Wedding registry -- are these pieces sufficient?

I registered for Wusthof Classics - a 13 piece set to replace our old, worn out knives and steak knives, and an additional santoku. I know Shun's are probably better but I read a lot of good reviews on Wusthof.

I really appreciate everyone's advice!

In this case, both my fiance and I cook every night. Two nights ago we had a roast and risotto and last night was roasted chicken and vegetables, if that eases your mind about registering for expensive cookware.

We registered for a Wusthof block and an additional Wusthof santoku.

We cook a lot -- it's our favorite thing to do together, so we're registering for mostly cookware/dining pieces. We tried to pick high quality stuff that should last a long time. I have a non-stick Kitchenaid cookware set that I've had since college graduation (don't want to even think of the amount of Teflon I must have ingested by now), and I chose the specific All-Clad pieces based on what we use most from that set.

In the Kitchenaid set, we use a 1qt saucepan, 3qt saucepan, and 3qt saute the most, so those three corresponding All-Clad pieces were a no brainer. I usually use the saute as a fry pan if needed, but registered for the skillet for smaller applications.

Forgot to mention that -- we're registered for the Calphalon Contemporary Non-Stick Roaster to replace our crappy roaster we've been using.

Wedding registry -- are these pieces sufficient?

I'm currently in the process of making my wedding registry. Right now, I have:

All-Clad® Stainless Steel 11" Covered French Skillet
All-Clad® Stainless Steel 1 1/2-Quart Covered Saucepan
All-Clad® Stainless Steel 3-Quart Covered Saucier
All-Clad® Stainless Steel 4-Quart Saute Pan with Domed Lid
Calphalon Stainless Steel 8-Quart Multi-Pot 4-Piece Set
Le Creuset® 3 1/2-Quart Enameled Cast Iron Braiser
Le Creuset® 5.5-Quart Signature Round French Oven

Do you think this is a good combo? We don't use the frying pans we currently have much, so I didn't register for any All-Clad fry pans, I'm hoping the french skillet will work there.

I really wanted the All-Clad double boiler insert, but it doesn't fit in the 3qt saucier and I couldn't justify also getting the 4qt sauce pan to fit the double boiler.

Is there anything I'm overlooking? Thank you!
