You don’t need a set of twenty pans, these are our essential five: a large oven-safe skillet (for searing meat, making pan sauces, finishing dishes in the oven), large nonstick skillet (for fish, eggs, pancakes), two sauce pans and a large pot for soups and stews. While you could add a small skillet to the mix, you can do anything in a large skillet that you can in a small. —FW Test Kitchen
Worth the investment, we use this workhorse for making everything from whipped cream to dough and, with some of our favorite attachments, for rolling out pasta, grinding meat and stuffing sausages. ($269.99, amazon.com) —FW Test Kitchen

Store lots of wine, up to 146 bottles, on shelves that extend way out, making it easy to see everything. Two separate zones means we can keep reds and whites at the ideal temperature while a slanted shelf is perfect for open bottles.
The see-through glass door in this super sleek model makes us stay organized. The deep crisper drawer holds lots of produce and the all stainless one is perfect for meat and fish.
