Comments about HAND-POWERED PAPER SHREDDER:

I really really was looking forward to using this product and had really high hopes for it. However when I tried shredding anything it wouldn't shred. I tried a few different styles of paper from just plain paper to photo paper. The plain paper went into the shredder and the shredder just left lines on it without actually cutting it. However, the photo paper wouldn't even go into the shredder. The blades would just turn and turn without capturing the paper. So bottom line, the company needs to recall this and completely remake this device. Perhaps make it larger, but most of all make the blades SHARP. I MEAN REALLY SHARP!!! Also make sure the device captures the paper and holds it in place. Very disappointed that I have to go out and buy an electronic shredder... So much for going green...

Comments about HAND-POWERED PAPER SHREDDER:

I loved the idea of this product, but in reality, it hasn't quite held up. I loved that I could use it for the occasional document, but it's too small for a whole sheet of paper (I knew that purchasing it) and when I folded the paper in thirds, the middle part of the shredder broke, and now it mangles papers rather than shredding them.

Comments about HAND-POWERED PAPER SHREDDER:

I'd been planning on getting a basket shredder for awhile, and then saw this and it was cheaper and took up less space. I wasn't sure how durable it would be, but so far, it's successfully shredded everything I put in it. I wish it were a little wider, but it does fit nicely on my desk shelf, so that's a very minor con for me.

          Too bad it doesn't work. I tried all types of paper as well as single sheets or multiple, but the paper simply will not feed through the teeth.
