Tired of two-minute noodles and takeaway pizza? These kitchen gadgets will help you create tasty, convenient and cheap meals to rival any meal delivery. Think versatile stick mixers to blend smoothies and pancake batter, the classic sandwich press, and even egg cookers to make breakfast a breeze (because who really knows how to poach an egg?).
Whether you’re cooking for the house or making Monday night meals for one, these six genius gadgets will give you instant kudos in the kitchen.
No chips are crispier than those emerging from an air fryer drawer. This benchtop appliance works a lot like an oven to perfectly roast, cook and fry foods with the magic of rapid hot air circulation. Easy to use and easier to clean, this uni cooking essential has your late-night snacks sorted. Think chocolate brownies or french toast, party snacks and many other surprising air fryer eats.

Your toasties are in good hands with this expert appliance. Don't take a chance on a charred sandwich – warm-up and ready lights indicate the perfect temperature and toastiness. You and your mates’ meals are sorted, with space for up to four sandwiches at once, while a slim design lets you slip it in the cupboard after lunchtime.
Prefer a gourmet sandwich? Adjustable height control means you can seal the ham and cheese with anything from sandwich bread to thick-cut sourdough. For lazy student cooking, the humble sandwich press doubles as a non-stick hotplate for frying Sunday morning bacon and eggs.

Whether you’re a soft boiled, hard boiled or poached kind of person, you can add up to eight eggs at once and let the egg cooker do its thing. You can even cook an omelette! Egg cookers are not just for eggs, either – pop in the vegetable steaming rack for easy dinner prep.
“Appliances like egg cookers are a blessing for small student kitchens. Savvy features such as built-in timers and automatic switch-off make mealtimes easy and speedy,” says Tracey Ellis, The Good Guys Buyer – Portable Appliances.

All those morning cafe runs add up. Get a budget-friendly caffeine hit with a capsule coffee machine. Sleek designs look pretty on your benchtop, while a simple set-up dispenses barista-quality coffee with the press of a button. Made for missed alarms and coffee on call, these machines heat up in as little as 25 seconds. For convenient uni living, choose from a library of capsules to flavour your cap, latte or long black.

Save on the elbow grease and grab a stick mixer for all your blending, whisking, stirring and chopping needs. As the compact cousin of Mum’s hand mixer, this handy tool has a single shaft for mixing in bowls and cups to save you extra washing up. When it comes to cleaning, just give the blades a rinse or pop them in the dishwasher. A host of attachments make it your one-stop prop – it can blend your breakfast smoothie, chop ice for frozen cocktails and much more.

Whip up a week’s worth of rice in a rice cooker. Use fresh and fluffy rice to level up your stir-fry while saving on meal-prep labour. Rice is also super cheap to buy, so your budget will thank you, too! Some rice cookers can handle up to 10 servings at once, so you can share it around or store leftovers in the fridge for later. Friends running late for dinner? The stay-warm mode keeps cooked rice warm until you’re ready to serve.
