Temp-tations Old World 4-pc. Soup & Sandwich Set
I bought a set for my son sometime ago and he really loves them I finally decided to order a set for myself in red. The reason for four stars is that the color is not a true red, a little washed out and a pinkish tone. Other than this issue they will get a lot of use in my kitchen for a variety of soups, stews and chili, hot cereal etc.
Can't live without!
I love this soup and sandwich set. But I use it for so much more. PLEASE bring this back. I wanted to order a couple more sets . And I'm panicking that it's clearanced. More floral lace please.
High quality item
After having lunch with a friend who served soup and sandwich on these, I had to have a set. I bought them within days. My Daughter saw my set and plans to purchase a set also.
Have two sets In Old World Green! Asked
My daughter for another set for Christmas and was so disappointed when she told me they were sold out! Please get them back in green. I love Temp-Tations! Will keep checking back. Thanks
I gave this to my husband for Christmas, as he loves soup with a sandwich/crackers/chips, salad, etc. The beautiful red matches my Temp-tations dinnerware perfectly, and the large soup bowl stays in place as he moves it to his office, porch, family room, etc. The price is very reasonable for four quality, versatile pieces which have many other uses. I'm ordering another set to serve family and friends when they visit. Love my Temp-tations!!
I bought these for a gift for my parents who make their own soup. Thought it would be nice to sit at their little tv tables and have soup and a sandwich etc. I really liked them. They never did say if they liked them or not. But if I would have bought them for my self I would have used them all the time. Love that they can go in the oven or the microwave etc.
Hole on Underside of Handle Holds Water Inside
Great concept, I've had other sets in "boring whiteware" that were very functional with a regular loop handle. This handle is hollow, and unless you want to bother taping the hole underneath with waterproof tape to wash them, water will get inside the handle. I placed them in the dishwasher As Instructed, but even if you hand wash them, it's unavoidable to get filled with water. It makes me crazy to feel water dripping out in my hand, and it came out in my cabinet which is how I first noticed it. Couldn't figure out why there were drops of water in my china cabinet! When you shake the piece, you can hear that there is quite a bit of water in the handle. Aggravating! Really poor design. I realize that for firing in a kiln, a hollow handle has to have a hole, but maybe it shouldn't have been a hollow handle then! Should have been a solid loop or "ears" on the piece itself. Once again, aggravating! And I am a Temp-tations fan, I have many sets of the product in many different designs and colors. I can't believe this issue hasn't been addressed before, I can't be the only one who has noticed this.
I have a lot of temptations from when they first started on QVC but as the demand got grater the quality went down. I love the soup and sandwich plate set I have one from way back but this one I ordered for a Christmas gift and the paint job was so bad my 3 year old grandson can do better then this. So I sent it back for full refund I have ordered other temptations in the past few years and the paint jobs were bad again I will not order any more temptions again. QVC always had good qualty things but this company is not.
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.
