Cooking Tools


Your Mom probably warned you not to play with knives, but artist Li Hongbo chose to play with them just the same and created some beautiful artwork in the process. Images are cut from the knives of the blades to leave a negative space in the metal with images of animals like frogs, bears, and human skeletons. It’s currently part of an art show called Contemporary by Angela Li. The artist says it’s to serve as a warning that humans are destroying ourselves and our world through poor treatment of animals.

These gingerbread cookie cutters are way more exciting than the standard ones with the little girl and boy. Now you can have Darth Vader, Chewbacca, C-3PO, Boba Fett, Yoda and a Stormtrooper as tasty gingerbread treats. Just think how cool these guys will look running around the yard of your gingerbread house. Each measures 4″ tall x 3 1/4″ wide and is an officially licensed Star Wars product.

When the R2-D2 Measuring cup set came out, I thought it was cute and I love R2, but I’ve always been a fan of black R2 units and black goes way better with my kitchen.

Luckily, ThinkGeek has this exclusive Star Wars R2-Q5 Measuring Cup Set. The body is built from 4 measuring cups and the utility arms detach into measuring spoons. The dome can measure out both a 1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon.

I think my kitchen is going to get some upgrades this holiday.

What started as an idea in 2007 and became a NEED for the internet is now very, very close to becoming a reality thanks to a Kickstarter project.

The Keyboard Waffle Iron.

Designer Chris Dimino needs $50,000 to make his Keyboard Waffle Iron Kickstater a success, but with an idea this good and rewards this great, I think it’s doable.

Rewards range from a Pumpkin Spice Waffle recipe at the $5 level to an office brunch (complete with Bloody Marys and Mimosas) at the 10K level. There are also limited edition waffle irons, cooking lessons and other cool items throughout the reward tiers.

Personally, they had me at Keyboard Waffle Iron because GREAT BIG WAFFLES IN A STUPID SHAPE.

This glass cutting board features an image of Darth Vader on a lovely damask background. It’s available in either 8″ x 11.5″ or 11.25″ x 15.5″ sizes in a whole range of colors to match your kitchen, but it really feels like we should only be able to buy this in black, don’t you think?

Now you can turn the iconic Guy Fawkes mask from V For Vendatta into a tasty and slightly creepy treat. This silicone mold is 8″ long and is perfect for baking a cake or even molding chocolate. You could even freeze a giant ice cube that would look amazing floating in a bowl of punch.

See more pictures after the break, including versions with the Bat Signal and the Superman logo.

These little 3D dinosaur cakes look too cute to eat, but you’ll devour them anyway. They’re made with a 2-part silicone mold that will produce two each of a brontosaurus, tyrannosaurus and stegosaurus. Once they’re done baking, you just stick the two halves together and you’ve got an edible dinosaur treat.
