THE BEST DORM ROOM MINI MICROWAVE:
1. BEST OVERALL
COMMERCIAL CHEF COUNTERTOP MINI MICROWAVE
This is the best overall mini microwave for your dorm room! First off, it's only $62!! It has almost 6,000 ratings on Amazon and has 4.4 stars.
The best part is that it's only 17 inches long and will be the perfect compact size for your dorm room!! But, It still has enough room to fit a full dinner plate.
2. MOST COMPACT
WHIRLPOOL COUNTERTOP MINI MICROWAVE
Talk about MINI!! This Whirlpool mini microwave is so small, it looks more like an old tv than a microwave. It's made to utilize every bit of your small space and to fit perfectly in a corner!!
It has a clean, sleek look and will perform exactly as needed without taking up too much space.
3. MOST VERSATILE
CUISINART 3-IN-1 MINI MICROWAVE AIRFRYER OVEN
Okay whatttt? Anything that's 3-in-1 is perfect for a dorm room because you have such limited space. I wanted an air fryer SO bad for my dorm room, but I thought that seemed a little excessive for a dorm room lol.
Having a microwave/air fryer combo would be a game-changer and I SO wish I had this!
4. BEST REVIEWS ON AMAZON
AMAZON BASICS MINI MICROWAVE
The Amazon Basics microwave is so cool!! If you have an echo dot in your dorm room, you can control your microwave with your Alexa. That's crazy!!
This microwave is $75 and has almost 28,000 ratings and 4.4 stars.
5. CUTEST STYLE
HADEN VINTAGE RETRO MINI MICROWAVE
If I'm being quite honest, I'm not a huge fan of the retro look most of the time, but I actually think this one is pretty cute!
The neutral beige color is super cute and would match with any style of dorm room. If you want a microwave like this, I think the best place to have it is in your dorm room!
6. AMAZON'S CHOICE
TOSHIBA MINI MICROWAVE OVEN WITH SMART SENSOR
Is it just me or will you order anything that's Amazon's choice? If you're looking for a simple, good microwave, this one is for you. It is $123 and has a ton of features that make it worth the price tag.
If you are sharing a microwave with roommates, a reliable microwave like this would be perfect to split the cost of!
7. RELIABLE NAME BRAND OPTION
BLACK + DECKER MINI MICROWAVE
When shopping for kitchen appliances, I am always pretty consistent with buying popular name-brand items. Everything "off-brand" that I have purchased is always super cheap and falls apart.
Going with a Black+Decker microwave is a really good option because their appliances are very well known and have been used for many, many years.
8. COLORFUL OPTION
COMFEE' RETRO MINI MICROWAVE
If you want to do something a little fun and different, why not get a baby blue mini microwave?? It's honestly super cute and gives that vintage look.
It's normally $109, but sometimes goes on sale for $87! Amazon says it's the #1 New Release in countertop microwave ovens, so you know it's a good one!!
9. HIGHEST POWER
PANASONIC MINI MICROWAVE OVEN
This Panasonic microwave oven looks super sleek. I added it to this list because it is 900 watts and will give you all the power you need to chef it up in your dorm room!
It has smart cooking settings and even a keep warm feature. This is a super nice microwave that you would love in your dorm room.
10. BEST MINI MICROWAVE RACK
EXTENDABLE MICROWAVE OVEN H-FRAME RACK
You know in a dorm room having good organization and storage is key to utilizing your space and keeping it looking clean.
This is a two-tiered rack, so you can store snacks or plates and bowls on the top. There is nothing better for keeping your dorm room kitchen organized than this mini microwave rack!!
11. BEST SPLATTER COVER
TOVOLO VENTED COLLAPSIBLE SPLATTER PROOF FOOD COVER
If you want to avoid cleaning your microwave often, you're going to want one of these vented splatter covers.
You know when you reheat spaghetti and then half of the sauce is all over your microwave? This mini microwave splatter cover will stop that from happening!
12. MINI MICROWAVE STEAMER
13. MINI MICROWAVE EGG SKILLET
HOME-X MICROWAVE EGG SKILLET WITH LID AND HANDLE
One thing I made ALL the time in my dorm room was microwave eggs. I have a feeling they would turn out a lot better in a little microwave skillet like this!
It is honestly just so cute, it makes me really wish I had one. If you are an egg eater, you definitely need this mini microwave egg skillet!!
14. MINI MICROWAVE RICE COOKER
GOOD COOK MINI MICROWAVE RICE COOKER
I am probably the #1 fan of Trader Joe's microwave rice, but I would probably save a lot of money with one of these! Nobody is on a tighter budget than a college student, and rice is about as cheap as it gets!!
Having this microwave rice cooker would allow you to make some super cheap meals in your dorm room mini microwave!
