I have a few sets of Temptations bakeware and love them. They are beautiful to serve in, and so convienent with the racks that come with each dish - go straight from oven to table. They also come with lids for storage, and most have the wire racks with removable trivets you can use separatly. Easy release of baked goods - ceramic is naturally non stick. Great even cooking and browning. These are all handpainted and gorgeous. I collect the"Old World" style and they even have placemats, paper towel holder, bowl etc, to match. I can't say enough about Temptations. They are great. They are also freezer and microwave safe. I am a chef and would not trade Temptions for any other bakeware!
