Rated 1 out of 5 by R2P2 Does NOT work in all situations as stated
Sent back ... Does NOT work in all situations as stated. (some paper labelling is too waxy/shiny and of course all too often these days, there is a plastic film over the top demanding cutting/shredding.
I find it's still more reliable to burn or .... (a fab trick from my aunt) 'rub' paper between your fingers/palms in water! (many types of paper just disintegrate this way) .... and when doing large volumes ... still prefer using my cross shredder .. or if a plastic backed label from which the paper 'sticker' will not separate ... then I cut out the sensitive area carrying ID info and chop it up with a pair of scissors.

Such a clever idea. I am now able to recycle more items and have less need to use a shredder. Simple and effective in covering address strip on letters and leaflets etc. - so far have only had success. I would urge people to give them a try.

Great idea and very easy to use. But it doesn't completely obliterate print on shiny labels, paper and envelopes. Details are still legible, so I've not been able to dispense with my shredder, which is a shame!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrannyGrey Simple but genius!
Initially I bought a set of these rollers for myself but when I saw how useful and easy they are to use I decided to buy several more for additional little gifts at Christmas. My children, friends and family have all commented that out of all the presents they received these are one the best. One of my daughters is taking hers to work as she has to redact documents and the roller is so much quicker and more effective than a black marker pen. At home mine is in almost daily use and was especially useful when disposing of all my QVC parcel bags and boxes and needing to blank out my address. Please don't stop selling them or the replacement ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FLM7 Quick and clever!
Bought enough to hand out to family and we are all addicts! No longer spending time shredding or cutting out personal data from letters or envelopes. So easy to use and no, it doesn't work on glossy coverings, but very few inks do!

I ordered these and kept one for myself and gave one away as a gift.
They are fantastic and work as described in the presentation.
I am so pleased that I've ordered two more and spare refills. Gone are the days of storing my confidential waste.
just roll and throw is my motto now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewYork62 Easy to use and no mess
Like the previous reviewer I have also had the stamp & ink pad set in the past.
I have found this set so much better as you just press the top to access the roller and once finished masking your details you press the top again and the cover comes back over the roller, so no mess. My address details were completely covered and could not be read at all even under a strong bright light.
( I would not use it on glossy paper - cut up as normal. )
I am glad I brought these rollers as it will help save time with the Christmas card envelopes.
