Expert Review

Fellowes is one of the best names in deskside shredders because they're high-quality and can rip through almost anything. The W-11C is a testament to how formidable their products are against various materials. This shredder can easily rip through multiple sheets of paper at one time. Fellowes claims it can handle 11 sheets at a time, but you'll want to make it 8 or 9 just to keep things running smoothly.

The shredding mechanism is made entirely of steel (no plastic here), so it can consistently handle large quantities of material. It can tear through 800 pages or so in a span of around five minutes, chewing up paper, credit cards, cardstock, CD's and thin cardboard. It’s all torn asunder in a cross-cut pattern averaging about 400 tiny pieces per sheet of paper. No amount of scotch tape and patience will put those documents back together again.

Auto stop and start lets you leave the unit on at all times, leaving it ready to shred at a moment's notice. Rest assured, it's perfectly safe for use at home and the office. A safety-Lock mechanism shuts the shredder down when it's knocked out of alignment with the included 5.5 gallon capacity wastebasket.Rating: 4.75/5
