Temp-tations 2-Piece Completer Set
I love love love this set! I ordered the black and white floral lace. It's beautiful!
This set is simply beautiful. The paintwork is perfect and it looks great paired with my original old world pieces. I have used both pieces for serving and for displaying fruit. I could not be more pleased with this set. Excellent purchase.
This is the first Temp-tations item I have purchased and I will definitely be purchasing more. It is beautiful and elegant. I gave this to my daughter and she lit up when she opened it. I'm hoping that more items will be available soon.
QUALITY IS MISSING
This is my second time trying to post my review about this set. My first review was never
posted, which makes me wonder why. If low ratings are always posted, as well as high ratings, then what happened to my first (low) rating review? My set was missing paint, and where there was paint ... it was very sloppy. I have ordered many pieces of Temptations, and the quality of the items that I receive, keeps getting worse and worse. Why would anyone mail out pieces with paint missing? I wonder if anyone checks these pieces before allowing them to be sold???? It appears not. I have been very disappointed in the last 3 Temptation items ordered from QVC. Where is the Quality control? There are so many complaints over the years, about the paint quality of temptations, that I wonder why QVC is not doing something about it? I would order more from them, if only they would fix the sloppy paint problems.
This is a really nice completer set for the dishes I bought. Good quality, unique shapes.
I just within the last few months started to purchase Temptations Items and I am so glad that I did! This piece like all the others is no exception. Both items are painted beautifully and are flawless. I'm really loving the floral lace and am sad that some of the items I wanted are sold out or no longer available. Hopefully they bring them back :o) Will be great for large salads or even as a fruit bowl for the center of my table. I would love a large water pitcher with large platter in the green floral lace.
More Vivid, Please!
Love this completer set! The ruffled edges are lovely, and the Vivid pattern is painted beautifully. I bought the OW Vivid in green, and it looks great with all of my OW green, OW Vivid Green, and FL Green pieces.
I was out of town on family business for more than 30 days, now too late to return. Glaze on bowl is cracked all the way around, two small chips missing as well. Chips are no where in box, and box in excellent shape, so really does not look like it happened en route. Does not seem like this box made quality control at warehouse. Also glaze not very great quality. Platter seems ok. Hopefully this item will still be available in about a month, so I can re-order and replace the bowl, and that second attempt will be ok, as I really want to complete my set. But, this was on back order for such a long time ( wait list ), so this was really disappointing. Sorry I was unable to get it returned within the 30 days. I am hoping this was just a rare lemon, because my other pieces of temptations are great. In one casserole dish, the wire rack it came with was not level, but I bent the leg and was able to level it out. I know QVC ships out a lot of orders, but they may need some better inspection/quality control to make certain their customers do not get items like this.
I probably own 30 or more pieces of Temp-tations and this is the most beautiful piece I own. The bowl is large for a big salad for at least 5 people and the platter is beyond words. I love them both. I can hardly wait to entertain and show it off. I know everyone will love it as much as I do.
I started with the blue old world, went to green then to confeddi . also have red poka dot. Over the years I have given the others away and now have about ten pieces of the confeddi . Pardon my spelling. Oh yes 5 spice.
I always say I am not going to buy any more, running out of places to put it, but then Tara comes up with something like this and I can't pass it up
I have several other pieces of the Vivid in orange, love it all. But this set is not painted very well, I sent it back, as the orange was very pale......not VIVID. Love the dishes, but the orange even on the platter was very sloppy, and not bright in color. Tried the reorder, again, badly done. Very disappointed, I just kept the second set, but will not order anymore. Customer service is excellent, but quality control is not up to standards.
Nice enough ... I guess...
I got this in Cranberry and it doesn't match the other Cranberry temptations I have (not even in Vivid). which for red shades is important. The color is much more saturated than the regular OW pattern (and I mean MUCH more) so it just looks like something else entirely. On the functional side the bowl I will use, the platter I'm really not sure. All in all this should've been part of the set with all the dishes to make it worthwhile. Not bothering to return it but I'm going to stop getting these. After all how many bakers do you need...?
wow, need to get more peices
I am glad I had this on wait list - I got the 16 peice dishes when it was the special but they had sold out of this set and I wanted something to match my dishes - I am really glad I waited for it because it is very nice, I plan to get some more pieces to match - right now, I have 4 sets of temptation dishes all different with bakeware sets to macth each one as I did not want a set of 16 peice place setting the same color as I like variety and it has worked well - when I am in a mood to use a different place set color then I go for it -
