The Registry: Artsy & Elegant Cookware Ideas

One of the most important wedding registry gifts for new couples is cookware. There are an innumerable amount of choices on the market, and few of them mix form with function. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to have to choose between quality and design. Well, I’m happy to report that I have had the opportunity to try many brands on the market that fit the bill. These recommendation will not only look good on your table, they are built to last.


Great Jones

Great Jones is a brand that wants “to make your kitchen your happy place.” The brand is known for its rainbow offering of sheet pans and dutch ovens, delivering on their mission of making the kitchen a happy place. They are probably best-known for their dutch ovens, but they offer a full array of kitchen staples such as stainless steel pots and pans, bakeware, enamel cast iron skillets, and even measuring cups!

Standout Selections:

Precious Metals Stainless Steel Set – $455 USD

Sheet Show Set – $85 USD


Hestan Culinary

Hestan is perfect for heavy-duty cooks that appreciate refinement and elegance. This brand has collaborated with numerous world-renowned chefs to develop and innovate pro-quality cookware. You will be hard-pressed to find many brands that can compare in terms of quality. The pans feel as though you could run them over with an SUV and not find a single dent in them.

Standout Selections:

OvenBond Tri-Ply 5-Pice Set – $440 USD

16.5″ Classic Clad Roaster with Rack – $225 USD


Whether you’re the artsy/colorful type, or the chic/elegant type, there is something out there for you. I don’t believe in re-buying things that can be invested into once. With proper care, these selections will become heirlooms to serve the couples that will come after you.
