Even with all the holiday ideas swirling around the internet I bet you are still having trouble finding a gift or two. Wondering what should I get that uncle or husband who always seems to be in need of a little organizational help. Truthfully my husband is all about structure and organization. He is also very much into recycling and taking care of things immediately. As much as he likes to recycle we can’t throw our credit card offers, billing statements, or other important items into our recycling bins. Even if they are torn up there is still a chance someone sneaky could get a hold of them.
That is where the Fellowes 63Cb Shredder comes in handy, we can shred them all and still recycle.
When my mother in law lived with us we had a small shredder and my husband got use to being able to shred items he didn’t want to throw in the trash. However we definitely missed it once it was gone. We were excited to get to test drive our new Fellowes Shredder and put it to good use. This is definitely a sturdy shredder. I was quite surprised how heavy it was when it arrived. Here are some of the key features:
- Jam BlockerTM technology features an electronic sensor that measures paper and prevents overfeeding, stopping jams in their tracks
- Proprietary Energy Savings System functions whether the machine is in use or not
- Cross-Cut blades destroy a single sheet of paper into 399 particles, making it nearly impossible to piece back together
- Easily shreds credit cards, paper clips and staples for added convenience
- SafeSense® technology automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening through an advanced electronic safety sensor (aka kid safe!)
Of all these features if you asked me which one I liked the best I honestly couldn’t tell you they are all important. My husband whoever would say the SafeSense is his favorite, he is always looking out for his babies. We set it up, in under a minute, and tested it out. There were a few minor features I immediately like. The phone number in a small little sticker in case we need customer service (much better then searching for the manual or looking online), the easy to grab handles for moving, and the removable bin to empty the trash.
We tested each feature, the Jam Blocker works great. The purpose of the Jam Blocker is to recognize before the paper even starts to shred that there is too much. You will see the “remove paper icon” if there is too much paper for the shredder to handle. If for any reason the paper gets wrinkled or stuck you simply slide the bottom to reverse and the paper will back out of the shredder.
The SafeSense Technology is perfect if you have little curious fingers that love to get into anything. This technology causes the shredder to stop immediately when hands touch the paper opening. There is also an on off switch located on the back of the shredder so it can be turned totally off if you like. There is no need to turn it completely off however, due to the Energy Saving System . Sleep Mode will shut down the shredder after two minutes of activity.
With all the great features and its compact size this is a great edition to our home office. Now instead of sending our mail to the trash my husband will be able to recycle, with confidence that our information is still safe. Slowly but surely I’m turning my husband into a technology lover!
