Cooking Tools

batman cookie cutter

Uh…some assembly is required. Fortunately, you can get cutters in sizes as big as 6.5-inches so you don’t have to make a whole bunch of them.

Plus, the Batman symbol on the version pictured above is upside down! That makes it a collector’s item. Better not eat it.

Special occasions call for special cutlery—and it doesn’t get more elegant than this lightsaber set.

Then you’re all like: “Would you like some freshly grated parmesan?”

And your (very impressed) guest is all like: “Yes I would!”

And that’s when you bust out the gem pictured after the break…

Anthony Bourdain recently partnered up with Balvenie US to create Raw Craft, a web series that focuses on talented artists who specialize in high quality, handcrafted products. For the fourth episode, Anthony visited Olympia, Washington to hang out with master bladesmith Bob Kramer and watch as he crafted a kitchen knife from a melted meteorite.

This compact charcoal grill cube is small enough to use just about anywhere. It measures 6.5 x 6.5 x 5.1 and comes with detachable parts for grilling, small spit roasting, or even kettle boiling.

I wonder if I can put one on my desk for some BBQ and browsing without burning my house down.

I’d love to tell you that I didn’t shout “TAKE ALL MY MONEY” when I saw all of this Star Wars: The Force Awakens kitchenware, but I can’t. Because I did. From the BB-8 cereal bowls to the juice glasses that remind me of the ones you used to get at McDonalds and Burger King, to the OMG adorable baking set, it’s all just…perfect.

I defy you to look at the pictures after the break and not want something.

Hard-boiled eggs are tasty, but they can look kind of…boring, so why not squish them into a Star Wars shape? It seems like the logical thing to do.

These Star Wars egg shapers let you make your own R2, Threepio, Stormtrooper, or Darth Vader eggs. Just boil and peel the egg, pop it in the mold and squish! Use the Force to crush Vader once and for all!

Inspired by a question posed by his wife, expert woodworker and engineer Matthias Wandel created a clever cake knife to cut hexagonal shapes.

“This project started when Rachel said “Now I have to cut the cake into squares or triangles”. My immediate thought was “why not cut it into circles, or hexagons?”. This got me thinking about a good method of cutting a cake into a hexagon honeycomb pattern.

The easiest I figured, was to make a knife that snakes through the honeycomb pattern …Testing the knife by pressing it down on some pine. I had actually shaped the handle to have a slight curve on the bottom of it so that the knife can be rocked back and forth a bit for cases where it needs to slice through some tough cake or pizza bottom. It left a nice indentation in the pine. so I’m confident that it can slice any cake.”

Check out more photos and a video of the hexagon cake knife after the break.

If the Merc with a Mouth had a thing for chocolate instead of tacos or pancakes, then he’d probably love this Marvel Deadpool Silicone Tray. You can use the tray to make chocolate or gelatin treats and ice cubes that look like Deadpool’s lovely face (try not to think about old avocados having sex).

It may be designed as a gelatin mold, but if someone doesn’t use this Captain America Shield Mold to make a 10-inch ice shield, I will be sorely disappointed. Make some Cap shield ice, put it in a big bowl of blue punch and that’s a party right there.

I mean, you can make a Jell-O shield too. Heck, make a chocolate one! Make all sorts of things. Just don’t use it in the oven because you don’t need melted plastic everywhere.

Today in “I have no idea why these exist, but I have to show you”, I present these Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman spatulas. They won’t help you leap tall buildings or transform into an Amazonian princess, but you can use the Trinity to make eggs. Go you!
