i'm going to be moving into a college dorm soon with no kitchen
i have the space and money for approx one or two pieces of cooking equipment on top of the mini fridge i've already bought
what should i get that will allow for the greatest versatility of cooking in my shitty dorm?
i'm currently considering a george foreman and a kettle
>>
>>16834022
Electric kettle for oatmeal and eggs, electric stovetop with one heating element with a small pot for one pot recipes.
>>
Electric frying pan. If I didn't have access to gas all of a sudden it would probably be the only thing I cooked in.

George forman grill.

hot plate
toaster oven

They're called air fryers now, gramps.

this and a convection microwave.

>>16834022
Easy. Don't live in the dorm, band together with some friends and find a damn apartment. Dorms are for rich fags with no brains. Your cost of living will be halved, and you get proper amenities.

seconding
consider induction but it's not necessary
can be found for $50 and will boil water quickly like an electric kettle, so it's like 2-for-1
toaster oven can heat up frozen appetizers like potato skins, egg rolls, personal-sized pizzas, etc. as well as toast/broil bread like bagels and hamburger buns (you could make some sloppy joes with your hotplate!)
you could also bake some hobo packs like picrel
you didn't mention a microwave, and while i can personally work around not having one, you may wish to reheat certain foods
in such a case i would replace the hotplate since a microwave can boil water

I roast entire chickens in my toaster oven, they're much more capable than you'd think

hell my model even comes in a microwave-toaster oven combo, I'd spring for one of those
>>
>>16834022
Instapot
You can actually sauté in the instapot, and don't have to keep it on counter top.

airfryer/toaster oven style
You can make yr nugs, corndogs, toast, keep raw potatoes in yr room and you can make super cheap fresh fries. Replaces microwave too.

I'd keep a skillet and 5th burner too
>>
>>16834022
Doesn't your dorm have a dining hall?
>>
>>16834022
You have no versatility. Give up on the idea.

Keep booze in mini fridge, eat overpriced burgers for 4 years or find a bargain student resto.

Get a deep fryer. Seeing as you don't even have to pay for electricity, you can leave it simmering 24/7 for convenience.

What's the first post even trying to say?

It's just some faggot trying to make people think mafia related media is racist because they're a smol fragile wholesome uwu bean trying to rid the world of stereotypes

>>16834022
Instant pot w/ air fryer lid
microwave
>>
>>16834022
Literally all you need is one good pot and an electric burner.

You can use it to fry, boil, saute, grill, etc. and you dont have space for an oven anyways.

Cleaning it is simple and leftovers are easy to just keep in the pot itself.

Just be sure to get one that is wide for its height if you're planning on flipping stuff.

WOPs are really like that, though.

>>16834022
Instant pot.
>>
go to the caf like a regular college kid
>>
>>16834022
Crock pot
>>
>>16835214
it's $500/month for 3 meals a day at my dining hall, I could just get actual restaurant food instead of slop for that price.

Garlic crusher and a Kenmore stand mixer.

Yes but this seems a lot more like some white zoomer that randomly picked a new slacktivist cause to champion for twitter points, the second post was obviously a pre planned response for the first person to might light of him

>>16837414
Mines 400/ week for boarding and 7 meals (dinner)
>>
>>16835214
i don't wanna eat that shit, lol
i've got a buddy a year ahead already in the dorm, says it sucks, so i wanna make my own food
>>
>>16838296
Idk about you but my dorm has pretty good food. It's buffet as opposed to canteen
>>
>>16838343
sounds nice, iirc it's like that for breakfast, then canteen for other meals
>>
>>16834307
Only correct answer
>>
>>16834022
buy cast iron
>>
>>16834022
Greatest versatility as cheap as possible? Just get a rice cooker. If you have the space, get a portable induction hob and a mini oven. Than you can pretty much have a functional kitchen and can do everything from frozen pizza to a 3 course meal that will get you laid. Don't get a microwave, oven or pan will do the same and more, kettle is useless as well, don't get meme shit like a grill as it's not versatile at all.

Why try cooking in the dorm at all, if there's a meal plan available? $500 for 90 meals/month approx. comes to $5.55/meal for what i assume is a buffet style chow hall, which isn't bad at all. You're already wasting thousands on college, why waste your time cooking and doing dishes in a shitty dorm bathroom sink as well? Just get some deli meat, bread and snacks for the mini-fridge for when the dining hall is closed.
