Product Description

Aurora 8 Sheet Cross Cut Paper Shredder with Basket featuring Overload/Overheat Protection, Auto Start, and Manual Reverse to Clear Paper Jams

Amazon.com

Turn private documents and sensitive information into confetti at the rate of eight pages per minute with the Aurora Crosscut Paper Shredder. The shredder's stainless steel blades slice through folded paper, staples, paper clips, and even credit cards quickly and efficiently. To maximize the security of your personal information, the blades cut across and down, leaving one-fifth-inch-wide strips of paper. With an attached 125-sheet-capacity wastepaper basket, this shredder is a practical addition to any home or small office.

The AS890C 8 Sheet Light Duty Crosscut Shredder offers:
  • Stainless steel blades that cut through credit cards, staples and paper clips.
  • Cross-cut technology turns documents into confetti.
  • Shred rate of 8.36 pages per minute.
  • 125-sheet-capacity wastebasket.
  • Manual reverse mode for clearing paper jams.


Feed as many as 8 sheets of paper at a time into the shredder. View larger.


The AS890C has no problems with paper clips, staples, and credit cards.
Cross-cut Shredding for Better Security
Whether you're disposing of financial statements, personal information, or junk mail, this shredder's cross-cut technology offers high-security protection. Insert as many as eight pages into the 8.7-inch entry slot and watch through the viewing window as the paper is quickly sliced across and down into 1/5 inch scraps. Even if your documents are folded in half or riddled with staples, the stainless steel blades will quickly shred your documents so that you can dispose of them safely.

Perfect Size for Home or Small Office
The shredder's black color and moderate size (12 x 7 x 16 inches) make it a tasteful and practical addition to a small home or office space. A 59-inch power cord allows you to store it far from power outlets. When the time comes to empty the attached wastebasket, a full-bag indicator light will alert you. But with a 125-sheet-capacity wastebasket, you won't need to empty it often.

For maximum convenience, you can simply leave the shredder in auto start mode. Each time paper is inserted, a sensor will activate the blades. If more than eight pages are inserted at a time, the manual reverse mode can come in handy to clear a temporary paper jam. In case of heavy use, the shredder also features thermal overload protection to keep the unit from overheating.

Having read over some of the comments and ratings on this average size paper shredder, I haven't encountered the problems others have. The shredder activates easily once paper is introduced and I've not had a problem having to adjust how the paper was introduced to the activation mechanism. It's the perfect size for my small home office and the right color (black).

You know those pesky credit card offers that come to you through the mail all the time? Don't even bother opening them. They're not too thick for the shredding capacity and it'll save you time by only having to introduce one piece instead of multiples if you cut open the envelope.

Credit cards whip through it without hesitation. And the basket size is just right (I empty mine about every 10 days now).

Reliable. Great price. Perfect size. Works flawlessly. What's not to like?

I personally love this shredder! It does what it is supposed to do... shreds into small pieces. This is a crosscut shredder, not a confetti. I was moving and needed to get a lot of old mail (boxes worth) shredded before my move date. This little machine more than delivered on its' promise.

Do not overload the slot... 8 sheets is the limit and that is true. I try to keep it under that. It loves to groan along when you stuff too much in there. The shredding mechanism is very sharp and have nicked my fingers a couple of times when removing a jam. Does it jam often? NO... but it does happen. The reverse/unjam feature is a MUST! It does shred credit cards, paper clips and staples as it advertises. Again, it makes a very loud noise but accomplishes the feat. If you just have a normal mail load, you could probably go a month without changing the bin. I find it convenient to just keep on smooshing down the shreds. If you do not, your machine will jam!

Highly recommend the machine; do not know the longevity as of now. Does what it needs to do at a wonderful price.

One caveat... the darn thing tips too easily because the mechanism is on the top. In my home, that is a pain with 3 kids and 2 dogs running around. Shavings everywhere!! It also states in the manual that you should not shred labels or stamps of any kind. I have done it and it is functioning fine.

I've owned this shredder since 2009 and it's the bee knees! It will work for years reliably but make sure you don't put in any stickers or adhesive items otherwise the gears will get gummy. I rarely had jamming problems and it did get hot when I was doing massive shredding (ie nearly a full ream of old school papers) but otherwise I've been super satisfied with it. So much so that I brought it from Minneapolis to San Francisco with me!

This is the first shredder that has not broke or jammed up on me within 2 weeks of purchase. Shred per instructions and this will do the job. It holds a lot more than it looks too. Easy lightweight basket to empty. Not as loud as previous ones I have owned. I am very happy with my purchase. I compared prices before purchasing too.

I love this thing- it takes 8 sheets of paper extremely well, shreds everything down to 1/4" by 1" or so, even takes credit cards. The little window on the front helps you know when the bin is getting full, so you dont have to spend time removing the lid to find out.

This is a great little machine. It's fairly quiet and shreds credit cards with ease. It's solid and sturdy and my husband, who didn't think we needed one, uses it often.

I wasn't real happy with this shredder when I first tried it. No matter what i did the paper got stuck in the center. Its supposed to shred up to 8 sheets but even 2 sheets made the motor bind. I contacted the company and they sent me out another one totally free of charge. It works great and is just as good as advertised. I guess I had a lemon to begin with but the company took care of the problem easily and with out hassel. One of the best I have ever used.

Following product guidelines I NEVER inserted more than 4/5 pieces of paper at a time or even used it beyond twenty minutes and even used the proper shredder oil/paper and having now become somewhat of an expert on throw away shredders - This is no better than the rest and an absolute horror at the dreaded paper jam. Confetti shredders have a tendency to bulk and plug making it tedious work to un-jam. This was the worst of the bunch I've own lately.
Its only saving grace was when it did work (which was for about six weeks give or take) it worked well. That being said, six weeks isn't worth it.
Granted I have been doing quite a bit of shredding - still with proper use and not overuse as initally described it should have been able to handle the work load.
