SWMBO has a new Kenwood-style (but not Kenwood) food mixer.
Out of the box and without being under load, it sounds bloody loud to both of us, to the extent that it almost drowns out the phone ringing and the doorbell.
It doesn't sound raggy as if there's something wrong with it... it just sounds LOUD.
If it were a power tool, I'd be considering reaching for the ear muffs.
Are they all loud? Are they generally loud? Are there quieter ones?
