The Star Wars Death Star Toaster may not be powerful enough to destroy Alderaan, but when it takes on bread products, they're toast.

The geeky kitchen appliance sold by UK retailer The Fowndry is based on Darth Vader's ride and officially licensed from Lucasfilm. It features two slots that sear the Star Wars logo into bread products, as well as reheat and defrost settings, an adjustable thermostat, and a removable crumb tray.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to start heating things up in the kitchen right away. The appliance is currently only available for pre-order for £49.99 (around $67) and is expected to ship in late September.
