Small Space Living: Portable Stove NecklaceTools
College students, here’s one way to get around the restrictions on hot plates and toaster ovens in your dorm rooms: get yourself a stove necklace! You’ve got to see this to believe it.This tiny stove is made of brass and copper with its very own fuel tank. It burns alcohol, creating a very hot flame.

How I Found the Right Big Appliances for My Tiny KitchenTools
It’s ironic that living in one of the biggest cities in the world means having teeny-tiny appliances. I suppose it makes its own kind of sense — I reside on the island of Manhattan, a 23-square-mile strip of land that I share with more than 1.6 million other people. Space is tight, which means, among other things, that I didn’t own a dishwasher until about a year ago, even though I’ve been a grown-up with a job and a career for some time now.
