Your new dorm room may not include a kitchen, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to hang up our chef’s hat. It just means that you’ll need to start thinking small. As in small kitchen appliances. Here’s a quick guide to small space cooking featuring some of our favorite small kitchen appliances.
• A Removable Plate Grill will keep you satiated with burgers and steaks all year long. Plus, you can use the grill to make grilled sandwiches.
• Countertop Microwaves will keep you well fed throughout the school year and then travel with you to your first apartment. And they go way beyond microwave popcorn. You can make everything from Microwave Pita Pizza to Simply Simple Shrimp Scampi Skewers.
• And don’t forget the coffee makers. You’re going to need the caffeine to make it through those all night study sessions. Whether it’s a single serve model for grabbing a cup of joe on the go or a 12-cup programmable model to make enough coffee for you and your roommates, we’ll keep you pepped up for a lot less money than a coffee shop will charge you.
Please note that some college dormitories do not allow personal cooking devices. Please check the rules in your dorm before you open your own personal cafe in your room.
