10 Geeky Accessories for Any Nerd’s Kitchen Slideshow

Cooking and nerding out are not mutually exclusive

10 Geeky Accessories for Any Nerd’s Kitchen

When you stop to think of the stereotypical geek, images of uber-nerds perpetuated by sitcoms (think: Family Matters’ Steve Urkel, Saved by the Bell’s Screech, and Big Bang Theory’s Sheldon Cooper) likely comes to mind first. Less likely to come to mind is anyone donning a chef’s apron and taking to the kitchen to prepare a dinner party.

Well, nerds, stand proud and stand tall because, truth be told, cooking and nerding out are not mutually exclusive — which is why the coming across a wide selection of nerd-tastic kitchen accessories made this not-so-humble nerd beyond giddy. Now you can have your cake (or, as it were, pie) and eat it too… on an appropriately themed pi plate, just one of the deliciously geeky accessories on our list.

Dr. Who Cutlery, Plates, and Spatula

Bow ties are cool. That’s true, according to the good Doctor. But even cooler than bow ties? This collection of accessories that would jazz up any Whovian gathering of comestibles. Cook up your meal using a bonafide Tardis spatula and serve on like-themed plateware, complete with utensils modeled after the 12th Doctor’s sonic screwdriver.

Pi Plates

Your guests will really appreciate how meta your geeky dinner party gets when you serve up a slice of pie on a pi plate. The math equation emblazoned on the center of the plate literally translates to say “I eight sum pi.” But don’t worry: if your guests don’t get it, it’s written on the bottom, too.
