That’s no moon. That’s the Star Wars Death Star Kitchen Timer, and it’s ready to unleash its planet-destroying power in your kitchen.
Just rotate the top hemisphere to the required time to start the countdown (up to 60 minutes), and when the timer reaches zero, the planet with the rebel base goes BOOM!
Oh, wait. That’s not quite right. When the timer reaches zero, it flashes the super-cannon LED light and plays the associated sound effect. Not as dramatic as a planet blowing up, but much safer for working in the kitchen.
