Please tell me I’m not the only person out there who loves walking into Williams-Sonoma, planning out my dream kitchen. I did this even before I was engaged and setting up my registry there! If you’re anything like me, then you’re going to be really excited about today’s giveaway – you can enter to win a $150 gift card from Williams-Sonoma just by registering or adding a new item to your current registry.

Some of the things from W-S that I love and use just about everyday are my flour sack dishtowels (I’m a firm believer that one cannot have enough of these in the house – they’ve totally replaced paper towels for me), my Silpat non-stick baking sheet liner (no longer leaving half the cookie on the cookie sheet), and my Picardie drinking glasses (they make me feel like I’m at a French cafe!).

And then there’s my fantasy kitchen, with things like a waffle maker, a marble pastry board, copper mixing bowl and yes, a fancy garlic press (my sister has one of these and I want it).

Now, who wants that $150 gift card? To enter, you need to:

– Register with Williams-Sonoma, then leave a comment here letting us know you’ve registered, and what your favorite W-S item is and why.
– Or, if you’re already registered, add another item to your registry, and leave a comment here letting us know what you’ve added, as well as your favorite W-S item.

You have until next Wednesday, September 1st, to enter. I will announce the randomly selected winner on Friday, September 3rd. Oh, I should also mention that you can receive an extra entry if you include your public registry link in the comment. I can’t wait to hear all about what you’ve registered for!

    Oooh, we less than three Williams Sonoma. We added a new knife block to our existing list; since neither of us has be able to convince the other of the superiority of our own knives, we need a block that will accommodate both sets. Our favorite item is the bee tumblers, which they sadly no longer make.

    Here’s the link to our registry: Thanks!

    I added the American Kitchen Commercial Stockpot, 20qt, Item #: 11-2867034. My parents have one of these, and use it almost daily for our expanding family! I would like to be prepared as my own family starts to expand. My favorite item from Williams-Sonoma has to be the ebelskiver pan I received in my Eater basket… delicious and easy! Such a fun treat.

    I just went a little nuts starting my registry. My favorite item right now that I can’t wait to get is… the garlic peeler. Simple, I know, but I hate peeling garlic and this is one of those items I could never bring myself to purchase. It will be a fun gift to get, though! Our registry is at:

    It’s so hard to pick one favorite item, but one of the top for me is the past machine! I’ve been wanting one for years!

    I just added the covered cookie sheet to my registry. So useful for baking! Thanks for the giveaway!

    My husband and I were married in France last year (he’s French) and we both added our own favorites to the registry although the need for it has pretty much passed. We love to cook, and explore different cuisines. We have many favorites, but our most useful and loved object has to be our maple cutting board. We use it not only to prep the food, but also as a serving platter. It looks beautiful and serves the purpose!

    If walking into Williams-Sonoma on a dreary day doesn’t brighten my mood, I don’t know what does! I am a huge kitchen gadget junkie and I LOVE all things food which is why I knew from the moment my amazing fiancé and I were engaged that WS would be my #1 stop for registry items! What is not to love about this place?! I have to admit its hard for me to choose just one favorite thing, so I decided to go with the multi-use utility knife. I use this knife for everything and it slices wonderfully! I honestly think you can’t have enough, because at least 2 of mine are always dirty – so I registered for another. Today I added some silpats to my list (can’t believe I overlooked them) and plan on adding more items as time goes on. Thank you WS for making my dream kitchen a reality!!

    I am MADLY in love with their Multicolor Ceramic 7-Piece Mixing Bowl Set and have been since the day I we first made eye contact back in April -despite the fact that I could never justify the 159.95 price tag. If I won the gift card I could pay only 9.95 for the whole set!

    Currently registered at Williams-Sonoma and my favorite gift I’ve received so far is the 10-piece glass bowl set. It’s amazing for food prep.

    And Williams-Sonoma customer service is equally incredible. Despite being securely packed, when the bowls arrived one of them had shattered. I called customer service and the representative couldn’t have been nicer. UPS came the next day to pick up the original package at no extra charge and two days later I received a new set.

    We’ve been using the grill we share with our neighbors a lot this summer so I think I’m going to add some of their great grill accessories to our registry:

    I registered and added an All Clad roasting pan as my first item. My fiance love to cook together and have been slowly accumulating a few special items from WS over the past 6 years that we’ve lived together. We cannot wait to add to our All Clad and Le Creuset collections, not to mention the fun appliances like a Belgian Waffle Maker!

    We’re registered at Williams-Sonoma! I just added the Maple Bacon Rub to our registry, because those are two of my fiance’s favorite flavors and he is the master of the grill!

    My favorite items from Williams-Sonoma are their specialized bakeware — especially the cake pan that looks like a giant Oreo cookie, and the acorn and autumn cakelet pans. One of my friends even used the mini-wedding cake pan to make beautiful little cakes for my bridal shower!

    I’ve always admired the items at W-S but could never bring myself to buy anything! So of course, W-S was our first stop when we started our wedding registry. Our favorite item thus far is the All-Clad D5 saute pan with splatter screen. It is now a staple in our kitchen and does a fabulous job searing a blackened salmon.

    We’re big bbq lovers but setting up the smoker is a big job. I added the Demeyere Smoker Pan to our registry. Although there are no reviews on it yet, the idea of smoking small foods on an as needed basis is wondrous. Thanks for having this giveaway!

    I could have added all of Williams-Sonoma to my registry. I LOVE the store. And I can’t even cook…but my fiance can! But I can bake and clean! So of course I added the floursack dishtowels because they’re so soft and wonderful. I also added the garlic slicer/masher. My final addition was the Picardie tumblers.
    I’ll also tell you what my favorite piece on this registry is…the Breville blender! It’s the most perfect blender and I’ve had blender envy for a while so I can’t wait to get my own!

    What a dream to walk through Williams-Sonoma and create our registry! We’re still adding to it. I was inspired by your suggestion of the Silpat Cookie Sheet Liner, so I added that. We’ve talked about getting one for a long time. Can’t wait to bake some cookies together!

    I received a third pan off my registry for my wedding shower and we use it to store our homemade ice cream. It’s the perfect size for storing in the freezer as well as in our limited Brooklyn apartment kitchen with very little storage space!

    Our dream date nights is cooking at home together, so a gift card would be so fun to stock up the kitchen!

    We just signed up for Williams-Sonoma’s registry for our wedding! I have just now added the OXO stainless steel salad spinner after my fiance said first that he thought we really didn’t need one. However, after trying to make salad for the first time last night since we’ve been together (I usually do it), he changed his mind. The salad was all wet and he said, “Okay, you’re right. I think we need a salad spinner after all. This is just not working.” :)

    Oh, and by the way folks, I know it is temping to register and hope for the 6 qt monster Kitchenaid 610 Pro, but unless you are planning to breed and feed an army it is just too much. I have one and NEVER USE IT because a) it is too heavy to lug out, and b) the bowl is too big to affectively mix average sized batches. It is effing beautiful, though!

    My favorite thing from Williams Sonoma is the Lime Chili rub my fiance purchased. Since I’m a usually a klutz in the kitchen, she sends me to the grill where I’m more comfortable. While playing with spices, marinades and fire is more my territory, this rub was so delicious and easy to use that my fiance grilled me some of the best pork tenderloin I’ve ever had!

    Because she stepped out of her comfort zone, I would like to step out of mine and make her some cookies that aren’t burnt and stuck to the cookie sheet, so I added the Silpat non-stick cookie sheet to our registry! Hopefully it gives us as much luck
