I have this as my outlet:
http://www.lowes.com/pd_71247-334-38...sales_dollar|1

I think I am going to need to buy a different outlet to plug my kettles into because I can't seem to find a plug that will fit it. I think I could use this if I had to but the wires are not marked as to which is ground and hot:
http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?...llow&cId=PDIO1

Any suggestions?

I don't know why I can't link the pages. Let me see if I can find them somewhere else

For the NEMA 10-30 receptacle you linked to, you should use the "L" shaped slot for ground.

You can test with multi-meter to see which wire on that cable is connected to the "L" pin on the plug. It's probably the center one, but use a meter to check.

by the way, the links work fine if you cut and paste them.
