Okay, I need a US/UK "translation" please!

In kitchen counter top terms, what is a "receptacle"?

I think of a receptacle as a type of container or tub.

It's the thing on the wall that you plug stuff into.

Wall socket, duplex receptacle, electrical outlet = all the same thing.

I feel bad now! Poor MrsMustang is looking for sound advice on her new crockpot purchase!

Mine has a 1metre cord. (About 39 inches) And it's a DeLonghi. (But I didn't buy it - I swapped it for a bread maker I wasn't using).

None of which is getting MrsM any further forward of course....

I'm no help--I have an older Rival slow cooker, and a Westbend slow cooker, and two roasters (tabletop ovens). And a couple of other slow cookers that I used to use when washing mohair or merino fleece.

Good idea re: the power bar, if I can find a place to put it when not in use. I don't like anything to live on the counters (grew up in a house with too much stuff on the counters).

Mine is a permanent fixture because of what's plugged into it. It hides behind the coffeemaker.

Well, seeing as MrsM has clearly given up in disgust, I can say that I have many, many wall sockets in my kitchen. This is the one good thing my useless landlord provided in my crappy flat. And since I love to cook, it's jolly useful.

Unfortunately, I can't make the kitchen big enough for a food processor, which is quite tragic - since I have plenty sockets to plug one into!
