Rated 5 out of 5 by grandma buddy I love this 9x13
I ordered this 9x13 before the holidays in the cranberry and have used it several times. I was not disappointed, it is beautiful. I know people have said their temptations have cracked, my daughter being one of them. I always wash mine by hand and not submerge them in water or I place them in the dishwasher. so far I have not had a problem with cracking.

I bought this for myself,then bought one for my daughter. My daughter's started to crack soon after she started to use it. Mine cracked later. Both are unusable. Very disappointed in product and won't buy Temptations again.

My daughter and I have purchased several of Temptations products. The large rectangle bakers are simply not worth the money. Every one we purchased had cracked in or around the corner or through the bottom. Have not had this problem with the set of dinnerware or the small baker that came with the insulated tote.

I received this baker and it is beautiful and painted nice. However, the server that came with the set is very cheap and poorly constructed. It broke the very first time I used it! Temp-tations would replace it but I would have to pay $10.00 shipping. Considering the poor quality I would not risk paying for shipping on another one. So my loss!
Rated 3 out of 5 by rofund Bummer! Had to Return
I ordered this baker in the Confetti. It is different than all the other confetti pieces, it has none of that washed out lavender color. Instead, the colors are deep, vibrant, and beautiful!! In person it is just as stunning as it is on tv.
The reason I had to return it, is that it had two major flaws. First, one of the handles was very visibly sloped downward, it kindof looked like it was in the process of melting. You could even feel the difference when holding the baker by the handles....one hand was way off kilter. Second, one of the long sides of the baker was bowed out pretty significantly. It was like one side was a rectangle, and the other side was trying to turn into an oval. I've never seen such a thing! I have four other T 13x9's, and they are all perfect rectangles.
The flaws were structural, so I was worried about the long term strength of the baker. I would have tried for a replacement, but the confetti showed sold out and I didn't want another color.
I'm hoping that my baker was just a fluke, and hopefully everyone else got a beautiful piece!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Barbara 1957 Second one ordered
THIS IS MY SECOND ONE THAT I RETURNED. THE HANDLES ON THE FIRST ONE WERE MIS-SHAPED. DENTED IN ON ONE SIDE. VERY OBVIOUS. THIS SECOND ONE THAT I'M RETURNING, ONE OF THE HANDLES IS DENTED IN AND TURNED DOWNWARD. NOT LEVEL LIKE THE OTHER HANDLE. OTHERWISE VERY PRETTY.

This piece is so beautiful, it was the packaging that worried me though. Everything else that I've bought had much sturdier packing when shipped. bought it for a wedding gift. Hope they will be as excitied as I am.

I bought the old world in eggplant. It is a nice size piece and of excellent quality and design. Using it to bake in and then to put it on the table makes it all so easy!.

Wow. First piece of Temp-tations I have gotten that has NOT blown me away...what in the world happened on the production line?!? First of all, I ordered my color of OW black to match the rest of my collection...in this case, I am so happy I did because this baker had SEVERAL minuet quality control issues. However, due to the black color I was able to conceal them myself. To start, I will be fair to say the piece itself is stunning - certainly a unique edition with the embossing. But, if you're going to do something different, "outside the box" and turned up a notch, then please, please, PLEASE ensure it is executed properly. I have a few small dots (about pen tip size) in many areas of the black flowers where paint was missing. One petal of a flower was completely missing all of its paint towards the tip! Thankfully, it is on the very bottom edge of the piece and near a corner so quite inconspicuous, so I understand how it may have been accidentally overlooked. But the issues continue... my spatula is not of sound quality at all. I can clearly see it's been glued together, almost with the look of a glue gun. When I held it and shook back and forth, it felt unstable as if the base is not as securely attached as it could be. The painting is also not as precise as it should be. It's not poor by any means, but also not entirely up to even the handpainted standards that I know this brand is capable of. Lastly, I can understand why others complain about the "thin paint" issue on the inside; mine is mostly well done and well saturated, but again, it is also solid black. Still, a few pin-sized dots again without paint but good thing they are near the corners and quite small so they are not very noticeable since I cannot correct those areas as they will come in contact with food. I also have a brush stroke on the inside corner of one area, but again thankfully that's pretty much all. Lastly, I had a very noticeable quarter inch long section on the top fluted edge with thinned paint. I chose to fix this as well since it was bugging me and is not a direct food surface. One small area on the fluting also has a few tiny bumps, but they are a "1" rate on the scale of concerns I have with this product. Temp-tations can do better!! I am an avid Nista and will continue to grow my collection, but I hate to say overall, I am disappointed with this piece. Still, it is beautiful (especially since I corrected my flaws) and my rack that came with is wonderful. I will see if my fixes hold up, if not I am sending it back and trying again with a replacement. I am just worried about the gamble of whether or not my next one would be worse. Is it worth it? My piece is decent, but I expected more for this price point. Now I am stuck and unsure how to proceed. Shouldn't be so...we are purchasing with the expectation of quality, that is what should be received.

This baker arrived today...the weight and thickness of it is impressive and the spatula is also of superior quality. Confetti had sold out so I ordered the green and it is beautiful. I have a few other Temptation items and all look and perform great.

Besides being a beautiful 13x9 baker in Confetti, it works as presented. So happy I ordered before airing on ITKWD because Confetti Old World sold out during show. I received mine the same day it aired and I've used it already. Tara, every piece that I've ordered has arrived in perfect condition and I am very pleased with the design and colors etc. There are too many negative reviews so I am giving a 100% positive review and maybe I'm just lucky but this is my testimony of a great product. By the way Tara, I ordered your very first set of 3 Oval bakers years ago that started with the rattan baskets. They were solid colors (I purchased the green) and they are still working for me. Easy cleanup and the best results for any food item used in them. I like the iron holders instead of the original baskets. I'm sticking to Old World patterns and my Chicken Enchiladas baked the best ever over using my old glass Pyrex dish which is plain & ugly. Thanks so much!

I purchased the Baker in red and impressed with how pretty it is. The red on the inside and the embossed detail on the outside is so pretty. I do have a problem with the spatula and cradle that came with the baker. The spatula arrived broken the rod on the inside is broken off from the decorative handle for starters and is really quite cheaply made. I have others so I just threw it in the trash. I'm not sure I will use the wire tray that the baker sits in either. It does not sit right and is wobbly, not what you want a hot pan to do. Then the feet may scratch the table top unless it is really protected well. The packing on the item was adequate I can't see returning the baker because that in itself is lovely. Temp-tations needs to replace the spatula with one of better quality, even if it does cost a few dollars more to get this item right. I would still buy this for the baker itself!
