or tripping over a long cord. extension cords may be used if care is exercised in
their use.
if an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the 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. if the appliance is of
the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord.
