Topic: Zojirushi (3 msgs / 57 lines)
1) From: MSMB
After the discussion of hot water kettles here I decided to look for a
zojirushi and started to do some looking at different sites.  I then took a
break and as I was heading off to the supermarket stopped by my local
Habitat and lo and behold there was a Zojirushi model CWLC-B22.  The
exterior was a little dirty but the interior seems to be in excellent
condition.  
Only thing is that it did not come with an electrical cord (which was why
they only charged me $1).  I raced to Lowes to look for one and they do not
carry that type.  It has the two round prongs and they are a little further
apart than any of the other appliances I have which use that style plug.  It
is 120 V and draws 735 W so it does not seem to me too exotic.  Does anyone
know where I can get a plug like that?  Is there anything special about that
kind of plug, or can I just cut the end off a normal electrical cord and
wrap and tape it directly onto the prongs coming out of the kettle?  I at
least want to see if the kettle is working before I invest any money in the
purchase of a new chord.

I usually have a cord with alligator clips around for exactly these problems.
You can buy spares on the Zojirushi web site, the prices were 
reasonable and they showed up only a few days later.

Try an appliance repair facility- maybe even a Sears, Roebuck appliance
shop. It's not fancy or very heavy, 120v at about 6 1/8 amperes. They should
have electrical supply sources that have the exact connector you need.
I know what I would do, but I couldn't recommend  my solution to others.
