The only two cons, if i had to pick them, would be that they are top heavy due to the batteries, and they struggle with coarse salt.
In regards to the coarse salt, if you "bump" it or pulse it instead of just holding it down it WILL get through it and probably keep going once you get it going. It also seems to have gotten better at grinding salt with use over time - or maybe moisture the salt has gathered makes it easier to grind? *see update below - new motor does not struggle*
If the light stops working, it's probably because it was put back together with the contacts on the wrong side. Done this a few times, but easily fixed.
These are still holding up pretty well with daily use, however I DID have a motor die in the salt grinder (actually it looks like the brushes burnt up - they were completely gone).
FIX: get a MOT2N, they're $2-$3 a piece. Now this isn't a plug in fix, you'll have to disassemble it, pull the gear assembly out, and SOLDER leads (or get small crimp on), but it is a CHEAP fix and relatively easy if you're somewhat capable with a soldering iron and a screwdriver. I ordered a couple extra for future burn outs.
* Make a note or take a picture of the gear layout so you can put it back together correctly. I laid them out in the order I took them out and reversed it when re-assembling.
* Take note of polarity, the wires are NOT color coded so it would be easy to mix them up when re-attaching. I did one side at a time.
* Don't over torque the screws or you'll strip the plastic! Just needs to be snug.
* The drive gear on the motor is friction fit, just pry it off with a screwdriver and push it back on the new motor.
FYI the new motor destroys salt now, where as it would struggle before, so this might actually be an upgrade! Will be interesting to see if that continues or gets weaker over time.
PROS: Brushed stainless steel finish, battery operated (takes 6 AAA), has a plastic retaining sleeve that goes around the batteries after putting them in (In the old one I had to put a heavy rubber band around the batteries, as if the unit was dropped or fell over, inevitably one or more batteries would get dislodged and one would have to open it up and "reseat" the batteries). This is a big improvement. It has an LED "headlight", so you can see how much pepper you're getting on your food. The grind is adjustable.
CONS: It takes 6 AAA batteries (no problem for me, since all 17 of my home theater remotes take AAA batteries, so I buy them several dozen at a time.
