Temp-tations Old World 4-pc. Soup & Sandwich Set
I Absolutely Love These Dishes!!!
These are perfect for soup parties!!! I love them and will use them a lot.
I own these and bought this set as a gift
I owned two sets of the soup mugs and plates in Old World Blue and love them. Gust bought three sets for my daughter for Christmas gift as she is always borrowing mine. And as I write this still has two of my bowls as she makes onion soup in the oven in them.
I bought two sets of these in red. One was for me and another as a gift. It's perfect for a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. We also like pinto beans and cornbread and the Soup and Sandwich Set is perfect for this. I think it a good value for the cost. The only suggestion that I have is to add a snap on lid for microwave use.
I ordered this set in the Old World green color to match other pieces we have in our kitchen. I am so glad I purchased two sets as I see the green color is no longer available.I hope that these are not being phased out.
The sets are sturdy and generously sized. We make our own homemade soups and meals and freeze them using the food saver. This provides us with a quick soup and sandwich meal or other type of food we have frozen that fits well in this set.
I read the other reviews before purchasing this set and yes the pattern is imperfect. However, I feel it is supposed to be that way as part of the hand painted look. I have other pieces that I purchased a long time ago and they are the same way. It is subtle enough to contribute to the hand painted look promoted by Temp-tations.
I do not regret this purchase and I have not seen anything else like it on the market. At least not this generously sized and well made! The quality is the same as my first purchase when Temp-tations first aired on QVC.
Like them a lot : )
Ordered these when the color selection was slim. Default choice, the gray after reading a review stating the gray was closer to a light blue; not a mistake. The gray is gray but it leans toward a soft gray blue if you have those shades surrounding.
I bought one set for a Christmas gift to my son-in-law's parents, one set for my husband and me. We've tried our set and agree we like it.
We enjoy soups and stews in the winter so we will enjoy using this pretty set.
Besides the functionality it dresses up a basic meal. You know, presentation is a big part of the meal?
I have one suggestion for MsT....one addition to this versatile set? Please include a plastic or SILICONE snap on lid for storage, but DO NOT INCREASE THE PRICE.
I can recommend this set and would buy more of them as gifts. I agree with other reviewers, I would sure like to see them in Floral Lace.
Dollar Store quality
These are really a nice size, which I am pleased about.
However, the painting job is of such poor quality. I have a lot of Temptations, and these are the worst painted item that I have gotten. It is sad to have a good product, very popular, but we can not get a good quality paint job.
These are really sloppy looking, smeared from one end to the other.
Tara, please ring the company back to US, and over see the quality of them.
Not very carefully painted.
Yes, these are hand painted but they were not done carefully. Hand painted is supposed to be a GOOD thing. Very little care was put into painting these. Not sure if I am returning them or not. I have other Temptations pieces that do not have sloppy painting like these do. The size of the bowls and the plates is good though. Just wish that they had been painted more carefully.
Soup and Sandwich Hound
I ordered this before I found out about the new colors. I only had 4 to choose from and the gray is very pretty-almost like a light blue. This is why I only gave it 4 stars. Would love it in cobalt blue floral lace. I can see that I will use the soup and sandwich set a lot. The soup bowl is large for a nice serving and either crackers or a sandwich on the side. I can see many uses for it-as a snack tray with dips, etc. Really love this set. I have several pieces of Temptions and have not had any problems with any of it. Of course, since it is hand painted, I do not expect perfection like off of a machine.
Nice but not a bright red as advertised
The first OW dishes and bakeware I bought in red were the bright Christmas red they advertised. The 16 piece set I received yesterday had an inferior paint job. It was blotchy and pale. This set arrived today. The set is very nice but definitely not "bright red". It is more of a spice (pink/orange) color. It's okay but definitely not what I wanted to match my set of OW red.
Sturdy and so nice!
I got these in Old World grey. The grey is beautiful, seeing it on tv doesn't do it justice. I love it because it has brown accents so it looks nice with my Old World brown. The soup bowl fits a lot of soup, even though it looks more compact than my regular bowls…fits the same amount of soup. It's nice to have the bowl and plate together for when you're dipping grilled cheese in tomato soup!
Muli use set
I bought this set as a gift. Mine is 2 years old and used frequently for more than just soup and sandwich. It's very pretty, washes easily and keeps soup hot. Definintely recommend it.
As described. Beautiful and just the right size for soup and a sandwich.
