haha! I totally do! My FH HATES going to walmart of target with me, I can spend hours debating things like knives and pots and pans. I start these little conversations with myself that are never ending!

Ha! I do to a point- when my SO and I moved in together- we slowly started buying stuff, so now we ALMOST have all the nice appliances we have ever wanted. However, I’ve made up ridiculous rules: we can’t buy a coffee maker, we need to use a coffee-press. Nice knives-and a pizza stone out the window until he puts a ring on it. Like that is gonna help my situation. Undecided

Um I’m pretty sure weekly I think of something that we could just register for. I always tell BF well if we got engaged we could register for a Kitchen Aid mixer or we could have nice place or what not. He rolls his eyes at me. I don’t think I’m enticing him any quicker.

Yes, I do. It’s even worse when buying a house and you need stuff, but then you say, hey, maybe one day he’ll propose and I’ll get new good, name brand stuff.LMAO (Yea, I say one day because I’m in a BAD mood!)

I just try to make it off what I have and plan to register for the fun stuff.

Here’s what I recommend in the meantime! Skip the Paula Deen knives, go get yourself a GOOD chef’s knife. You can do almost everything with a nice chef’s knife, so you’ll have a good knife while you wait; and then when you register you can fill in the rest of the set!

(My top recommendation is Shun. I have Wusthof knives myself, but the Wusthof knives I’ve seen in stores lately looks like they have started cutting corners on quality.)

Here’s a good one. I’d recommend get at least the the 8″. It’s pricy, but I’d soooo much rather have a single good knife than a whole set of so-so quality knvies!

You only need a couple of really stellar knives! I use the same two over and over again. As long as they’re sharp and you hone them, you’ll be fine!

@MsEucalyptus  – Once you get a high-quality knife, you’ll be sold on them! I completely understand where you’re coming from, I always thought it was crazy to spend $100+ on a knife and that people that bought such things were just throwing their money around… until my mom gave me a nice (Wusthof) chef’s knife one year for Christmas. The difference is absolutely amazing, I couldn’t beleive it!

This is great!! My SO loves to cook and about once a week he will be yelling about how we don’t have enough pots, or how the one pan we own is all banged up or our cheapo knives are dull.. I could go on forever. Everytime he does this I say, you know, my mom is waiting to throw me a fantastic wedding shower and YOU can pick out any kind of cookware you want! And you’ll never have to complain about crappy knives or banged up pans ever again! He usually doesn’t have anything to say after that.

LOL, YES! When I moved in with SO, he had more kitchen supplies than probably the average bachelor, but still was pretty lacking in that department. I’ve only bought a few small things since, because I can’t help but think it won’t be TOO much longer til we are getting married and being gifted such things!!

*sigh…* Of course, here I am over a year later continuing to use poor-to-mediocre quality steak knives to cut everything from pineapples to prosciutto… ugh! Haha!

I want a new Kitchen Aid stand mixer.  In a different color.  (I know…I’m a bit spoiled)  But I have to keep telling myself to put it off until I can register for it.
