Most newer shredders, including this one will handle staples, just do not feed it large heavy duty staples that are used in commercial places, the small standard staples go through it like a hot knife thru butter. Also read the manual about keeping it lubricated, I used vegetable spray on a piece of paper and feed it thru...this will keep it running smooth.

This shredder will always shut down if you have a lot of shredding to do. Under these circumstances, the machine will automatically shut down because it's overheating. What I usually do is stick a piece of paper into the "mouth". When the shredder is cool enough, it will shred the paper and let me know it's OK to continue shredding.

This is a 2 piece shredder. The top houses the shredder, electric chord and buttons. The top piece sits perfectly on to the basket. There is a little window on the front of the plastic basket to let you see when it is filling up so that you can turn off the shredded and lift up the shredder piece and dump the entire basket. The basket is small enough to lift with one arm when full and dump into a garbage bag. It is small enough to easily handle.
