University Student Kitchen Essentials!

Now, I've just spent the last three years of my life at university and I've lived in three different apartments/houses, so I'd like to think I know a fair amount when it comes to what you need! Besides all the usual items (laptops, clothes, chargers, etc) there might be some you don't know you need or even those that you didn't realise you'd need. This blog should help you decide what you need, and be warned this isn't an exhaustive list - there will be more stuff you need. Not everyone will need all of this, and you may decide to share some items amongst friends (i.e if you're sharing a house).


1) Pots & Pans

Another essential for any kitchen (obviously!). Now, you're going to need to check beforehand what type of hob you have, whether its induction or gas. If its gas, then the Amazons Basic range below is perfect for that. It's an 8 piece set (or 15 if you want that) which will enable you to cook pretty much any meal. They come with the relevant lids and are the best on the market, all for under £40. You're not going to want fancy pots and pans, trust me, they will get scratched up, burnt, or broken.

Now, if you live in an apartment then you'll most likely have induction (as per regulations). If so, then we recommend Velaze 8 piece set. This is pretty much the cheapest on the market, and we think its great value for money. Most induction pot sets are well over £100, however, these are under £50. They are super easy to clean and aren't too heavy either.

2) Utensils


Now to actually cook with your lovely new pots and pans, you'll want utensils. You can spend ages online trying to find everything you need, but we found a fantastic 40-piece set that will have everything a student could ever need (and more!). All are dishwasher proof too (not that youll have one of those, and if you do then you're a lucky student).
