Best Heavy Duty Paper Shredder

A good paper shredder should be able to shred a paper document, CD, DVD, or a credit card, into the smallest pieces so as no one can view the information contained in those documents, especially those who try to steal such information.

Recommended features to look for in a paper shredder:

  1. It should be a cross-cut shredder, which cuts documents into smaller pieces horizontally and perpendicularly.
  2. The shredder should have a large container of at least 8 gallons for home or a small-business use).
  3. A good paper shredder should be able to destroy credit cards and  CDs or DVDs.
  4. It should be 100% jam proof, unaffected by occasional staples or paper clips.
  5. The shredder should be easy to maintain.
  6. A desired feature is low noise, quiet operation.
  7. The shredder should have built-in safety features.
