I had purchased a replacement cord from the biggest online retailer only to get it and find that it became scorching hot during use—definitely not safe. I was happy to find this replacement which appears to be OEM. It arrive quickly, works great and exhibits no overheating issue. I have a few Faberware Percolators and the pots most definitely outlast the cords so I'll probably be buying a couple more of these soon to keep on hand. Thank you!
