Black & Decker iShred Vertical Shredder Review

by Nicole on November 25, 2010

Name of Product: Black & Decker iShred Vertical Shredder

Price of Product: $129.99

Where can the product be purchased: at Best Buy

Description of Product:Currently the only vertical shredder on the market, the iShred features a sculptural design that blends in to any house or office setting, making this an appliance the consumer would be proud to display. The unique fluted bin allows for easy, clean emptying and added stability. Its patented, revolutionary design limits access to any blades providing added security. Tiny shreds allow for ultimate document protection.”

Review of Product: I am embarrassed to admit that until I got the iShred to review I was using an old shredder that looks like a small black trashcan and has a hard time if I put more than 1 document through it at a time.  What a breath of fresh air the iShred is! I can put through several documents at a time and it’s super quiet.  My old shredder was on the loud side and groaned and moaned every time I asked it to shred something! The shape of it is modern and sleek and no one guesses it’s a shredder.  No more boring black box! I am now shredding pretty much all documents, so much safer that way to maintain privacy and safeguard your identity.   So while you might not think of a shredder as a great gift for the holidays,  I think it is the perfect gift for the practical and responsible recipient on your list – or perhaps the irresponsible one who really needs it! Either way, this is a top of the line, modern shredder that serves its purpose, and some.

I received the product to review at no charge but my opinions remain my own.

This sounds like the perfect thing for the new office in my new house :) Thanks for the review Nicole. Time to give my little black box shredder the burial it is long past due for!

The product has an unusual shape, and doesn’t LOOK like any other paper shredder. Unfortunately, it doesn’t WORK like any other paper shredder, either. Even with only one sheet of paper, a warning light often comes on, and it refuses to shred. Because of the unusual shape, the shredder quickly says it is full. Also because of the unusual shape, you can’t just flip it over to dump out the shredded paper. Instead, you must carefully shake it out, little-by-little. I didn’t like this product at all!
