Temp-tations Old World 9-Piece Baking Set
I had ordered this set in red for my neice. This is going to be for her first apartment. Myself & her mom has Temp-tations. I wanted to make sure she has a good bakeware set to use.
What Happened To QC?
Ok this set I have been wanting to purchase for a while. I have the blue old world but wanted to start collecting the green. I thought it was so beautiful. Well it came but with an awful awful paint job. I don't understand why the pieces are not inspected before they get shipped out. They are coming from China,I mean the shipping already cost a fortune, why not inspect this product before shipping it out..? Would save a lot of heartache and money if someone just looked at the poor painting on these pieces. I don't believe this. Someone needs to speak up. Will not buy again. Sorry...
What a big disappointment
Easter Day I decided to bake a cake in my temptations cookware. When the time came to take the cake out of the cookware part of the cake bottom stuck to the cookware ruining the appearance of the dessert. Tara always boasts and shows how nothing sticks to her bakeware. I guess it doesn't through the miracles of tv. It did not perform the way she promises. Have had problems with other pieces. My trust in her and her product as well as qvc who promotes it have gone out the door. Have also had a bad experience when calling the temptation hotline.
I read some of the reviews on this page...some of you said that there were small cracks and that the pieces broke...FYI...I love temptations and have a ton of it, but I had a 13x9 pan that had tiny cracks in it...I used it a lot...I never noticed, but happened to look at the pamphlet that comes with each set...she says to never soak the pieces in a in a tub of water...if you notice on the bottom of each piece there are places that are not coated...some of the water can leach into the unglazed portions then when it heats up in the oven it produces tiny cracks...after the pieces cool, fill them with water, then wash them...do not place them in a dishpan filled with water...I was doing just that, and lost a nice piece...my own fault...
For My Mom
I bought this set for my mom since she admired mine when she visited my home one day. Since she loves to bake and cook I thought it was the perfect gift for her. She loved the Cranberry color and how great they are to use and clean up.
Cracked at 350 and 450 degrees
I love Temp-tations and have given 4 16 piece sets as presents. I have the green old world and the 13x9 cracked when I used at 350 degrees. I Have added several other Old World designs. What is the realistic oven temp to be used?
I read other reviewers comments....is the product being improved upon to live up to the 500 degree oven temps?
I love the Temptations bakeware and have had some pieces for at least 7 years. I have never had a problem with any of the pieces I own. I have also given sets as gifts and these people love them, too. They look beautiful in use or displayed. Also, they clean so easily. Baked on food is easily washed away with maybe a little soaking.
I normally collect the Old World in Black but thought I'd add some red to my collection. The pieces are very pretty but I haven't used them yet. I needed specific sizes and this set fits the bill. Keep them coming!!! I did have one piece in the black collection crack in the oven the first time I used it. It was the Sectioned lit it in the large square baker. I used it as a lid and the handle has a large crack in it.
Not So Tempting
My Thanksgiviing dinner was ruined because when I removed the baking pan from the oven, the pan cracked in half and the sweet potatos and marshmallows went all over the oven. What a mess to clean up. This pan also showed signs of discolorations and small cracks. I did not use this pan enough for that to happen, and the oven was only set at 350 degrees. Please improve on this product. I used to brag about temptations, but not anymore.
This is perfect..we us it almost everyday and there also great for storing your leftovers.
Pretty but just that
I love the Temp-tations look, it's all over my kitchen. I no longer buy or use the bakeware for baking. It easily cracks when baking. I thought it was something I was doing wrong but I read the reviews and I see I'm not alone. I will continue to purchase other pieces other then the baking pieces. I've purchased other bakeware from QVC by others, no problem. So I hope that what ever is causing the problem with the temp-tations bakeware it will be solved.
Looks great and cleans easily. However, it's not really oven safe to 500 degrees. I set my oven to 485 and the pan cracked immediately when I put it in. So much for that!
