A Quiet Dishwasher Improves Your Home
The number of things in your home that make ambient noise varies, but between your AC and your refrigerator, parts of your home can get pretty loud. The dishwasher isn't on all the time, but dishwashers can be very loud when they are. Low hums, the sound of water running, and sometimes even weird grinding sounds — it's enough to drive you out of the kitchen if you're sensitive to noise.
In fact, dishwashers have a bit of a reputation for causing a ruckus. People tend to clear out of the kitchen when the dishwasher is on. One way to seriously improve the ambience in your kitchen is to invest in a quiet dishwasher.
The quietest dishwasher models reduce that noise to 50 dBA or lower, with top models coming in around 40 dBA. For comparison, 60 dBA is the average noise level a dishwasher makes, and if you're sitting right next to it, it's not much quieter than running the vacuum. Part of what makes the dishwasher so loud is the food particles that get scraped off your dishes and ground into bits.
