    5 qt dutch oven, for sure.  I have several pieces in cherry and that’s what I use the most.  There isn’t much else like it, too, which you can’t say with the skillet and baking dish (for example).

    I would put the skillet, the dutch oven, and the sauce pan on the registry in the colors you love.  I have a big soup pot from them in Caribbean and I love it…and it was only $40.  That’s definitely doable!

    5qt French Oven. It comes in handy for so many things and the Le Creuset will last for-ever. It’s expensive, but in my opinion the perfect kind of thing for a registry because it will literally last you a lifetime.

    i would also probably say the 5 qt french oven. I love creuset – its amazing. I say, register for the pieces you want and if people get them for you great, if not, no harm no foul. People will only get what they want to get you so just register for whicever pieces you want 🙂 

    As an aside, I don’t know if you have a Home Goods (part of Marshall’s but they only sell home stuff) anywhere near you but they often have Creuset pieces there that are deeply discounted. I’ve gotten a few pieces there. And there are some Creuset outlets as well.

    Creuset is great, and as someone else said, it will last a lifetime!!

    I have the dutch oven in Caribbean and it is one of the most useful kitchen pieces I have – plus it looks HOT!!!!

    I love all of my Le Creuset pieces! The ones we use the most often are the baking dishes. But, the Dutch oven is so versatile! The grill pan is also very handy!

    I’ve been wondering how this also, lol.  I recently was introduced to the brand (friend took me to the actual store) and was impressed.  But I dunno what I’d use the most.

    We received (or purchased at the outlet) several Le Creuset pieces.   We didn’t receive or buy the French oven since it’s the most expensive…and we figure that we can use  the braiser and/or the crockpot to cover most recipes that would require it.

    We’re still learning how to use what we do have (braiser, grill pan, skillet, and baking dish, plus some smaller/less expensive items).  The baking dish is “cheery” and fun to serve out of, but not necessarily unique.  For the other pieces, I like them a lot for recipes that involve sautee plus oven, but not recipes that are stovetop only…they take forever to heat up and at least so far I get better results from other nonstick or stainless cookware on stovetop.

    Some other fun things to accent with are the spoon rest and tea kettle!

    Side note: we also wanted le creuset stuff but felt bad registering for such expensive stuff when reasonable alternatives seemed to exist! If you want to fill out your collection with less expensive pieces, check out the Mario Battali (spelling?) line of cast iron cookware. We’ve really enjoyed ours!

    I put the braiser and the 5.5qt on ours. My dad has soooo many pieces in blue, and he uses them daily – all from my parents wedding in 1984! Definitely an investment, but I feel like some relatives love gifting things like that.

    We actually just recieved the Creuset zen tea kettle today! That’s so funny!  That’s a great piece to register for as it’s really reasonable in price. I can’t  wait to use it!
