Wedding registry help/newbie to quality cookware

runners84 | Feb 16, 2012 10:22 AM

I have been reading boards for a while, but just joined because I believe you all share invaluable advice (and I hope to be able to share some in the future as well). I am getting married in October and am finishing up our registry. We had originally registered for a set of Calphalon Tri Ply, but based on a few recommendations from people I work with and from information I got from these boards we decided to give all clad a try. We got the D5SS 10" fry pan and a 4 quart casserole pot at a WS outlet (to get us through to my shower, our collection of college pots was terribly and I was nervous about using the peeling non-stick pans much longer)... we love them!

We both love cooking (even more now that we have quality pots, which I think makes it more fun). It's usually just the two of us and when we have people over it's rarely more than 6 people. We do hope to host Thanksgiving next year (it will be out first as a married couple) To round out our registry we added:

All-Clad 3-Quart Stainless Steel Saute Pan

All-Clad® Stainless Steel 2-Quart Covered Saucepan

Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 8-Quart Stockpot with Lid (the all clad were just so expensive and I really only see myself using a pot that big to boil water for pasta)

Le Creuset® 5 1/2-Quart Round French Oven

Any suggestions on must have pieces? I was looking into adding a Le Creuset Braiser and a 12" all clad fry pan or french skillet. I also had a calphalon SS roaster for holiday turkeys but read very mixed opinion on spending a lot on a roaster. Right now I have granite ware roaster on the registry.

I know this topic has been discussed a lot, I'm just overwhelmed and even after reading previous discussions still feel a bit unsure of what I should add (or delete)! I apologize for the long post, I just thought more information might help!

Thanks in advance for your expertise!
