Default NEMA 10-30P extension cable

Fun / Stupidest question of the day!

I just purchased a Shawarma machine
250v/60hz/1
21amps

(Photo of the plug seen below)



Is it possible to use a really long extension cord to connect this to my dryer outlet?

Say something like: Conntek 14368-50 RV 30 Amp 50-Foot 10/3 Brilliant Yellow Extension Cord Straight Blade

Thanks
Joe

It depends on the dryer outlet.

The male cord plug shown is a NEMA 10-30P.
What you have to watch out for is that the ground prong on the cord you propose isn't round instead of the "L" shaped flat blade style that mathces your dryer or that you accidentally purchase a twist lock plug.

why do you need such a long cord?
