Temp-tations Old World 13-pc. Lid-it Oven-to-Table Set
have had this set for a couple of years and really loved it even though the lid for the small oval is too big. Tonight using the small oval trivet/cover in the oven and heard a pop only to open the oven and find the dish broken in half! Dinner ruined! No reason I can see for this to have happened. I don't use this piece or any of them often only because it is just me so I maybe use them once a month or so. Very disappointed.
Good Value for the Price
For the most part I am satisfied with this purchase and the value/price ratio. I did find that the painting was not as good in the detail work (couple of flowers and their contrasting dot centers were way off center and there were some smudged spots on border pattern on some pieces....the larger casserole had a small blue (?) dribble of paint in bottom on my green set and the overall strength of color was not as good (more muted green) as on earlier sets I purchased..., BUT, these few flaws were not bad enough to make me return.......We are talking about a few small flaws here and there in many pieces of hand painted stoneware. Most are minor and will not be noticed in the day to day use of the pieces......but PAINTERS COULD HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB. Quality control could be tightened up a bit.
I like the shapes and sizes of this set. The fact that it contained various lid-it covers which could also be used for plates/platters and plastic storage covers makes the set very versatile. Even with complaints mentioned, this was very good value...not sorry I purchased. Hope others problems with lid-its cracking/breaking will not be an issue for me. Have not used them to cook on yet. Will see how they hold up. That will be more of an issue for me than the paint job.
first temptations purchase
works & looks great. Ordered in yellow, now not seeing much yellow. Get 1 hot/cold tote, but I take more than 1 hot/cold item. Can other totes be purchased? Is the yellow not being manufactured anymore? Cleans nicely. Would recommend for anyone.
...bring this set to us, in Floral Lace. Love Temp-tations but only collect FL. I am sure others are waiting for the same thing.
bought as a gift
Bought this set for my nice after she saw my set. She was so thrilled with them
Poor Quality Product
When received, one plastic lid was broken. Paint color uneven & sloppily applied. Lid-its do not fit tightly, allowing food to pop against the top and run out the sides into the microwave. One of the racks is very rough to the touch. Not what I expected for the price. Will be disposing of the set and will not be purchasing Temptations again.
The covers crack
I have used Temp-tations and the Covers had cracked on me twice, once on the 9x13 making eggplant parm and using the oval as a cookie sheet. Both were in the oven at 350. No more Temp-tations for me.
Best food storage and all...
I love all my temptations. I use them for cooking, serving and storing foods. My family and friends love it too. Be aware, if you bring it to a party keep an eye to it. Or you may never get it back.
Very nice purchase
I bought this set & love to bake in them. They are so versatile. I would like to see a larger size bowl set just like these.
She Loved It!
I purchased this set in cranberry for my mom for Christmas 2013. She loved the first set so I wanted to add to it. She raves about how well they cook and clean up. Beautiful to look at.
Perfect Design and Usability
This was first Temptations purchase and I am so glad I made the right choice in this purchase. I had trouble in color choosing and got black, its nice and matches well with other colors that you may have in kitchen. I have used them for anything I cook in the oven and the Lid-It's...the best part!! They double as heating other things in the oven...plus the plastic covers and the wire baskets.....hello. Amazing set and I LOVE the oval design BEST!!! This is best gift option if you need to get a gift for a new couple getting married, a house warming gift for your family members, and to treat yourself to a set for your family, this is great for small space storage issue too because they are oval and can nest inside each other.
Love this set and use it almost daily. Great buy. I chose brown as the color and it is beautiful. Have many pieces of temptations.
