Looking for a Christmas gift for the Star Wars fan in your life? Is that person you? Might we recommend this Star Wars and Le Creuset collaboration, which features everything from a Han Solo roasting dish to a Death Star trivet. We want it all.
The food in Star Wars isn’t always the most appetising.
Jabba the Hutt memorably ate that frog in Return of the Jedi, and of course there was the little pot of bread that Rey managed to rehydrate from a packet of gruel she picked up in return for trading in some junk metal in The Force Awakens. And who could forget all the milk – both blue and green – that Luke chugs down at every opportunity in both A New Hope and The Last Jedi.
What we’re saying is that space food sometimes looks like it should be left in a galaxy far, far away. This capsule collection of Star Wars-themed pots and pans from Le Creuset, on the other hand? Well, the force is definitely with this one.
Just look at this roasting pan, featuring Han Solo trapped in the carbonite. Or there’s the little trio of tiny Le Creuset signature pots designed to resemble the best droids in the galaxy: R2-D2, BB-8 and C-3PO.
If you’re a tea drinker, you’ll love resting a piping hot teapot on a trivet in the shape of a Death Star or the Millenium Falcon – literally, choose your fighter. And there’s one particularly beautiful hand-painted pot in ombre pink and blue featuring the two suns of the planet Tatooine. “Our Dutch oven promises an end result that’s anything but dry,” the Le Creuset website reads. “Unlike the sun-scorched lands of Tatooine.”
The collaboration launches in the US only at Le Creuset and Williams Sonoma stores on 1 November, which means the collection will be dominating Christmas wishlists. Some of the items – like that hand-painted pot, or the Han Solo roasting dish – come with big, Death Star-sized price tags. The Han Solo roaster will set you back $450, while the Tatooine pot is $900. The trivets are only $20, though, and the tiny pots are $30 each.
Le Creuset’s limited edition movie collaboration are always showstopping. The heritage cookware brand has created Mickey Mouse-shaped pots and pans, as well as a beautifully designed range to celebrate the release of Beauty & the Beast in 2017.
That collection featured two soup pots, one in the exact shade of yellow as Belle’s iconic ballgown and one in the blue of the Beast’s brocade jacket. Both styles sold-out when they were released in 2017, so you can guarantee that the Star Wars range will provoke a similar reaction. Get in quick, because they’ll be gone in less than 12 parsecs.
