You know what would be really, really helpful when building a Wedding Registry? Having a super thorough (but also very practical) list of the all things a good kitchen has, right there while you browse. You’d just check things off the list and after I Do you get to come home to a kitchen that *actually* has everything you need, like for real. Know where we’re going with this? It would be extra nice to see how everything comes together in one place, so we made that happen too. Keep reading for our guide to a well-appointed kitchen with Crate and Barrel, including our top three must-haves AND the most popular registry item!

Kitchen tools

First up on your Registry, all those little tools and supplies that make life in the kitchen so much easier. It’s easy to forget about things like a zester or garlic press until you’re halfway through a meal without them. No more!

BTW, we’ve added the full list of each and every item at the bottom of this post so you can simply click and add.

Life with a good solid cutting board. SOOOOO much better, right?

The neat thing about this bamboo flatware tray is that it’s expandable. So it can fit just about anywhere and includes two additional dividers for extra storage.

Okay, so are you ready to hear what our top three Wedding Registry must-haves for a well-appointed kitchen are? Drum roll, please…

Our first must-have is a good, good set of pots. Finally! With the All Clad ® d5 Brushed Stainless 7-Piece Cookware Set you can officially replace any and all old mix ‘n match cookware you’ve been using over the years for a complete set. And you will never have to think about it again. Hooray!

Kay, now that you’ve DEFINITELY added heirloom piece #1 to your list, our second must-have is the KitchenAid ® Artisan Stand Mixer. It’s also *the* most popular Registry item. And it should be… It will last as long as your marriage! When you think of how long these mixers actually last (and how much you can do with them), it’s one of the best pieces you can have, as far as kitchen tools go. Crate and Barrel has every color you could ever want, including the gorgeous *Shaded Palm* that is exclusive to them.

Btw, how cute is this ceramic egg crate? Also, we opted for a simple nesting mixing bowl set to go with our white kitchen but whatever you choose, just make sure you snag a full set!

One last key item to complete your kitchen: a cast iron. But you’ve probably been told that before, huh? Take this opportunity to add a cast iron skillet and cast iron griddle to your Registry. We’re still using cast irons from literally decades ago, in case you’re not convinced. And they’re actually pretty affordable so you really have no reason not to!
