Star Wars Cooking Gear for a Star Wars BBQ!

Tell your friends about this! (Other social media links below the post!)


As Yoda would say “mmmmmm”!

After getting my R2D2 wastebasket, it seems like I’m on a Star Wars collectible marathon this week. There are so many cool items out lately.

The official Star Wars shop just unveiled a few new toys collectibles housewares today, just in time for the peak of barbecue season!

To be honest, the items all struck me as odd when I first saw them, but then I wondered why hasn’t anyone done this before!

Cool ideas to help you look your UberNerd best when serving friends and family (or just embarrassing said friends and family)! Once again UberNerdNation brings you collectibles you can pass off as necessities with the simple line “we needed a new one anyway!” If that doesn’t work, you can always use the old standby, “these are not the collectibles you’re looking for…” Don’t you love being an UberNerd?

First up are the Darth Vader Kitchen / BBQ Apron and the Princess Leia Bikini Kitchen / BBQ Apron. The site says both aprons are made from 100% polyester and measure about 29 inches. They are individually priced at around $25. I see the makings of a great family cookout!

“Honey, how’s the steak?”
“It’s a little Chewie!”

Get it? See they were eating a baby wook…forget it….that joke has a bad taste to it…

A standard oven mitt is so essential for cooking safety to prevent burns. (Please note: this UberNerdNation public service message should gratuitously be used if you find your Force powers are too weak to turn someone’s mind to your favor.)

A Space Slug Oven Mitt prevents burns and can help you protect your grill Empire! This item goes for about $20 and is made of a fire-retardant nomex (whatever that is it sounds safe) cotton blend and is about 12 inches in length.

This is sooooo much better than those cutesy teddy bear and holiday mitts you find in Walmart and the like.

The final new item they announced is something no one can deny every good cookout needs. An
Exclusive Lightsaber Bottle Opener. For about the same price as a mid-range bottle opener ($17), why wouldn’t you buy this? It measures approximately 5.5 inches long. The handle is made of sculpted resin, and the opener is made of stainless steel.

The only thing this is missing is the sound, (but with enough “Jawa Juice” I am sure every respectable Jedi at the table can provide that).

Ok so Apron, Oven Mitt, Bottle Opener, but what about the pepper! You gotta have the pepper! No problem.

This Star Wars R2-D2 Pepper Mill is a bit costly at around $25 but it’s freakin’ R2!

Twist his dome head and you can get all the pepper you need, just be gentle, and for the love of Jabba, don’t remove the restraining bolt!

The head pops off so you can refill it until as many times as you like.

You will have to actually get up and buy some pepper though. Bummer right? I’d recommend sticking to powder so you don’t break this with actual seeds.

Too bad they don’t have an Red R4 Unit Ocean Salt Grinder, but one can dream. You’ll just have to buy a second R2D2 for salt, but at $25 a droid, you have to really want it.

Force powers won’t save you if you can’t pay the bills.

The last item I’ll highlight is not new, but if you are going to cook, why not get Wookiee Cookies: A Star Wars Cookbook. I checked it out on Amazon and it had about 40 ratings with 4.5 out of 5 stars. You can click the link above to read the reviews. (I also found some other great Science Fiction and Fantasy themed cookbooks below).

Not sure how I feel about this one, but it might get others involved. You never know…cooking Star Wars themed recipes may bring a new generation to the Force (or the Dark side – sorry some people are just plain evil)!

“Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy kitchen as father and son?”
