Temp-tations Old World 1.5 qt. Baker w/ Printed Gift Box
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.
Gift receivers are lovin it !
Ordered these for 3 family members who have been so kind and thoughtful through a very difficult time. Thought this would be a beautiful and useful gift , to thank them for all they have done. They all called raving how much they loved it. I may have to order one for myself. A perfect thank you gift for those special people in your life at a perfect price too!
I use this a couple times a day to reheat things in the microwave - I have the Poinsettia and it's very pretty - I thought it was a great deal to get a baker this size with the matching lid, trivet and wire basket included - the gift box it came in is beautiful and sturdy enough to be kept and re-used in a variety of ways.
I use this piece almost daily. It's a great covered vegetable bowl, I steam veggies in it and the go right to the table. The wire basket protects the table. Line the basket with a napkin and it's a terrific bread basket. The decorative box is on my dresser. I use it to hold my pill bottles and syringes. So much nicer looking than having them out in view and gives a bit of privacy.
This Temptations 1.5 quart baker is a great purchase, especially at the clearance price! Its not very big, but perfect for small side dishes, soup for two, or to leave out on the counter to use as a large candy dish. So nice that it has the cute stoneware lid, and the matching box is made well too. I use mine on top of the refrigerator to hold attachments to my Kitchenaid mixers and some other kitchen tools. The box would be great for storing recipes or coupons too!
I purchased this as a gift for my step-son's bride to be. It arrived the other day, and it is simply lovely. I think she will love it and use it for many holiday seasons to come. Thank you, Tara!
More Pointsettia pattern please!
I love the Pointsetta pattern and will probably use it all year round. Nice quality and I love the box. I am using the box to store my Kitchenaid accesories on top of my fridge. Make more Pointsetta pattern pieces please!
