I am always looking for ways to save space in the RV while not losing too many of the comforts of home. And one of the biggest problems was too many of the kitchen appliances I use at home are just too bulky and heavy to keep in the RV… then I discovered these brand new mini appliances!
See how perfect they would be when you need to save space? They would actually fit in those tiny RV cupboards! And when you are already struggling with weight issues in your RV, you can bring some of these without feeling guilty as if you brought the heavy full-sized version from home.
Cooking with these types of mini appliances are becoming more popular and there are websites with a ton of recipes for them too.
And it isn’t just things like a skillet, grill or waffle maker. There are mini bread machines, pie makers, egg bites maker, toaster ovens, rice cookers that do double duty for making soups too… some other types of mini appliances? How about a compact-sized air fryer to make healthy french fries on the road?
Many of your favorite recipes can be converted to these small appliances too – for example, it is easy to reduce regular slow cooker recipes for the smaller one we feature here. Or you trade-off appliance side with having to make waffles individually rather than 2-4 at a time like the full sized waffle maker. And having fresh bread without having to venture from the RV park or campground is amazing.
Here are our favorites for mini appliances that are perfect for your RV.
Griddle, Waffle Maker and Grill / Panini Maker Set
The first one is this 3 pack which has a griddle, a waffle maker and a grill. And you get three for less than the price of one full-sized appliance.
They are the perfect size for doing single servings of everything from eggs, to pancakes to grilling hamburgers, chicken or even as a panini press. And it comes with a recipe book too.

Compact Air Fryer
Air frying is healthier yet traditional air fryers are extremely large and bulky, and more than a few RV owners have discovered that the height makes it awkward for storing in most RV kitchen storage spaces unless you take up a ton of the pantry space. So this air fryer is the perfect size for doing quick batches of french fries or chicken tenders in a blink.

If you love rice, you know how inconvenient it is to make in the RV, since you need to keep it on the stove for a longer period of time, which you don’t want to do during the heat of summer. And if you only have one stove burner, it makes it more complicated to plan meals if you want rice to go along with it.
This smaller rice cooker comes in five colors and is the perfect size for 2 cups of rice. And you can also make soups and veggies in it too.
