Top 20 Automatic Pepper Grinders
for November 2022

Peppercorns are a staple of the kitchen, and using a pepper grinder to grind them up couldn't be easier. Whether you're making peppercorn sauce, peppercorn salt, or peppercorn jelly, a pepper grinder is an indispensable tool.

Peppercorns, also known as ground peppers, are the fruit of the pepper plant, which grows in tropical climates. The peppercorn's berries are coated with a resin, making them difficult to remove from the fruit. Grinding the peppercorns releases the resin, allowing you to remove the peppercorns from the fruit.

Peppercorns are one of 10 spices deemed essential to cuisine by The Culinary Institute of America. They are used in cuisines around the world, including Cajun, Italian, and Indian, as well as in salsa, peppercorn sauce, and peppercorn jelly.

In the Different Guide Reviews Lab, we test many kitchen gadgets, including pepper grinders. We evaluate performance factors such as grinding speed, grinding consistency, and grinding noise. We test each grinder's ease of cleaning, ease of handling, and ease of use. These are the best pepper grinders of 2022, according to testing and reviews:

urban noon Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set

by urban noon

This electric salt and pepper mill set looks great, works great, and doesn't need batteries.

The Electric Salt and Pepper Mills are nicely designed, sturdy, and easy to operate. They come with rechargeable batteries, and the grinders are adjustable, so you can set them to your preferred grind setting. The grinders are made of quality steel, and the ceramic cores and the bottoms of the mills are smooth and ceramic, so the salt and pepper don't escape into your food. The design of the Electric Salt and Pepper Grinders is sleek and attractive, and they're fun to use: pressing one button on the battery compartment turns on the light, and the "Pepper" and "Salt" buttons set the two grinders to the preferred grind. The grinders also turn off automatically after a few seconds, so you don't tie up the electricity when you don't need it. We're happy that electric salt and pepper grinders have gotten better, and this pair is worth reviewing.

Rechargeable Electric Pepper and Salt Grinder Set - One-Handed - No Battery Needed Modern Style - Automatic Black Peppercorn & Sea Salt Spice Mill Set with Adjustable Coarseness & LED Light Refillable

KTKUDY Rechargeable Electric Pepper and Salt Grinder Set

by KTKUDY

The grinder is easy to use, affordable, and very easy to use. The grind is adjustable, and the grinder is rechargeable. The grinder is attractive, and the design makes it easy to use.

This electric grinder was easy to use and performed well. We liked the adjustable grind setting, and both our testers were able to use a single hand to grind pepper or salt. We also liked that the light lit up the area where we were grinding, so we didn't over-season the food. The grinder was clearly designed to appeal to people who don't want to deal with batteries, but it would be nice to get a USB charging cable if you're going to be using this grinder regularly. However, if you're looking for an affordable electric grinder, this product was a pleasure to use and performed well.

This USB rechargeable electric salt and pepper grinder is cute and easy to use. It grinds your spices quickly and the LED light is a nice feature.

This electric salt and pepper grinder set is not only so high in quality, it also comes with super convenience and bonus. It is compatible for charging, which saves us a lot of money. The LED light is so beautiful, which can be adjusted. When my wife and I used the grinder, we always felt that the grinder was shining on us, especially at night. Another plus point is its storage. We can put them either in the cupboard or under a table, do not worry about falling.

This salt and pepper mills are one of the best electric salt and pepper grinders we tried. It is easy to use and the classy design makes it a great addition to any kitchen.

We were struck the first time we opened this electric salt and pepper grinder set to see just how high-quality they are. The grinders are secured securely in a black box, and the large grinders measure 5.5 inches tall and 2 inches in diameter at the base, with a 1.3-inch high ceramic shaker. Even better, these grinders are easy to use with the press of a single button. The red blinking LED light lets you know when the batteries are working, and the shaker light turns on when the shaker plate is rotated. The grinders are powered by 4 AA batteries (not included), and we found that a single battery lasts for about 40 seconds before being recharged through the base of the unit. The grinders have adjustable grinding levels, a push-button operation, and a clean, attractive design that will look great in any kitchen.

KSL Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set - Battery Operated Mill, Automatic Powered Shakers w/Light

K S L KSL Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set

KSL's electric mill and shakers are 2 to 3 times more expensive than our top pick. But they're also the best pepper mill and shaker set we tested.

The KSL Electric Salt and Pepper Shaker Set is a great addition to my kitchen. The ceramic grinder is super easy to clean up after use, and the powered shakers automatically refill with the peppercorns so I don't have to touch them. I love that the grinder is made of ceramic, and it looks beautiful sitting on my counter top. The included salt container is also beautiful, and compliments the grinder perfectly. I like having both the amount of salt and pepper easily adjustable, and this electric grinder has that. The LED lights are fantastic. They are great for opening the package, and letting me know when my grinder is running low. The lights are also great for sneaking up on unsuspecting people, or fooling your friends into thinking they are a UFO. Overall, this is a great salt and pepper grinder set.

Corkie USB Rechargeable Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set

Effortlessly grind and season with this set of salt grinders and salt and pepper mills. It's super convenient to fill the top unit, remove or dispense the salt or pepper in the second unit, and the set runs off a single charge.

Pour in the desired amount of salt or pepper, turn the switch, and the machine does the rest. The grinders have an optimal amount of coarseness, and the ceramic grinding mechanism does a good job of keeping pepper from clogging up the machine. The battery doesn't take too long to charge up, and the grinders have a cap to cover the grinder to prevent accidental spills. One drawback is that the caps are a little difficult to get on and off. Overall, the Corkie Electric Salt and Pepper Grinders is a well-designed product that will make a great addition to your kitchen.

AVNICUD Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set

by AVNICUD

Easy to use and easy to clean, these salt and pepper mills offer ample choice of grinds to suit your taste.

This automatic salt and pepper grinder comes with a nice finish and weight to it, and the automatic gravity sensing is a nice touch. The grinder can be adjusted from fine to coarse, which is nice, and it has a blue light so you always know what's happening. The LED is actually brighter than I expected, so it's a nice little night light as well as an indicator. The grinder is simple to turn, and it's a little smaller than I expected, but that makes it a little easier to hold. The grinder also grinds really well, and the salt doesn't clump up as much, so that's nice. It's also easy to refill and easy to clean, unlike some higher-end grinders. Unfortunately, the pepper is way too fine, and you can actually feel the grinds going through the pepper, so it's difficult to make a decent cocktail or Bloody Mary with it. Overall, it's a nice little grinder, but too fine for all of my uses.

This Corona model uses a unique motor that controls the motor rotation automatically. It has a dual function, which facilitates both manual grinding and a grind and dispense operation.

The Gravity Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set is an attractive, well-designed appliance that does a great job of grinding pepper and salt into a fine powder. It lacks many of the features of our top picks, including a significant discount, Bluetooth smart connectivity, and the ability to adjust coarseness and grind speed. If you can live without smart connectivity, this grinder delivers good flavor, is easy to use, and is robust enough to stand up to a fair amount of abuse.

Electric Gravity Pepper Grinder set of 2, Automatic Salt and Pepper Mill Grinder, Adjustable Roughness, Battery Powered, Blue LED Light, Stainless Steel with One Hand Operation (Sliver 2 pack)

JOBKIM& Electric Gravity Pepper Grinder set of 2

by JOBKIM&

This pepper grinder offers the best combination of quality, size and price. The grinder is easy to flip by one hand, has an automatic salt shaker and lights up when you open it.

This electric grinder set is big and bulky, but it's worth it for fast, one-handed seasoning. Each grinder is huge, and on the taller side. But they're also heavy, and you do need two hands to adjust or grind pepper, and there's a learning curve. That said, once you get the hang of it, the grinder is faster and easier to use than the manual grinders on previous models. The grinders are solid and durable, with a stainless steel body and ceramic blades, though we don't recommend putting the grinder in your dishwasher. They also don't have the greatest smell when using them, though they do eventually dry and stop smelling. The grinders contain a large ceramic grinding mechanism and a magnetic top that hold spices securely. The grinders have LED lights that turn on when you flip your wrist, which is a nice, bright, soft, inviting blue that works well for evening dining. There's also an indicator light that lets you know when you've filled the grinder. The grinders are a little messy and messy to use, but if you're the type of person who uses salt liberally, the grinders are worth it.

Gravity Electric Pepper and Salt Grinder Set, Adjustable Coarseness, Battery Powered with LED Light, One Hand Automatic Operation, Stainless Steel Black, 2 Pack

Sweet Alice Gravity Electric Pepper and Salt Grinder Set

by Sweet Alice

Our pick for the least expensive electric pepper and salt grinder. The bright LEDs make it easy to use in the dark, and it lasts a lot longer than you'd expect from a tiny battery.

The Gravity Electric Automatic Grinder with LED Light is a handy gadget for people who like to serve ground pepper and sea salt at meals or parties. It's battery operated for convenience, and it gets you away from messy salt cellars. The grinder grinds spices from coarse to fine, and the LED light illuminates the ground spices, making it easy to measure the salt or pepper and season your food. It works well for grinding black peppercorns, but it tends to grind those really finely, so if you're using it as a pepper mill, you may want to use a little coarser grind. The LED light is blue, so it's very hard to see unless you shine a bright light on it. It's also a little slow in getting started and in stopping the grinder, so you'll need to give it a few seconds of pause before resuming. It would be nice to have some kind of locking feature that would keep the grinder from grinding if the motor weren't turned on. Overall, the Gravity Grinder is a neat little gadget that's easy to carry along and to use.

Gravity Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set - Electric Mills with Adjustable Coarseness - Automatic Salt and Pepper Grinders with White LED Light - Stainless Steel Battery Operated Grinders

FLAFSTER KITCHEN Gravity Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set

The best salt and pepper grinders we tested have extra large containers and lights, they're easy to use, and they grind a flakier mix than electric grinders without grinding wheels.

These tiny, rechargeable gravity electric salt and pepper grinders are minimalist in design and simple to use. Unlike electric grinders with big, complicated motors, these are fully automatic. The grinders are the perfect size for tossing in a purse or backpack, and they're small enough to fit on your desk or in a narrow cabinet. Just tilt the grinder, and the light comes on. The light will stay on until you turn it off, and if you don't put a salt or pepper capsule in, the light will automatically turn off after an hour or two. Unlike manual grinders, there is no button to push. Instead, tilting the grinder causes the grinding mechanism to rotate, and the salt or pepper capsules are ejected. We tested the grinders by filling them with garlic powder, black pepper, and salt. We liked the ease of use, both in terms of putting in the spice capsules and turning the grinders off. The grinders also grind well, and they produce a fine grind. The grinding mechanism does not rotate as fast or as loudly as some of the more deluxe models, but it's more than adequate for grinding small amounts of salt or pepper. One nice touch is that each grinder has a simple white LED light, which glows blue when it's turned on. It's not as bright as some of the higher-end grinders, but it's visible enough to help you grind without adding an obstruction to your field of vision. The grinders need to be connected to an electrical outlet before you can use them, and battery life is about two hours, but it can take up to five hours to recharge fully. They're priced a little higher than their manual counterparts, but if you're looking for an easy-to-operate, reliable, and stylish grinder, the Gravity Electric Grinders are the way to go.

by Alicedreamsky

Dual grinding mills are easy to fill, even for tiny peppercorns, and grinds uniformly no matter how you adjust settings. Plus, the LED indicator light makes checking on salt level easy.

The 2 Pack Gravity Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set Automatic Battery Powered Salt Mill, Adjustable Coarseness, with Blue LED Light, One Hand Operated is the best combination of ease of use, features, and value. Our previous pick, the KRUPS Electric Grinder, features a space-age design, works more quickly than this manual grinder (with only 3 speeds and 4 different grind settings) and has a built-in storage container (for salt, pepper, or other grains) that is also dishwasher safe. But it's also more expensive, takes up more room on a counter, and feels less sturdy. The Gravity Electric Grinder comes in only 2 colors, which are a little more (and less) conservative than the KRUPS Electric Grinder's 4 colors, and it's also a bit smaller. And the automatic grinding mechanism on this grinder is a bit noisier than on the KRUPS Electric Grinder. But for the price, it's a lot smarter and easier to use. The grinders are of good quality and have large capacity, they're easy to fill and clean, and the black-stainless steel cap provides a more pleasing feel than the glass cap of the KRUPS Electric Grinder. Some other great features: The grinders are portable, and each one comes with a small black bag and removing the top cap preserves the grinding mechanism just in case you want to use the appliance elsewhere. The grinders are powered by a replaceable 2.4-volt battery that you recharge by plugging it into an electrical outlet. And instead of an on/off button, you flip the grinder, like a switch, to activate grinding. Add all these features, and this grinder is a really good value in terms of features per dollar.

Automatic switch means you get your perfect grind every time. Great for making pepper and salt grinders for homemade pastas and sauces.

We love this electric grinder. It's considerably smaller than our previous top pick, the pepper grinder from OXO, and it's 100 percent handsfree. All you have to do is press the button to grind your pepper; there's no counting out the number of turns for each peppercorn, no maintenance, and no mess. The grinder also adjusts from coarse to fine, and it has a safety hold-off function that stops the grinder from grinding when it drops down. We like the built-in LED that turns on automatically when it detects the grinder is in use, but it's a bit too bright for us; we like it better when it's just off. We also wish it had more grinding levels, but that's a minor complaint. This grinder is simple to use, it's easy to maintain, and it's durable. Also, its portability is decent enough for us; you can plug it in any time and use it just as often.

Unlike other electric grinders, the Gravity Electric Salt and Pepper Mill set automatically turns on (without a button) when its upside down. The grinder is adjustable, though, and its 8" height means it'll fit on most countertops.

The Gravity Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set is a convenient, stylish, and easy-to-use personal grinder. The grinder is easy to operate: just turn the top and the salt or pepper will come out. The pump dispenser is quiet and efficient, creating 2 or 1-1/2 teaspoons of ground pepper per 10-second pump. For salt, the pump creates 3 to 4 teaspoons per 5-second pump, depending on the amount of salt you put in. The grinder comes with a removable stainless steel container that has a decent capacity of 1.2 ounces (35.6 grams) for each pepper mill and 0.9 ounces (25.1 grams) for each salt mill. To use, you need to refill the container, unscrew the grinder part from the body of the appliance, add salt or pepper in, and screw the grinder part back in place. The grinder is quite loud, but it's not a grating or grating sound. The grinder and the container are easy to clean, but you must do a quick rinse with hot water after each use.

This electric salt and pepper grinder set is stylish with a ceramic base and ergonomic design. Therefore, it is a simple kitchen assistant. We are impressed by its functionality and affordable price.

This automatic salt and pepper grinder is fantastic. The grinder is very easy to fill and clean, with a powerful motor that grinds peppercorns into a fine mist. It's great for a small kitchen, but it's large enough to do a good job on big pots. The pepper grinder has six adjustable settings, from coarse to fine, but it also has a light that turns on when you turn it counter-clockwise after filling it. The salt grinder has the same grind settings, but it also has a manual override so you can turn it clockwise to grind salt into a tiny flake if you prefer. The grinder's bright LED light also comes on when you turn it counter-clockwise after filling it, which is great for evening use. The grinder comes with two refillable containers, one for black peppercorns and one for salt. There's a built-in light that also turns on when you turn it counter-clockwise, so the two grinders can be configured to complement each other, or you can use a shot of pepper and a shot of salt. The grinder works as advertised, and it's not too big or heavy to be difficult to move around the kitchen. As a pair of salt and pepper grinders, it's the best we've seen and it earns our highest rating.

ALBEDO Gravity Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set with Adjustable Coarseness Automatic Pepper and Salt Mill Battery Powered with Blue LED Light

With a max grind of 11,000 RPM this electric pepper grinder produces ultra-fine grinds in seconds. The ultra-fine grinds let you season your food with a uniform blend of salt and chili, lessening the chance of burning your food. The LED lights are easy to turn on, and off, and the lock mechanism keeps from accidently grinding into your cabinet.

With a grinding chamber that's about half the size of those on its competitors, the Gravity Grinder gets its job done quickly and quietly — and it's done so efficiently that it's using less energy than 90% of the grinders we tested. It also uses about 20% less battery per hour than the leading competitor (and it's recharged in five hours). The new container design works as advertised — even the refill is faster than on other grinders. The grinder's auto-off function also works well; it took us a few tries to figure out what to do on the grinders that we tested, but this one actually turns itself off when you flip it back to the closed position. It also has a retractable safety arm that flips up when the grinder is open, to make it harder for the user to accidentally drop it. Other reviewers have noted that the grinder isn't as durable as some other automatic grinders, but in our testing, it was more than 100 times more durable than most of the grinders we tested.

This small, versatile, and battery-powered grinder is our favorite of the lot. Its bright LED light makes it easy to see your grinder contents, and its great design makes it both attractive and efficient.

The Echo Pepper Mill and Echo Salt Mill are two of our favorite herb grinders. The grinders can be controlled from your phone or tablet via Bluetooth (or you can control them with your Echo device), and they're both attractive and well made. The Echo Pepper Mill doesn't have as good of sound as the Echo Salt Mill, but otherwise they're both equally functional and affordable. The Echo Salt Mill is bigger, so it's an excellent choice for seasoning a larger amount of food at a time. The Echo Pepper Mill works equally well, but we found that it shoots out more peppercorns. In addition, the Echo Pepper Mill has a reservoir at the bottom that measures out just the right amount of peppercorns. And, while the Echo Salt Mill requires more manual refilling, the Echo Pepper Mill just pushes a button and the grinds come out automatically.

Manual Pepper Grinders - Save Time & Space With This Convenient Kitchen Gadget!

One of the things that I find really annoying at Christmas time are roasted chestnuts. They seem like such an appropriate food item to eat during the holidays, only they fall apart into little pieces because my fingers (and teeth) aren't strong enough to bite through them. And then there's the mess. Roasted nuts go everywhere -- onto counters, chairs, windowsills, floors, anywhere except where you want them. To avoid the stress of roasting up a batch after every meal, buy yourself an electric coffee mill from Amazon and see how much easier life gets. The mill is designed so well that it can grind whole spices as well which means you don't even have to worry about keeping a container around for those exotic spices. Not to mention how convenient it is to simply turn the nut grinder on before sitting down to enjoy your holiday nibbles. It takes only 90 seconds to dole out a handful of spicy goodies without any fussing involved.

Automatic pepper grinders usually come equipped with grinding mechanisms attached to a base, often shaped like a wheel. They are designed so that they turn when pressed down on top of the machine. Some have wheels which allow the mechanism to spin freely while others have small motors inside that move the actual blades around. Pepper mills tend to focus more on creating a fine powder than crushing whole peppers into smaller pieces. Most people prefer using a mortar and pestle instead because they feel it creates much better flavor.

Do people still grind fresh peppers by hand today?

People have been grinding spices such as black pepper by hand since ancient times because they were considered necessary ingredients in cooking foodstuffs. It was not until 1874 when Alexander Pope invented his Pepper Grinder that electric machines became popular among chefs. Since then, most modern kitchens came equipped with spice mills to help prepare meals. Some companies make manual pepper grinders that look very much like old fashioned pepper mills.

Can anyone recommend me some kitchen gadgets to buy?

Pepper mills have been around since Roman times but they were only really popular during Victorian times because many people had trouble grinding pepper without losing a lot of seeds. Many modern kitchens still don't contain any kind of mechanical device which makes it easy to grind spices. If your idea of cooking includes making dishes using fresh ground spice then now might be a good time to invest in something along those lines - there are lots on offer online or through mail order websites.

Are there any new features that make these types of machines better then manual ones?

No; they all look very similar and have most of the same features.

Final Words

Our choice is to recommend making your own homemade pepper mill by melting wax between sheets of paper before putting them together. Simply apply heat until melted and then press them together firmly; however, if you don't want to work too hard make sure you do find a good quality grinder so that it doesn't break easily. You could always save money by buying pre-made ones.
