Whether it’s your big day or a friend’s, wedding season has officially sprung and registries are in full bloom. From toasters to tongs, it can be overwhelming sifting through what’s a must and what’s a maybe. To help, here are 4 timeless kitchen essentials you’ll be thankful for—even at your Golden Anniversary

1. KEY COOKWARE

Every new couple hopes to have dingy college cookware replaced with quality pieces. When scanning stovetop selections, balance personal preference with practicality. Cookware should feel sturdy, but not overly heavy or cumbersome. Sets may provide the best price per piece, but the hefty price tag could cause guests to skip gifting this staple.

To pare down the price tag, go à la carte and handpick a few versatile, everyday pieces including: a 12-inch frying pan, a 2-quart saucepan, a 4-quart saucepan and an 8-quart stockpot.

2. MIXING BOWLS

Unexpectedly adaptable, mixing bowls are the chameleon of the kitchen. From food prep to presentation, basic bowls get the job done, making them a registry requirement. Durable glass bowls are a timeless choice and pair well through the ages, regardless of how décor changes. For maximum versatility, gift the PYREX® SCULPTURED 8-PC MIXING BOWL SET, which comes with tight-fitting lids, so they can be used for everything from storing leftovers to organizing cupboards.

3. QUALITY KNIFE SET

There is no better companion in the kitchen than a good knife. So, select a quality set to carry you through decades of dinners. Before putting a pick on your registry, hit the store and handle several options to ensure the grip and weight is comfortable. Look for a set that offers a knife for every job, from chopping to precise paring. A set like CHICAGO CUTLERY® DESIGNPRO™ 13-PC BLOCK SET is complete and comes with kitchen shears for an additional win. Added bonus: Block storage protects your knives, while keeping them organized and within easy reach.

4. KITCHEN STORAGE

Upgrade plastic food storage with a glass set that is non-staining and ultra durable. Glass containers are easy to clean and make smart use of small spaces because they’re extra-functional. The glass goes from fridge to oven to table, so one set does everything you need. Pick a pack with plenty of size variety and versatility, like the PYREX® ULTIMATE 6-PC SET . Having options makes it easier to custom-organize every space in your kitchen.

New couples will be glad to receive these simple staples. Once the wedding is over and the happy duo settles into their new home, these basics will keep their kitchen cozy, comfortable and functional for years to come.
