I thought our disposal was plug wired so left it in the box on the counter.
My contractor who is doing the install of the disposal, rather than asking me for an appliance cable, just cut my 12ga extension cord which was coiled up sitting on the counter, wired it up to the disposal then after he cut it, asked me to confirm he got neutral, ground and hot wired properly......sigh.
I had a bought a new 12ga appliance cord
for the dishwasher (also going in today) and I don't know why he would assume I wanted to do a hack job on the disposal but do the dishwasher properly.
These are the reasons why I want to learn to do things myself!
