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.

Works great!

Comments about Staples® 12-Sheet High Speed Cross-Cut Shredder:

We were cleaning out my mother's apartment and found lots of old records that had to be shredded. Her shredder would only take a few sheets at a time and, even at that, kept overheating and we'd have to shut it down to cool for a period of time. We decided we'd get a heavy-duty one that would work more efficiently (and we also needed a new one at home). This 12-sheet high speed cross-cut shredder zipped right through stacks of mail and records. The cross-shredding compacts better as it shreds so means less frequent dumping of the basket.

12 sheet shredder

By Jack the Alchemist

Comments about Staples® 12-Sheet High Speed Cross-Cut Shredder:

This shredder was purchased to replace one that died. Although I have not tried 12 sheets, it does fine with six to eight sheets. While not the quietest shredder around, the noise level is quite acceptable. The only negative I have with the device is that the motor/rotor assembly must be lifted and removed from the basket inoder to empty the basket. However, a kitchen trash bag fits nicely into the basket for easy removal of the shreded material. For the price I recommend the shredder.

Comments about Staples® 12-Sheet High Speed Cross-Cut Shredder:

We use our Staples® 12-Sheet High Speed Cross-Cut Shredder in a small business and it is working great the previous shredder had quit working and the paper was piling up so needless to say right out of the box we gave it a work out and had no jams, and the paper to be shredded feed easily into the access and even though the specs are the same as the old shredder it sounds stronger and works better

shredder

Comments about Staples® 12-Sheet High Speed Cross-Cut Shredder:

i like the shredder for the most part except that it only gets half full before it is shutting off telling me I need to empty it. i find this rather annoying as I still have plenty of room in the can part. I shake it and the paper moves, but at times I have to shake the bottom of the shredder at least ten times to add only about two inches to it. I had to empty the shredder over twenty times with what I was shredding. I think the basin is too small for it. the top part th the motor isn it is also very heavy. i never had one that wieghed so much. I probably will not purchase one like that again I am quite disappointed in it..
