    "Please let us know the last price of the soni mixer grinder"
    is the correct sentence .
    Because FOR is used toexpressthe time being.

    Either "of" or "for" will work with prices. I believe "of" is more common, but "for" is commonly used.

    The idea of "for" is that one pays money for something.

    I think it would be better to say;

    Please let us know the latest price of (or for) the Sony mixer/grinder
