For their primary function, grinding pepper and salt, they're great! Super fast, quiet, very nice, even grind. I'm no expert, but it's hard to imagine how any grinder could be any better.

Still, there are a few annoyances:

1) They take 6 AAA batteries each! That's 12 batteries total. So add another $8-10 to the cost, and an additional $4-5 each every time the batteries run down. Hopefully that won't be too often, but still....

2) They're very large and heavy for the volume of salt/pepper they hold. What you see in the window is it. I guess that's not a big deal, but it just seems slightly deceptive.

3) The light is simply annoying. These things grind very quickly. If I hold the button down long enough for my eyes to become accustomed to the light, I end up with 4 times as much pepper as I can stand. These are so quick I prefer to hit 'em in short bursts, which means I end up with short flashes that actually make it harder to see what I'm getting. I wish the light had a switch I could flip to disable it. I may end up just snipping the wires.

All that notwithstanding, at the Amazon price I got the pair of them for, I'd definitely buy them again. They do grind great!

My family has enjoyed the MIU France stainless-steel battery-operated salt and pepper mill set. I have given several sets for wedding gifts. You have fresh pepper fast and easy, and just enough salt. The set takes several batteries, but they last a long time.

After going on a the new cruise ship Freedom of the Seas and seeing the chef with one of these pepper mills....I had to purchase one. After reviewing the other products, I decided this would be the best one to get. I decided to go ahead and get the salt mill also. I have been very happy with both of these items and do not know what I would do without them now. I only use sea salt in the salt mill because it has the most health benifits. Regular table salt is not good for the body. We have been using alot more pepper because it comes out so easily and we do not have to wear our wrists out and still not get enough....I get enough wrist workout typing at the computer. I get the mixed black, white and green pepper corns. Our meals are much tastier and the health benefits of using more pepper are worth the purchase.

These both work fine but don't match up to the battery operated pepper mill I had previously. My mother liked them when she came to visit so I ordered her a set also. They do the job, I just with that the pepper would grind a little finer. These are also good for grinding herb and spice mixtures, it makes it convenient when you consisently use the same blend of spices you don't have to pull out all the different bottles.

if you want something to put on the table, this is a great option. It's elegant and easy to use.

But a little fragile, you need to carefully remove the parts to put addicional salt/pepper.

People that want to use for cooking (not only serving) and cooks a lot I recommend think twice to buy this product because the container for the salt/pepper are very smal and it uses a lot of batteries. This is good for serving and impress all your guests.

Delivery was good and fast. But never order this product if it's says "in-stock soon", I ordered a second one because I want to give as a gift, and keep waiting for a month and the order was canceled by them.

My boyfriend's friends have the expensive Salt and Peppermill set - Peugeot - and he told me several times how fun it was to use them. At a Thanksgiving party at their place I got to play with those too and decided that my man deserves such a set. After reading all the reviews I decided to try MIU set instead - and I love it and my boyfriend loves it! We use both mills everyday - it's been almost 2 months. I even gave the same set as a gift to my best friend - now she and her husband enjoy the mills too. I only wish the finest setting was a little "finer" so we could enjoy the process of "lighted salting and peppering" a little longer each time - it's fascinating! But we got used to it and are happy with my gift.

I have had my set of MIU Salt and Pepper mills for a few years now. I absolutely love them. The lights show you how much salt or pepper you are dispensing on your food. The batteries last about a yr. A little costly to purchase 10 batteries (AA), but it's worth it. I bought my son and his wife a set for their anniversary and they like them too. A must and a lot of fun when you have company. They are always so impressed!

After reading many reviews on many different grinders, these appeared to be the best.
They have all the features that were recommended by the professional reviews.
A point was noted by several others in their reviews was, the number of batteries required. I would agree, six AAA per grinder seems a bit much.
I've only had these about two months, time will tell how durable they are.

Bought these over a year ago and love them. It is great to be able to grind salt and fresh ground pepper into a recipe with one hand. So easy to use and the lights are nice to see how much you are grinding on your food. The batteries last forever. Have started to give them as gifts. Highly recommend!
