Rated 4 out of 5 by j9tc Good product, but know this first
I have some of the bubble and brown pieces, purchased from QVC, and like them, but I think more information about them should be presented to customers before they buy. I am writing in response to two reviewers who wrote about issues with their products--one citing mold and the other telling about the product cracking.. Maybe my replies will be helpful.to them and other buyers.
To SA Texas - I wonder if the black marks on the unsealed bottom of this piece are just places where some of the pottery base material has flaked off. This can happen when the item is scraped across the oven rack or another surface where you slide it a bit when setting it down to rest, like on the burner grids on a range top. Such marks are dark and may resemble mold, but I think they're just the base material under the part that flaked off. Just my opinion from experience.
To ma in KC: On one of Rachel Ray's QVC presentations a caller asked her why her bubble and brown item cracked when she used it in the oven. Rachel answered that the product does not tolerate sudden temperature changes and that it should never be put into an already preheated oven. Set it in the oven first and then begin the preheating, Also, after baking, the product should be allowed to cool down to room temp before putting into the refrigerator.
I like my products, but I didn't see this advice in the description on qvc.com or on the printed inserts that came with these items.
Rated 3 out of 5 by SA Texas Nice But Bottom is Porous and Molds
My main concern with these dishes is that the bottom of the pans are NOT sealed. I displayed these dishes over the weekend on the counter with fresh fruit in them and they picked up a little bit of moisture from wiping down the counters with regular soap and water- which very quickly turned into mold on the bottom of the dishes. I washed them on the sanitize cycle in the dishwasher and placed them in the cabinet but it seems as though the mold continued to grow, which was disappointing. These dishes are attractive, and I would like to see the manufacturing process change so that the bottom of these dishes are sealed like the rest of the dish. Please improve this product. I would pay more for a better product.
Also, These dishes look nice, but they are not as saturated in bright color as the photos.

Has anyone had any problems with craking with the finish? I have cracks in both dishes after cooking chicken.

I LOVE these, my only regret is that I didn't get them from QVC because I did pay more but they were worth the price. Just wish I had checked the Q first. The handles make you wonder why more bakeware don't have the handles. It just makes sense and I wish I had thought of it!

They are some nice bakers - I have baked chicken in these and the chicken never tasted better! Very neat idea with the holes on the sides.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Modiste68 Great Product!
I got these since I had the 7-piece set already. These sizes are great for everyday. The large oval baker from my 7-piece set was too large for the dishes I make for our family of three. That one is great for entertaining (for those bigger casseroles). Now I feel like I have the complete set - a size for whatever I need. I really like the way the handles were designed. The dish is very easy to carry. And they look great on the table. As one reviewer mentioned, the yellow is not too bright, and is a nice warm, golden yellow. Food actually looks better in it! This line is very versatile, and I highly recommend this set, along with all the coordinating ramekins, dippers, and the full 7-piece set. The only hard decision is which color!
Rated 5 out of 5 by lotstoshop I love them!!
I use them all the time. You'll be surprised how much they do hold.
I plan to replace a lot more of my old casserole dishes with these.
Rated 5 out of 5 by beecause23 Wonderful Set
I ordered this set to go with a larger set I got last year for Christmas. It's wonderful. The sizes are perfect for smaller entrees or larger side dishes. The yellow is perfect! Not too bright, not too drab. I will be ordering more Bubble and Brown pieces in the future for sure.
