It's never too late to make a design better

How many times have you needed to pull an electrical plug out of the wall, and you know that you're not supposed to yank it by the cord because doing that might damage the electrical connections, but you do it anyway because you just can't get a good grip on the plug head? (Or the plug head is wedged far out of reach, so you're forced to grab the closest bit of chord and tug?)

Behold.



We opened our new Breville toaster oven this evening (after a great Bed Bath & Beyond customer service experience), and discovered this innovative electrical plug design.

Kudos to Breville for considering even this mundane detail, which would have been so easy to overlook when they were focusing on the rest of the design!
