This appliance has a short supply cord to reduce the risk resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a long cord. Longer extension cords are available and
may be used if care is exercised in their use. If a longer extension cord is used,
the marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great
as the electrical rating of the appliance. The cord should be arranged so that it will not
drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or
tripped over unintentionally.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is
wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fully fit into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
