Are you considering buying a blender for your kitchen? Are you concerned about noise levels? Are you unsure of how to use a blender to its maximum potential? Read on for all the information you need on the best quiet blenders that I have reviewed.

Blenders are must-have, versatile machines that allow you to easily make sauces, drinks, cocktails, smoothies, desserts, spreads, dips, and even batters for pancakes and waffles.

The vast choice of blenders on the market can be intimidating. What power do I need, what size pitcher, what about the settings and functions?

The list goes on… In this blog, I will simplify the options and review some of the best soundless appliances to help you make the correct choice.

What is a Quiet Blender?

The first thing to know is that a quiet blender is not silent. It is a machine with a motor and machines make noise, and it has been designed to be less noisy than others on the market.

You may want to consider a not noisy appliance if you have small children and don’t want to wake them up at night or early morning.

Perhaps you want to use it in an office or a communal living area without disturbing others.

You may want to blend and not have to block your ears! Then a soundless machine is for you. If you can have a conversation with a friend while blending and not have to shout, you have the right machine.

Here are the key features to consider when looking for the best noiseless blender.

  • Noise levels. To get a bit technical, human conversations take place at around 68 decibels. Most blenders run at about 85-90 decibels. You need to get a machine that runs at approximately 70 decibels. I found that very few (if any) specifications on the machines give you decibels. But, they do tell you whether the design has sound dampening technology, which is what I looked for. You want to be able to talk while the machine is running and not wake up the neighbors.
  • Size and weight. When considering buying a new appliance for my kitchen, where to put it is always a challenge. If I cannot keep it out on a shelf, it has to be lightweight, so I can easily pick it up and store it in a pantry. A word of caution – very lightweight models tend to drift around on the work surface and are not stable.
  • Motor Power. Motor power determines the strength of your machine. Blenders come in wattage power that varies from a small 200 watt to a mega 2000 watt for professional use. The motor size also affects the price. The less powerful, the more careful you have to be with what you use it for, and indeed, limit heavy-duty functions like grinding up frozen ingredients.
  • Various speeds. A super easy-to-use blender will have an on / off switch and will blend. As they become more advanced, you will find that there are different speed options. These allow the blades to rotate faster for more efficient and smoother mixing. I do enjoy being able to control the speeds, especially when I start mixing. I first chop up the large pieces and then increase the speed to make a smooth mix.
  • Pulse Function. Thepulse function is a great feature to have on a blender. It is usually controlled by a button that you manually push. When you release it, the machine stops. The blender will work at medium speed, allowing you to control the time you want to crush or grind.
  • Blade Design and Material. The best blades for blenders are made of Stainless Steel. It is a durable material that is super strong and long-lasting. Stainless Steel is easy to clean and will not absorb odors nor encourage the growth of bacteria. Some high-end machines offer aircraft-grade Stainless Steel blades, which are ultra-strong.
  • Pitcher Design, Material, and Capacity. This is an important consideration and will depend on the size of your household. If you are a single person, a small pitcher size of 14oz will be ideal for one serving. When blending up delights for a family, you will need a larger container with a capacity of around 40-60oz. Some blenders come with additional cups in other sizes which is a perk. Always look for BPA-free containers, preferably those that are shatterproof and dishwasher safe.
  • Ease of cleaning. Washing up after having fun in the kitchen does put a dampener on things. Blenders that have self-cleaning functions are right up there at the top of my list. If they don’t, I want containers that are dishwasher safe. It is also important to check out the blade placement. I want to be able to reach between the blades without cutting my fingers. You don’t want to leave bits of food in there!
  • Extra features. Sometimes you don’t want a machine that claims to do everything. Blenders with additional features can become challenging to operate and confusing. I enjoy extra accessories like containers and cleaning brushes. When it comes to extra features, I want to know that it can grind, mix, stir, crush, blend, and purée, and I am happy.
  • Cost. Decide on your budget before buying and stay within that range. Very cheap is probably not the right choice. Keep in mind that many expensive machines do not always live up to expectations. You may get the same features in a middle-of-the-range priced model.
  • Warranty. I always look for a product that comes with a warranty. This puts my mind at ease, knowing that I will get support if something goes wrong. The more extended the warranty, the more superior the product usually is, with a manufacturer who guarantees quality.

This machine has a 200-watt motor, which can crush ice, and blend nuts and seeds. I found that it did not make excessive noise while operating, but it does not have any specific sound-dampening features.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What do manufacturers do to reduce the noise level?

A. Manufacturers use various noise-dampening features and technology to reduce the noise levels of blenders. Some machines come with Quiet Shields that surround the containers. Others have more elaborate covers that open up, and the container fits inside, sealing off the sound and resulting in a quieter machine. Vacuum machines suck the air out of the container before blending starts, resulting in a more silent operation while they run.

Q. What motor power should you look for a powerful blender?

A. Powerful blenders offer motor power of 2000 watts or even more. These are best suited for professional use. For home use, a powerful blender in the range of 700 watts to 1000 watts is ideal.
