An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and an easy slicer keeps knife inept teens out of the ER.
College kids are known for inadvertently destroying every kitchen item they own, so consider a basic Corelle set of microwave safe, dishwasher safe, drop-proof and all around college student-proof dishware.
Your student will be the envy of his dorm's floor when others see he has this Emerson refrigerator complete with an ice-cream storing freezer.
Every student needs a George Forman grill. It's easy to use, can cook everything from a basic panini to juicy burgers, and runs in the $15 range.
When your student moves into their first apartment, they will need a set of gadgets to aid them in more complicated cooking tasks. KitchenAid makes a stellar line and this kit covers all of the basics.
Thermos is the king of keeping things warm and toasty,and their sturdy travel mug is guaranteed to keep your college student warm by filling them with hot chocolate, tea and coffee on those cold winter walks across campus
A toaster and a poacher all in one? You bet! This Inspector Gadget worthy creation works as a regular toaster but also has an area to poach an egg and a place to warm up ham or meat.
Now that your new-nester has graduated to cookware, snatch up this Paula Deen 12 piece, non-stick set. It's a perfect, affordable starter set and the pans are stainless steel. But if your baby zones out pulling an all-nighter during exam week and burns a grilled cheese, it won’t be the end of the world.
Whether your child is allergic to peanuts, shellfish or wheat, keep them safe by attaching a personalized food tag to their lunch boxes to warn others. Tags are printed with your child’s name and emergency contact information in the event of an unexpected reaction.
Most campuses don’t allow full-sized coffee makers in their dorms, but to keep your caffeine-deprived kid from sleeping through her first class, set her up with this single cup Keurig coffee maker.
Make your daughter feel just like her culinary queen of a mother with these adorable and reversible matching aprons. All sets are handmade, unique and made with dollops of TLC.
On the nights when mom and dad aren’t cooking (we call these “fend for yourself” nights), your teens will thank the heavens for this fast and easy to use quesadilla maker.
When it’s your teen’s turn to bring in a school treat, whip out this innovative pan for perfectly divided brownies.
Peeling potatoes and other veggies is the perfect way to get kids helping in the kitchen. So let your kids monkey around with this fun and bright orange peeler!
Whether your teens are on a sports team, or just muscling through eight hours of school, keep them hydrated with this spill proof, .75 liter CamelBak water bottle.
Your teen will love you for the magic bullet and will use it to no end for protein shakes and after school smoothies.
Your kid will love munching out of Scooby's Mystery Machine, and all of their treats will stay at a healthy temperature thanks to Thermos's polyethylene foam insulation.
Getting your children involved in the kitchen is easy when the tools are kid sized like in this Curious Chef 5-Piece Pizza kit.
Release your baby into the popcorn and Ramen run world of dorm life with this basic and reliable Sharp microwave.
A set of bowls is essential for the student baker, and these bright red KitchenAid mixing bowls are fun, sturdy and store easily.
