Product Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 735reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by President I thought that the 79Ci that I purchased 6 years ago would last longer. I maintained the shredder periodically and oiled it as necessary. I do not know what the average life expectancy of the shredder is. I used it 2-3 days a week with average use (40 sheets a day) October 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Say goodbye to junk mail My prior shredder jammed and then completely stopped working so I needed a new one. One thing I do not like is junk mail. With my old shredder, I had to open every piece of mail, junk mail included, and then feed no more than 6 sheets in it at a time. Shredding took a long time and was a chore that no one wanted to do. Researching the various shredders on the market, I found the 79Ci and, based on other reviews and its specifications, I purchased it. Just received it and started shredding 'unopened' mail and this shredder handled it with ease! The 79Ci is quiet when shredding and has a gauge on the right side that indicates how close you are getting to its maximum number of pages it can shred. Very handy to know. I am just very pleased that I can just shred the mail while it is still in the envelopes. Thank you!!! October 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Shredder! I recently purchased this shredder and it is incredible. It lets you know ahead of time before you have the chance of entering too many papers in with its sensor. It lets you know when it needs to cool down and it lets you know when it needs to be emptied so that you can prevent it getting overfilled or jammed. I love this shredder! It is jam (free) packed with everything a shredder needs! September 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My First Shredder I received the shredder and began using it within a couple of days. It is very easy to use and I have had no problem at all with it. August 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by farmer is very quiet and works very well, would recommend it July 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fellowes 79Ci The first Fellowes shredder I purchased lasted over 20 years, so I decided to purchase another Fellowes when that one finally bit the dust. The 79Ci is great! It not only does a fantastic job of crosscut into small pieces; it does it with exceptionally quiet operation. I also like the built in safety features, which are a must if there are small children and/or pets around. It may cost a bit more than some of the others, but it is well worth the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy with purchase I just purchased the shredder after reviewing many and trying to purchase where previous was lacking. This seems to be the answer to what I was wanting. June 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Survives Me This is my "third" shredder. The others were not Fellowes shredders. They didn't last very long. I wound up with jammed shredders and two waste baskets. Then by a stroke of luck { I hadn't heard about Fellowes} I purchased this Fellowes shredder. I have a habit of pushing things, but this shredder has withstood me. No matter what, [even if I have to turn it off for a while] it comes back.Is it possible to love a shredder???? Thanks Fellowes for a product that defies me [ and gratefully so] Carol Slotnick May 18, 2016
