I do agree with you - though the equivalent Bosch ones are between £300 and £370, even on Amazon. They're far better, but pretty expensive.
I have one, I'd still prefer to shred before burning, burning honestly takes about 80% less time when shredded
Disagree my neighbours are noisier than my shredder
I purchased the Florabest Shredder from Lidl for £99.99. Don't know whether I should return it and buy this one. Need to compare specs but can't seem to find the Lidl one on their site anymore
