The grinder is by far my biggest concern when it comes to waking up one of the sleeping beauties in the morning, but my Bonavita kettle makes very little noise. Basically the same noise as a teapot on the stove without the whistling. If the noise of boiling water wakes up someone I think the miscellaneous noises made as you bang your way back to consciousness would have probably already done the job.

Thanks for the feedback. Folks here are such light sleepers that I grind while walking the dog with my hario mini mill. The other two electric kettles I tried sound like jet engines according to the boss in my house. Maybe I'll give the bonavita a shot.

Of all the electric kettles I've used, the Bodum Ibis is probably the quietest. It heats the water with a submerged coil rather than indirectly through the bottom. The others I've used are the Pino Pro (my current one) and a Melitta.
