Reviewers say the MIU Electric Pepper Mill is the best electric pepper grinder. While manual pepper mills get better reviews overall than electric models do, the MIU Electric Pepper Mill is said to be efficient and convenient for use during cooking (you only need one hand to operate it). We read a few complaints about mechanical breakdowns -- a problem that rarely occurs with the best manual grinders. There are other drawbacks, too: the MIU Electric Pepper Mill is more expensive than the top-rated Unicorn Magnum (*Est. $30), and heavy (it runs on six AA batteries). This pepper mill has a surprising feature: a light that illuminates food as you season it with pepper. If you can't budget as much but still want an excellent pepper mill, reviews point to the Unicorn Keytop (*Est. $20), which has the same capacity but operates manually.
