Your choice in measuring cups says a lot about you. Are you a traditional R2-D2 person? An untraditional R2-Q5 person? Maybe you lean towards the Dark Side when it comes to measuring out flour. But what if you’re new to the Star Wars universe and prefer BB-8? Well, ThinkGeek finally has you covered with this set.
What? You say you aren’t a Star Wars person in the kitchen? Well, you could
handle your recipes with cats and unicorns—but it is highly unorthodox. Some say there are people out there that use bland measuring cups, but I think that might be just a myth created to scare children.

When I first saw this teapot, I thought about how it would look if it was inserted into the Star Wars films. Then I laughed and laughed—especially at the part where Alderaan is soaked in an ocean of Early Grey.
Christian Rivera, an art director with Youpanqui BBDO in Lima, Peru, came up with this eye-catching concept for a collection of Star Wars-themed cups, titled “Drink the Force.” The design features popular LEGO minifig Star Wars heroes and villains wielding lightsabers that, from the right perspective, become the cup’s straw.
It’s a clever idea that, quite frankly, I’m surprised McDonald’s hasn’t already done. Check out an additional example below. [click to continue…]
The Star Wars Rogue One Death Star Popcorn Maker is fully operational and ready to prepare popcorn for movie night. The design is actually kind of brilliant—the top doubles as a serving bowl.
Lovers of whiskey and Star Wars collectibles, I’ve got something pretty awesome for you. Two somethings actually.
Based on original helmet molds made in 1976 by industrial designer Andrew Ainsworth, the Stormtrooper decanter holds 750ml of your drink of choice and is made of high-quality Super Flint Glass. The shot glass holds a generous 150ml (I like these guys’ idea of a “shot”), and both of them would look amazing on any bar. Plus, you’re drinking from a real piece of Star Wars history.
That decanter is seriously wizard. Plus, booze. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
This Star Wars heat-changing mug takes the Falcon to lightspeed when filled with hot coffee. That’s pretty much how I feel after my first cup. The cup below features the Death Star blowing up Alderaan, which is pretty much how I feel after the caffeine crash. [click to continue…]
No I am not exaggerating. Shut up. No you shut up. Stop. I’m serious—an R2-D2 coffee press is the most perfect product in history. It just makes too much sense.
Let R2 help you navigate your mornings more successfully with this Star Wars R2-D2 Coffee Press. He’s happy to help a human in need. Put your grounds and boiling water in his glass body, brew for a few minutes, plunge, and he’ll serve up 32 oz. of piping hot coffee. For folks playing along at home, that’s 4 cups, so even if your motivator is so bad that the Jawas put you back on the scrap heap, he can still get you going.
The intro to Dexter would have been even better with this.

Some people look at a globe and think, “Yep, that’s what the world looks like, I guess.” Other people see a globe and see an opportunity to hide some booze. But Imgur user Sharkalligatorman saw more than any of us ever thought possible. He saw potential.
Sharkalligatorman found a reasonably affordable globe bar on Amazon and modified it into the Empire’s ultimate weapon. That is to say, he cut a big ol’ hole in the top and stuck a gray plastic spoon dish in the gap before painting the entire thing a lovely shade of military gray (or possibly ocean gray, it’s hard to tell the difference). Then he spent time painting the trenches, city, and a black interior complete with stenciled names of people involved in the iconic style of the Star Wars crawl. See the entire process in the gallery below. [click to continue…]
Darth Vader can whip up a soup like nobody’s business. He also makes this amazing pudding using 4 Hass avocados, 8 tablespoons of Hershey’s 100% cacao unsweetened cocoa, 8 tablespoons of maple syrup, 1 cup of almond milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Avocado pudding! Who knew?
At any rate, this Lightsaber Immersion Blender is his secret weapon in the kitchen. It features a 120 V/300 W motor and variable speeds for $50.
