Star Wars day is approaching us with May 4th (pronounced May the Fourth) just around the corner. Have you prepared yourself on how to celebrate yet another momentous day? Start your May 4th -- or any day -- off right with a breakfast worthy of a Hutt using these kitchen gadgets.

Every Padawan needs a well-balanced breakfast, and what's more traditional than a stack of pancakes with your selection of fruity or sweet toppings to customize your meal? With these Star Wars-themed pancake molds, you can batter up your own Darth Vader or Yoda pancakes, depending on your side of the force. The Heroes & Villains set comes with three molds, with the last one resembling the stormtrooper… because every leader needs his minions.

How can these heroes and villains travel around the galaxy called your breakfast plate, you ask? Well, Jedi master chef, complete the Star Wars experience with the vehicle pancake molds for treats that look like the X-Wing Fighter, TIE Fighter, and Han Solo's classic Millennium Falcon. The molds are simple to use: Just pour the batter inside the shape on a preheated non-stick griddle. When one side has cooked, use the handle to remove the mold and flip. No, not with that old plastic stick. A meal this grand deserves the R2D2 spatula treatment.

Priced at $15, the R2D2 spatula is the perfect final accessory to this galactic breakfast because everyone knows droids make the best pancakes. It's made with a flexible nylon-silicon surface for heat-resistance, and it won't scratch your pans. If you prefer others, however, you also have options of Darth Vader and Stormtrooper designs. All three are dishwasher safe so cleaning after this much fun can be the last thing on your mind.

The Heroes & Villains mold is available at Williams-Sonoma for $20, and the Vehicles are currently on sale at $10 a set. Williams-Sonoma also has an entire line of Star Wars cookware so you can extend your taste buds to more than just breakfast time. They'll be the most epic eats you can get out of your own kitchen.

However you spend the rest of Star Wars day, you know we'll always say: May the Fourth be with you.
