Temp-tations Old World 16-piece Dinnerware Service for 4
So far, so good
Bought these because our previous dishes were cracking and chipping and they were Pfaltzgraff!. The set is quite nice but I was struck by how thin they are and am now concerned about breakage and chipping. Have several other pieces of bakeware which seem to be heavier. Also, quite disappointed with the size of the mugs...says 12oz, but, trust me, if you use a Keurig coffee maker and choose 12oz, watch out....it goes right to the top, leaving no room for creamer or anything else you would like to add....Gave it a 4 because haven't used it enough to determine the durability..Fingers crossedl
I bought enough sets to serve 24 settings. Their wonderful for get togethers and have enough place settings. I bought 6 sets for service of 4. I was sad that one of my bowls
had a chip on it, and I'm so careful with them, so I had to order another bowl to replace
the chipped one. I just hope no more chips, because I am one who is very careful with
these dishes. I was under the impression u didn't have to be that careful but I have
been and I still got a chip on my Beautiful brown bowl that goes with the sets I ordered.
I'm glad I have these dishes but paying $9.95 per chipped bowl or plate adds up. I hope
there won't be anymore. Thank u for ur beautiful pieces I just don't want to be afraid to
use my beautiful dishes.
I Love temptations!
This is my second set. . Wish the travel mugs were available
I received a set of 8 about a year ago as a gift. I have loved these dishes and needed more plates so I ordered another set. I was waiting for these pieces to come as open stock as I really only needed plates, not another entire set. I hope temptations will consider offering sets of just plates or bowls in the future in addition to whole place settings. My only complaint is the older dishes are significantly faded compared to the new set. This is not the difference in brush strokes. The older dishes are definitely faded. It is very apparent when setting the table using plates from the older set and the newer set--stands out quite significantly. This is the only reason I rated these a 3 and not a 5. Otherwise, I love all my temptations.
Best dinnerware ever
One of our friends gave us a piece of the bakeware for a housewarming gift. Since then we have been gaining our collection and could not wait to find the dinnerware set. We ordered only one set at first, and loved it so good that I bought a second set to make a 8 piece setting to surprise my wife. We have recycled our old dishes to other family members in need. Until we can get them hooked as we are. Love love love Temptations
Just received my two sets of old world dishes in cream color. they arrived in perfect condition. Was a little worried after I ordered them since I read the reviews after I ordered them and some of the reviews complained about bad paint jobs or broken and chipped dishes. EVerything arrived perfect and I look forward to using them.
I love these I ordered 3 sets!!!! I have never tried temp-tations before. Boy am i so glad i did! I also ordered 2 oven to table sets. I can't wait to see some new pieces in Spice please :-)
Love the set(s)!
I've been collecting the cream color for awhile but never had the dishes to match. I was happy to see the set come available with the color that i needed and I picked up the 2d set as well. Now I'm happy to have a service for 8. They arrived today and I just finished washing them and putting them away. I did not see any of the issues that some of the other reviewers are mentioning, but I don't meticulously inspect brush strokes. They look fine to me. I only had a very small chip on the bottom of one plate but not enough to worry about. I'm very pleased!
Love this set! Although the mugs need to be a little bit bigger. I use it everyday!
Love The Look, But...
I received a set of square bakers with metal holders a few years ago. Love them, so I asked for the dinnerware set when I bought my house. My mother obliged. They are truly beautiful, but have chips on everything but the mugs, most likely because I don't like them or use them except when I need to put out condiments. Sadly disappointed by this set. Wish I could send them back but after four months of use...
Where is the yellow
I have two sets of these dishes in yellow. I want to add to them but no more yellow. I have mostly all my temptations in yellow would love to add additional pieces but no yellow. I love this dish set so versatile so pretty on my table. Would love to see more pieces in yellow. Please Tara bring back the yellow.
Brush strokes messy....but nice dishes
This is my second set of dishes. I love the design. The brush strokes are a little sloppy in places....looks like they were rushed to get it finished....must be close to closing shift. Not as nice as my first set...but will do I suppose. I ordered the blue and really like the color, size and design just not a fan of the sloppy brush strokes in my second set of these dishes..
