How to grill your grilled cheese sandwich in a hotel room or dorm room using a standard clothes iron

Traveling usually means eating a lot of fast food or sandwiches from a cooler, but some people get a lot more resourceful than that. Most times, you just need a source of heat and both the coffee maker and iron can provide that.

So of the most obvious techniques involve using the coffee maker to heat water for oatmeal or an iron for grilled cheese sandwiches. You can also fry eggs, cook bacon, prepare soft-boiled eggs, and even steam vegetables!

This wiki has a whole list of other foods you can try out in your hotel room, including Lemon Pepper Chicken in your coffee maker! Just make sure you clean out whatever small appliance you end up using so that the housekeeper doesn’t have to deal with your unique mess.

(Oh, and keep these in mind if you’re a college student living in the dorms. You may not be allowed an iron, but you’ll usually have access to a microwave as well.)
