Dorm Essentials for Eating in Your College Dorm Room

You're going to be eating in your college dorm room more than you thought you would. Before moving into your college dorm room, you probably thought you would eat every meal in the college cafe and were possibly wondering if your meal plan was large enough. However, you may find that you end up eating one or less meals a day in the college cafe. It can be because the college cafe food isn't that great, but more than likely it's going to be for the simple reason that you're busy and your schedule doesn't match up with the cafeteria's. Below you'll find some cheap dorm supplies for eating in your college dorm room that you want to make sure are in your college dorm checklist as you head off to college.

Microwave Bowls and Food Covers - If you're eating in your dorm room, you're going to have a dorm microwave. Getting takeout every night can get expensive, so you want to make sure you have a microwave and cheap dinner and breakfast options such as oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, and ramen. For these dorm essentials you want to make sure you have some microwavable bowls to warm up your food and eat out of, and you also want to make sure you have a microwave food cover for your plate. You have studying to do - you don't want to spend time cleaning up splattered spaghetti sauce or soup out of your microwave.

21 Piece Dorm Eating Set
- You're not going to want to bring glass or ceramic plates to college with you. They're heavy, hard to store and too easy to break. And should those ceramic or glass plates break, the pieces are going to go everywhere and you'll spend a lot of time cleaning up the mess. For dorm eating, plastic is a ideal and great option. These dorm necessities are easy to store and you don't have to worry about them breaking on you. This handy college supplies set has everything you need for eating in your college dorm room - cups, mugs, bowls, plates, and even a serving bowl for potato chips. Simply add some silverware and you're set for eating in your dorm room.

Silverware Set
- Speaking of silverware... DormCo has that, too! You don't want to be that college student who's always "accidentally" "borrowing" forks, spoons, and knives from the college cafeteria. You could alternatively opt for some disposable plasticware, but our dorm experts do recommend making an investment in a simple silverware set for your dorm room. Having reusable flatware is a must-have for every college student, even if you aren't doing much cooking in your dorm room–after all, you'll still need a fork to eat takeout! Some of our dorm silverware eating sets even include a silverware holder, so you can keep your dorm kitchen setup perfectly organized.

Cookin Caddy
- Wondering where to store the plates and silverware you're adding to your college supplies? This cookin caddy conveniently keeps those college supplies right where you want them - on your dorm mini-fridge. This dorm storage solution sits right on top of your mini-fridge so you keep your plates in a convenient spot and don't lose out on dorm room storage in other areas such as your college closet.

Random Dorm Cooking Gadgets
- While all of the above dorm kitchen supplies are pretty much essential to your ability to cook and eat in your dorm room, there are a few college cooking accessories that are more "wants" than they are "needs". Sure, you could pick up a basic pizza cutter from the dollar store... or you could get one of our unique pizza cutters, like our Pizza Pi Cutter or Guitar Pizza Cutter. You could just get a boring, basic ice cube tray the next time you're at the grocery store... or you could choose our Swordsicles - Premium Ice Tray and make awesome sword-shaped ice cubes. No matter what other dorm cooking supplies you choose, when you buy them from DormCo you know that you're getting some one of a kind cool dorm stuff!
