You’re heading to college! That’s a pretty big deal, but what do you need to bring?

ThinkStock/Comstock

So you're off to begin the final four years — well, for some — of school. Wahoo! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves; you have a grueling schedule ahead of you for sure. Heavy textbooks, chapters upon chapters of reading a night, papers, quizzes, projects, essays — wait, what about the social side of school? You know, where you mingle and meet new people that will become the friends you have for the rest of your life? That’s a tremendous part of college, too.

In between the clubs, the teams, and the groups, there's a space for everyone to just hang out. Make time to cook together, eat together, and party together — as long as you have the right tools to do so! Whether you’re cooking for one or cooking for 20, you’re going to need to pack a few things in order to do it right. Think about all those parties — ahem, we mean, study groups — you’ll be having. That said, if you’re living in a dorm, you have to stick to the dorm rules. But if you’re living in an apartment, run free and stock that kitchen by all means.

We’ve compiled a neat Pinterest board of our college musts — some that we love, some that we had ourselves, and some that we wish we had when we were in college. We don’t miss those ramen days, that’s for sure.


Dorm Room Essentials for Food-Loving College Students

Gourmet dining is pretty out-of-the-question in a dorm room (unless you’re these guys), but you can make the most of your new digs with a few kitchen essentials. If your college does not provide your dorm room with a microwave or mini-fridge, invest in those first. Once you’ve got the must-haves, here are some examples of our favorite small — and dorm-approved — kitchen tools can make all the difference when you need something a bit more edible than the dining hall special.

Cold-Brew Coffee Maker

Forget buying yet another electronic. Dorm rooms have limited outlets that will often be occupied by multiple chargers and that mini-fridge cord. Get your caffeine fix cord-free with a cold-brewer. Pick one that can brew in your fridge overnight, so you can grab-and-go on your way to your 8 a.m. class.

Chameleon Cold Brew Kit, $16, chameleoncoldbrew.com

Reusable Water Bottle

Don’t waste precious dining points on water bottles. Invest in a BPA-free reusable bottle that can claim residence on the side of your backpack. College campuses are scattered with water fountains so you shouldn’t have a problem refilling it. Just make sure to wash it out with mild soap and water every day to avoid getting sick.

When your mom sends a care package with your favorite snack foods, she’ll stock you up for a few weeks. Invest in some durable chip clips to keep your half-eaten chips and cookies from going stale and to keep any unwanted critters out of your room.

OXO Good Grips 8 Piece Clip Set, $10, oxo.com

On those days when you feel like giving dorm room cooking a shot, you can make a variety of dishes in a mug. Think: mug cake, chicken pot pie in a mug, mug mac and cheese, even an omelet. Invest in a mug that’s large enough for mixing ingrediens and microwave-safe. It’ll even double as a handy bowl for soup and ramen.

Speaking of bowls, you can skip investing in plates. Bowls are easier to eat out of while sitting on a bed and can be used to mix ingredients for anything else you’re making like no-bake cookies, fruit salad or soup. Invest in ones that you can hold easily to avoid spilling on your sheets.

Automatic-Shut Off Electric Tea Kettle

This might be one of the most versatile appliances to have on-hand. You can use it to brew hot water for tea, French press coffee (invest in one of these for all your to-go coffee needs), hot cocoa and instant ramen. Save the manual to prove your kettle does automatically shut off so it’s not confiscated during dorm checks. Finally, don’t be surprised when your floor mates ask to borrow it all the time.

Krups Savoy Electric Kettle, $59, walmart.com

Glass Food Storage Containers

Leftovers are a huge part of your campus survival guide. Glass containers are great for storing (and reheating!) the rest of that nice dinner with mom and dad.

Pyrex Ultimate 6-pc Value Set, $33, pyrex.com

Paring Knife + Cutting Board

A paring knife comes in handy for more than slicing up fruit and vegetables and you’ll want a cutting board to avoid messing up your desk. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself cutting sandwiches in half and re-slicing takeout pizza.

On those days when you feel like giving dorm room cooking a shot, you can make a variety of dishes in a mug. Think: mug cake, chicken pot pie in a mug, mug mac and cheese, even an omelet. Invest in a mug that’s large enough for mixing ingrediens and microwave-safe. It’ll even double as a handy bowl for soup and ramen.

Speaking of bowls, you can skip investing in plates. Bowls are easier to eat out of while sitting on a bed and can be used to mix ingredients for anything else you’re making like no-bake cookies, fruit salad or soup. Invest in ones that you can hold easily to avoid spilling on your sheets.

Automatic-Shut Off Electric Tea Kettle

This might be one of the most versatile appliances to have on-hand. You can use it to brew hot water for tea, French press coffee (invest in one of these for all your to-go coffee needs), hot cocoa and instant ramen. Save the manual to prove your kettle does automatically shut off so it’s not confiscated during dorm checks. Finally, don’t be surprised when your floor mates ask to borrow it all the time.

Glass Food Storage Containers

Paring Knife + Cutting Board

A paring knife comes in handy for more than slicing up fruit and vegetables and you’ll want a cutting board to avoid messing up your desk. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself cutting sandwiches in half and re-slicing takeout pizza.

    In my opinion, you admit the mistake. I can defend my position.

  3. Luduvico

    Between us speaking, in my opinion, it is obvious. You did not try to look in google.com?
