Anything related to cooking or food preparation tends to have a significant amount of noise accompanying it. However, there are moments when all you need is a chance to enjoy some peace and quiet. Such moments call for finding the best quiet blender. By nature and design, blenders are noisy. Advances in technology are producing super-efficient blenders, which appear to be noisier than ever before. Nevertheless, do not feel discouraged. You don’t have to struggle to find some wonderfully quiet blenders that give you healthier and nutritious juices just like their noisier counterparts.

What is it?

Blenders are important tools to spend money on while trying to live healthily. Living healthy involves eating healthy and nutritious foods, which also include drinks. A blender supports you as you walk along this path. A quiet blender is not necessarily one that works noiselessly. It simply refers to blenders that are comparably noiseless compared to the rest. If you get such a blender, you will immediately notice that it is different from others you may have used. Such blenders tell you that it is possible to blend foods and juices without walking away with ears that threaten to stop functioning due to the volume of noise you just subjected them to.

What to look for

A quiet blender is one that allows you to hold a conversation with a friend or loved one while juicing without shouting at the top of your voice. In this regard, your focus should be on the decibel levels. Most of the blenders you see in the market today operate at decibel levels of around 88. You can only conduct human conversations at 68 decibels. For this reason, your choice of blenders should be limited to those with between 68-70 decibels. Anything higher than this would mean working without any form of conversations with those around you.

The “quietest” blenders tend to be the ones with the necessary structural changes or features.

Quiet blenders cost more than the ordinary noisy ones. The high cost is the consequence of the buyer interested in such types of blenders. For the most part, quiet blenders are quite popular with restaurants and eateries. The biggest buyers tend to be commercial enterprises. Otherwise, customers would take off every time a noisy blender is switched on since the shock to the system would be too much to bear! Often, quiet blenders are commercially graded. What this means is they produce huge quantities of juices and smoothies and are easy to clean.

The one big advantage with such blenders is the fact they last several years.

The Review

Jamba Appliances Quiet Shield Blender

Omega J8006 Nutrition Center

A five-year warranty accompanies this product every time you buy it. The changeable speed control dial allows you to adjust the speeds to your most desired level. Feel free to adjust this speed dial based on the ingredients you feed the blender with and the texture of the food you want to prepare. The blender has a 1.6 horsepower motor, which is ideal for blending any smoothie, protein shake or juice. It comes with two types of jars too. One is the 32oz blending jar. The next is the 20oz jar that has a blade.

The one quality with this blender that makes it capable of operating at high levels without emitting the sort of noise that could deafen you is its enclosure. The enclosure sits right on top of the blender jar thus keeping any noise it produces inside. Its components are dishwasher safe thus making this blender easy to clean. Moreover, it comes with a recipe book and custom tamper. With this blender, you get the power and versatility you need from juicers. It is capable of blending, chopping, crushing, mixing, grinding and pureeing all ingredients.

Cuisinart CBT-1500W Hurricane Blender

Omega J8006 Nutrition Center

Cuisinart CBT-1500W Hurricane Blender is endowed with the ability to crush ingredients more efficiently than other quiet blenders. It runs on a powerful 2.25 peak horsepower motor that does not hinder it from operating noiselessly. Remarkably, the presence of the 60-ounce BPA-Free plastic jar doesn’t cause the sort of noise that is often associated with such components. It has pre-programmed functions that allow you to crush ice and make smoothies without much hindrance. Its electronic touchpad controls offer you more control too.

It blends soft ingredients just as well as it does hard and frozen foods. The only ingredients it appears to struggle obliterating completely are seeds of strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry. It purees, chops, grinds, and mixes ingredients effortlessly too. Its jar and blades are sizeable to cater for any size of the food you wish to prepare. The lid closes securely courtesy of the three rubber gaskets fitted thereon. It also boasts of a nice and stable speed adjustment. However, the base on which the jar sits appears a bit unstable.

Things We Liked

  • Operates noiselessly at low speeds
  • Cleans easily
  • Powerful enough to pulverize and crush every ingredient
  • Well built and sturdy
  • All metal coupling
  • The quality of the blade and container is spot on

Things We Didn’t Like

  • Quite noisy at high speeds
  • Limited functions on its control panel
  • For such a reputable brand, the 3-warranty seems too short

Vitamix 750 Professional Artisan Baker Premium

Omega J8006 Nutrition Center

The first thing you notice about this quiet blender is its weigh. The weight is the result of the metallic construction. Unlike brands such as Ninja, which is renowned for making blenders full of plastic parts, Vitamix has taken a different approach. The metal keeps the noise levels down thus allowing you to blend and do all the juicing while maintaining solid conversations with people around you in the commercial kitchen. Apart from that, the blender offers the quality you need from such a piece of kitchenware. Furthermore, it comes with a 7-year warranty.

The blender is multifunctional and versatile thus capable of making the best smoothies, juices, soups, humus, salsa, and almond milk. The blender’s main ‘flaw’ is arguably the price. It doesn’t come cheap. You have to be ready to spend upwards of $500 to acquire such a type of blender. The opportunity it offers you of working in quiet surroundings should make the price a non-factor. What is more, the blender is powerful. The brushed stainless exterior, a two-peak HP motor, and the two-piece Santoprene rubber lid make the blender worth buying.

Things We Liked

  • Noiseless environment courtesy of the 60-70 decibels it emits
  • Supreme quality
  • Unmatched versatility
  • Full of pre-set programs to avoid relying on guesswork while making foods
  • Well built, sturdy and durables

Things We Didn’t Like

  • Too costly

Conclusion

You would be right to choose any of the quiet blenders reviewed above. As already stated, these blenders are for commercial establishments, but that should not dissuade you from buying any of them for domestic use. In this case, however, you would end up with an excellent choice by going for Vitamix 750 Professional Artisan Baker Premium Blender. The only noticeable flaw with this blender is the price. Apart from that, the blender works efficiently while allowing you to hold meaningful discussions with your colleagues as you prepare foods.
