But you need to know what you are buying. These Cento tomatoes are 1) San Marzano sauce tomatoes; 2) they are NO LONGER D.O.P. certified 3) and this point is often overlooked, they are from the Sarnese Nocerino. They are the second best in terms of absolute flavor. Bright from proper acid, deep from proper natural salt/sugar balance. You probably cannot get better tomatoes fresh unless you know a specialty grower, or do it yourself and have no day job. Cento used to sell the D.O.P. certified, but no longer. Those now cost me an extra dollar or two.
The price per can is good. The best deal is if you have Amazon Prime and get regular shipments. I get three large batches per case, enough to feed the mob that forms on sauce day.
Most people are happy with the many good canned tomatoes, especially when you look at the poor genetically engineered ersatz "fresh" tomatoes at the supermarket. But if you are a maestro, these are what you want.
What a rip off! Furthermore, I'm told that this product can not be returned and no refund was offered. I'm not the only one complaining about the dented/ damaged/ rusted cans.
There is no excuse. Do NOT buy this product.
But when I received the shipment, it was a huge disappointment. It was a different product than what the photo promised. (I can buy the one that was delivered to me at my local grocery stores very easily.) Very disappointing.............
EVERY single can in a case was dented, and some cans had the beginnings of rust on the bottom.
Make sure you do not confuse these with Marzano...they are not...they are not as soft and sweet as Marzano's
If I could figure out a way to contact Amazon about these I would, (and am still looking for a way) before someone gets botulism from using these...
order at your peril...
Too bad, I thought I had found a great way to get Cento tomatoes, but THESE are not the same as the Marzano's, and are nowhere close to the same quality.
Try to get your local store to order San Marzano's for you...much better product and even though more expensive it sure is safer.
I did finally find a way to contact Amazon and alert them to this dangerous condition, which they are referring to management and marketing. If you will look at reviews on the various Cento products, many people are reporting this problem...BUYER BEWARE...Botulism can be fatal.
