Ambiano Electric Salt and Pepper Mill- Aldi Review

Ambiano Electric Salt and Pepper Mill

Aldi is offering this Ambiano Electric Salt and Pepper mill again in this week’s ALDI Finds. Last time it was offered it looked interesting enough that I bought one to try out. This time it will be selling for $16.99 (previously $14.99) and be available November 30th, 2022.

This version looks like a slightly different from the one I purchased in 2021. It takes 4 AAA batteries per grinder instead of 6 AAAs and does not list a light as a feature. Overall the style is similar but I can’t speak to the quality of this version. My 2021 Ambiano Pepper Mill set is still going strong so hopefully these are similar quality.

My Review of the Ambiano Electric Salt and Pepper Mill Set (2021 version)

Taking it out of the box it feels well made and looks premium, I got the black version which is right in between glossy and matte with a brass/gold accent. After loading the six AAA batteries in each mill (included!) and loading the salt and pepper they do have a premium heft. The electric grinding is quiet, works well, and you can adjust the grind.

The integrated light is surprisingly helpful because it really lets you see how much is coming out. I thought the light was just a gimmick or only be helpful when I’m grilling but it is a nice feature. The current versions does not list the light feature online (check the packaging).

One of the things I don’t really like is the salt/pepper compartment. The clear area you see is the only space you have for salt and pepper. This is enough for salt but I would like a bit more for the pepper.

The second problem with the compartment is not the easiest to fill. It has a relatively small hole with a rod in the center so it is tough to pour in your salt/pepper and even using a funnel isn’t easy. It is doable to get it filled and the size is usable so it is not a deal breaker.

Overall I really like these for the price. At $15 I would not expect to get a pair of electric mills with batteries included. Most nice looking salt/pepper mills cost about $15 for one manual grinder. This one is a buy if you are looking for a new salt/pepper mill set. I haven’t had it long enough to know how durable it is or how the batteries last but I’ll update this review if things go bad.

Ambiano Electric Pepper Grinder vs The Competition.

Comparing it to what I can find on Amazon it seems like this electric pepper mill is probably the closest in style and functionality and the price as I am writing this. The main difference I see is it only needs 4 AA batteries vs the Ambiano’s 4 AAA batteries but batteries are included in Aldi’s version and they are not in the one I found on Amazon.

I bought these for my parents first $15. We previously invested in a $35 set from Amazon. This set is by far better quality and grinds the pepper to a consistent size while the Amazon purchase leaves us with big chunks of pepper. And the Ambiano set has a light. It was a great purchase!

The Ambiano Electric Salt and Pepper Mill Set was a fabulous <$20 bargain from Aldi's in Dec. I absolutely love, love, love them! I was very surprised to find the quality to be so good, especially for the price. You can adjust the grind however you like it and they even have a little light. The batteries last a long time even though they each take six AAA batteries.

Great Salt and Pepper Mill from Aldi

$15 for two electric mills that look great is an awesome deal and it even has a little light that is handy for seeing how much salt/pepper is coming out. I wish it was a little easier to load and held a bit more pepper but overall is a good buy from the aisle of shame!
