The cover of this shredder (where the cutting mechanism is) is very heavy and you need to use both hands to take it off. However, this is the best shredder that I have ever had and is more like a commercial shredder that you would see in an office than a personal one - it's powerful and fast but very quiet.
I love the fact that if you take out the red plastic key that it won't run (even if it's plugged into the electric). This is a great safety measure for those with kids or pets.
I love this shredder!

I bought this shredder about a year ago. I was impressed with the power of the motor and how fast it worked. But that's where it ended. My complaint here does not just apply to this shredder, but any shredder where the base unit sits ON TOP of the canister. Here's why:

1. The base unit in VERY heavy. This means every time I picked it up, I had to make certain I had a firm grip on it. This problem contributes to the next problem as well.

2. There is a sensor on the unit to alert you that the canister is full. Unfortunately, this completely stops the machine. As you are shredding, the shredded paper does not distribute evenly through the canister. It forms a sort of "mountain" in the middle. This means that it triggers the "full" sensor much sooner than it needs to. Which means you must pick up this crazy heavy unit and reach your hand in to smooth out the paper shreds. And yes, the light and stopper do not deactivate until they sense that you have removed the unit from the canister, so just shaking it to level the paper will not work.

3. Since the shredding unit must be completely removed to empty the canister, you will need to be able to place it somewhere. This pretty much guarantees you will get some paper shreds on your floor or other surface. In other words, make a mess.

Dealing with this unit wasn't worth it. I had purchased it to replace a shredder where the bin could be pulled from the shredder independently with a handle. It was MUCH easier to deal with, and ironically, much lighter as well. I highly recommend considering this when you purchase a shredder. I traded this in during one of Staples' "Shredder Trade-In" promotions and bought one with the handle on the canister, just like my old one.

12-sheet High Speed Cross-cut Shredder b

By Harry

Comments about Staples 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder:

I have owned this shredder for a little over a week. It is very high speed and handles a lot of paper before the bin needs to be emptied. I like the safety key which came with the shredder and I like the fact that it only begins operation when the paper is fed into the slot. The manner in which you empty the bin may be challenging for some. You have to lift off the shredding unit top and it is heavy. No problem for me, but it might be a challenge for some. The bin is deep and holds a lot of paper. You will need a large bag in which to empty the shredded paper in the bin. I have used small shopping bags in the past which could be placed over the mouth of the bin to empty it, but that is not the case with this bin. I have emptied it by using a large bag and I have emptied it by placing handfuls of paper into smaller bags. I recycle the shredded paper with the local recycling company by placing the bags along side my regular weekly recycling bin. Another tip is to give the shredder a little shake when it appears that it is beginning to get full. This will allow the shreds of paper that have built up toward the back of the shredder to fall to the front. You can easily see the contents in the bin through the very adequate window on the front of the bin. It is far better than those I have seen on other shredders. If the shredder does become jammed by a build up of paper in the back of the unit, a red light will come on and the shredder motor will stop. It should start again if you follow the above mentioned procedure. I purchased this particular shredder for the reason it is fast and it was advertised as being a quieter unit. I must say that it is probably a little quieter than the unit it replaced, but it is definitely not a very quiet unit. It is fast, so what noise there is from the operation of the motor, it does not make noise very long unless you have a major repetitive project going. All things considered, I am very happy with this unit and will hopefully be using it as long as I used my last unit, at least ten years.

Good Shredder, BUT

By Marty

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder:

The shredder works quickly shredding the paper but the paper basket that holds the shreddings needs to be larger because once the shreddings hit the bottom of the mechanism, it will not shred. I actually thought that the shredder had overheated, but that wasn't the case; rather it was the shreddings touching the mechanism. I found that I needed to dump the basket twice as many times as is used to with the old machine. If you need a machine that shreds quickly for smaller jobs, this is perfect. If your job requires a good amount of shedding , I'd suggest another machine.
