Aurora 12 sheet shredder
My Aurora shedder I had for 18 yrs finally broke so I bought this one hoping it would shred just the same. The strips seemed wider, though they weren't long strips they were still a good size that they could be put back together. Which I didn't like when shredding important papers. The credit card goes in the long way so when I shredded two cards (one at a time) I was able to see the numbers good in the strips and put it together to see the whole numbers. I didn't like that. I then cut another card, first using scissors to cut across numbers and name so they would come out smaller when put through the shredder. It was better but why hassle every time I'm shredding a card, when I bought a shredder to do that. Other reviewers liked how it shredded but I'd rather have one that shreds smaller for better privacy. I returned it and I'm going to buy a Micro cut shredder.

Excellent Product

This shredder works great at my office! I love that is cuts paper into smaller pieces than traditional shredders for an even more sense of security. It is on wheels which makes it easy to move from under my desk when I need it. Simple to use. I have only shredded papers, about 10 sheets at once, and it works like a charm. For my everyday use at the office it is definitely worth the price! Easy to remove the shredding top part (though it is a bit heavy) and empty the bin, the bin itself is very light weight and the side window makes it easy to see when it is starting to get full. The bin is a good size and I only have to empty it once or twice a week but I guess that depends on how much you are shredding on a regular basis. I am not sure how well it shreds credit cards or CD's but works great with paper. It is a bit loud when it is shredding but that is expected. Great product, definitely recommend it!

Aurora 12 sheet shreder

Very please with this unit, the rollers on the basket allow the unit to move effortlessly so it can be moved where needed and quickly moved back out of the way for storage when not needed. The motor appears to be powerful enough to shred multiple sheets of papers without blogging down or over heating. I especially like the cross-cut action which more effectively sheds the paper into smaller non-recoverable pieces than a regular straight shredder. The auto start with the safety shield cover works great preventing unwanted material from entering the unit. I had no problem shedding old credit cards or CD without the unit jamming. Works great so far and I would definitely recommend this unit.

Awesome little one!

It shreds into tiny pieces up to 12 pages and also credit cards. It has a built in basket to collect the shredding and the wheels make it very accommodating to use around the house. Its also very compact which makes storing it very easy. Because of its compact size the basket fills up quickly, about the size of a grocery store issued bag. Met all of my expectations and needs.

Aurora Shredder

When my older Aurora shredded finally died, I figured I had good use of it so I'd try another Aurora product. After reading the reviews, I decided on this 12 cut cross cut. The day it arrived, it only took a few minutes to set it up & I was back to shredding paper! I haven't tried putting 12 sheets together, in it, but it works great so far. I do like the casters, so I can move it easily & I like the flip top that hopefully would keep little fingers away from the feed slot. (not that I would let the grandkids near it anyway) Only reason I didn't rate it "Excellent" is because the review said it was quiet but it makes as much noise as my old one did. Also, the window in the front makes it easy to see when the bin is full so you don't over stuff it & risk clogging the shredder.

1. The waste basket is removable.
by CommunityAnswer
2. No. The head easily lifts up so you can empty the basket.
by kathins
3. NO. The basket does not pull out. You must lift the shredder motor which is very heavy to have access to the small basket with the shredder papers. The shredded pieces are big. I am disappointed.
