NEW YORK — The NYPD cop who allegedly plotted to cook and eat women asked for baking pans and "Oven Lovin'" in his wedding registry earlier this year.

Gilberto Valle, 28, an officer at Morningside Heights' 26th Precinct, and his wife Kathleen Mangan requested stainless steel pots, an immersion blender, a food processor and many other kitchen items in advance of their June 19 wedding.

Valle was arrested Wednesday after a federal investigation uncovered his plans to kidnap women, cook them slowly in his oven and then eat their body parts, according to court documents.

Other items on his Amazon wedding registry included Rachael Ray's Oven Lovin' $137 10-piece cookware set and $41 five-piece nonstick bakeware set, a $40 Cuisinart food processor, mixing bowls, a garlic press and freezer storage containers.

Valle and Mangan also asked for a few non-culinary gifts, including a set of pillows and DVDs for "Downton Abbey."
