Pizza is the most wanted food in the galaxy, so there’s only one slicer for the job (well, maybe two). The Boba Fett pizza slicer. It even has sound effects!

I’m genuinely afraid to find out what will happen to my casserole when this Death Star kitchen timer reaches zero.

Lord Vader’s lightsaber slices pizza with awesome sound effects…and without mercy. I am bursting with puns, but the product description sums it up best:

“There’s been no better time to join the dark slice!”

Toru Yamashito, a blacksmith from Japan, created a series of beautiful, high-carbon steel utility knives that just happen to be shaped like whales. As you’ll see after the break, the knives are made to look like five different types of whales (I think the humpback is my favorite!). They’re actually utility knives, which means that they can be used for just about any daily task ranging from opening letters to dicing up some apples.

Kujira Whale Knives are hand forged Multi Purpose Utility knives that have a Virgin High Carbon White Steel #2 inner core with a “Kurouchi” Black Forged finish and handle. Famed for their playful and imaginative whale shaped handles and their durable edge retentive blades these unique knives are sure to be a conversation piece.

As reported previously, the Loch Ness Monster exists… and it was created by OTOTO Designs as a kitchen ladle. Now the company is bringing Nessie’s mother into the world – and she’s a colander. Dubbed “Mamma Nessie”, she’s unique as well as practical, putting her four stubby legs to use keeping the colander in an upright position while you cook.

Mamma Nessie won’t be released for a few weeks, but you can pre-order now in turquoise or green colors.

In many instances, cooking requires skill with a blade, so it makes perfect sense to me that this Princess Bride cutting board features two of the most skilled blades in the world.

I imagine someone impressively chopping things in the kitchen and then pausing dramatically to say “I am not left handed” before changing hands.

We’ve posted about the very cool laser engraved rolling pins made by Valek before, but it looks like she’s been working on her craft, because her new rolling pins are a lot more intricate. She even added little rolling pins for kids!
