I think we can all agree that one of life’s greatest pleasures is grilled cheese. You know, it’s two toasty pieces of bread with a whole bunch of melted cheese in the middle, sound familiar? Yeah, we thought so. 

One problem, you can’t make it in your dorm room. Until now, that is. It turns out that clothing irons actually double as grilled cheese makers. Just make sure you have tin foil though because it can get very messy without it.
