Temp-tations Old World 1.5 qt. Baker w/ Printed Gift Box
Love all Temp-tations! Even the box deserves 5 stars!
There are a few small chips on this baker, was packaged securely so this was sent out like this. I am keeping because I purchased this as a "lunchtime special" price, I did notice however this went back to regular price.
I am a huge Temp-tations fan, but the quality lately is not at the level I've come to appreciate and expect. I have always posted positive reviews, but was so disappointed, that i felt i needed to post.
I ordered this in the black, and strangely enough, it has a greenish tint to it. It really doesnt match my other pieces. The quality of the painting was subpar to be honest. And sadly, the lovely decorative box was busted on one side. It was packaged well and very securely which leads me to believe the box was damaged when shipped. I would return it, but at this price point its not even worth spending the return postage.
I should have ordered the next size up in this baker as it is a little smaller than I thought - anyway, it is perfect for smaller servings.
Color is a little off from my other pieces YET don't want to return it as it is $6.95 to return it and the item was only $19.00!!!
So I think I'll gift it! Nice presentation with the box too!!!
I bought this for the great value as a gift. A perfect present for a cook. I love that it's wrapped in the box. Looks like you spent a fortune, but really didn't!
I love this baker, perfect for reheating. When you pick up the lid it is just so pretty in the confetti. I use it just about every day. Love the design too. I just want to keep adding on to my set. Keep them coming Tara!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought two in the confetti color and they are beautiful. I haven't used either of them for their intended purpose, that is to bake in, but I am very impressed with the look of them. I can only assume that they will also function as promised.
This Temp-tation Baker is BEAUTIFUL!
I couldn't believe how gorgeous this 1.5 qt. Baker is...LOVE the color! I actually left this on my counter so along with myself my family and friends could admire it too..my husband thought it was pretty and he never compliments my dishware..
The cost was low and even though I haven't baked with it yet I'm sure it'll do its job!
Concerns About the Quality
I just wrote a VERY similar review to this one concerning the Temp-Tations fluted tube pan I ordered (K36058). As I mentioned in the other review, I am a huge fan of Temp-Tations and have more pieces than I can count. However, in the last 6-8 months, the quality of all the pieces has really dropped off (and I hate to say that because I have absolutely loved cooking with these dishes). I ordered two of these 1.5 qt. bakers ... in the color brown ... and they arrived looking vastly different from all my other brown Temp-Tations. They actually looked MUCH more green than they did brown and didn't match my other pieces of brown at all. Also, the weight of the dishes is becoming lighter and lighter (thereby giving them a "cheaper" feel). I will say that the coordinating gift box that comes with these bakers is beautiful ... and perfect for gift-giving. But in general, I have real concerns about the colors (and overall quality) of Temp-Tations lately.
Great Christmas Presents!
Another wonderful Christmas dish from Temptations! Yes, I have already started my Christmas shopping for 2013!! Got two as gifts, and one for me ( of course). The red on the flowers was more of a tomato red than a Christmas red, but that's not enough of an issue to get them sent back. Love the matching storage box. Temptations really knows how to pack their product!
As always from Temp-tations- Beautiful!
I would purchase more but they are a little pricey. Luckily I got this on clearance.
My baker arrived with a few chips. I really liked the yellow color but returned it due to the damged baker.
