There are safe ways to cook in an SRO.

"I'm worried about cooking safely in my room."

  • Use appliances approved by the building. These usually include a microwave, slow cooker (crock pot), blender, or a covered electric skillet.
  • Make recipes that require no cooking like hummus wraps, salad, cold soups, and sandwiches.
  • Use the community kitchen if the building has one.
  • Ask a friend to cook with you. They might have appliances you don't have and vice versa.
