I have a fantastic Breville juicer, but I am wondering if an electric tomato sieve works better for canning tomato sauce. When I used the juicer for sauce, it seemed to leave a lot of the tomato, which I composted. I am wondering if the sieve would keep more of the tomato for canning use. Anyone have any advice?

I use a food mill. This one - MIU Stainless-Steel Tomato/Vegetable Mill. You put mill base over a bowl with your choice o plates inserted, dump in whatever you want to make smooth and turn the handle. Anything like tomato skin & seeds remains behind.

I'd use a food mill or a sieve to press the seeds/skins out. Seeds in sauce or juice can make it have a strange taste.

If you process a lot of tomatoes, do yourself a favor and get a Victorio Strainer. It's a wonderful product, I have been using mine for 30 years.Victorio Model 250 Food Strainer/Sauce Maker

If you have a KitchenAid mixer, they have an attachment that does the same thing as a Victorio Strainer.

I agree with using the food mill. To make vegetable juice, just add your carrots, celery, onion, fennel, etc. to the tomatoes and it makes wonderful vegetable juice for chilis and soups, or to drink alone. So good.

I am looking for a sieve that I can use to get the seeds out of cooked down tomatoes and/or my scoupanongs. Strainers do not work and it seems it is impossible to get the fruit out and leave seeds. HELP PLEASE. Phyllis Muller

Phyllis, you can easily find a food mill right here on Amazon - there are a dozen or more to choose from. I got mine at Tj Maxx in the housewares department and any decent kitchen store should have one, along with most restaurant supply houses. (You don't need to own a restaurant to shop there.)
