  1. Good morning! What a delightful perusal of the staples. When it comes to everyday functional items like these, I find it so much easier to go off of recommendations. Amazon is full of items, but they’re not all created equal. I have several of the items here, but the nested mixing bowls caught my eye. We had a set gifted when we got married, and they’ve started breaking. I have been on the lookout; I love the fun color options. How funny that you prefer the shorter oven mitts- they’re all I use! I’m the only one I know that hates the longer ones. This is the perfect list for a wedding registry or updating the kitchen staples. Thank you for compiling and sharing. I sure hope the weather cooperates for the warehouse sale- we’ve had rain these last two days; equally, I wish I were able to make it. I have no doubt it will be a success. Cheers to all the busyness, Wednesday vibes, and a weekend headed our way!

      Hi Lauren! Same- recommendations are always best! Many of these were recommended to me by friends & family, and I’ve grown to love them over the years. The shorter oven mitts are the BEST! The other ones are too bulky, more difficult to use, and never fit in my drawer. Totally with you on that! We’ve been having amazing weather over here. I hope you had a sunny weekend! I’m playing catch up over here before my mom gets into town later this week (finally)!

  2. HIGHLY recommend Public Goods all glass/silicone (no plastic that goes bad or is bad for you!) dishes for leftovers!
    Rate them 10/10 and have been using them for going on a couple years! On the pricey side but well worth!

      Thanks so much for sharing, Jes! I’ll have to check those out!

  3. Good morning! Don’t mind my tardy comment, I was all about the garden yesterday! Since I’m well past the wedding registry age, I’ve occasionally wondered if folks still do that. Such a helpful, practical tradition! Actually, a handy Amazon wishlist seems valuable for many occasions, tbh. My kitchen is embarrassingly well-stocked, and I can also vouch for many of these items. All-Clad and the KitchenAid are no-brainers. I’m not a gadget person; however, my stick blender and food processor are indispensable, fyi. I upgraded my stainless mixing bowls several years ago with a different set, but mine don’t have lids. So smart! I use those silicone mats nearly every day; they are topnotch. I don’t know if it was necessary, but I purchased 2 sets with different color trim. I keep one for savory and one for sweet. In the low-fi category, that mortar and pestle IS gorgeous and a fab price! I actually use mine frequently. Such a comprehensive and beautiful list, Sarah. Your Amazon store front is so well-organized and curated. Truly helpful! Thanks for putting in the time to keep it current.💜

      I’m playing catch up over here, too! I actually published this post late (and always appreciate reading all of your comments!) so no apology necessary. We’ve been in a wedding and graduation gift buying era. It’s crazy that our nieces and nephews are starting to graduate high school. My bestie is getting married later this year and registries are still a things- though gone are the days of scanning items… it’s all online from multiple retailers. I know you rave about the food processor, but I still never use mine. Haha! Maybe I need to bring it down to a more accessible cabinet for easy access. I feel like I’m missing out on a lot of easy, delicious recipes. I just throw everything in the blender.
