Are the items supposed to be plug in types? You were able to mention something about, "Those cords being discontinued" which seem to imply an interface between the machine and the wall socket, in other words the cord plugs into the machine as well as being plugged into the wall. Most stuff with an element/s are already hard wired into the machine, while some element/s machines need also to be hard wired at the power source. Things like that should be made apparent at any sales of electrical appliances.

i think all stoves in the states have had a separate cord for many years. some safety issue i think.
i bought a new stove last year and had to buy the cord separate. it was like 20 bucks. the sales guy said it has been that way for some time.
