I love my adjustable pepper grinder from OXO. I had a catastrophic incident happen where one of the plastic grinders broke over a pot of chili, and I had to fish out as man by pepper corns as possible. Check it out: https://www.amazon.com/OXO-Accent-Pepper-Grinder-Stainless/dp/B001CDP6EE
If so, I had that, and it's a total turd. The settings collar is meaningless, as the grinder will just produce random-ass grinds of no certain size. On the finest setting, it would still spit out chunks as big as 1/8th of a peppercorn. It also took like 60 grinds or more to make anything like carbonara.
My unicorn makes as much pepper in like 4 grinds as the OXO did in like 20+. It's all very even, and I can actually adjust the coarseness.
I love OXO stuff, but I will not ever recommend that pepper grinder to anyone. All ceramic grinders are inferior, as far as I can tell from research.
I'm happy with mine, it's a little over £20 atm. Fast grinding, click to adjust, no mess, non slip grip and really easy to fill.
I’ve used many brands, at different price points including premium ones and Cole & Mason that somebody else mentioned. I’ve concluded that any electric grinder is a waste of money, and also the only ones that have lasted long enough to be worth the money over a cheap store brand pair, areOxo Good Grips. I have however never tried Peugeot, that a few people in this thread have suggested.
I fail to see how most pepper grinders wouldn't be BIFL. I've had this for years and don't expect it will break any time soon. The grind size is adjustable so I think would suit you well.
I got this one from OXO a few years ago and I still like it. The grind is still nice, and the range is pretty big. The only problem that I have is sometimes when one of my hands is dirty, but what I am making needs a little more seasoning, I can't quite use this one handed.
This one: easy to fill, easy to use, easy to clean. https://smile.amazon.com/OXO-Good-Grips-Pepper-Grinder/dp/B001CDP6EE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1508640815&sr=8-1&keywords=oxo+pepper+grinder
