~I received a P-12C Shredder for review. Opinions and stories are my own.~
o Cross-Cut blades that destroy 12 sheets of paper into approximately 309 particles per sheet, making it extremely difficult to reassemble.
o SafeSense® technology which automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening
o The ability to shred credit cards, paper clips, staples and junk mail for added convenience
o 4-gallon bin
o 16”H x 8.75”W x 17”D
o 1 year product warranty and 5 year cutter warranty
Since I have 2 small kids in my house my absolute favorite feature is the safeSense technology which automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening. Here is a picture of my hand on the silver part which is the opening you put the paper in. The light under SAFESENSE is on indicating that it stopped the machine while my hand is there. I have tried touching it lightly, on the corner, and every other way and it turned off in every instance. This puts my mommy mind at ease that I can have one in the house without worry of my kiddos getting hurt while using it (which they are NEVER allowed to do).
The paper is cut in a cross-cut so that means that it is not just long strips but sideways as well. With approximately 309 particles per sheet it would take way too long to put it back together so make sure and only shred what you want to as there is no going back!
Think about credit card applications, bank statements, old credit cards and so many other things that need to be shredded to prevent identity theft. I am a better safe than sorry kind of gal as I have a pessimistic nature. This shredder is really nice and works great. I actually enjoyed shredding a huge stack of papers that I needed to shred. I felt like I accomplished something! For the price it is worth it to prevent headaches that identity theft would cause!
