My salt & pepper mills arrived withn a few days of ordering. I followed the directions and charged them right away. They work great! My husband had a stroke and can only use one hand. His favorite thing is pepper. He only likes fresh ground pepper, and he uses alot. I really got tired of twisting the regular type of peppermill, espeially when I broke my wrist. They are so easy to use, just a puch of a button, and the charge lasts long time. I would recommend these to any one, they are very elegant looking and you can see when they have to be filled.
This is an excellant and very elegant product. I completely recommend this product for purchase and use or a gift. It looks lovely on my countertop and when in use it's beautiful lighting looks really great above the food and it makes it very easy to see how much seasoning is being released onto the food.
These units are smaller and lighter weight than the ones I owned previously that I was replacing because one of my earlier units stopped working... The motors in these units are not nearly as strong as the ones in the units I replaced and the capacities are about half the size as my earlier ones... These look nicer and would be fine for the dinner table but I use mine primarily for when I cook... If I had it to do over, I would look for stronger units with larger capacities... One advantage these units do have is that with the clear chamber cover you can easily see how much salt or pepper remains... Overall, these are probably fine for the average person at the dining table but not heavy enough for the serious cook...

I have had every auto salt/pepper mills you could imagine, these are the best I have owned. The grind settings work the best of all my previous mills...from fine to course. I can only hope that Cuisinart will continue to make these. The very best for giving that perfect gift.

The set looks great and the mills work great for pepper. They don't work very well for salt because too much comes out! I tried all of the different settings, but you can't control how much salt comes out.
