Star Wars Cookware Featuring All Your Favorite Characters Is Dropping Soon

Le Creuset has been a household name in cookware for nearly one hundred years, crafting cast-iron French Ovens, roasters, and cocette-cooked meals for kings and commoners alike. Now, the company has partnered up with another prolific brand that has ingrained itself in humanity’s rich narrative, a brand that’s been around a long time ago… in a galaxy far, far away.

On November 1, Le Creuset will be launching an exclusive Star Wars line of cookware. If you’re a fan of the ample cinematic history behind the sensational space opera, you better mark your calendars.

The set will be available at Lecreuset.com/Starwars as well as Le Creuset Singature Boutiques, Outlet Stores, and Willliams Sonoma locations beginning Nov. 1. The Le Creuset x Star Wars line will include a Han Solo Carbonite Roaster, Tatooine Round Dutch OvenDarth Vader Round Dutch Oven, R2-D2 Mini Cocotte, C-3P0 Mini Cocotte, BB-8 Mini Cocotte, Death Star Trivet, Millennium Falcon Trivet, and a Porg Pie Bird.

At the forefront, an incredibly exclusive pièce de résistance of the set is the Tatooine Round Dutch Oven an item in which only 13 exist in the world. Each will be hand-painted in Le Creuset’s French l’Atelier to reflect the aesthetic of the desert planet that embraces two suns.

Man, as cool as the Han Solo roaster is…  I need to cop this Tatooine Dutch Oven. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime work of art.

This Cookware Kickstarter Shattered Their Goal In Less Than 24 Hours

A couple years ago, a small company launched a knife on Kickstarter that did gangbusters on the crowdfunding site. At the end of their initial campaign, they raised more than $1 million in funding.

Now, Misen is launching an entire cookware set, made to the standards of their vastly popular knife. This premium cookware, however, actually costs less than typical retailers. If you’re a broke college cook thirsty to get that culinary practice in, pull up a chair.

The new set includes a saucier, a skillet, a saute pan, and a stockpot. There are three sets, available depending on how much you back the Starter Set, the Essentials Set, and the Complete Set.

At time of publication, with 35 days left, Misen has already raised more than $450,000, effectively shattering their initial goal of $40,000. Wonder how much they’ll rake in at the end of this campaign?

If you’re looking for a new set of kitchen tools and you’d like to back Misen Cookware, be sure to check out their Kickstarter.
