Ziszor Portable Paper Shredder

Updated on March 28, 2008

This next product deserves an introduction worthy of Dr. Seuss: Have you ever heard of a Ziszor? A Ziszor is a whizzer that works like a scissor. Oh yes, a whizzer of a scissor is the Ziszor. Get a Ziszor or you’ll miss her, yes sir!

In case you haven’t figured it out from my poorly written intro, the Ziszor is a portable paper shredder. Some of you are wondering if you even need a paper shredder, let alone a portable one. However, I’m sure you know about the great number of identity thefts of that are the result of consumers throwing away personal information such as bill receipts. Apparently, there are criminals who go through people’s garbage, and find the valuable numbers for credit cards and other information necessary to make large transactions.

So it definitely pays to have a shredder for all that personal information that you throw away. You might as well have one that is portable, and the Ziszor is designed for portability and fashion-ability. For not only does the Ziszor work well, it looks well too.

The Ziszor runs on 4 AA batteries that, oddly enough, are included with the product. At least, they were included with the review model that was sent to me. It has some very sharp blades, and is capable of shredding a maximum of five papers at a time. If the papers you wish to shred are regular 8 by 11 ½ inches, you will probably need to fold them in half, as the shredding area is only a few inches wide. The entire device itself is only 10 inches long and weighs about 1.5 pounds.

Of course the big question is what happens to all the shredding? You don’t want to pollute your floor with paper strips, do you? Fortunately, the Ziszor has three special bag attachments that come with the products. What you do is slip them on through the specially made holes, and the shredded areas go right into the bag for convenient disposal. Any other bags have to be specially ordered in case you don’t like to “reduce, reuse, and recycle”, but you can easily dump the specially made bags out and reuse them. Come to think of it, an ordinary plastic grocery bag could be used in a pinch.

Right now, the Ziszor is available for a special introductory price of $39.95 (regularly $49.95), and the bag refills are about $3.29. It can be purchased at the Ziszor site listed below.
