Temp-tations Old World 13-pc. Lid-it Oven-to-Table Set
Purchased the oval set in Jan 2012. I have other pieces and have always liked the easy clean up. Placed an oval baking lid in the oven for the first time with a pre-made frozen, personal pan pizza on it. (I don't cook very often and this isn't even cooking!) Both the "handles" snapped off during the cooking process. That was disappointing. A call to QVC provided a number to temp-tations. They are willing to replace the top for free, but of course the S&H is 9.99 and the part will not be available until July. Afraid to put any of the other pieces in the oven now for fear that they may break and ruin the meal, as well as make a mess.
I love this set. However, when I used the large lid-it to heat up some fish in the oven at 375 degrees, it cracked into several pieces! Today I discovered some cracks on the bottom of the smallest oval piece. I've been using these in the microwave primarily, sometimes putting them in the frig, and in the dishwasher. I haven't put them in the freezer. I have used them in the oven which seems to be where the problem is. I don't know if the set I got just wasn't made properly or not. Its a big disappointment as I use this set daily.
Color is off
I received this set yesterday and I am so dissappointed. The paint job is not good. I purcahsed a red set and the red is not red red. it looks more like brick with some orange in it. I have other red pieces and while the color red is still not that great, it's much better than it is on this set. I recently counted my temptations pieces and I have over 42 pieces excluding the dinnerware. I actually had this set in blue which is gorgeous by the way, but recently I broke the middle sized baker and replaced the set with red and gave the blue to a friend. Bad decision. The red is not very good quality. In fact it's very poor quality. There needs to be more quality control with these products Tara. Color is inconsistent and you can see the brush strokes. Now mind you I have 42 other pieces and I have never complained about the paint job even though there have been many instances of imperfections. That should be enough to let you know how bad the paint job is on the red. i'm trading the red for the blue I gave my friend or I'll be sending the red back. Not good quality at all.
Like the size of this set
I received my set yesterday and really like the size of each of the pieces. The only thing that was a disappointment was the messy design on some of the pieces. I have a set of the polka dot and really like how nice it looks, just wish this set looked as nice.
Absolutely beautiful and perfect sizes. Will purchase more of this set.
Still waiting for replacement piece
I ordered this as a gift for Christmas to give to a family member. The large oval was cracked I called and was told to call Temp-tations directly . Spoke with Temp-tations in Jan and I am still waiting and so is my family member for this piece. I have called them directly about 6 times and lastly was told about a month ago they would not have this in stock til June to replace that one piece. However here it is for sale on QVC.
I love all my Temp-tations however much can be said about their customer service. Will not buy another piece till this is resolved. I have many pieces of the green old world and simply love it.
I love the cranberry old world pattern.I have purchased about nine different sets of the cranberry pattern and I just love them.
Lime is divine!!
I love all the summer colors, especially teal & lime!! I bought this set in lime and every piece is perfect. Thanks Tara and Qvc!
best surprise gift ever
i just got this set today as a gift from my husband and i love it the hot pink...great for baking corn bread and easter cake
Dish cracks after 4mos use
I ordered this set back in Nov 2012 and have been using them weekly. I have noticed there is a gray crack line across the bottoms and the bottom of the lids. I only put them in 350 degree oven and wash by hand or dish washer as it says you can. I called customer service and they are replacing the cracked dishes and were very happy to do it, which was refreshing. I'm now concerned about the ton of other dishes I have from them as well. I hope Tara checks out what is going on with quality control soon.
I received my set before Christmas and used it for Christmas dinner. Loved it. Ordered a second set to give as a wedding gift and hope they will love it as much as I do.
This set is awesome. I use one piece or another of it everyday. The painting is great I double checked because I had to return the first set due to poor painting. I use it from freezer to oven all the time and have had no problems.
