Adorable R2-D2 Disassembles into Measuring Cup Set

R2-D2

Darth Vadar has already taken over kitchens with his evil (read: awesome) toaster, so it’s about time one of the good guys showed up, huh?

Created by Think Geek, these R2-D2 measuring cups are cleverly disguised as the Star Wars character when stacked. Once dissembled, the robot becomes a set of four cups and four measuring spoons fit for even the best of bakers. Little R2-D2 also solves potential kitchen clutter by packing eight useful tools into a compact, adorable droid.

Put one of these robot sets next to that Death Star cookie jar, and your kitchen will be filled with one helluva Force.

Pure Awesome: Japanese Dominos Releases R2-D2 Pizza Box

R2-Pizza box

The good news: Somewhere in Japan, Domino’s pizza has collaborated with Star Wars to market this crazy awesome pizza box, shaped like the 3D bust of everyone’s favorite character (after that Ewok that tried to wake up its dead friend, but really, that’s just a pity vote), R2-D2.

The bad news: the closest thing I can find to an explanation is all in Japanese. From the visual context, I believe we can safely assume that Star Wars is set in space, and there are people. What that has to do with movies or pizza, I’m not sure.

The point is this: Japan has an R2-D2 shaped pizza box. It’s 3D, it’s adorable, and its contents are delicious. Foodbeasts, enjoy.

Meet the ‘Candroid’ – Moving R2-D2 made of Canned Foods

If you’ve never heard of the annual San Francisco Canstruction competition… well, actually, then you’re probably in the majority. Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t missing out — because you are.

The event featured an actual moving R2-D2 “Candroid” made of tuna and corn. Pretty awesome, seeing as the last time we ever did something this cool with tuna and corn was… never.

The best part of this whole thing (aside from, you know, the charity portion where Canstruction donates all food used in the entered sculptures to local food banks) is that there were other entries, including a partially destroyed Death Star (stewed tomatoes, canned soup and tuna?)

You guys. Let’s overhaul that new Star Wars movie and make everything out of food.

R2-D2 Peppermill

I will never get tired of Star Wars-themed kitchenware. I admit, it’s a weakness of mine. I still pretend to use Jedi powers when I’m in front of an automatic door, but you didn’t need to know that. *waves hand* You will forget you read that just now.

Anyhow, you can have the likeness of everyone’s favorite cylindrical blue droid serve you up some freshly ground pepper by rotating that trademark blue dome of his with this awesome pepper mill. Standard pepper mill rules apply here, add in whole pepper corns, rotate mechanism, ground pepper falls out. Nothing complex or new, just a totally rad kitchen tool for Star Wars nerds. ($20 @ ThinkGeek)

R2-BQ: May The Good Eats Be With You

Built by the New Wookie Workshop‘s webmaster Philip Wise, we’re looking at a R2-D2 smoker built from an old 55 gallon drum. Star Wars products always have a special place in my heart, and when that product has the ability to make a rack of ribs taste like heaven, I’ve been won over.

Extreme attention to detail and a fabulous paint job all around, the unit goes almost undistinguishable as a smoker:
