The Perfect Recipe: CookwareCreate your ideal collectionIf you're somewhat new to cooking, a collection of stainless steel cookware is a perfect choice for your registry. A very forgiving material that performs beautifully, it's also easy to clean and compatible with tools of any material-all great when you're learning to cook. Another big plus: stainless steel is usually dishwasher safe, so you can spend more time cooking and less time cleaning up. For ultimate ease of use, every cook needs at least one nonstick pan in their collection. It's the perfect mix of performance, durability and easy maintenance. You'll want a few enameled cast iron pieces in your kitchen, too. Wonderfully versatile on the stove or in the oven and capable of lasting a lifetime, cast iron has an oven-to-table ease that makes great presentation easy-another thing to keep in mind as you register. When you're cooking for a crowd, especially around the holidays, you'll need great pieces for entertaining. Include larger cooking vessels and a good-sized roasting pan in your registry, and don't forget about unique extras-like a fondue pot-that are great for dinner parties.Experienced cooks, this is a wonderful time to improve or expand your collection.
