I can’t answer this question because we’re not using a lot of our gifts right now because of our tiny apartment, but I’d have to say just having nice pots is key.  Oh, and really good knives. 

I didn’t get a Le Creuset, but I heart those big time.  I’m going to buy one when we get our first home.  😉

i heart my le creuset cookware!  we didn’t register for it — i actually bought them myself.

i guess the most useful things have been our global knives and all clad cookware.  i wish we had registered for china in retrospect!

My Calphalon pots! I heart them. I use the wok almost every time I cook. And recently I broke out the Kitchenaid mixer and food processor… perfect for holiday baking.

Sadly, I haven’t used any of the nice china or silverware yet. 

We didn’t get any Le Creuset and I am too cheap to buy my own!

We didn’t have a huge registry but we did get J.A. Henckels knives which we both loooooove. It’s crazy – you don’t know how much your old knives suck until you try one of these puppies. And it’s definitely the gift we use the most.

Definitely our knives, our wok, and our pressure cooker (yes, I’m old school).

My giant Le Creuset is fab, and the KitchenAid stand mixer. I’m obsessed!  I look for recipes where I will get to use it!

My Cuisinart MINI prep plus (food chopper). It’s just the perfect size for servings from 2 to 8. You can use it for salsa, pesto, guacomole, onions, garlic, quick chopping for stirfry. It makes the prepping process go so much faster.

Penguin, I use it primarily to make Indian curries.  I was so anti-pressure cooker for the longest time because I once saw the top come off on my mom’s old pressure cooker when I was a kid.  It literally shot off and curry went everywhere.  It was kind of traumatizing! But I have a nice electric one that feels very safe.  I have this Indian beef stew recipe that I love but it would take over an hour and a half on the stove– in the pressure cooker, I can do it less than thirty minutes.

Our Lodge Pan, our 14 cups food processor and the mixing bowls set. Love them, we use everything every week. And we exchange some gifts we were less likely to use to get a coffee machine (Breville 1 cup) for Hubby, saving a lot on not going out for coffee that way.
