Temp-tations Old World 16-piece Oven-to-Table Set
2 cd purchase on this set as gift
I got my daughter this same set last year and my daughter in law wanted a set this year. The old world green is what my daughter has and it is beautiful. My daughter in law is getting the blue which is also great. I own the bigger set of the Red. Love mine. They always get compliments at Christmas time. My Mom is a big Temptations lover and owns many pieces and lots of different colors. Love the new purple that just came out...may have to start collecting it too!
First, the design must be stamped on as some of the designs are off-centered on certain pieces.
Second, one of the casserole dishes developed a surface crack spanning the entire bottom of the casserole. You could feel it if you rubbed your finger across, but it didn't go all the way through to the other side. I have never gone from freezer to oven or oven to sink, so this was not my doing. I was afraid that I would wind up having the thing split open while in the oven, spilling its contents.
I returned the entire set. I was disappointed in the workmanship and durability. Really poor quality control with this item.
Especially nice for the Hoiidays......... =^..^=
As time goes by I find a lot of uses for this product......I do not find that it just releases baked goods as promised....... Was great for Turkey Day....... Was able to carry foods and have them look nice on the table upon arriving at destination........
beautiful and non stick
I have owned my set of temptations for 6 years. Anything i bake in them comes out fantastic! Nothing stick, food cooks evenly and looks beautiful on the table. BUT just like the negative reviews ALL of my dishware is cracked. I own every set of temptations and they are all cracked. I handwash and some peices i dont bake in and they are still cracked. "spider cracks" But it is only a cosmetic flaw that you will see when your not using them. It doesnt affect the cooking and you cant see the cracks when food is in it. I dont mind the cracks- Maybe its because after 6 years they are still beautiful and cook just as well as the first day i used them. Buying for a friend
Simply the best value
I am slowly building my Temp-tations collection.one special buy at a time. This product is simply the absolute best buy on TV. I have been able to do as Tara mentions, get rid of the old metal and or plastic pieces and use these as my go to.
Keep them coming, please.
Best items ever
I surprised my wife with this set. She was not expecting them.
She uses them everyday and we are so happy that she enjoys showing them off.
Breaks in oven
My smaller square baker has cracked in the oven on the second use. Now after reading all the issues others have had with breakage I don't think I will use them for that again. They are so pretty and make the table look lovely so I'll just use them for desserts and presentation. It's a shame because I have disposed of my old bakers and will now have to buy new ones. This is a problem QVC needs to address with the Temptations people.
A beautiful set! However.......
this is the best set I have ever seen with temptations as far as sizes and pieces, I have several sets of temptations and I think this one is the best; But one of the pieces arrived with an internal crack that must have happened in production because it was glazed over. I did not want to go through the hassle to return and pay for shipping and wasn't sure how to just return one piece so i decided to take a chance and use it. I baked pork chops in a 325 degree oven. unfortunately that one crack expanded and then more internal cracks developed. I am very disappointed because this was after one use. I also bought another set to give as a gift and I am just hoping and praying that the other set is not damaged and does not crack on my gift recipient.
This set is absolutely beautiful. I bought the black. It was everything I was hoping to have. Sturdy, beautiful designs, and the lids work great. I plan to buy to buy the bowl set next.
the reason i wouldn't recommend is because the small brownie pan broke only after having it a year & 2 months. i am not happy & very disappointed because i love this stuff. it cooks & bakes great & clean up is so easy. it is also very pretty. i cannot use the pan because it leaks through the 3 cracks in the bottom of the pan. the cracks are in an odd place
Stick with your boring white bakeware!
At least they won't crack like the 9x13, lid it, 11x7 and both loaf pans we purchased last year have. So disappointed. Yes, Temptations will replace them but, at a shipping cost of $9.95 per piece, that's just shy of $50. Hardly worth it when the entire set was just under $60 and there's no guarantee the same thing won't happen to the replacements. Needless to say, we won't be sending Christmas cards to the elves at the Temptations factory this year.
I purchased two sets of the crème colored dishes a few years ago to use for Thanksgiving. One of the 4 Quart baking dishes cracked along the bottom right off the bat and unfortunately for me, I purchased them earlier in the year so by the time this occurred, the warranty expired. Holding hope that it was just a fluke, I brought them out again for the Thanksgiving holiday and much to my dismay, the other 4 quart in addition to both 2.5 quart baking dishes cracked (essentially in the same spots) after taking them out of the oven and placing them on the counter. According to the advertisement (as Today's Special Value), I would expect a long life however I am utterly disappointed in the quality of this product.
