Can the force help you with your cooking? Is this a question we should be asking in the Star Wars lore? Well, maybe not. But it sure seems like it thanks to these Star Wars Instant Pots by Williams Sonoma.
There are five options to choose from, each representing a well known Star Wars character; R2-D2, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, BB-8, and Chewbacca. Thankfully, it won't turn your food to the dark side, nor will it make sounds or come with theme songs, as the instant pot offers seven functions that would make you believe that the force is helping you with your cooking. These functions include; pressure cooking, slow cooking, rice cooking, steaming, sauteing, yoghurt making, and a warming option.
If instant pots aren't your thing, you also have the option to get Star Wars toasters, a Millenium Falcon waffle maker and a R2-D2 popcorn maker. The site also offers other itmes such as moulds, aprons, and even cookie cutters.
Of course, these instant pots and other cooking wares are far from affordable, and neither are they available in Malaysia. The price ranges from $79.95 (~MYR333) for BB-8 to $119.95 (~MYR500) for Chewbacca. The toasters and waffle makers cost $49.95 (~MYR208) and the popcorn maker at $99.95 (~MYR418).
This isn't the first time Williams Sonoma has worked with big brands; they also have products for Frozen, Harry Potter and even the Grinch. Although none of them actual tech cooking wares and mostly on moulds, cups, containers and even aprons. Be sure to check out their website to see their full Star Wars collection and maybe rejoice over the fact that you won't find yourself overspending on these lovely items.
