Today we’re looking at the AmazonBasics 6 sheet cross cut Paper and Credit Card Shredder. This one of the least expensive cross cut shredders on the market, that also shreds credit cards. Cross cut offers medium security shredding- which is fine for most households. AmazonBasics 6 sheet cross cut Paper and Credit Card Shredder is much better than strip shredding, but not as good as micro cut shredders. I’ll leave links to some micro-cut shredders in the description below, in case you need even more secure shredding.
The AmazonBasics 6 sheet cross cut Paper and Credit Card Shredder, like other shredders, has two major parts: the shredding head and the bin. The bin is about 12 inches tall by 12 inches wide and 7 inches deep at its mouth. The shredding head has an on-off-reverse button, a shredding slot for paper, and a credit card slot in the middle. All external parts are made from plastic.
To shred, plug it in. And leave it turned and it automatically shreds anything you put into it. Paper test: It effortlessly handles upto six sheets and can even do fully sealed envelopes, like the junk promotional stuff you get in the mail from credit card companies. The paper is well shredded and its hard to make out any coherent information.Now if it does happen to jam, you can move the switch to reverse and this should clear out the jam.
Now lets try shredding a credit card. Again, the card was chewed up pretty quickly and the shredded plastic is good enough to put into your trash.
Now the only way you can tell if the shredder bin is full, is by looking into the curved slots on the front. There are no sensors, like more expensive units. But at this price point, this is to be expected and isn’t really an issue at all.
The AmazonBasics 6-Sheet Cross-Cut Paper and Credit Card Shredder is great value. Its priced right, is very robust and is great to have around the house or home office. It does exactly what its designed to do and is very simple to use. Fantastic little shredder. Hope this review was useful. If it was, please HIT like and subscribe for more reviews. See you next time.
