Quiet Kitchen Technology from Insinkerator, Schweigen

With the modern kitchen encroaching more within the main living space of our homes, the demand for quiet technology is high on the priority list. Since the invention of hardware that enables silent close draws, more people are actively hunting out appliances that are low in decibel ratings.

Food waste disposers have traditionally been the nosiest appliance in any kitchen, which tend to put people off the idea. Not any more with the latest and greatest being the Insinkerator Evolution 200, which is 60% quieter than its rivals.

One of the most common complaints from clients is concerning the noise from a range hood, again this technology has come ahead in leaps and bounds with the new Silent Range extractor from Schweigen.

Now we can even go as far as not having the noise of a jug boiling away on a bench top with the hot and cold tap, not only can we have one less appliance on display but we can have boiling hot water instantly without the noise.

Where to from here?  I guess the sky is the limit -- I wonder if they will ever invent the silent wine glass when it is smashed on a granite bench top at a dinner party?
