A wedding registry is an easy way for couples to arm their homes with an arsenal of everyday goods. Curating one, therefore, can feel like a huge undertaking. Should you opt for the Sonos or the record player? How many guest towels is too many? Will a Roomba really change your life? Earlier this year, we discovered a crucial bit of information: The number one item couples regret not adding to their registry is cookware. Luckily, it looks like newlyweds-to-be are learning from the mistakes of their predecessors.

Wedding planning and registry resource The Knot recently released its top registry takeaways for 2019. In the report, the company spotlights the five most popular items registered for on The Knot Registry, all of which we were delighted to find come in handy in the kitchen. Topping the list is the ever-popular KitchenAid stand mixer, followed by OXO stainless steel measuring cups, Pyrex multicolored storage containers, Cuisinart’s four-slice toaster, and a Ninja Kitchen System. Overall, bakeware is the most popular must-have, with 87 percent of couples opting for items like mixers, baking dishes, and nesting bowls.

It’s also important to note that couples aren’t just looking to fill their homes with fancy appliances and single-use gadgets. The majority of their requests ring in under $50—a major bonus for guests who are slammed with weddings this summer. Lesson learned? Whether you’re buying a gift for someone you love or finishing up your own registry, you can never go wrong with a clever find for the kitchen. If you’re still unsure about what to snag, below we’ve rounded up a few elevated products that will impress without fail.

What would a Domino-approved gift be without an unexpected splash of color? Hay’s two-toned green coffee pot is perfect for earlier risers and morning couples, while East Fork’s horn salad servers are a fitting choice for the duo who loves to entertain. For trusty essentials, we love Material’s angled cutting board (its grooves are designed to catch any crumbs) and Dansk Kobenstyle’s pastel butter warmers and saucepans for date nights at home.
