Super Quiet Blender Recommendation (Clarified)

I am looking for a recommendation on a blender to bring to work to mix

up shakes. Being that this is a typical office environment I need

something that won't disturb my coworkers. I have a regular $25

Hamilton Beach one at home that would be way too loud.

Requirements:

1) Super Quiet

2) It is for making shakes with ice and water. (needs to be able to crush ice)

3) Would be nice if it were the one piece types that are easier to

clean.(not entirely one piece, just the top glass portion)

4) Looks are unimportant

5) Order online for less than $100

Clarification: I'm looking for a standard blender, not a hand-help model.

Thank you.

  1. Greetings, nuwanda!

    All the reviews I read online seem to indicate that Krups blenders are

    quieter than other brands:

    From epinions.com Reviews for the

    (which is now discontinued)

    "Oh my gosh! I've been on a 3 year search for a blender that could

    handle my morning smoothy and I finally found it. This blender goes

    through frozen strawberries like butter. I bought one, more expensive

    blender, that in thier instructions said not to even try frozen

    strawberries."

    On the other hand, if a one-piece blender is a high priority for you,

    check this one out:

    Waring Professional Bar Blender PBB Series

    Review by laurapetrie (February 9, 2002)

    "Usually, the blade unscrews from the jar, then you have the blade, a

    plastic ring, and the gasket which screws into the blender's base. The

    jar on this blender is all one piece and there's no awkward twisting

    to get it properly positioned for blending…

    This blender rocks! Even though I didn't have any use for a blender

    before buying one, that has changed.

    The first thing that I blended was a protein shake with milk and

    protein powder. It foamed up and mixed perfectly, leaving no globs of

    protein powder at the bottom of my glass when I was done. I later

    discover that this blender makes near perfect chocolate milk…I'll

    never buy it pre-mixed again!

    I've since moved on to making fruit smoothies and daqueris and have

    discovered why this is called a "Bar Blender". Smoothies come out

    "smooth" and frozen fruity rum drinks don't have chunks of uncrushed

    ice in them. "
