Temp-tations Old World Or Polka Dot 16-pc. Outdoor Dinnerware Set
The description says top shelf dishwasher safe. Not!!!!! Everyone of mine cracked. Waste of money.
not the best purchase made
the plates and bowls are fine but the glasses are a waste of money. They crack at the bottom and if the bottom leaks the glasses are no good. It's been awhile since they were purchased so cannot return them. I now no longer have a complete dinner ware set.
Great for the price !
The dinner set is cute and nice for the price. The bowls are bigger than your normal bowls that come with a dinnerware set, my husband looks for those bowls to use when needing a bowl.
I enjoyed this product. I have been looking for dishes like these and a friend told me about they and they are just what I wanted.. they would make great gifts,
Cute But Not Great Quality
Even for melamine, these dishes are thinner, cheaper feeling than most melamine dishes I have owned. In fact, there are plastic disposable plates in the grocery store that are almost on par with these dishes. Very disappointed. The pattern and color are so cute, but I am almost embarrassed to use these in company - - - even outdoors.
Too Pricey For The Quality!!!!
I purchased 1 set each of Old World and Polka Dot...they look nice but, the quality of melamine used is unacceptable...the plates are too flat, the bowls are too big...the glasses are too small and they craze, crack and leak. Would be much happier if they were really dishwasher and microwave safe. Would also like it if the pieces could be purchased separately. Would really be happy if the glasses that leak could be replaced...I now have plates and bowls and no glasses to match...I like matchy- matchy.
Can put these in the dishwasher
Just turn off the heated dry. That's what is bad for them. I always put mine in the dishwasher, and put the plates where the plates are supposed to go. I have never used heated dry because it's a waste of electricity, and I've never had a problem putting "top rack only" items anywhere in the dishwasher. If you want to spend the time handwashing, fine, but I'm too lazy. And, by the way, I love these dishes. I even donated my regular Temptations dinnerware and replaced it with these. (I'm getting older and the regular Temptations weighed a ton.) I use the bowls all the time for just about anything.
I absolutely love these plates. I have severe nerve damage in both hands and arms. I bought the blue old world and the confetti, these plates have saved a lot of broken plates, and alot of tears, we are a family of 5 and cleanup is a snap. My family loves the bowls for ice cream. I would love for Tara to offer the plates, bowls, cups as a seperate set by themselves for those of us who like to entertain. Keep up the great job Temptations.
I loved my Temptation bakeware but these fell short. I returned 1 set because the plates do not fit in the top rack of my dishwasher. I ordered 2 sets to start but I do not want to wash dishes. I can do 4 not 8. They also scratch very quickly.
I bought the blue polka dot set last summer and just like another reviewer said, I thought we would just use them in summer but we've been using them since last summer and just bought a set of brown polka dot to go with the blue. My favorite pieces are the bowls and cups. No problem with washing them in the sink but then it is just my daughter and I. I've also noticed that I don't reach for paper plates as often because I reach for the big plate for things like making sandwiches. They're great.
Just What I Wanted and More
This set of melamine dishes is beautiful in the old world pattern, I originally wanted it in the green, but was too slow and it sold out. I ordered it in the cranberry and love it. I bought a second set so I now have eight of each piece. I really wanted the larger bowls for salads, and they will be great for serving bowls also. They stack well and don't take up a lot of extra space, which I don't have. Didn't particularly want or need the drinking glasses, but they are so lovely, just the right size. I'm completely happy with these dishes, they are exactly as described and demonstrated, no surprises, except maybe that they are even better in person. I don't have a dishwasher, I hand wash all my dishes anyway, so that would never be a deal breaker for me. Thank you for packing in cardboard inside the boxes instead of the dreaded Styrofoam , much preferable. I realize they may not be for everyone, but they are perfect for some of us:)
Dishwasher Top Rack Only!!!
I have 3 sets of this Old World Pattern with all of the bowls, glasses, and serving pieces. I also have the Seashell pattern set. I love them and get many compliments. That being said, the trade-off for stepping up from paper to these attractive dishes is that you must handwash them. Who has a top rack that can accommodate 101/2inch plates? If you don't want a sink full of dishes to wash in the summer, these are not for you. Three star rating because of the dishwasher issue.
