The Wedding Registry Gifts We Still Use 10 Years Later (and the Ones We Don't)

The Wedding Registry Gifts We Still Use 10 Years Later and the Ones We Don t Life in the Kitchen The Kitchn


10 Kitchen Items We Wish We'd Included

Enameled Dutch oven: Le Creuset or Staub. A total classic, and a piece westill don't have.

Instant-read thermometer: Yes, the Thermapen is totally worth it, which makes it worthy of inclusion on any serious kitchen registry.

A nice pepper mill: It feels like a luxury, but it's actually super practical. I'd want a Peugeot or a Perfex.

Beautiful bakeware: There are so many options here. I'd be thrilled with thisthis, or this — anything that could seamlessly and beautifully go from oven to table.

Half sheet pans: kitchen essential, and a nice budget option for registry.

Nested mixing bowls with lids: A sturdy, stainless steel set will last for years. I'd register for either this Cuisinart set or this Oxo set. I also love this glass set from Williams-Sonoma.

Super-powered blender: If you're a blender person (and you know if you are), this is a no-brainer. Vitamix, BlendTec, or Breville are all solid choices.

Electric kettle: We have a basic electric kettle, and use it every single day. I'd love a temperature-controlled kettle, like this one from Breville. Great for tea and coffee drinkers, where temperature control is key.

Pressure cooker: I don't know that I would have thought to register for this 10 years ago, but I've been converted to the cult of pressure cooking. (See hereherehere, and here if you need convincing!) I'd probably register for the Fissler 8.5 quart Vitaquick.

A stellar chef's knife: I mentioned earlier that we eventually upgraded our knives ourselves, but if we'd known any better, we would have registered for a terrific chef's knife to start. Chef's knives are very personal, but here's a good place to start. I ended up falling in love with the Messermeister Meridian Elite 7-Inch Kullenschliff Santoku. It's just really light, comfortable, and fits my hand perfectly. It made chopping so much easier!
