It is easy to clean (comes apart, plastic parts go in the upper tray of the dishwasher). Unless you plan on using it throughout the year or need it for commercial purposes, I'd say no to an electric one. The result is not the same as running the tomatoes through a juicer.
I hate my food mill. I never use it. It is too much bother to clean.
Sounds like good advice to me
Ive got about 1/10 the amount of tomatoes as you do.
I feel the same way about my mill, and i just don't think its as efficient as other devises ( such as the one you mentioned above).
