    So here are Star Wars gadgets for the kitchen and the backyard BBQ!

    Star Wars: BBQ Tongs: Vader's Lightsaber.  Bring the Dark Side to your BBQ with Lord Vader’s very own BBQ tongs! Okay, they may not actually be Lord Vader's BBQ tongs.

Featuring metal tongs, a heatproof plastic handle and dark red storage case, there's even the classic lightsaber ‘vwww-ing!’ sound effects to add extra Star Wars fun to proceedings. A must-have not just for the millions of Star Wars fans out there but also for anyone who just wants to liven up their BBQ! Retail price around $40. Available in retailers such as: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, F.Y.E., Hastings, Hot Topic, and Thinkgeek.
