Cookin' With R2

Entertainment Events Geek Culture


The latest Star Wars exclusive from ThinkGeek is the perfect housewarming gift for the geeks in your life: the R2-D2 Measuring Cup set.

Your favorite droid now disassembles into practically all the measuring cups and spoons a Padawan chef could possibly need. His dome is 1/2 cup, and his cylindrical body splits into 1/3, 1/4 and one full cups. Similarly, his stubby little legs contain 1/2, 1/3 and one full teaspoons. (Okay, technically there are two teaspoons, though one is labelled 1/3 tablespoon – on account of those ThinkGeek folks are clever!)

Best of all, each of these can be easily, quickly reassembled into a free-standing base to once again become the tiny, discreet R2 unit that your kitchen secretly yearns for. It’s constructed of BPA-free, food-grade plastic, but it’s not safe for the dishwasher or microwave use. Just like real astromechs.

The Star Wars R2-D2 Measuring Cup set is regularly $19.99, but it’s currently only $15.99 as part of ThinkGeek’s Star Wars Day sale. All their other Star Wars loot is also currently 20% off, so act fast!
