Temp-tations Old World Set of 2 9" Deep Dish Pie Plates
Be Aware That Ugly Grey Lines May Appear w/Reg Use
This pie dish was ruined by baking a pie according to the user guidelines and Temp-tations customer service (after I sent the pie dish to them for "examination") says the degree of crazing was "consistent with what can be seen in stoneware items exposed to heating and cooling.". Temp-tations describes "crazing" as "hair line cracks" but you should be aware that this is how they describe ugly grey lines which appear over and through the lovely pattern on these pie dishes EVEN IF YOU FOLLOW THE USER GUIDELINES. Because the pie dishes are now out of warranty Temp-tations required that I pay shipping for the "free replacement" thus adding $10 to the base cost of the pie dish. They did end up sending a new one after a lot of bother for me complaining and insisting that the reason I made the purchase was BECAUSE of the lovely pattern and, if it could not perform as a pie dish without ruining the lovely pattern then they were misrepresenting their product. Not a happy camper!!!
Great at first
I bought the pie dishes just before Christmas. They looked great. I decided to keep 1 and gift the other. I used mine exactly 4 times - baked two cakes, heated some left overs and heated some fish sticks. According to the product description, these dishes are safe at up to 500 degrees F. After 15 minutes at 475 the dish cracked in half. Imagine my surprise when I opened the oven to get my fish sticks. I called Temptations customer service, and it would actually cost me the price of 1 of these dishes for a replacement to be sent, since according to the agent I had to pay for shipping. That was just not acceptable. It was essentially asking me to purchase the item again. Needless to say, no matter how attractive they look, I will not be making any more temptations purchases.
Love, Love, Love
I had put off buying temptations but I finally decided to try the deep dish pie plates first. Since then, I have purchased the three piece serving bowls. I wish I hadn't waited as long as I did. I love them. I use them constantly. The clean up is as easy as they demonstrate. If you are contemplating buying temptations for the first time, don't. I think you will be happy that you decided on your purchase.
Not good for making pies! Very disappointed!!!!
I have tried on several occasions to make a pie in the pie dishes and find it next to impossible to get the pie out of the pan without it falling apart! What a disappointment when you have baked a pie for friends and you can't get it out of the the dish! I would not recommend these for any kind of pies , but make an OK serving dish! I would never suggest them for pies!!!!!! I would not recommend these for anyone unless they were going to use them for something else!
Love the size of these. Use for crustless quiches alot.
Please make a complete sets of tea/tablespoons, forks, butter knives and steak knife sets to go along with my beautiful kitchenware. I am a collector of old world confetti (love, love, love). The price for S& H is expensive to send to me in Alaska but well worth it in my opinion. Love these products.
These deep dish pie plates are lovely but hard to get a piece of pie without destroying it. I use the plates for other dinner food....like casseroles and vegetables.
this was the second set of old world pie dish plates that I ordered . The first set was fine ,but one of the pie plates in the second set had cracks in the bottom after just one use in the freezer. These cracks were through the entire plate bottom and there were numerous smaller cracks in the plate. I called the company for a replacement the representitive informed me that she would replace the faulty product ,but that I would have to pay $9.00 shipping I agreed ,but I should not have had to pay for shipping to replace a defective product. Have bought a lot of this collection and pleased with temptations overall 4stars.
Gave This as a Gift
We gave this as a gift -- one with a pie, and the other loaded with cookies. Our friend collects Temptations, so It was the perfect gift.
ADDING TO MY COLLECTION
these pie plates are perfect-and I love the fitted covers-(no more crinkled up tin foil) I collect cranbury old world,and these pie plates will be used a lot.Thats one of the things I love about Temptations-yes its lovely and looks great ,but it really is the best bakewear I have ever used.It still amazes me how easy it is to clean.No more soaking overnight and still having to scrub-like I did with my old bakewear.And collecting is fun. I do have a request -I would like to be able to purchase more individual items-some pieces I have my eye on are only available in large sets.If you have been thinking about trying Temptations-these pie plates are a good way to start and a good value.
Perfiect pie dish
I purchased these pie dishes and gave one to my daughter. We have both baked pies in them and love them. The confetti pattern is very pretty.
Not For Pie
Due to the fact that the sides are not slanted and it has a groove every couple of inches, makes it impossible to remove a slice without destroying it.. It makes a better casserole dish than a pie plate.
