18 peelers
72 consol Mason jars
9 peeling knives
9 kitchen knives
9 knives that look similar to the other two kinds to confuse the Satan
Set of pots and pans
Seperate egg pot
Seperate beets pot
Brown paper bags for the wine
Tomato peeler that is never used
4 football field lengths of foil
3 football field lengths of clear plastic wrap

You forgot: (not necessarily for Lubavitch)

1800 Haggadas in all shapes, sizes and languages (be sure to take them ALL down from the top shelf even though you will only use some of them, because hey, you never know..)
1 large print haggda for zaidy
1 extra large print haggda for bubby - for a bit more you can have it pre-stained with grape juice
2 afikomen bags (1 to use and 1 for when the first one falls behind the fridge and can no longer be retrieved)
1 case of plastic tablecloths
Lots of pillows for all the kids to fight over
Lady fingers!!! A trailer of them!
Macaroons - no human actually eats these things but you need them for the chol hamoed trip. It's a minhag, don't argue.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Huh? Where did you get that count from? Only 1 case? You need to figure out how many meals will be eaten at home, and how many on trips. One case per home meal, three for each trip.

And most important. Don't underestimate the amount of Schmaltz needed. Every year I have friends and family begging me for some as they didn't buy enough! You can never have too much Schmaltz!

And it doesn't account for different size tables.

First time making Pesach, what should be on my list?

Primarily for kitchen/food items, but you can add anything you find helpful
We would like to use disposables where we can.

I didn't see this discussed anywhere, so I think this could be a valuable topic, especially if we can add a wiki.

Any general advice or suggestions are welcome.

Why is this your first time making Pesach

I highly recommend using this tape, and this tape for use in taping/covering up in your kitchen (and elsewhere).
They don't leave a residue?
foil tape makes my pesach every year. easy on, lasts and easy off

I can't tell if that's a Kiddush lubavitch or chillul lubavitch. But one thing is for sure, that's a big lubavitch Kiddush.

+1

Also griding the Chrein is much easier with a good food processor.

I guess when it comes to equipment, it makes a huge difference as to what your Pesach menu looks like. For example, I can't imagine any use for a mixer in our Pesach kitchen. But definitely have use for a good food processor, a good manual citrus juice squeezer, and can make good use of a blender (for fruit smoothies).
A good food processor may have a juicer attachment.

I find the cheaper ones come with a juicer attachment and a whole bunch of other attachments you'll never use. As opposed to the more expensive ones.
I'm not who you think I am.
