There are several different kinds of paper shredders out there for you to choose from, with the least secure being the kind of shredder that makes your documents into long strips, and the most secure that makes your documents into tiny amounts that can be passed through a screen. The shredders that you see in the store are often the simpler kinds, but here is a rundown of the different kinds of shredders in the order of where they fit in the security scheme of things:
Other features you may wish to consider when choosing a shredder are things like jam-proof shredders, which keep your shredder from taking in amounts of paper it can't handle; energy savers, which put the shredder into a sleep mode when you are not using them; silent operation, which makes your shredder a lot quieter when it is running; safety sensor, which makes it so your shredder automatically turns off as soon as your hands get too close to the blades; and mess reduction, which is great because the machine cleans its own blades of paper buildup and a sensor tells you when it is time to clean out the bin that contains all the shredding remnants.
