I do this almost every day: I plug the toaster in, use it, then unpug it. Does anyone else do this? I caught myself today and wondered why I do this. I thought it must be a fire hazard or something, but then I looked around. Virtually every outlet is in use 24/7! Are toaster inherently more volatile than lamps, TV's, etc? Maybe...maybe not, but I have a feeling that I'll keep unplugging the thing.
