Dorm Room Appliances
Every dorm needs a few small appliances, unless your students want to be running to a local diner, or the college cafeteria anytime they want a cup of coffee or something warm to eat.
You don’t necessarily have to invest a lot of money in dorm room appliances. For example, the bundle shown at the left is less than $100! You get all four appliances shown there for that price!
The main appliances every dorm room should have include a toaster oven (or toaster), a coffee pot (for coffee or hot water for cocoa or tea), a microwave (a must), and a small refrigerator.
You have a great selection of dorm room appliances to choose from here, so make sure your students are well prepared for dorm living.

What did we ever do before we had microwave ovens? You know I can’t even remember! We got our first microwave in the mid to late 80’s, I suppose, but what did we do before that? I bet we weren’t reheating near as many leftovers before then, lol. And now there’s a whole new category of microwave foods available too!
Give your college student the most convenient of the dorm room appliances – a microwave oven. From instant coffee to breakfast, lunch and dinner – you can be sure they’ll use it!
