Save money by making your own delicious coffee and espresso at home.

The coffee-obsessed among us will need a fancy coffee machine in their new home. Aside from saving you money as newlyweds (buying coffee can seriously add up), the Nespresso VertuoPlus also makes delicious coffee and espresso and arrives with a wide selection of flavors to choose from. It’s our favorite single-serve coffee machine, too, since it’s compact (it can be stored seamlessly on small counters) and brews quickly.

You can also purchase a myriad of attachments—like a pasta maker, meat grinder, and vegetable spiralizer—to take the mixer to the next level. Plus, it comes in a wide array of gorgeous colors to match literally any decor.

A good, high-quality set of pots and pans is a necessity for all newlyweds and will last for years. This Cuisinart cookware set is our top pick because it’s made of durable stainless steel, cooks food evenly due to its triple-ply construction, and is easy to handle—i.e. they aren’t too heavy. And it comes with everything you need to cook a meal—two saucepans, a stockpot, a medium-sized sauté pan, two skillets, and a steamer insert.

A set of good knives is a wedding registry essential.

When you think of wedding registries, knives might not be first the thing that comes to mind as most people have some sort of cutlery. But, a good set is essential for a new couple to establish their own kitchen. Think about it—knives are used in just about every kitchen task from chopping vegetables to spatchcocking a chicken, so you want tools that can do these things efficiently. Here at Reviewed, we recommend this Zwilling knife set for its comfortable use, super sharp knives, and inclusion of 7 different knives that any starter kitchen would appreciate.

The Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven worked as well, and in some cases, better than air fryers at browning and crisping.

Air fryers are one of the hottest kitchen gadgets for so many reasons. They cook things quickly, make the crispiest foods, and help you make fried-tasting foods without all the unhealthy fat or oil. One of our favorite air fryers is this one from Cuisinart as it’s super easy to use, has a large capacity (it can feed an entire family), and whips up the crispiest, crunchiest food with minimal effort.

A cast-iron skillet is a fabulous addition to any newlyweds​ kitchen.

Reasonably priced and incredibly durable, cast-iron skillets are a great addition to any newly married couple’s kitchen. While giving food the perfect crisp—without sticking, I might add—they can cook a wide array of foods quickly and deliciously with minimal clean-up. After testing a plethora of cast-iron skillets, we found that we love this enameled one from Staub the most. It has a gorgeous enamel finish in a wide array of colors, pours out drippings easily, and is dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.

What's better than a Robot vacuum? Absolutely​ nothing.

A clean home is the key to a happy marriage—or so I assume since a "happy wife equals a happy life." The iRobot Roomba j7+ is the best robot vacuum we’ve ever tested because of its powerful dirt pick-up​ and ability to clean all types of floors. It also has some neat features too like the ability to select which rooms it should and shouldn’t clean and how it can empty its dirt bin into its charging port.
