The battery-powered PepperMills Supreme Model 200 is the best choice if you frequently need to use the mill while cooking large meals or have trouble with gripping and turning manual pepper mills.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Comfortable one-handed use
This electric mill is convenient to use for cooks who need to have one hand free for food preparation, or someone with a weaker grip who has trouble using manual pepper mills.
Pro Grinds fast
Electric mills are quite slow, they usually take 1-2 minutes to fill a teaspoon. The Model 200 cuts the time down to about 20 seconds.
Pro Universal use
Dual ceramic grinders can handle not only peppercorns but some of the other spices as well. This electric pepper mill easily grinds coriander, fennel, rye, flax, anise, and dill seeds.
Con No very fine grind
The Model 200 has 4 preset grind sizes (most manual mills have 6), and the lowest one does not produce a very fine grind.
Con Makes a loud noise
The battery-powered mill makes a loud whirring noise while grinding, so it's more suitable for cooking, not on a dinner table.
Con Spreads pepper over a wide area
Two grinders spread crushed pepper widely - you need to hold the mill low over the food, so the pepper doesn't cover the whole plate or kitchen counter.
