Temp-tations Old World 24-piece Complete Oven- to-Table Set
Love & Hate
Love these & hate these dishes. Wonderful until they start to crack. Followed all care instructions to the letter. Dishes cracked any way. Emailed Temp-tations no response. Sad & disapointed
not hand painted, stamp is off
I read a few reviews about the stencil being off center and took my chances. I have about three pieces that are really bad a two more that are ok. I was disappointed that the large baker does not come with the trivet glass and the two small bakers do not come with the top baker. I watched the video but should have read the description of items listed. It's not listed so that's my fault.
Throwing out all my metal pans
Used this set for over 1 month. Even heating and roasting cannot be beat. Not going back to metal or other glass/ceramic pans/bakers, ordering more. I'm a first time buyer. This set is what every young person needs to start their own kitchen. I'm also going to buy the sets of plates and bowls at a later time. Amazing. Because the sets come with the plastic lids, you can throw out and never buy again, saran wrap.
Totally Done with Temptations
I've been buying this line from the beginning. The quality is so poor at this point that some pieces are used once and crack or break. It's attractive but just not worth it any longer. Customer service at Temptations was an insult. Though I was told they'd see what could be done and get back to me no one did. When I finally spoke to a person after three attempts they were willing to replace each broken piece at $10 shipping charge per piece!!! This is within their 1 year warranty. Actually, less than 3 months from when I purchased it! Seriously, I'll shop at the big box store for my replacement pieces. After reading other reviews it might be about time to review your quality control. Goodbye Tara...thanks anyway.
Only one Lid-IT
I was very disappointed that only the large oblong had a lid-its give you another baking piece and also a cover for when you are baking, I guess I didn't check the description closely enough.
I purchased this set as a bridal shower gift for my sons fiance. I have a different set and love it and know she will love it also.
Great choice for baking
I purchased my Old World (Cranberry) set last year and have found the bake ware to be exactly as advertised. A few months after purchase one of the casserole dishes cracked. I contacted Temptations and another dish was sent. When it arrived it was broken so I contacted Temptations again and they said they would send another dish. It took months to receive but I did receive the new dish. They stood by their product. I love that food that normally will stick in a dish cleans so easily. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase again.
Your everything set
I have always loved watching the live shows and quite often I would see something that would make me say wow. And maybe I'll order it or maybe not which is most often. But when I see something that I can get for my wife who has never owned a cookware set of this caliber I had to act. First of all last year when I showed her this set which the green on had sold out she absolutely loved it. But bcz that color sold out we had to wait until the next year's stock came out. So I set my reminder for the Temptation show and as soon as I got the email I got myself ready. I purchased the set and it is just as beautiful as seen on T.V. Now that we actually have it here my wife loves it and is using it for everything which is why I titled this review as Your Everything Set. I am definitely telling everyone I know about it and we will be advertising it while using it at the same time Thanks QVC.
Absolutely Love Temp-tations!
These are the easiest to use and clean of any of my bakeware. I've done mac & cheese and potatoes au gratin in them and clean up is simply soak with hot soapy water for a few minutes and hit it with a sponge. Unlike my other baking vessels by companies whose names start with "C" and "P" there is no burning or hard scrubbing required. I don't even think of putting these in the dishwasher because they're so easy to clean. Looking to add more to my collection, including the place settings! Would definitely recommend to anyone. Buy a piece or two and try it, you won't be disappointed!
Nice variety of sizes
I finally broke down and bought this set because it was available in Harvest. I wanted the set because of the 8x8 and the 11x7 pans. I was surprised to find the pie dish was a different size than the one in the sweet and savory bake set I had gotten earlier, the one with the rolling pin. I don't use the plastic lids. The measuring spoons are cute and the recipe cards are different from the bake set also. It's nice to have ones that are for the new set. I retired all of my pyrex and corning ware because of this purchase. I don't have a problem with the quality. I collect and use dinnerware from the 40s to the 60s and it is also hand painted and nothing is perfect. I like it that way.
Preview Your Review
I purchased this set in Cranberry and it's just stunning. The color works for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It a rich muted Holiday red I would say, instead of that bright too much red. I have cooked in two pieces so far and used the bowls for mixing eggs and it's all so beautiful and functional. Clean up is a breeze, it's true that nothing sticks to it. I couldn't be any more pleased and I am now addicted to Temp-tations!!
Adorable and practible
This set was to replace all the mix matched oven cookwear I have collected over the years. I was sceptacle about the non stick properties this set would have but have since used it several times and really love this set. I also love the lids so I can prepare a dish and transport it to the dinner party easily without having to place plastic wrap or ugly tin foil on top. Have since added to my collection with mixing bowls and counter top accessories.
