Various Brands of San Marzano Tomatoes

prio girl | Jan 27, 2013 08:43 AM

I would like to hear CH's opinions on canned San Marzano tomatoes.
1) Costco carries the brand Nina and the label says San Marzano - are they true San Marzano tomatoes or 'San Marzano style'?
2) My other question is with regard to the Cento brand. I believe they are true San Marzano tomatoes...am I correct?
I notice one big difference between Cento canned tomatoes and the other brands (like Nina) that I've tried: The Cento tomatoes are of a softer consistency and packed in a thick sauce. I think they are nicer to cook with and make a very good sauce.
3) Many other brands have tomatoes of a harder texture and are packed in liquid.
What are your opinions are what brands do you prefer to use?
Grazie!
