We bought an electric motor driven strainer years ago that was made in Italy. It cost around 260 dollars and has been worth every penny. We only run cooked tomatoes through because it is much more efficient that way and much quicker. I really love it when it is time to make Pappadew hot sauce because removing all those seeds is so easy. It is better if I quickly use the blender on the cooked peppers to break them up more before running them through the Spreemy strainer in order to get more of the good stuff.

We like to put up more concentrated tomato puree and we do that by cooking the tomatoes first then draining off all the excess water and then processing the tomato pulp which leaves us with a much thicker sauce. Sometimes we use the drained water in soups but usually it is just tossed. We found through experience that cooking much of the water out results in tomatoes that don't taste as fresh and by eliminating most of the cooking before freezing the tomatoes they are much better than anything that can be bought at the store and so much fresher tasting.

I couldn't see a picture Worth. Here is a link to one similar to the one we have or maybe it is the same. If you shop around you might find it cheaper. It really makes short work of removing seeds from the soft cooked tomatoes and peppers.
