Boba Fett KitchenAid mixer, for a bounty of baked goods

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the kitchen, a rogue KitchenAid mixer gets a Boba Fett paint job, making it perhaps the most dangerous mixer in the universe.

Cookie dough had better watch out. Boba Fett is coming. tommyfilth

Not a long time ago, in a kitchen far, far away, there sits a KitchenAid mixer, the likes of which the galaxy has never seen. DeviantArtist tommyfilth perfectly melded the look of "Star Wars" bounty hunter Boba Fett with a kitchen appliance normally associated with Food Network shows rather than sci-fi.

We know what bad "Star Wars" kitchen appliances look like (hello, Nestle coffee maker). Leave it up to an independent artist to get it right. I would put tommyfilth's Boba Fett mixer in my kitchen in a heartbeat. It shows that "Star Wars" cooking implements can really work.

There's a little story behind this impressive creation. Tommyfilth asked his wife to get him a broken KitchenAid mixer on eBay for Christmas. He wanted to refurbish it himself. Once he had it apart, inspiration struck as to how to approach a new paint job for the machine. A Boba Fett mixer was born.

The mixer is painted with spray paint from the home improvement store and is sealed with engine enamel to hold up to the rigors of mixing pound cake and stirring cookie dough. Just don't let it get too close to your Darth Vader toaster. Those two can't be trusted together.
