The death star waffle maker is here – This may sound like a dream to Star Wars fans but it’s not! The Star Wars death star waffle maker is as real as it gets, although not as mind-blowing as you may anticipate it to be. But it’s still pretty incredible and worth it for every Star Wars lover.
It’s quite simply, just a whole lot of fun. The Star Wars death star waffle maker is pretty cool, and enough to attract not just Star Wars fans but anyone who’s big into merchandise. This is also one of those things that you don’t see come out for every TV show or movie out there. It’s a pretty unique and innovative idea and definitely, a must-have for many.
The waffle maker is not the easiest to get your hands on. ThinkGeek is one of the only websites that have had it on there for long enough. You never know when it’s going to go out, so if you’re thinking about getting one for yourself or a friend, the time is now. Don’t wait at all! Spend a little bit of coin because you are going to love this thing until the end just because it’s a little something more than an ordinary waffle maker.
That being said, it is okay to be a tiny bit skeptical about the ability of the waffle maker. It does come in a well-packaged box, but that doesn’t help you decide if it’s actually going to make waffles. Which is why, here’s a short Star Wars death star waffle maker review!

You can get the Star Wars death star waffle maker from any platform that carries a large choice of Star Wars merchandise, like ThinkGeek. The waffle maker has gray plastic and metal plates inside, in the form of The Death Star. The Star Wars death star waffle maker has two indicator lights that light up red to let you know it’s on, and a green light that lights up during the time of cooking and turns off when your waffles are ready.
It also has an on-off switch, which I appreciate since not all small devices are able to turn off when not in use. The waffle maker comes with directions that well, could be improved. There are quite a few spelling errors in the brochure that a simple proofread could have corrected. But it is a waffle maker, not a book so can we focus on how it makes the waffles and not what stuff comes written with it.
The mystery of The Death Star was that it looked like one thing, but was technically, something completely different. It looked like a moon floating in outer space, but we know that it was actually a secret space station. Waffle makers are pretty similar as well. You look for dessert, something covered with strawberries, whipped cream, chocolate, icing sugar and syrup (well, maybe not all at once), but they are technically breakfast. Not a very healthy breakfast, but definitely worth every heart attack!
If you are willing to upgrade your kitchen, you need to make The Death Star explode with this great waffle maker. Plug it in, heat it up and pour the dough into the non-stick cooking hobs. In just a few minutes, you have golden, delicious waffles, good enough to destroy a planet. Well, a small one, at the least. And if one side is a little undercooked with bubbles, let it cook and if it is starting to go dark, simply turn it over. Pretty standard, just how you’ve always cooked a waffle in just about any waffle maker.
There is a concave plate composite with superb laser indentation on two plates so that they are protected. And both sides have pockets for your delicious toppings. Just keep in mind, if you are planning on using syrup, wait until the waffles are done and out, hot on a plate, ready to be served!
How It Works?
Overall, this waffle maker iron heats up quickly, cooks evenly and is easy to use. Be careful not to use too much batter – it will end up spilling onto the counter. A ladle-full is just the right amount, but you may need to experiment a bit to find what works for you.
In the directions, it suggests spraying the metal plates with cooking oil before pouring the batter. You should definitely do this. Not just for Star Wars death star waffle maker but anytime you cook waffles in any waffle maker. It makes the hot waffles so much easier to remove, although if it does get stuck, remove the waffle carefully so that you don’t damage the plates.
Since these are nonstick plates, you should avoid the use of metal utensils with the waffle maker to remove it. A robust rubber spatula did the trick just fine and keeps your waffle maker last longer. It uses a fraction of the fat compared to other waffle makers – you may need to spray onto the waffle maker plates more often to avoid sticking but overall, it does the job pretty well. A spray before each waffle helped a lot with this, so adjust as you go. Different batters behave differently. What works for one waffle, may not for the other.
Cleaning is easy. Give it a good wipe with a damp cloth. But be sure to get in all columns for a good clean.
So, would I recommend the Star Wars death star waffle maker? For Star Wars fans, and waffle lovers, absolutely. It is not perfect, the directions leave a lot to be desired and I liked it with its own tool for removing the waffles, but it works well and provides a consistent result. But it should be noted that this is not a fantastic waffle maker. It is just a novelty item that happens to be working well.
That being said, it’s a good little appliance to have in your kitchen to wow all your friends on your Star Wars movie night, and pretty much blow their minds away!
