Star Wars R2D2 Kitchen Timer adds another dimension to its capabilities
If there ever was a famous astromech droid that has saved the galaxy many times over, not to mention being able to avoid getting eaten, crushed, and recycled, or even grazed by a laser blaster, then it would be the one and only R2-D2. If it is not busy saving the life of a potential Jedi knight, perhaps it is being involved in making sure that your steak does not get overdone as it sizzles on top of the grill, thanks to it appearing in the form of the $19.99 Star Wars R2D2 Kitchen Timer.
Yes sir, this is no ordinary kitchen timer. The Star Wars R2D2 Kitchen Timer already comes with that kind of charm right out of the box, and thanks to some rubber on this astromech droid’s feet, it will stop him from marring your expensively assembled kitchen counter and other surfaces where you place him on. Using this puppy is a snap – all that you need to do is to rotate his head to 60 which will wind up the timing mechanism, where you set the time which you wish to count down. When the timer touches 0, the Star Wars R2-D2 Kitchen Timer will let loose and actual alarm bell for 5 seconds. It would’ve been nicer if his head would rotate and he lights up, followed by his traditional beeps and bloops though.
