It’s not completely noiseless but it’s so much more pleasant to use quiet stand mixer than a quiet one.
Under heavy loud you might notice some clicking (it’s not too loud) which might concern you but this is completely normal.
The pouring shield has a large opening so adding ingredients is very easy during mixing (on cheaper models you usually have to stop the mixer and lift up the head).

You can also adjust the height of the bowl by turning around height adjustment screw if the attachments are too high or touch be bowl.
