Wiring Dishwaser/Disposal with plugs?


I am installing a Dishwaser and disposal in my remodeled kitchen and am taking e advice I got here to wire them with plugs and plug them into a recepticles. My question is, should I buy cord and add the plug ends or can I buy short 14g extension cords and cut the female ends off?

Thanks,
Eric

Buy appliance cords and install them.
Never use an extension cord in that manner.

Not to really be a pain in the ass, but to actually meet code, you are supposed to buy a cord listed by the manufacture of that appliance... ( Don't tell anyone, but I just install appliance cords)

Where do you find appliance cords that are not for dryers? HD and Lowes only list extension cords and dryer cords.

I buy them from my local supply house... but I know HD carries pre made cords.

Sitting next to the extension cords.
They may not be online, but it has a plug on one end, and open wires on the other.

Lowes or HD usually sells appliance cords that you're looking for.
