonBasics Paper and Credit-Card Shredder for Home or Office
Shred paper documents into long, narrow strips with this AmazonBasics strip-cut paper shredder. The machine provides faster shredding, but with less data protection, compared to cross-cut and micro-cut shredders. A strip-cut shredder makes a great choice for shredding non-confidential documents like junk mail. It quickly turns paper into 1/4-inch-wide strips at a rate of 9.84 feet per minute.
Helps Protect Identity
Shredding documents has become an important part of identity protection. The AmazonBasics shredder helps reduce the chance of falling victim to the havoc and hassle of identity theft.
- Shreds multi-page documents (no need to remove staples)
- Destroys CDs, DVDs, and credit cards (one at a time, through dedicated slot)
- Auto start
- Manual reverse to help clear paper jams
- Thermal protection with auto shut-off
- Easy-to-empty bin
Shreds More Than Just Paper
There’s no need to remove staples or small paper clips from documents, and the shredder not only shreds paper, but it also eats through CDs*, DVDs*, and credit cards, rendering them useless for ultimate peace of mind.
*select shredder models
In Auto (on) mode, shredding begins once the machine detects something to be shredded, and then it stops automatically when shredding is complete. Shredded paper drops conveniently down into the collection bin below.
The Reverse function makes it possible to retrieve un-shredded or partially shredded documents, plus helps prevent paper from getting stuck, making it easier to avoid frustrating paper jams.
Thermal Protection with Auto Shut-Off
The shredder will automatically shut off to protect the motor if it runs continuously beyond its maximum run time and begins to over-heat.
