Ziszor Handheld Paper Shredder
We often know of paper shredders to be large and bulky objects in the office. Despite their rather uncharming appearance, the paper shredders are essential office equipment, even more so if you happen to be in a department where information is more sensitive than your pimple-free butt. The Ziszor handheld paper shredder not only makes it more convenient for you to bring it along wherever you travel, but it is also pleasing to the eyes, claiming to be the first designer handheld paper shredder in the world. With identity theft being the fastest growing crime in the US, I would say lugging around one of these make perfect sense.
Ziszor (the real name actually comes with an exclamation mark at the end, but I’ve omitted it for easier reading) is touted by the manufacturer to be “the first premium, hand-held paper shredder to balance security with ease of use and portability”. It measures 10″ long and weighs less than 1.5 pounds, making short work of just about any incriminating mail or receipts. Better hope that those credit card bills and statements you racked up by bringing the secretary out to lunch is not discovered by your wife, lest you end up sleeping outside the house for the next few months due to a domestic dispute! All shredded waste are collected in a disposable plastic catch-bag, making it painless to get rid of.
All you need to do is insert any folded paper (no more than 5 sheets at any one time) into the Ziszor’s slot, press the trigger button and you’re good to go. A quartet of AA batteries are required to power this Ziszor, while each purchase comes with a trio of catch-bags. You know how it is each time you start to get rid of sensitive information – your palms get all sweaty because you’re wondering whether anyone is looking over the shoulder, and all that grime build-up can be rather nasty to look at on the Ziszor. Thankfully, it is made out of high-impact plastic that makes it a snap to clean, as long as you use a damp cloth and mild soap. The Ziszor will retail for $49.50 a pop, while replacement catch-bags are going for $3.29 for a box of 30.
