May the Fourth Be With You: 5 Star Wars Kitchen Gadgets

A long time ago, a seemingly wise, old, green being of an unspecific species stole a human's lunch and asked, "how you get so big eating food of this kind?" So maybe his wiseness is questionable.  Also of questionable wiseness: purchasing any of the following Star Wars-themed kitchen wares to celebrate Star Wars Day, May 4th.

  1. R2-D2 Measuring Cups (pictured above) [via: ThinkGeek]

Jawas make a lifestyle out of deconstructing droids and they get zero to few cupcakes out of it. This should at last add some flavor to bland Tatooine days. At least utinni bit.

  1. Imperial Insignia Mug [via: Amazon]

If anyone needs a morning pick-me-up, it's an imperial storm trooper. They take some big public landspeeder to a grueling job where there's almost no upward mobility; the uniform have no flair; and their boss' boss' boss' boss can choke them with his fingers.

  1. Lightsaber Chopsticks [via: Amazon]

Unless your dinner is made out of Mandalorian Iron (sup, nerds?), these should slice right through it. Regardless, any vehicle that moves Ching-He Huang's GeneraL Tso's Chicken onto your tongue is probably a worthy investment.

  1. Death Star Bottle Opener [via Amazon]

Many Bothans died to bring you this fully operational battle station-like bottle opener so you can enjoy a root beer. Hope it's worth it.

  1. Carbonite Fridge [via: B3ta Board]

We have a bad feeling that this is Photoshopped, which would be too bad because you know your freezer is in great condition if the stuff inside is in perfect hibernation.
