You may never have heard of this blender, but the Omniblend TM-800AQ is made in Canada and is one of the quietest blenders made. Although not inexpensive, it rivals the top rated Blendtech in noise reduction. The secret here is to get the Omniblend commercial package; you'll get the killer Omniblend blender, that comes with a three horsepower motor, a seven year warranty, and low/medium/high push button functionality. It also gives you pre-set run times of 35 seconds, 60 seconds and 90 seconds, and it comes with a pulse button too. But the commercial package also gives you a sound-proof container with an easy access front opening door that you place the blender into; the container alone helps reduce blending noise by up to 80 percent. This blender is almost as quiet as the top rated unit here, and you'll pay about half as much too. Since it is made in Canada, you'll only be able to get this beauty online but the Omniblend TM-800 blender is heavy duty and incredibly functional, with a noise reduction that rivals the best.
