This so-called paper shredder would only be useful as a large paper weight. It certainly does not shred paper. It won't shred six sheets at a time as its description claims. It jams most of the time even when shredding only one sheet of paper. Don't waste your time and money on this!

I don't shred a lot so just needed a basic shredder. This one can not handle the 6 sheets it proclaims, or 5 or 4 or 3. It struggles with 2. The problem is the feed slot is not quite wide enough so when you insert a piece of paper, it starts to go in crooked, causing it to fold, causing the machine to jam. I tried putting the paper in every conceivable way and direction to no avail. I even tried to fold a single sheet in half to shred. Still ended up crooked. I spent more time unjamming than I did shredding so I gave up. I'm taking it back and hopefully the next model up will do a better job.

Although, it is only $20 after tax, please do not waste your $20. While we do shred paper, we shred all of our receipts once a month. The paper from the receipts just rolls around and around without dropping into the bin causing it to hang up quite frequently. It took me about 20 minutes of fighting with the machine before all of my receipts were actually shredded. Also, the motor is not that strong, and it is in general too small to be of any real use. Go for a bigger more expensive shredder.

Ok, same as everyone else, not a great shredder! I say that, even though it can shred, but their advertisement/claims are very inaccurate. So, if I read these other comments before purchasing, no I wouldn't have purchased this model. I purchased in-store, I only need it for my house, shredding occasional important stuff. However right now, I have a huge pile of papers this being my very first shredder ever. This WILL NOT handle 6 pages, nor 5 or 4 or 3, 2 pages at the MOST and yes, that pushes it's limit before getting jammed. The slot is exactly the width of a normal sheet of paper, so you just make sure you get in there evenly, not at an angle, or forget it. The wastebasket does get full very quickly, so if you're using it for a big job, dump it out extremely quickly to save yourself from more jamming headache. It will NOT take 72 shredded pages before it's full, that's not accurate either! This thing only works under 10 minutes before it over heats and stops. Then you have to wait about an hour for it to turn on again. If I was shredding one thing at a time, here and there it would probably be alright. So I will keep it for that, as that is my true intention for it's use. Shredded two plastic old ID cards (one at a time )I had just fine. If you want to buy an inexpensive, small shredder, and are looking to only use it for one or two papers at one use, then go ahead and purchase this shredder, it will do that job just fine. I hit "RECOMMEND" only for the EXTREME LIGHT DUTY work it WILL do. I do not suggest this for anything more than one page at one sitting/use! PS-I don't know about your view of the site, ,but for some reason I'm seeing this priced at over $100, it must be an website error or something, because you purchase it in-store for like $20!
