The list author says: "A list of kitchen equipment compiled after extensive research. It draws heavily from Cooks Illustrated (the consumer reports for home chefs) and Mark Bittman's list of essential cooking items from NYT. You could purchase these items and have an excellent kitchen setup. If you are getting married just register for everything on this list. Or, if you happen to be setting up an amazing condo in Florida this will get you started. Enjoy.
