Amazon Item of the Week: Fellowes Powershred 79Ci

A while back I bought a shredder — like 4 years ago — to start shredding anything that has my name on it. 1 For the first few times I used that shredder everything was great. Then it jammed one day and I spent two hours picking everything out of it. From that point forward that shredder was the worst thing I had in my home office — the amount of hatred I had for that shredder rivals a PC Load Letter error.

So I asked for recommendations for something new, and no one had any for a shredder. I purchased a new one for home and it’s meh — it still works — it’s just not very good.

Then I needed a shredder for my office, to shred important things, I think.

What I purchased is a Fellowes 79Ci — which believe it or not is a simple name when it comes to shredders — and I have now run about 1,000 pages through it. I can confidently say that this is a good shredder.

  • It’s quiet.
  • It has yet to jam.
  • Has a large capacity.
  • Auto-reverses before it jams.

Best of all it ships via Prime and is only $178 and change — recommended.

  1. This level of paranoia should surprise no reader.
