To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This stuff is the worst truffle oil I've ever tried! It tastes like chemicals. I've also just seen they're spouting that it's 'extra virgin olive oil' but extra virgin means nothing has been added. As soon as anything is added to olive oil (truffles or flavouring) it automatically just becomes olive oil. Not even sure this IS olive oil. It tastes like cheap oil.
My family work in the Australian olive oil industry and this stuff is terrible! Will be lodging a complaint with Amazon to get a refund, and have them look into promoting a misleading product.
This stuff is amazing for the price. A little goes a long way and so far I've used it in soups, risottos, pasta and mixed with (a generous amount of) light olive oil, it makes a tasty dipping oil for focaccia. There's no point adding this during cooking as the heat kills the taste so add a tiny bit at the end.
A lot of reviews for similar products talk about foul/diesel taste and I don't know if this is because the oil is genuinely off or if it's due to people not having tasted truffles before because for me, they really were a taste acquired over the best part of a decade.
I could smell it a mile off and couldn't abide even a hint but the more I tried it in dishes, the more I grew to like and eventually love it.
If you haven't tried it before, either give it a go elsewhere first or get a small bottle like this and use it very conservatively (literally a drop at a time) until you find your happy place.
Some people have commented elsewhere that no oil this cheap will be authentic but even IF the taste is largely artificial, it's a great imitation as my palate can't distinguish between this and what I've had in the best restaurants. I will definitely buy this again.
Oh my goodness! I’ve never tried this before and bought it for myself as a treat out of curiosity.It arrived this morning and I’d read in a review that it was lovely on toast,so I went for it! It was absolutely gorgeous! So nice that I added a teaspoon to my chicken casserole tonight as well and my OH loved it without even knowing until I told him, so 5stars from him too! :) I know it’s a little expensive but it is worth every penny in my opinion. P.S I haven’t received this oil as a promotion or been paid in any way for my opinion.
I think this might just be the best truffle oil I have ever bought, I kept taking the cap of the first few days after I received it, the aroma is amazing, I won’t be buying any other brand, my wild mushroom speltotto is now famous in our house after a little drizzle of this on top
Really bold flavour from this particular brand of truffle oil, some can be a bit lacklustre. Adds an instant extra zing to risotto, salads, pasta, sauces... Anything really.
The only slight con for me would be that I always find the spout a little wide. It pours rather than drizzled so you're forced to use your thumb to stem the flow, otherwise you can easily use too much.
This oil is delicious. I have had much trouble finding such an oil and have bought inferior oils with much disappointment. It might seem expensive for a small bottle but it has a robust flavour and you only need a little to lift a dish from ordinary to wonderful. I love it drizzled on scrambled eggs as well as with lots of other things.
