spice mill?

I have a pepper mill, but I'd like to get a spice mill so that I can start toasting and grinding my own whole spices. I don't really know what kind of spice mill I should get. Should I get an electric one, or hand-operated? Will just another pepper mill work? Can I use a coffee grinder instead? Should I get a mortar and pestle as well?

Any suggestions for a nice spice mill would be appreciated; bonus points if your suggestion is also dishwasher-safe :)
