AEG appliances awarded Quiet Mark’s seal of approval
We are delighted to announce that state-of-the-art AEG appliances have been awarded the Quiet Mark. The Quiet Mark is the international mark of approval award programme from the UK Noise Abatement Society encouraging worldwide companies in the development of noise reduction within the design of everyday machines and appliances. AEG has been a pioneer of quiet kitchen appliances, having introduced the quietest vacuum cleaner, the quietest dishwasher and the quietest blender into the market.
AEG also commissioned the biggest ever survey on noise in the home (AEG Noise Report 2007) and this revealed that the vast majority of consumers across Europe said it was a mistake not taking more consideration of the noise an appliance makes at the time of purchase.
The Noise Report found that 29% of those buying washing machines, 28% of those buying dishwashers, 33% of those buying cooker hoods, 27% of those buying tumble dryers and 18% of those buying refrigerators wished they had taken noise in to account to a greater degree when they bought each item.
The study showed that in some cases, consumers were so unhappy with the noise their new appliance made, they eventually threw it out – or never actually used.
The survey revealed that given the choice again, around half would go for the quieter option, even if it was more expensive, whether it was for washing machines, cooker hoods or dishwashers. Interestingly, and perhaps not surprisingly, the survey found that many people also strongly associated quieter appliances with quality, reliability, efficiency and thus environmental friendliness.

AEG dishwasher F99009MOP : With more people living, eating and entertaining in the kitchens, noise level on dishwashers is very important. The new AEG range is extremely quiet and this top of the range model has the lowest noise level of any dishwasher. With an outstandingly quiet noise level of 39dv you can’t even hear when it is one! This model uses just 0.99kWh of energy and water consumption is only 10 litres.
AEG Washing machine L98699FL :
This AEG washing machine has been developed with Silent System PLUS; a noise-reduction technology that includes insulation layers and a purpose designed inverter motor for exceptionally quiet operation. The noise level can be further reduced by 47dB by using the extra silent night programme.
AEG Powermix Silentblender
This table top blender from AEG is the quietest on the market at just 77dB. You can talk while using it and still be heard, which is why it is a favourite for James Martin’s Saturday Kitchen. Today’s blenders produce an average of 85-95 dB, that’s the same category as Lawn mowers and motorcycles!
