What, you ask? Take a breath and read on...

(Kitchen sink optional.) All this in a maintenance-free, five-year warranty package.
There is no additional charge for the “Quiet” operation that the Whispers have become known for. It's a “Quiet” that must be heard to be believed! . Beyond Perfect: The only thing the VL-Whisper needs is you!
