K2706 - Temp-tations Old World 6-piece Round Oven-to- Table Set
Lids Do Not Fit, etc. etc.
I received these in the yellow. The overall paint job was nice except for one scratch through the glaze on the smaller baker. Also, on the smaller baker, the rim of the baker was not entirely round; it had a "straight edge" on one portion where it looked like someone tried to "fix" a break in the rim. As for both bakers, the lids did not fit properly, especially on the smaller one. There was so much room between the edge of the lid and the edge of the baker and if you picked the baker up and tilted it slightly, the lid would move from side to side. Called Q CS and these went back for a full refund today. I can understand a break in shipping, but when items are shipped with obvious defects, then they go right back to QVC.
I was so looking forward to receiving this set, however, upon opening the box I noticed that the green paint was completely different from that of ALL of my other temptations pieces that I own. My pieces are a vibrant green, and these are DULL finish with more of an "army " green color. Not in a million years would these match my other pieces. The color green that is shown online is the SAME green as what I'm used to, therefore the reason I ordered them! This picture absolutely does NOT accurately represent the color that they come in.
The other problem with these is that there are several mistakes within the pattern, and unfinished chips on the inside of the lids. No wonder these are on CLEARANCE!
I received the merchandise in perfect condition. The cream paint is a little lighter than my other Temp-tation pieces but it is still beautiful. I love the quality, Old World pattern and affordable price of Temp-tations Bakeware. Thank you Tara!
I still love it!
Just received my set in yellow. I agree the knobs are to round for gripping. I love them anyway. I will have to be careful when using them.
I just received my set and couldn't wait to use it! I am anxious to build my set!
I am making mac and cheese in the smaller casserole as I write this. It is the perfect size for a family of one. The larger casserole will be used, as well. Tara rocks! I love the little rattan insert in the ensemble rather than the usual glass/ceramic insert. Really appreciate the covers too.
Even my husband noticed these baking/serving dishes. I love the lids.
The other temp tations items I have didn't have the lids and I like these more.
The hosts on QVC were right. You could bring one of these to a pot-luck and gift it to the hosts and they would never guess you paid $11 for the item.
I am really enjoying cooking in these!! I had bought the go-cups before and liked the pattern. But cooking is a different story. i will definitely have to have more of these!! It doesn't hurt that they are beautiful as well as efficient and complete.
Love, love, love
Have several pieces of Temp-tations in Old World green. I love and appreciate the easy clean-up. I was only going to use the pieces for company, but decided that my husband and I should also enjoy them, so I use them on a daily basis. Thanks for such a convenient, lovely product.
I don't like giving bad reviews
I like the sizes and the deepness of the bowls. My lids are loose and the bowls and lids seem thinner to me than other temptation dishes I have. I had 2 temptation lids break while baking in the past and these leave me sceptical. So for that reason, I gave 3 star
Very Nice Set!
I received this today in old world yellow hoping for the best and I am not disappointed! The lids fit fine and the painting is good, the wire baskets are fine, the wicker trivets made the dishes a bit wobbly but I turned them over and problem solved! This set looks very pretty next to the 6 piece oval oven to table set K3449. Glad I got this set at clearance price!
Disappointed with this set
I loved the idea of having this set because of the covers, but I have to agree with the other reviews that it the quality is not up to par for Temp-Tations. The top knobs are too small so taking it off with mitts on is hard to do. Cracks/crazing in one of my pieces inside and out, and I agree about the trivets that come with this set...rattan...but I knew that those would be included with this set. Since then Tara has upgraded her sets with the glass trivets, a big improvement.
