When we set out to replace our ratty old pots and pans (or register for a wedding…or buy our foodie mom a gift…), our first stop is a fancy specialty food store, not Nordstrom. But it turns out our favorite department store has a wealth of high-quality kitchen items that are just as fashionable as the rest of their selection. Don’t believe us? These five items are already going on our food editor’s wish list.

1. Nordstrom At Home Large Wood Serving Bowl

Sure, you could put a salad in any old bowl. But this sumptuous wooden one makes eating your greens feel downright luxurious.

le creuset 7 quart dutch oven

2. Le Creuset Signature 7 1/4-quart Round Enamel Cast Iron French/dutch Oven

It’s big enough to whip up short ribs—or chicken thighs, or bolognese—to feed a crowd. (It’s also on sale!)

3. Wüsthof Classic Ikon 4 1/2-inch Utility Knife

It’s smaller than a chef’s knife but bigger than a paring knife, aka the ideal size for everyday tasks like chopping garlic or slicing an apple.

4. Dansk Kobenstyle 2-quart Saucepan With Lid

Nope, we don’t need another saucepan. But this one is so adorably mid-century, we can’t resist.

5. Rosti Mepal Cirqula Set Of 4 Storage Bowls

You can never have enough mixing bowls. If they’re millennial pink and come with storage lids, even better.
