If you change the cord/plug, or make an adapter, you'll still have your 15A appliance on a 30A circuit breaker.
Hm, did not know/think of that! Looking at the picture Gin posted - I might try something similar and put a 15A breaker in it?!

About the metrics in the US: My brother-in-law is becoming an engineer, specialising in material science and wherever possible, professors, students and the newer books avoid non-metric units.
On the other side....:
Friend of mine is a mechanic and has 3 sets of wrench sockets etc...
metric, inches and British Whitworth
