R2-D2 is a pretty industrious and clever little robot in the Star Wars movies but did you know he was also capable of accurately measuring out your milk for that curry recipe? Well, turns out he is.
With this Star Wars R2D2 measuring cup set, you basically get a little scaled down model of R2-D2 which can be broken into multiple smaller cups and jugs that you can then use for measuring out ingredients or even eating them. Specifically he can turn into a ¼, 1/3, ½ and 1 cup measure while the arms detach and become nested measuring spoons.
The dome is ½ cup and shaped perfectly like a bowl so there’s also no reason that you can’t eat your cereal out of it in the morning. Only it feels a little like you’re Hannibal Lecter eating brains when you do that. Robots have brains right?
For any Star Wars nuts this is an awesome little gimmick that’s sure to be a talking point for guests. It also holds nuts so there’s that too. But don’t count on it to make homemade tacos. You’ll need a different kind of machine for that.
The rest of the time when you’re dismantling your little robot-buddy you’ll feel more like Jawa repairing the droids you find. Utini!
