Along time ago in a galaxy far, far away the Death Star Ice Ball was created.
That’s right, up next on our list of retro kitchen products we have another super cool Star Wars.
No, it’s not an icy meteor ball heading towards earth, it’s just one giant Death Star shaped ice cube.
This ice ball mould will turn your ice into the Death Star itself (or a tiny version of it) so you’d better watch your back next time you take a drink.

We’re heading into the DC universe with the next item on our next retro kitchen products list. If you’re a Batman fan and need a strong cup of coffee to get you going in the morning (because who doesn’t?), then this espresso maker needs to be on your wish list.
Not only does this espresso maker create a mean cup of coffee but it also looks so badass. The matte black colour of the coffee pot gives this kitchen product a super cool edge which is accentuated by the Batman-themed handle.
Finally, the eye is drawn to the splash of colour of the lid, in the form of the Batman logo, that sits in front of Batman’s mask. If you want to join Bruce Wayne in a good cup of espresso you can check out this coffee maker!

For all our Potter heads out there, this next item on our awesome list of retro kitchen products, is for you. We were first introduced to Skele-Gro in Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets as a means of re-growing bones.

This Skele-Gro bottle is an official replica product of the potion bottle seen in the second Harry Potter film and therefore looks just as it should, right down to the text on the bottle.
We’re moving to the Star Wars franchise for the next item on our retro kitchen products wish list. This toaster is the perfect kitchen appliance for any Sith lord in training, even with a simple slice of toast you can be reminded of the ways of the imperial forces.
This toaster, that is shaped like Darth Vader’s head, burns the Star Wars logo onto your toast which may be for you if you don’t mind your toast a little on the dark side.
