Christmas truly is the perfect time to come together and enjoy the company of those we cherish the most. It's a time for laughter, festive music and the smell of delicious home cooked meals. Not only is the kitchen the heart of the home, it is also the place where the magic truly happens over Christmas! That means it shouldn't be stressful or noisy and it definitely shouldn't take you away from the party.
The Quiet Mark National Noise Report 2023 highlights the growing demand for quiet, as 84% of Brits say it's important to have quiet time to recharge themselves. A further 82% say it matters how loud an appliance is when purchasing one for their home. In light of this, we spoke to Quiet Mark, an international certification programme that tests hundreds of appliances each year.
This Christmas, the team has selected a number of kitchen appliances that won't interrupt those catch-up conversations whilst preparing the Christmas meal. We've already shared with you the list of quiet-approved fans and air purifiers, but these kitchen appliances are guaranteed to make the perfect addition to your stress-free festive cooking experience. As they are Quiet Mark certified, you can be assured they are among the quietest currently available on the market.
