These Multi-functional Electric Cookers Are Ideal for Dorm and Solo Living

Congratulations, you’ve found the ideal place to rent! The rate fits your budget, it’s near your workplace (or school), and the neighborhood is thriving with many places to explore. But there’s a catch: You’re not allowed to cook with a stove or an induction cooker. While this is a minus for many, it doesn’t mean that you’re not allowed to cook at all. This is where electric cookers come into the picture. Not only are they space savers, but they also help when multi-tasking in the kitchen. 

Here are the best electric cookers available within Metro Manila that you can buy below P600 online!
