Favorite brand of canned San Marzano tomatoes and why

I have tried CENTO, and a few others. Definitely not HUNTs.

Though technically not San Marzano tomatoes, I like Muir Glen organic whole peeled the best. They consistently are the best from can to can.

I have tried these [http://www.amazon.com/Carmelina...] ones a couple of times and enjoy them. But SeriousEats.com did a taste test awhile ago and Luigi Vitelli scored the highest of all.

This month's Cook's Illustrated was pretty emphatic about choosing Muir Glen over the Italian brands, even the ones with a DOP certification. I just tried them in a lamb stew last night, and I'm not so sure the stew tasted a little sweet and not quite as deeply interesting as I'd expected. But I could be wrong, as I didn't taste tomatoes on their own.

And by the way, Cooks also like Hunt's.
