A personal shredder is a machine that one can use to dispose of vulnerable documents that have the possibility of facilitating identity theft. A personal paper shredder may be cross cut, strip cut or micro cut according to the levels of privacy required. They are ranging from low to extremely high security levels.
In our homes there is a constant generation of plenty of waste paper from children's homework to junk mail, and if there is a home office then the paper pile grows deeper. For security, many people choose to shred most of this paper. Personal and small office paper shredders can do this work well however all shredders are not same. You have to look for the best deals on price, features, and performance.
Strip-cut shredders are also called straight-cut or spaghetti-cut, as it slices the paper into long, thin strips. These handle a higher volume of paper with lower maintenance requirements. However the strip size is quiet big and you will need a bigger basket.

Cross-cut shredders provide more safety by cutting paper vertically and horizontally into confetti-like pieces. The waste bin can also hold more cut paper. But these shredders may require more maintenance and are costly. If anyone has the patience he can reconstruct the shredded paper however it is next to impossible in case of cross cut shredder.
