Appliances in a dorm room...

So, kitchen appliances such as hot plates and toasters are -technically- not allowed to be used in the dorm rooms here, but they are permitted in common areas. The trouble is, the only common area on my floor is the laundry room, and I'm not about to start flipping pancakes on top of a washing machine. My question is: Has anyone gotten away with using one of the aforementioned appliances inside a dorm room without setting off the smoke detector/fire alarm? And what would it take to set it off? I mean, would it take billowing flames, or just some intense heat to get that siren going? I'm sick of microwaved, steamed food- Please help!
