Temp-tations Old World 16-piece Dinnerware Service for 4
Did a 10 year old paint these or someone with bad eyesight? The paint is all over,huge smudges, accents clearly in the wrong spots, and no paint in other places. Temptations would be insane to keep hand painting these. I appreciate supporting mankind but when you hire the blind your better off just not producing when it's garbage. Just get a machine to do it,it would be more cost effective and MUCH better looking. It costs EVERYONE to send something back. This is my second set in blue and like the first it's still totally unacceptable as a product.
I bought this several months ago and while it is beautiful, it is very thin and chips easily. Not of the same quality as the bakeware.
LOVE OW BLUE
Bought a set of ow blue at a QVC outlet and it is beautiful. After it became apparent that this set was being replaced with a new configuration I looked every day for this to become available in ow blue so I could at least have service for 8. I was happy to see that Tara either found more sets or had more made. Arrived in great shape yesterday and my Easter table is complete! Of course I already have just about everything else to match.
Six Months Of Use Update
I waited for six months to write a review because I think it would be more helpful than those recommending straight out of the box. I have two unchipped bowls, three unscratched plates and three uncracked cups. I was disappointed with the dishes but still highly recommend the baking ware. Maybe because they are thicker?
I love these dishes I have the blue and a bought the green as a gift they hold up well
I bought this dinnerware in the black and it looks like the paint bled at the end of the coffee cup and also on the dishes, I was very disappointed with the product. I would not recommend this in the black. I am embarrassed to use it when I have people over for dinner.
I purchased a service for 12 of this dinnerware. I also purchased many of the baking and oven pieces.
I have had them for about 4 years. From the beginning I noticed that some of them started to check right away. I had stoneware before and did not think a lot about it. But, as I used the dishes some of the baking pieces cracked completely thru and I had to throw them away. (I did receive a 9x13 replacement for one of the pieces.. Took 3 months to get it.)
As a lot of the dinnerware pieces chipped and checked I was going to order some replacements, but to my dismay they have been discontinued!! I am so sorry that I got rid of my old 25 year old stoneware that was in better shape then the Temptations after only 4 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I have to go thru the time and EXPENSE of replacing everything again>
Gorgeous as always!!!!!
Very nice. Not overly heavy. I have a problem carrying heavy bowls, plates etc. so the Temptations works for me & looks pretty too. The Cranberry goes great with the Tuscan design in my kitchen. I recommend this line highly.
NICE BUT NOT GREAT
Got 2 sets last year but am disappointed that the edges chip easily (thus the 4 star rating). I handle them with great care so don't understand. The rims on the bowls and plates make them easy to handle. The bowls are a really nice shape and size. The cups are a cute shape but too small. Would like to see them in a larger size - or the newer shape mugs offered in sets of 4 or 8 separately. (hint, hint) Hope that Tara will bring us the newer shape mugs and also bring back the original canister set in a larger 4 piece set. The original set I got was so pale in color that I gave them away as they didn't match my other confetti pieces.
Unhappy if Discontinuing!!!
Please don't tell me you are discontinuing this dinnerware set! I have been waiting to buy this set in Fallfetti (which I assume will not return until Fall of '14). I already have this set in green and was wanting the fallfetti and maybe brown or spice to go with. I am not a fan of the new dinnerware set and the fact that you discontinue sets when you come out with new ones. That way we cannot match or replace dishes if need be! The reviews for the new set don't appear to be favorable either.
Not rating high or recommending because looks like discontinuing. Otherwise I would rate high and recommend!
Gotta Love Temptations!!
I started collecting temptation products a couple of years ago and I have never been disappointed. These dishes are the perfect size, clean up is a breeze and they are so beautiful!!!
All of the temptation products are worth the price. If you are on the fence about collecting temptations, I advice you to do so.
A Little Disappointed!
Don't get me wrong, I love temp-tations bakeware, but I bought 3 sets of the confetti dinnerware and a bowl has already chipped. My old dishes were more durable and I've had them 20 yrs. and I thought it was time for a change. I seem to handle these more like china! Bakeware I recommend.
