Being a student boarder means living away from the creature comforts of home. You need to be able to look after yourself, and this means being able to whip up something to eat without mom or dad to do the cooking.
Keep yourself well-fed. Here are five kitchen appliances to help you survive:
1. Small refrigerator
Needless to say, this kitchen staple will keep your food edible. It also doubles as an impromptu air conditioner for those unbearable summer afternoons.
The busy, hardworking student will often have to turn to leftovers and microwavable food, especially during “hell week.” Equip your kitchen with a microwave for quick and easy meals you can make in under two minutes. This appliance will save time and money in the long run.
If you’re in a hurry and in need of quick and substantial nutrition, you might want to blend vegetables and fruits with your whey protein and other health supplements for a nutritious shake you can drink on the go. Blenders save time and help cut needless calories!
No need to duke out cash for a cup of Starbucks every time you need to “burn the midnight oil.” Save money and keep awake during mandatory all-nighter sessions -- with a percolator, good coffee can be accessible in large quantities for half its usual price.
There’s a bunch of online recipes for quick and satisfying bread meals that microwavable food or leftovers just can’t provide. A toaster will serve the student boarder well for their breakfast, midnight snack, and even their lunch needs too!
