The Shredstar BS10C by HSM received the highest score from Good Housekeeping and received praise for its ability to operate continuously without overheating and the mobility that comes with its inclusion of casters. The Shredstar BS10C can even shred more papers at once than the manufacturer claims and is remarkably quiet while doing so. Royal's 112MX is a well-built, cross-cut shredder that can handle just about any job, as it takes care of papers, CDs, credit cards and staples without a problem.

Fellowes' Powershred 73Ci specializes in shredding large amounts of paper at once. The shredder comes equipped with a sensor that can gauge how thick the inserted pages are and notify the user if they are too thick to shred all at once. The Powershred 73Ci is also good for homes with kids and pets, as its SafeSense alert detects if anyone touches the paper-feeder slot. The SPL-TXC102A by Staples has a convenient see-through window that allows the user to prevent overflowing baskets, and Ativa's MD Pro 1200 received praise for its easily emptied bin.
