Star Wars Cookware is Here to Make Your Kitchen One with the Force
These collections are definitely providing A New Hope for the future of cooking.
With the impending release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the film that will cap off the current Star Wars trilogy, two cookware brands are jumping on the bandwagon (er, spaceship).
Williams Sonoma bringing your Instant Pot dreams to life with a Star Wars collection of the infamous pressure cooker. There are five options, the largest being Chewbacca at eight quarts and the smallest being the adorable BB-8 at just three quarts. Those two are priced at $119.95 and $79.95, respectively. The other three Instant Pots, which each hold six quarts, are selling at $99.95 and feature either a stormtrooper, R2-D2, or Darth Vader.
If you're not already sold on the brilliance of Instant Pots, know that they can act as a slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, and sauté pan (plus much more), all while cooking at double or triple the speed of standard appliances. Luke, Han, and Leia can travel at the speed of light—now your food can cook that fast, too.
Le Creuset, on the other hand, designed a limited-edition collection of elegant dutch ovens and trivets. Darth Vader is truly larger than life, so it's only fitting that the $395, five-and-a-half-quart dutch oven has his iconic helmet and mask on the lid. Vader will just love helping you roast a full chicken or slow cook a giant batch of chili!
Everyone's favorite droids—R2-D2, C-3PO, and BB-8—grace the outsides of the $30 mini cocottes. These may be small, but they're perfect for apps and one-serving desserts. No matter what they say, these are the droids you're looking for.
The Le Creuset galaxy also includes one Death Star and one Millennium Falcon trivet, each for $20, plus a $25 Porg Pie Bird to keep your pies perfect. You absolutely need this adorable wide-eyed creature in your kitchen. Lastly, this collection has a five-quart cast-iron roasting dish—complete with Han Solo's carbonite-suspended figure on top. Jabba the Hut's favorite decoration can now be yours for $450. Plus, you don't even need to dress as a bounty hunter and sneak into Jabba's castle to steal it. Win-win!
In addition to the Instant Pots and the Le Creuset collection, Williams Sonoma also sells stroomtrooper toasters, Millennium Falcon waffle makers, and Death Star ice molds. Because, as Yoda says, do or do not—there is no try. When you make your kitchen Star Wars-themed, you don't just try. You do.
Whether you're an apprentice, master, or lord, you need Star Wars cookware in your life. The stories may be from a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, but they can also be right now, in your kitchen.
Happy cooking, and, of course, may the force be with you.
