Temp-tations 5-piece Old World Storage Set by Sistema
LOVE THEM..Would Order MORE..seals & locks secure
I read the reviews after I received this item...was shocked...this product is just perfect..the color Spice and design is wonderful...and as for Air Tight I have NO complaints...the seals and locks are very secure...I'm glad I didn't read reviews before ordering....if I have a need for more I SURELY WOULD order more......
Love this to go with my other Temptations. Got it in green and is matching my newly painted kitchen.
I wanted to like these but...
I ordered a set of these the day they were first on air mainly because I thought they would be a good replacement for my Lock & Lock's which have been getting stained and the lids warped (not happy!!). However, these are NOT great quality. I wouldn't say they are air tight at all and the latches on each side are loose and don't hold shut well. I decided to keep them because they don't stain like Lock & Lock's but I've been careful not to put anything in them for long periods of time.
Wonderful storage set
I have ordered two sets of these, blue and red. I have used the blue and love it. The red is a gift for my sister-in-law. I used most of the blue set sending meals up to my in-laws. I am returning for a set for my mother-in-law. The containers that are divided were great to send two sides in one container. I saw the reviews and decided I must review this set. Also, I like the fact I am able to reheat in the microwave since they BPH free.
Wish these were Lock and Lock
This set is okay but it is not the quality of lock and lock. I would not reorder.
Very pretty and practical
I would highly recommend these. I love the variety of a double-sided dish. They are very pretty. Would highly recommend.
I bought two sets of these when they first were presented...thought..wow...these will be amazing. They even told these would be great canisters so I guess it was my mistake thinking these would be airtight like the lock and lock set I had. I put my flour and sugar and such in them..washed up the lock and lock set. In a couple of days my sugar was hard as a rock. I knew then..nope these were not going to work. I washed it out and put water in it to test it. It let all the water run out. NOT AIR TIGHT! They would be great for craft things or serving from. Just not for storage. Only a fair rating because of this.
Multiple disappointments with this Temp-tations.
I love my Temp-tations but this product was a disappointment...note that this was ordered by someone in the house while I wasn't home, as a gift...I tried to cancel the order but it arrived anyway and was sent off as the gift. Three things...first, we were unable to cancel as it was one of those orders that is supposed to be IMMEDIATELY sent some place else for shipping (buyer beware as it happened on this, a Mally product and it's happening on some Clark's shoes). Second, these leak...I've had Sistema in the past and got rid of it because it's not like a Lock & Lock seal. Third...ordered Cranberry. Cranberry? It was brown! It was a VERY bad color match to Cranberry or should I say it was a good NON-color match. Tara...this was a miss.
Much Prefer Lock N Lock!!!!
Ordered 3 sets, wish I had returned. Liked the idea of the divided dish. Poor in quality and am very disappointed especially since I like all of my other Temptation items. I will donate them. I will not waste good cabinet space on such a poor product.
Not great for food storage
Luckily, I can store things others than food in these containers. They ARE very cute but not air/water tight. It's a shame and they're too expensive to be just "decor."
I do have to agree with other reviews that this set is of poor quality. They are not air tight, they do leak, the color of the lids are way off, ordered cranberry and they are more of a brown color, Way overpriced. I would return but I'm not going to waste the price of return postage. I will find some use for them but I will never purchase any more of them, nor would I recommend them to anyone.
I will stick with the tried and true Lock & Lock which I have many sets of and have given as gifts.
BUYER BEWARE !!!! NOT AIR TIGHT !!!
As soon as I received these containers I put water in each one of them to see if they leaked....I remembered from the presentation how many times they were touted as being air tight. Well, they leaked like a sieve!!! I went to QVC.com & watched the video presentation of them again just to see if I was wrong about them being presented as air tight. I wasn't wrong.... They can't be air tight if water POURS.... not leaks.... from them!! Give me Lock & Lock any day over this poor quality product! I'd give 'em minus 10 stars if I could. These were on their way back to QVC quicker than this review was written !!
