Astromech R2-D2 isn't just a metal sidekick who can rescue you from being crushed by a trash compactor or send you encrypted messages from a princess in trouble. The plucky "Star Wars" droid is now extremely helpful in the kitchen.

This R2-D2 measuring cups set separates into four measuring cups of one, one-half, one-third, and one-quarter cups. The detachable utility arms divide into one teaspoon, a half teaspoon, a quarter teaspoon, and a third tablespoon (yes, that's correct). R2-D2's dome is both a half cup and one tablespoon.

"This set of R2-D2 Measuring Cups disassembles into four measuring cups plus four measuring spoons and reassembles in a snap (fortunately, it's not as complicated as C-3PO)," ThinkGeek described online. "Each has its measurement written inside so you can't forget what they are and handles on the back that don't distract from R2-D2's aesthetic. The only problem we can foresee with these is that if you show somebody else your R2-D2 Measuring Cups, you may have to install a restraining bolt to keep them from wandering off."

Officially licensed by Lucasfilm and created exclusively at ThinkGeek, the R2-D2 measuring cup set is 6.5 inches tall, 5 inches wide, and 3.75 inches deep. It's made of food-grade ABS plastic and is BPA-free.

The set is not microwave or dishwasher safer, so you'll have to wash with care just like you would with R2-D2 himself.
