For Christmas my mother=in=law asked for something that she reffered to as a striker, a rod that you can plug into an electric outlet. Then you stick it into a cup of water and it boils very quickly. I've searched for this item and I can't find it, I think it may have another name. Please tell me if you have heard of such a thing and what they are really called. Thank You!
