High-quality sets of pots, pans, and knives are key for any kitchen, but be honest with yourself when registering for other culinary-related items so you don’t waste valuable storage space. If you or your fiancé love to cook, figure out what’s on your wish list and go for it. If you eat out a lot, think about whether you’re going to actually use a panini maker or an avocado slicer. If your place is the usual gathering spot to start off the evening, consider registering for multiple types of glassware to accommodate any request or statement-making appetizer plates to go along with predinner drinks.
