The most baffling gift I ever got was a roaster oven. I know you've seen them at places like Wal-Mart. They're essentially countertop roasting ovens, which might come in handy in a vacation house or when the oven's crowded.
The silly thing is, I was headed off to college. A mini microwave or fridge would have been nice, if prohibited by dorm rules, but a roaster oven?
Hmmm ... . What was she thinking? LOL!!
I had to leave it at home, of course, and I don't think I ever actually used it for any purpose whatever.
