Sonic screwdrivers aren’t just for solving impossible galactic problems anymore; they’re for helping you make dinner. The geek-themed kitchen accessories trend has really taken off in the last three or so years – to the degree that it’s possible to makeover your kitchen from mini fridge to aprons with pop culture touches. Licensees seem to be sitting around conference room tables cooking up ways to put franchises in the kitchen, and someone at Underground Toys realized that sonic screwdrivers make the best possible handles.
They’ve come up with a whole Doctor Who cookware line featuring the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctor’s sonic, and while these sonics don’t light up or make the iconic noise, they’re still rather wonderful. You can choose from: cutlery, a vegetable peeler, a pizza cutter, and/or a scrub brush. All the tools have a plastic sonic screwdriver handle. Are they slightly tacky? Maaaybe. But, they’re tacky in the good way. Plus, using a sonic screwdriver would make washing dishes more fun.
If you decide you simply must have these Time Lord-approved tools, you can pre-order them at Entertainment Earth. The collection starts at $15.99, and the sonic-gadgets will ship in November. That means you can get them in plenty of time to host a Doctor Who themed party for the Christmas special. If you want to go all out, remember that TARDIS teapots and ice cube trays are available.
Do you think these Who kitchen accessories are creative or cheesy? Head to the comments and let us know whether you’ll be purchasing them.
