Fellowes Intellishred PS-79Ci Shredder

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

I have owned several paper shredders in my life however, they never seem to last very long. Maybe I am just too hard on them or shred too many things but they all just seem to die or else they jam one too many times so I end up getting rid of them. I recycle everything that I can however, I am not comfortable just tearing things up and throwing them in the recycle bin so everything goes through the shredder, in a bag and then in the recycle bin. This was the first time I was going to buy a good quality paper shredder so I did a lot of research first before I spent $189.99. Was this unit going to be any better than the $50 shredders I've been use to?

The Fellowes Intellishred is beyond fabulous. It weighs 30 pounds, comes with a 2 year warranty and it has plenty of thoughtful extras. This unit holds six gallons of shredded material in a very easy to empty bin that simply pulls out. It also has a sensor that tells you when the bin is full so it doesn't overflow. This shredder is also extremely quiet, not like any other one I've ever had.

The greatest quality about this shredder is that it really works. This thing shreds everything including CDs, staples and credit cards. I have stuffed 10 sheets of paper at a time in it and I think it could take much more. It actually electronically measures how thick your paper is so it doesn't jam and it has a safety feature that surrounds the paper so there is no room to get your fingers stuck in it. In fact, the machine shuts off if you touch the opening where the paper goes. This is an important feature to have if you have children in your home. One other special touch that Fellowes thought of with this unit is that the cord is bent close to the plug so you can place it close to the wall.

If you have used cheap paper shredders that are more trouble than what they are worth, do yourself a favor and spend a little extra money and get yourself this unit, it is well worth it.
