Temp-tations Old World Square Baker Gift Set w/ 4 Mugs
Great product, great price, great buy. I ordered the cranberry and it was in perfect condition. It is worth taking a chance on "as is" products. Thanks QVC!!!
I ordered 2 of the Square Bakers with Mugs. I was sorry to see that the lids do not fit on the bakers squarely. No matter which way we put them, there is a 'rocking gap'. between the bottom and top. Not enough to return them, but they are certainly not perfect. I was going to use them as gifts. However, I cannot. If they had been made properly, they would have been great....these....not so great.
Love this set....
What a great set. The mugs are a nice size (not oversized) and are easy to hold. As for the other reviewer who said they stained-----any stoneware that is light will stain if liquids are left in them for a long time. Just use a scrubbie or some bleach and the mugs are sanitary again. The ceramic box is worth the money alone. Its uses are endless. Glad I got an extra for a gift......thanks temptations....
I had this on my wish list for a long time, so when it came up again I jumped on it. I ordered 4 sets, one for myself and the remainder Christmas gifts. I love it, larger than expected and very good quality. I am so happy I ordered, my gift recipients will be happy too! Thanks QVC!
Just Received This Item
I just received three of these "as is" mug / baker sets. I am very pleased. Well packed. The details are well painted, crisp and bright. Would certainly have bought these items in person. Also great price for a "dual" purchase. I read the earlier review concerning the stained mugs. I haven't used these yet, so I can't comment on that aspect. Even if that does happen later, I would consider the price paid well worth the "gift box" baker alone.
Perfect Housewarming Gift!
Gave out two sets to "just marrieds" who love them because greasing and flouring pans "are just not our style". Problem solved. I included a recipe for banana bread to make it a gift from the heart.
Bring this back with BIGGER mugs ~~Please~~
I've ordered 4 sets as gifts and everyone loved them...I don't know anyone who doesn't drink coffee but the mugs are so small .... I have the square baker on my counter and hide all my vitamins and medications in it , but it would be great as a cookie jar or for dog treats ... it's just cute.....Please bring this back and ~~ Super Size it ~~ Such a great idea .
The quality was good on all 4 sets ~~ No cracks No chips No errors ~~
I purchased about a year ago but just recently began to use. The inside of the first cup I used began to show staining/discoloration after one or two uses. It looked dirty so I pitched that cup . I used a second cup and the same thing occurred, pitched that cup also. The same staining with the last two cups is occurring. I saw no one else noted this problem , so I quess I just got a bad set of mugs. I liked the smaller size with these mugs . I woiuld reorder a set if I could be sure they would not discolor.
Why not black?
I love the Old World black. I have many pieces. I have been wanting these mugs forever, but can never find in OLD WORLD BLACK.

Mug handles small
I was very disappointment when I bought them last holiday season. I bought them primarily for the mugs and thought I might gift the baker. The mugs are small and the handles even smaller. Uncomfortable for me to hold these mugs and it would be even harder for most men. My mugs indicate 11 oz on the bottom, which is smaller than I wanted and the demo given didn't indicate the size. Old World green clay has also gotten more yellow based so some pieces don't match as well with my older pieces. I generally love Temptations products but not this one.
GIFT GIVING AND MORE
TO RECEIVE THIS 2 PARTER GIFT IS WONDERFUL. FIRST YOU GET THE MUGS AND NEXT THE CERAMIC BOX AS A KEEP SAKE. I MADE A CAKE IN MY BOX AND GAVE IT AWAY AT A PARTY . THIS WAY A CAKE AND THE CAKE BOX WAS 2 GIFTS. THIS GOT GREAT REVIEWS AND TARA M. NAME WAS PASSED ON AND NOW TARA WILL HAVE AT LEAST 20 MORE PEOPLE FROM ME WHO ARE NOW DIRE HARD TEMPTATIONS FANS. BECAUSE TEMPTATIONS IS AFFORDABLE, BEAUTIFUL, AND SO WORTH IT!! OH BY THE WAY I KEPT THE MUGS FOR MYSELF. NO WAY THAT I WAS GIVING ALL MY TEMPTATIONS AWAY. THANK YOU BEAUTIFUL TARA M. FOR THIS PRODUCT. AND THANK YOU DAVID VENABLE FOR INTRODUCING US TO TARA. LOVE YOU BOTH
I love my Temptations. I have purchased a few pieces. This purchase was the set of coffee cups in the baker w/lid.
The problem that I have is that I absolutely love the yellow Old World style, but it is almost impossible to match other pieces to it. I am not a big fan of the other colors. Apparently, I had not heard of Temptations early enough to purchase other matching pieces. I do not like the idea of a bunch of mis-matched items in my kitchen, so it is highly unlikely I will purchase many more pieces unless the yellow Old World style comes back.
I will, however, use the pieces I have and enjoy the sunny feeling the yellow brings to my kitchen.
Because Temptations is so hard t match, I would not recommend giving it as a gift to another person who does not already have a collection of Temptations.
