I bought one fryer through Walmart a 4 quart with a magnetic plug. Blew out several outlset in my home after a few months. Threw it out, got another that broke down in less than one month with a magnetic plug. Yes, my home was serviced in-between units. Magnetic plugs are a disastor waiting to happen. Walmart, and other stores, should be responsible for thesethings because it costs landlords way to much money. They fix one disastor, the person buys a new fryer, another disastor happens.
