Cookware

what cookware are you looking forward to inheriting?

I'm (just) over 50 and my parents are alive and fairly well. They're hanging on, barnacle-like, to their kitchenware. There are two items I want; my dad's little CI pan, maybe 5" in diameter and perfect for a fried egg, and a metal meat grinder that you clamp to the edge of the counter and crank by hand. Perhaps some of the japanese tableware my dad got from his parents. We're the type of family who openly discusses this - not in a macabre way, IMO. My sister wants the silver, I could not care less about that.

If you have living parents/in-laws/other relatives, are there any items you are coveting?
