Level Up Your Dorm Room Cooking with These Tools
Most of the time, dorm room kitchens shouldn’t even be called “kitchens.” What they should be called is “that corner of the room where you have a mini fridge with a microwave on top of it.” That doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to a life of potato chips and ramen noodles. Here are some ways to go a little more gourmet:
Reheatza® Microwave Crisper
The Reheatza® Microwave Crisper works by essentially creating an oven within your microwave. This is a great tool for reheating things like pizza, French fries, and chicken nuggets (which incidentally are the three main food groups of college). But you can use it for pretty much anything.
InstaEgg Microwave Egg Boiler
If you thought dorm room breakfast meant cereal and protein bars seven days a week, we’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be that way. This microwave egg boiler is the best flame-free way to hard- and soft-boil eggs quickly for a nutritious, protein-filled meal.
OXO Good Grips® Microwave Egg Cooker in Red/White
If you prefer your eggs scrambled or “fried,” this is the way to go. This works well for breakfast sandwiches and scrambles.
Sistema® Nonstick Microwave Steamer in Red
This is officially the quickest way to steam vegetables. It has a nonstick steam basket and a built-in valve to release steam. You’ll have a healthy dinner ready in no time.
