Foley Food Mill VS NorPro Sauce Master Food Strainer ... Thoughts?

Good Morning All ...
I purchased a Foley Food Mill about 5 years ago and have to say I like it alright. I've been disappointed with some of the results when I do tomatoes and in recent uses, I've noticed what looks like oil coming off the bottom into my sauce.

A friend of mine is selling her NorPro for a reasonable price ($30) and I'm just wondering if I might be happier with that. I've read the reviews on Amazon and it seems most of the complaints have to do with user error.

I've always appreciated the feedback I get here so am looking for your perspectives ... stay with my Foley, switch to the NorPro, or would both be advantageous?

Thank you!

I don't know a THING about either the NorPro or the Foley, but if I were buying a food mill, it would be one of the following (depending on how much money I have ATM)

Roma Mill
Victorio Mill

Note that none of these handle seeded grapes all that well. The Squeezo won't handle them at all; there are aftermarket augers for most other food mills to handle the large grape seeds, but not (for some odd reason) the Squeezo.

The Victorio has a motor you can add; allegedly the Roma does as well, but I've never seen that one.

I'll just plant seedless concords and not have to worry about it, LOL!
