I bought a hand-held sifter with the trigger mechanism and nearly broke my hand sifting just 3 cups of flour. Go for the rotary one if you must and bypass the trigger sifter. I recently read The Cake Bible and Rose Levy Beranbaum had the greatest tip about using the food processor for a few whirls. I am still using a strainer and while it takes forever, I don't nearly need to kill all my hand muscles just to make a cake.
