Temp-tations Old World 16-piece Oven-to-Table Set
16 Piece Set
I got my set in black a few months ago, and really like it. I have not had any cracks, chipping, paint color issues, etc. My lids fit perfectly fine. Cleanup is easy as well - I put mine in the dishwasher, normal cycle, heat dry and no problems. I made sure to read the care directions insert that came with the product.
When I received my Temptations, I was so very excited....We have used it so many times...I love the way it looks, and it is very very versatile....Each piece is great...especially the two baking sizes...it washes very well...very happy with the set...especially that I got it on easy pay, which makes it very good
I was disappointed with the lids ... they do not fit snug - they slide around! Not sure what the purpose of a lid is if does not fit!!! I do get lots of compliments when I use the dishes but still not too happy with the lids. Sorry I spent $90.00 on this set.
Hey all you peeps out there, throw away your corning ware like I did and buy Temptations. You'll be glad you did. I have so many of these pieces and love everyone of them. I just gave this set to my nephew for their wedding shower. He wrote me a thank you note saying, Instead of baking with them, he wants to display them. They loved it in the color Black. No regrets from me. Thanks Tara for a wonderful product.
I ordered the O.W. green. All the pieces are beautiful no cracks or chips. Packaged perfectly. I love the little paint imperfections. There is even a small finger print, shows this was painted by a real person. The lid-it is soooo nice.
Junk Junk Junk
Do not even waste your money. I have purchased 4 sets of Temptations, all sets had pieces crack or chip in less than 6 months of ownership with rare usage. BEWARE of replacement policy/warranty. Items are rarely in stock and they charge you an obnoxious amount to ship them when they are. Customer Service is lacking. While they are beautiful to the eye, I will stick with the more expensive options. This is definitely a case of getting what you pay for. Junk. I wish QVC would get rid of this brand and offer something more substantial. My Temptations purchases are the only QVC purchases I regret.
I love everything about this set! Unfortunately my sister sent the lasagne pan to my fathers and it fell out and broke, so I need another ASAP! I want the speckled print in everything (Jasper - I think) to add to my collection. Now if I can just teach the boys to keep their mitts off them and not use them as cereal/salsa bowls I will be very happy!
Wish I had listened to the reviews
I have a couple of sets in the grey Old World - lucky me - they discontinued that color. Maybe it is for the best. I just had the 9x13 cookie sheet crack and break completely down the middle into two pieces. This was in the oven for 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Wonder what would have happened at 450 degrees? Now I am afraid to use any of the rest of my items for fear I will be cleaning my oven over and over. Would be awful to have a pan actually break in two if it was being used for a lasagna or something equally messy.
Had the grey not been discontinued, I might have purchased more of these and be out even more money. Replacing it - not going to happen. Even if I could still get the color, I will not pay more for shipping out a replacement piece than I paid for the original piece. Kind of a big rip off and makes the guarantee look like a scam.
I might use these for serving dishes but I have plenty of them so my money was totally wasted. I guess you get what you pay for - not very expensive Temptations is just plain cheap.
SURVIVED OVEN BAKED RIBS DISASTER
A family member used my large rectanguler baker to bake ribs. She put the barbeque sauce on the ribs, placed them back into the oven to bake a little bit more, but somehow FORGOT about them. Ribs burned to a crisp . . . and the sauce was black as coal on the baker. Used scrub pads, brushes . . . nothing was coming off. I thought my wonderful baker was finished, but I tried one more thing. I used a well known oven cleaner; sprayed it all over the baker and let it sit overnight. Began washing it the next morning, and with a little scrubbing, it started to come off. Had to repeat the process a few more times, but it all came off. Not a lot of cookware on the market these days that can survive burnt on food like that.
LOVE THIS SET
Great color and lots to work with, bright color and easy to clean. Appears high end!
Disappointed is an understatement !!!!!
I have five different sets of temptation old world and they are beautiful on your table to serve .The price is good ,however,the quality is not .I had five pieces that all cracked and of course it was the most essential pieces.the 13 x9 the size right below it ,2oval pieces and one loaf pan.I contacted QVC which in turn gave me the phone number to Temptations.I contacted them by phone and email and told them about the poor quality of their product.They said they will replace the broken pieces ,but,I have to pay 9.99 shipping for the pieces.I told them I paid shipping when I purchased the items and why do I have to pay again for there products that are no good.I was told the items were on back order and would ship in a few weeks and that they no longer sold the broken pieces I had in yellow and would replace them in different old world color,like I had a choice.Well two weeks turned into two months before I saw two out of five products .I continued to call the customer service at temptation for months and kept getting same answer on back order .How can that be when they sell hundred thousands of them on QVC every day .I have put in complaints to company and never get a response from them.it has been over six months and I finally received the last two pieces and now I have mix matched sets.So disappointed in company
Love this set. I use it for entertaining purposes. I've used it during holidays and have received compliments. I did have to contact Temp-tations customer service (which is out of this world), since I received a dish that was seriously warped and didn't fit any lids, but I called their customer service (not QVC) and without hesitation, they replaced it. It was fast and easy. I was going to give it 4 stars because of the warped dish, but since C/S (Temptation's) was quick to ship and replace, it deserves 5.
