Cooking Tools


Andrei Muntian of MTM Wood employed a carefully arranged series of maple and walnut strips to fashion a hypnotic optical illusion cutting board.

The functional work of art was created by mapping out the pattern as a model in SketchUp before beginning the process of cutting, planing and assembling the wooden components.

See how it comes together in the video below.

A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to bring a new product called “The Ultimate Cutting Board” into your kitchen. Rather than being a simple slab of wood to cut on, this handmade maple beauty adds a Swiss Army Knife quality with tools like a built-in citrus juicer, measuring cups, a grater and a storage drawer.

However, with all these bells and whistles you can expect to pay quite a bit more: $165 Canadian dollars (around $117 USD) to be exact. Despite this sticker shock, backers remain undeterred, as illustrated by the campaign completely destroying its goal.

Let’s be honest, the Death Star is silly—and ridiculously expensive.

Fortunately, we’ve found a more practical and economical use for the destructive power of this complete and operational battle station – a grill! That’s right, you can now cook your favorite meats on a barbecue shaped just like the Death Star. Whether you’re in the mood for some pork sausages or Ewok steak, this grill has you covered.

The Star Wars universe can be a rough place. It’s good to have some friends on your side. And by “friends” I mean cute cookies. Cute cookies make everything better.

In addition to the original series featuring Luke, Leia, Yoda, Chewie, C-3PO, and R2-D2, there are two cookie cutter packs available in the Star Wars Rebel Friends series: one that’s Hoth-themed and another that’s Endor-themed. See the latter below.

zombie baking cups

Zombie cupcakes or “Braincakes” are the perfect thing to munch on while waiting endlessly for:

1. The fate of your favorite Walking Dead characters
2. Your favorite Walking Dead characters to get back together already
3. Your favorite Walking Dead characters to realize that they can cover themselves with zombie guts and escape since they’ve done it before
4. The second half of the season to begin since the first half ended on a boring note

Why would you use other measuring cups when you know these Star Wars Death Star Measuring Cups exist?

Excluding the R2-D2 measuring cups of course.

The Death Star contains five pieces (1 tablespoon, 1/4 cup, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup, and 1 cup) and it easily closes up to become a battle station when not in use.

Plus, you can amuse yourself pointing at it and saying “That’s no measuring cup!”

star wars oven mitts

You know all of those cookies the Dark Side has? Here’s how they retrieve them from the oven. Darth Vader and Stormtrooper Silicone Oven Mitts.

You would think that some lowly Stormtroopers would be tasked with that responsibility but, apparently, the recipe is a Skywalker-family secret. Vader is super serious about it. He randomly pulls out batches to ensure quality and has been known to Force choke Stormtrooper bakers.

R2-D2 makes a muffin top look gooood.

This set of 4 R2-D2 Cupcake Molds is ready for your baking prowess. Just mix up some cake batter and pour it directly into our favorite little astromech’s body. Bake according to the instructions on whatever recipe you’re using. Once these come out of the oven and cool, you can decorate and serve these up right in the mold. We’ve used fondant in our photo to achieve R2’s iconic dome, but these would be a lot of fun if you let kids decorate them with frosting and candies. Freeform R2 units! Or go wild and fill them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and sprinkles.

jem cookie cutters

Whether you’re excited about the upcoming Jem movie, or you’re an old-school Jem and the Holograms fan from back in the day, you should probably plan a Jem-themed party sometime in the future (because it would be awesome). And what’s a party without themed cookies?

Thanks to Sweet Prints, Inc., you can make Jem cookies with these cookie cutters. You can buy single cutters for Jem, Aja, Kimber, Shana, and Raya or you can get all five in a set.

I’d have to imagine the best part of making these cookies has to be the decorating. Sprinkles will fly!
