AmazonBasics Paper and Credit-Card Shredder for Home or Office
More secure than a strip-cut shredder, this AmazonBasics cross-cut paper shredder slices through documents diagonally in both directions, turning sheets of paper into small paper particles. It can accommodate multi-page documents, and there’s no need to remove staples or small paper clips first.
Destroys Confidential Info
Perfect for home or office, the cross-cut shredder works well for destroying pay stubs, bills, receipts, bank statements, medical records, and other private documents or personal data.
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 credit cards and CDs/DVDs (select models)
- Reverse function to help clear or prevent 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 the 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.
