Darth Vader Stovetop Kettle

I have you now.

But I digress.

From the website:

In space, no one can hear you steam, which is a shame because the superbly menacing Darth Vader Kettle has a whistle that could awaken The Force.

Fancy a fragrant cup of Darthjeeling or a nice Hoth mug of java?

Then let the Dark Lord of the Sith lend a heat-resistant gloved hand.

Styled to resemble the silhouette of Vader's iconic shiny armored bonce (albeit with a Lightsaber welded to it), this officially-licensed high-quality stainless steel stovetop kettle will have 1.7L of water boiling with barely suppressed rage faster than you can say "the brew is strong with this one."

And since DV's aforementioned saber functions as the handle, you can make the obligatory vwauu-wauuming noises as you safely lift kettle to cup.
