I liked this shredder so much I purchased a second one. This shredder cross-cuts paper and shreds up to 7 sheets of paper at a time. It has a mesh wastebasket included to catch the shredded papers. This shredder has been invaluable in shredding documents that shouldn't be discarded without being shredded.
If you don't empty the basket it will jam but by unplugging it and removing the shredded paper from the blades it will work again like a charm. This shredder will shred all types of paper from newspapers to magazines and everything in between. It can also be used to shred expired credit cards as well as unsolicited credit card offers.
Fellowes is a well known manufacturer of paper and document shredders and for the price this one can't be beat.
