Get University Essentials Packed & Ready To Go

Posted by Team Salter on 19th Jun 2024

Whether you’re coming to university for the first time, or coming back from a long summer at home, it’s time to start planning your essential checklist and making sure you have everything you need. Deciding what to take can be difficult, especially if you’re a first-year student. Here at Salter we want to make packing for uni simple and have included our  top picks for your essentials.

Cooking Essentials

Whether you’re living away from home for the first time, spent a year in catered halls, or are moving into a shared house, being able to cook will help you avoid buying expensive takeaways. Learn how to cook on a budget and buy cheaper ingredients to make your money go further. Think about batch cooking; you only have to cook once and get to eat multiple meals.

BlendersSlow Cookers

Save money at university and invest in healthy habits, batch cook slow cookers, and create your  smoothiesmilkshakes, soups, and sauces 

Coffee Machines & Reusable Coffee Cups 

Don’t waste money on throwaway takeaway cups for those long nights in the library, make your barista-style coffee and take it with you to lectures.

Sturdy Pans, Baking TraysKitchen Gadgets

One good  pan set is all you need and having the right gadgets set and cutlery is essential for the perfect meal.

Quick Meals

Uni is hard work and a  quick bite to eat between deadlines is perfectly normal. Invest in an air fryer  or tabletop grill for versatile cooking.

Healthy Breakfasts

Set yourself up for the day with your favourite  tea or create the perfect  eggs, a fluffy  omelette, or frittata.
