Belleek "Everyday" Basketweave 2 qt. Baker w/ Lid
Warped and Defective Baker
I've been a QVC customer since it began and a Belleek collector since the first St Patrick's Day program. I've given up on both due to a complete lack of quality control. I received my Belleek baker and was thankful that this time I did not send it ahead as a wedding gift. The top and bottom were each shrink wrapped to a piece of cardboard, and they were in a plain cardboard box. But the real issue was the Belleek Baker. As soon as I took it out of the box, I could see that the top was warped! The sides bowed out and were not straight. The inside was clearly warped, with crooked lines, and that part had to fit inside the bottom part of the baker. I could clearly see that the top would not fit and it didn't. One side of the top jutted out completely!. It was unusable. If Belleek or QVC would have taken a second to fit the top to the bottom, or just look at it, this piece would never have been sent off. Seeing the other negative reviews, I realize that this was done to others. I returned it. I've had one other defective item from QVC recently. . There won't be another. I won't be back.
Baker w/ Lid
I have collected Belleek for many years, but I am delighted with this new Belleek that you can bake in and use every day. This was my treat for St Patrick's day and it is beautiful and very handy for serving stews or baking a great Italian dish. It also looks so pretty on the table as a centerpiece. I would love another one.
Fits Into Any Tablescape
Love the baker! I selected the plain. It really does go from refrigerator, to oven to table. It makes a great presentation. The only drawback that I have found is the clean up. If you serve something with sauce or something sticks to the outside it is hard to get it out of the basket weave pattern. Especially if the product has been baked. Besides that I will use it many times – won’t go out of style and fits into any table setting.
Very pretty, nice size and quite functional. It loses a star because the lid does not fit great and looks slightly oversized compared to the casserole.
After collecting Belleek for several years, I ordered seven lidded bakers for family members. The lids don't fit the dish-you can see light between the two pieces. I.have returned all seven.
I was so looking forward to receiving this baker, but I was really disappointed when I received a defective product. The bottom of my baker was warped. One side was bowed out which caused the lid to not fit properly. The baker was quite beautiful, but the defect made it non-functional. I've returned for a credit.
love the dish but it is way to small even knowing the dimensions much smaller than what you would think. Had to send back was not feasible. It is good value if you make very small dishes for one to two people.
Beautiful and Versatile Baker!
I have some old oven to table bakers which were popular even in my mother's day, but they weren't at all compatible with my nice china and more formal dinners when I pull out the silver and crystal and put flowers on the table. This beautiful baker will do the job very nicely as well as go well with my informal, everyday setting. I also love the size for just my husband and me or up to a dinner for four. Now I will have to take a look at the other Belleek Everyday pieces! I have many other Belleek pieces which I have collected for many years.
Beautiful & useable,,,,,,,
This beautiful baker is not only stunning to view , but heaven sent to cook in . I hope to see many more items in this line of beautiful Irish cook ware, well done !!
What a beautiful piece...and practical! I've used the baker several times and love the even cooking and easy cleanup! What's even more special is the fact that you can appreciate and see the piece is truly handmade! Definitely a special piece!! Thank you for bringing it to QVC!!
Another Belleek Beauty!
I purchased this as a TSV, and, as usual, I am very happy with my decision! This may be listed as "Everyday", but don't let that fool you. This baker is elegant and beautiful. Love the basketweave pattern. Love the touch of shamrocks. Love the knob design. Love the squared-off corners. Love the beautiful shade of white.
Wonderful in every way. Ordered this on St. Patrick's Day and
have come back for another.
