Shredding Brilliant

Great little machine, takes folded A4 sheets and turns them into small confetti, great if you have a wedding coming up. Is small and compact so storage even in very cosy homes is not a problem. Very good for home use. It says that it would take eight sheets, I am not sure that this is so as it did struggle on six, however that is not a problem. So if you need a good cheap and cheerful shredder you can buy this one with complete confidence.

Chomps through paper at a surprising rate

This is a great little machine for light use. I only have the odd letter and a few statements etc and it goes through them surprisingly quickly. The resulting shredded paper comes out as quite long strips compared to my last shredder which produced confetti - to the point that I had to double check it was a cross cut one. But I guess it's still in small enough pieces that it'd be tricky to piece it together! My only wish would be that I the top mechanism could be manually clipped to the basket as I keep lifting it out of the cupboard by the handle which leaves the basket behind. It would be better to be able to lift the whole unit out with the handle. But a minor point. Overall, a good little machine for light use that tucks away neatly.

Please Note

I bought this shredder as my other shredder died :( This is a nice compact shredder its does the job, The only 2 things wrong are: 1. Its says on the box that this is a Cross Cut Shredder. It isn't its a straight cut shredder. But ARGOS do not advertise this as a Straight or Cross cut shredder in there catalogue. So Please note this is a Straight cut shredder. 2. This has a A6 cutting paper slot. So you have to fold all A4 letters in half to feed into the shredder. But other than that its a nice shredder.

Is this a cross cut or strip shredder?

1 Answer

Hello, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query regarding the Pro Action Desktop Shredder, I can confirm having spoken with an Argos store, this is a cross cut shredder.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

Does it shred credit card?

The description on the catalogue says it does but can't see it on the webpage.

1 Answer

I own this shredder and personally wouldn't risk putting credit cards in there. It might be OK but I don't think it seems quite robust enough for plastic.


Is it noisy?

1 Answer

Yes it is, I wouldn't use it of kids were in bed put it that way.

Boring but important info

Shredders - Cross or 'Confetti' Cut

Protect your identity by shredding personal and confidential documents. For high security choose a cross-cut shredder. These cut the waste into tiny 'confetti' size bits so it's virtually impossible for a document to be reconstructed. Cross-cut or 'confetti' waste is less bulky so you don't need to empty the basket so often.
