Temp-tations Old World 16-piece Oven-to-Table Set
So Pretty but .....I don't trust it anymore
I gave this 2 stars because I was so happy to get this set and it is so beautiful. Soon after two pieces cracked while baking. I called customer service at Temptations and they sent me new ones. The lids never did fit on the new ones but I learned to live with it. Yesterday, after many months now, my favorite piece was in the oven (375 degrees) and I heard a loud pop! Sure enough, a big chunk cracked off the corner. I love the look of the cookware but it ruined what I was cooking because I couldn't be sure if there were pieces of ceramic in it. I would love to order more but I just can't if I don't trust it. What good is showing off your pretty cookware if you have no food to put in it? I can't keep throwing out meals. I don't even want a replacement for this last one. I either go a bad batch or this cookware is not meant to cook in!!
A Must Have for Every Kitchen!
I purchased this and was so impressed I bought one for my friend for a Christmas Present. My daughter needed some containers for her kitchen so of course I bought her these. I purchased the cranberry for myself. The blue for my friend and the grey for my daughter. All the colors just amazing. You won't be sorry if you purchase this.
9x13 Lid It Cracked in half
I loved the set when I received it and ordered two different sets to go with it. I have recommended it to my family members, and, now, the large lid it cracked right in the middle when I used it to bake biscuits at 350. I have used it in the oven several times at 350 and it had done fine, as did the other pieces. I always hand wash them, never in the dishwasher because I'm afraid of them getting chipped. I have never put them in the freezer, only the oven and refrigerator. I am so disappointed and now I'm worried that the other pieces will start to crack, also! I would still recommend them for now, but if the other pieces start to crack, then no, they won't be worth it.
Great multi-purpose but perfrect for sticky buns
I use this set for many items. My only complaint is that the largest size seems not to be as sturdy as the other Temptations pieces that I have. It is perfect, however, for sticky buns. The buns can be baked in the pan, then turned onto the lid-it tray for serving.
The glass trivit is not oven proof, or at least the decoration is not. I thought I would heat it to keep the hambergers warm while using the wire basket with the trivit as a bread basket. Well, when I went to take the trivit out of the oven the decoration was curled up about 1/4 of the way on the back of the trivit. I thought the decoration was painted on, not an applied decal.
We love ours!
We got this set over a year ago as a house warming gift from my parents who already had theirs. We love how handy they are. So easy to clean. We loved ours so much we just gave a friend the set for their wedding. Perfect for yourself and to give as gifts.
Pretty but not quality I thought would be there
I purchased the Temp-tations 16 piece set The first time I used it, when cleaning it, I noticed crazing throughout the piece. I don't know if this will continue getting worse through use. It makes the piece look as though it has been used for many years. I called Temp-tations and they are going to send me replacement pieces when they come off back order. The pieces are pretty and I like the serving trays. I got the confetti. I also have been waiting for the 9" pie plates that match this set. They are also on wait list. I could have done without the 4 small pieces. I had planned on getting rid of my plain coring baking dishes, but I will be keeping them now.
Cracked after a year
I loved this set. I took such good care of it. Today as I washed the biggest piece, I realized there were about 6 fractures/cracks. I could run my fingernail over them and feel them on both sides. I am so disappointed. I got this set as a Christmas gift in 2012 so its about a year and a half old. I really thought it would last longer. I won't be asking for a replacement and will go back to my Corelle Ware as it lasts forever. Really ruined my day!
Love this set
Had been at several friend's homes when they were using this set and was impressed with how versatile, attractive and practical. Have used already in just 1 week and very pleased I purchased them.
I have this set and have had it for maybe a couple of years and last night the lid cracked into 3 pieces when I pulled it out of the oven. I contacted QVC and they told me that Temptations was good about replacement. I called them and they made me look up the item number because when I told them what piece it was they acted as though they had no clue as to what item I was referring. I had to look up information for their Customer Service for their products - I mean Really!! To be expected it was out of warranty but free for basically a $10.00 shipping fee - I was so irritated at having to provide everything for them that I passed and may or may not order additional items. I have loved my temptations but will probably not order again after this experience - what if it was someone's Mom or Grandmother and didn't have access or know how to use a computer? This has left a very bad impression on me. Very frustrating experience!
I have ordered a ton of the Temptations products, both for myself and my family members. I have been happy with the items, but now they are starting to crack. My 9x13 pan is showing cracks on the inside bottom and outside bottom. I have used them in the oven and in the dishwasher, but they have never been in the freezer. Not sure what is causing this, but now I am afraid of what the rest of these pieces are going to do! The worst part is that the one year warranty is now expired! Very disappointed to say the least! Buyer beware here!
Not a fan
I agree with the previous reviewer, everything sticks in this bakeware. It is also extremely heavy. Would not recommend at all.
