Q: My fiancé and I are working on creating our registry, which includes items that we need and know we will use a lot. We both love to cook and are excited about upgrading some of our well-worn kitchen items, especially our pots and pans. Is it better to register for an entire set of pots and pans? Is that a more economical way to do it?

If so, how do you ever decide on brand? Or should we just find the perfect sauté pan, sauce pan, fry pan, etc. for us and not worry about matching? It seems silly that they would need to match, but there also might be some pros to having a consistent set. Any thoughts or advice is much appreciated!

Editor: Readers, do you have any thoughts on registering for a set of pots and pans versus individual pieces? If you advocate buying a set, do you have any advice on picking a brand?
