This is a small but attractive desktop unit that won't take up too much space, perfect for your home office or even the kitchen. Shreds four sheets at a pass into 1/4" stripcut shreds. Strip cut is the spaghetti cut which isn't as thorough as confetti-cut, and doesn't compact as easily, but what you sacrifice in technology, you save in space, and that's a good thing too. This machine also features auto start/stop, 4 3/4" entry slot so you have to fold some things. It comes in white and the bucket is clear so you can see when it is time to empty.
