5 quiet kettles for a peaceful morning brew

5 quiet kettles for a peaceful morning brew

Tried and tested by Quiet Mark, these kettles have been designed to boil silently.

Looking for a quiet kettle that promises to boil silently? You've come to the right place. Whether you're on the hunt for a matt black design or a smart all-in-one kettle, Quiet Mark has uncovered the best ones that won't wake up your household or break the bank.

'Kettles are a synonym of calmness,' say the experts at Quiet Mark. 'To minimise disturbance, overall levels should aim to be reduced whenever possible by isolating the boiling sound from the outside and ensuring that what does get projected through the "whistle" is not overly tonal or present.'

Quiet Mark, the independent global certification programme launched by the UK Noise Abatement Society, helps shoppers find the quietest appliance technology and acoustic materials on the market to support their health and wellbeing. While it is difficult to engineer a quiet kettle as it has to boil in under two minutes (which is no easy feat), Quiet Mark discovered the best on the market, including models from Lakeland, Sage and Dualit. In fact, out of almost 150 kettles tested by the team, only very few models pass for the Quiet Mark certification.

On that note, shop the best Quiet Mark-approved kettles to add to your shopping list...


Dualit Classic Kettle, Damson

Dualit Classic Kettle, Damson

With a smart, silver appearance and damson-hued detailing, this multi-patented classic Dualit kettle has a whisper boil feature that drastically reduces unwanted boiling noise. It has been fitted with a fast 3Kw element (meaning your tea will be ready quicker), and two measuring windows with cup level and litre indicators. Choose from a range of finishes to suit your kitchen design.


Breville Curve White Electric Kettle

Breville Curve White Electric Kettle 

You can never go wrong with white. Described by Quiet Mark as a 'practical kitchen companion', this quiet kettle by Breville has a bold textured white finish and a 1.7 litre capacity — perfect for busy households. We think it would look good on any kitchen counter.


Aqua Optima Instant Hot & Cold Water Dispenser

Aqua Optima Instant Hot and Cold Water Dispenser

This all-in-one kettle, chiller and filter jug is what every kitchen needs. As well as being certified by Quiet Mark, it has seven temperature options and seven different volume capacities. And, because you only boil the amount of water you need, it's a great way to save on energy bills. Making your early morning coffee without waking up the household just got easier.

Dualit Pour Over Fast Boil Electric Kettle

Dualit Pour Over Fast Boil Electric Kettle

Dualit's matt black kettle is ideal for modern kitchens. Its long, slim 'gooseneck' spout allows for a more even flow of water, while it is also ideal for using with drip-through coffee makers. Perhaps the most handy feature is that the kettle can also be muted so no key tones or feedback sounds will be heard.

The Tea Maker™

Sage The Tea Maker™

Tea lovers will adore this clever glass tea maker by Sage. With a silent boil, simply press a button and watch as the small basket of tea blends into the water. There's also a handy timer so you can sip your morning brew right away. It's a little steep at just under £210, but can be used for a whole host of different tea varieties.
