Baking Star Wars fans, you’re in for a sweet treat today. The people at ThinkGeek have an array of Star Wars trinkets to geek out over. However, if you are in need of some rebel help in the kitchen, this might be the droid you are looking for.
This R2-D2 measuring cup set is a 6-inch replica of the adventurous droid from the Star Wars series. The figurine set is made up of 4 measuring cups that snap together to form the center cylinder, and 4 measuring spoons stored as the side leg compartments on the base. The main body cylinder sits on the base, while also holding the side measuring spoons in place. R2-D2 can be easily maneuvered around, while remaining intact, if handled by the base.
Each cup and spoon is clearly marked with the measuring size on the inside. Although, my one minor criticism is there is no dedicated measuring spoon for a tablespoon, a measurement I tend to use a lot when baking cookies. However, to make up for this, there is a tablespoon indicator line in the 1/2 cup dome head. This is understandable; a dedicate tablespoon probably would not have worked with the design constraints.
Overall, it is pretty clever how ThinkGeek incorporated a 8-piece cup set while maintain an aesthetically pleasing R2-D2 design. I just love how this R2 looks hanging out displayed on my kitchen counter.
Need more convincing? Here’s the measuring cup set in action.
