The new "break-away" power cord is held to the deep fryer by a magnet. It operates safely and effectively when it is placed on a counter near an electrical outlet. However, if someone pulls on the cord, it will quickly and smoothly break away from the deep fryer, preventing tipover. This will help prevent the terrible scald burns.
interesting concept, i wonder about this 'magnetic' connections ability to ampacity? Or it's exposure via disconnection? is this used elsewhere?
