The Gadget Show Top 5 Paper Shredders

The Gadget Show recently tested just over 20 of the market leading home shredders to establish which performed best, resulting in a handy list of the top 5 paper shredders.

Three tests were done, as follows:

1) The speed test – how quickly would each shredder shred?

2) The security test – how finely would each shredder shred?

3) The hardcore shredding test – how well would each shredder handle tough shredding tasks including shredding thick stapled documents, credit cards and CDs?
