Will only give it 3 stars, since it arrived broken. The reason for breakage was that the little plastic tab attached to the door and which activates the shredder had broken off. The shredder will not work without it and gives a message that the door is not closed, even when it is. For such an important function, they could have made this small plastic piece sturdier than it is.. Amazon replaced the shredder and the actual functioning of the machine is fine, but I am mindful of this thin plastic tab when I open and close the door. I also want to note that the shredder is heavy.
