You don't need to buy a toaster if you already have an oven with a grill. Just put the bread under the grill and flip it over to toast both sides.
Unless you're planning on doing some super fancy cooking/baking, you're not going to need a whisk. A fork is good enough for whipping up basic things, and it's all you'll need to cook any of our recipes.
You're probably thinking this is a university essential, but you don't need to buy one. Just visit the freshers fair during the first week of term and there will be loads of companies giving these out for free.
Just use a pan - check out our simple tutorial for cooking rice.
If you need to roll something out (like pizza dough) use a wine bottle.
Super expensive and takes up loads of storage space. If you need to blend something, a small smoothie maker might be a better idea.
Don't waste your money on these - it's easy to make a poached egg in the microwave or in a pan.
None of our recipes need a measuring jug. We always use things like mugs, spoons or shot glasses as measurements in our recipes so you don't need to buy a jug (or wash it up all the time).
Plastic Food Containers
You'll get these for free if you buy a take-away. Give them a wash and keep them for leftovers. Obviously we're all about cooking your own food, but let's be real, you're going to have a take away at some point during uni!
Just use your hands. Think of it as a workout.
Salt and Pepper Mills
Waste of money - you can easily buy salt and pepper already ground up.
