Heading off to university for the first time can be so exciting but so daunting. You won’t realise how much stuff you have to move until it’s actually time to pack! Trying to create a list for what kitchen essentials you’ll need can be a tad overwhelming with lots of different guides floating about on Google, but we’re hoping to help you out.
Packing your essentials up may feel overwhelming but creating lists can make the process a lot easier!
But before you start to make a list of things to buy, check with the accommodation you’ll be moving into if they already have some appliances. You don’t want to spend money on a toaster and kettle then find out your uni halls already provide them.
Cheap and cheerful student deals may seem like you’re saving some money but in the long run, quality kitchen products are the best investment. A £9 frying pan will seem like a bargain until your food starts sticking to it a month later.
The Everyday range has you covered for all of your kitchen essentials from cutlery to pans to knife blocks and everything in between. Here’s our top recommendations that you absolutely need for your uni kitchen.
Everyday 3 Pce Knife And Peeler Set
You typically don’t use more than 2 or 3 knives when cooking at uni so the Everyday 3 Piece Knife and Peeler Set is perfect to take. For just £11 this set includes 2 x paring knives, a santoku knife and a straight peeler.
With so many frying pans on the market it’s tough to choose which one, especially when a low price tag is catching your eye. We recommend buying a good quality pan because it will last you so much longer than a cheap one.
Viners Everyday Frying Pan 22cm Non Stickdurable pan is made from stainless steel and has a double non-stick coating, so your halloumi won’t stick to it. It’s suitable for gas, electric, ceramic, induction and halogen hobs.
Saucepans are probably one of the most used items in a uni kitchen because everyone loves a pasta or noodle dish. The Everyday 3 Piece Saucepan set includes 20cm, 18cm, and 16cm saucepans with the correct sized glass lids. If you’re in a studio and feel like you don’t need all 3 pans, you can buy each size separately.
