5 Best Paper Shredders

BEST OF THE BEST
BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK
Bottom Line
A powerful cross-cut shredder that makes short work of bulk projects. High-security shredding performance. Excellent product.
If security is a primary concern, micro-shredders like this one are the way to go. We like this machine's total destruction of credit cards and CDs.
Capacity of 18+ sheets. Exceptionally long shred cycle. May be too much machine for casual users, but small business owners love it.
High security (but low capacity) for a low price. A decent choice for those with minimal shredding needs.
An affordable workhorse that gets the job done quickly and easily. Will satisfy the needs of most home users and is a great buy for those on a budget.
Pros
Can shred for an extremely long time without needing to cool down. Generous shred output bin (six gallons). Sensor prevents over-feeding.
Micro-shredding enhances security. Completely destroys credit cards and CD/DVDs. Quiet.
Powerful shredder with 40-minute duty cycle. Front-loading feeder makes it easy to use under a desk. Ideal for bulk shredding.
Micro-cuts paper into indecipherable confetti. Exceptionally affordable. Quiet operation.
Handles 8 sheets per pass effectively. Destroys credit cards. See-thru bin makes it easy to tell when it is full.
Cons
Priced and designed for small to medium office work. Caster wheels are challenging to install. Heavy.
Relatively short shred cycle (eight minutes). Micro-shredding blades require more processing time per sheet.
Paper must be aligned precisely to fit narrow feeder. Clearing a jam can be challenging. Too much capacity for home office.
Frustrating two-minute shred cycle before overheating. Can only shred a few sheets at a time.
Some users report it jamming with more than 5 sheets of paper.
