Fridge/food supplies

The crisper (bottom compartment) is our dedicated Soylent storage, and you are welcome to it.
Anything edible in the fridge, freezer or cabinets is fair game for you to use. Just make sure to
a) check things haven’t gone bad before you consume it! b) return things from whence they came once you are done with it
Don’t miss the large supply of soylent (banana and various chocolate flavors) in the bottom compartment!
Refills for any spices on the fridge can be found in the box at the top cabinet above the rice cooker.


Our sink is kinda dinky and small, so we use the dishwasher a lot. Almost any dish/utensil in the kitchen except for really small utensils (eg: teaspoons), the (really heavy) cast iron skillets, chef’s cleaver, and the cutting board are dishwasher-friendly.
Dishwasher soap will either be in the cabinet with the /garbage bin, or cabinet next to the dishwasher. Load soap, close the soap hatch, lock the door, and make sure to turn the dishwasher to “hot start” to ensure clean dishes.
bowls can go in here too once you have scraped most of the leftover food into the trash.


If you wish to use it, make sure to empty it of the pots and pans we store there before preheating.
It’s a very un-fancy oven with no timers or precook modes, but it works well. Make sure to turn it off when you’re done!

Other appliances


Keerthik never uses this and doesn’t stock coffee at home, but if you get grounds from somewhere, there should still be some filters you can use to make coffee if you would like.

Milk frother/steamer

It’s great for a variety of single-serving beverages, from hot chocolate/mocha/lattes to even cold coffee. At the simplest level it’s a kettle + stirrer, just place the black magnetic ring around the center shaft before pouring your ingredients in (eg: milk + hot chocolate powder), make sure the plug is on, and press go. After pouring your drink out, make sure to hand-rinse the magnetic ring and replace it where you found it. The main metal pot can be placed in the dishwasher. Make sure to hand-wash the magnetic ring and stick it back on the can beside the frother base unit.

Rice cooker

The Zojirushi is quite magical, has a timer function and different modes. Measure a flat cup, wash rice in the pot, fill water to mark, choose quick cook for rice in 20 minutes, other modes if you feel like it, go. Just be sure to use the paired rice scoop and no metal/wooden implements which might scratch the non-stick, and wash it with the gentle sponge only.

Instant Pot

If you like your Instant Pot recipes, feel free to go wild! You probably don’t want to this if you are not following instant pot recipes or experienced with it.

Kitchen-Aid hand blender

Located in the drawer between dishwasher and stove. Some assembly required. Again, if you are familiar with it, feel free, but be careful those blades are sharp!
