Our test models
We tested models suitable for a home or small office. They can shred between 5 and 12 A4 sheets simultaneously and take between 1 and 4 minutes to process 100 sheets.
One shredder could process CDs, which might be useful. Others can process stapled pages – and in some cases paper clips.
But these models can’t shred continuously. They must "rest" for a minimum time after they’ve been shredding for a few minutes. (See the Test results for "shred" and "rest" times.)
