Dorm Cooking: Multi-Tasking Kitchen Appliances for College Students

College students are cramped for time, money and space. Why not make their lives a little easier, and a lot tastier, with one of these top multi-tasking small kitchen appliances?

In college, you may not have access to a nearby kitchen. When I lived in college hardly anyone used the common kitchen on the first floor. Nobody lived on the first floor, and there were hundreds of us in the dorm’s suites. When I read about these kitchen gadgets for the dorm room I thought those would be good items for the students who actually use a common kitchen, but what about everyone else?

For those students who don’t want to traipse down the stairs or the elevator toting pans and food and sponges, there are alternatives to dorm room cooking. So what are the essential small appliances every college student needs?

First, the appliances need to be compact, since space is at a premium. The cooking appliances also need to be electric. Also, they need to be quick and safe.

A small microwave can cook just about anything the college student can find to cook in it. Haing the ability to cook your own foods can help the college student resist ordering up fattening pizza.
