My fiancé is a huge Star Wars fan, so naturally the first off-registry gift we received was a set of Star Wars themed spatulas from Williams-Sonoma. I was initially skeptical of spatulas in the shape of Darth Vader and his stormtrooper minion, but to my surprise, these are actually excellent kitchen tools.Both spatulas are flexible enough to slide under thin pancakes, but rigid enough to use when flipping heavier items in a pan. They are safe with nonstick cookware, BPA-free, and safe to 400 degrees F.
Most importantly, they are fun to use in the kitchen. It's not often that a movie-themed product is so well-made, but I am quite pleased with this unasked-for gift. I'm also hoping it will encourage my fiancé to try cooking a little more often!
