Rapid Brands for College Students
Being a college student getting ready to move out of my parents house to live on my own, the one struggle is how you’re going to feed yourself without going out for fast food or going to restaurants every day. After living in a dorm for a year my first year of college, I know how hard it can be to make food for myself in a small dorm; most people don’t want to go to the dorm kitchen to make their food on the stove or in the oven so they end up just having food they can make in the microwave or they go out and eat.
We got four different rapid cookers to try and we were very excited about all of them. The first one I had to try was the Rapid Ramen Cooker. Since I work a lot and don’t want to spend money every day on food at work, I bring my own food to make it easier. I brought the Ramen cooker in to try it and since then I’ve brought it a lot more. One heads up for each of these rapid cookers is that you may have to put it in for a minute or more after what the cooker says depending on your microwave. After the three minutes that the Ramen cooker said to put it in for, I had to put it in for another minute to cook the noodles completely and then it was ready to eat.
The second cooker we tried was the Rapid Mac Cooker. The same thing happened with this one where we had to put it in for an extra minute. This cooker makes an entire box of Kraft mac and cheese in just a couple of minutes. The third rapid cooker we tried and were really excited about was the Betty Crocker Microwave Brownie Maker. This has a plastic piece on the inside to measure out your ingredients for a half a box of brownies and then you pour it all in the pan, stir it, and put it in the microwave. I did end up doing the toothpick test after the 3 1/2 minutes the package says but then put it back in for 2 more minutes until it was completely done. These were very fudgy and soft brownies and I know I’m going to be using it again. The fourth cooker was Minute Rice Microwave Cooker but since we aren’t really big rice eaters in this house, I am going to be bringing it with me when I move out because I know how hard it can be to cook rice on the stove correctly so to have this will be so helpful. I know I’m going to be using these a lot more often and will be looking for more Rapid cookers in the future!
