As parents, most of us spend an astronomical amount of time slaving over a hot stove. Dinner time can be a little chaotic, but it's all worth it to be able to sit down and share a meal with the family (or, it can be once the kids get past the fish stick throwing phase). Now, Le Creuset has decided to inject some fun back into our nightly cooking routine by releasing a line of Star Wars cookware. If you're a fan of the Sci-Fi franchise, then Christmas has come early.
This playful new range includes some of our best-loved characters, droids, scenes, and places that span across the decades of intergalactic travel. However, it comes with a price tag that might make your lightsaber quiver. The Han Solo Carbonite Signature Roaster comes in at a pretty $450, but it's worth every penny. Not only is it the brand's only roasting tin with a lid, but it depicts Han Solo when he got frozen in carbonite.
While that sort of purchase can definitely be considered an investment and not a necessity, the Droid Mini Cocottes might be a little more palatable.
If you're looking for the perfect serving dish to wow your nerdy guests, then look no further. These little pots are modeled after R2-D2, C-3P0, and BB-8. At $30 apiece, these are far more budget-friendly than the roasting dish, but they're also out of this world. The Millenium Falcon and Death Star Trivets might be our favorite item in the collection. Made of silicone, these handy little mats will protect your surfaces while also securing your reputation as the Jedi hostess with the mostess. Baking a pie for dinner? Finish it off with a Porg Pie Bird for $25.
With winter coming up, you may want to whip up a batch of stew or two. What better way to entice your family to the table than by using a limited edition Darth Vader Round Dutch Oven? If that doesn't tickle your fancy, then the pastel-colored Tatooine Round Dutch Oven might. The latter will set you back $900 though, so it's more of a collectors item than actual cookware.
