Careful with the advice there son.

If anything's plugged into 110v, it can shock you.

The "double insulation" comes from the construction of the appliance. If you ever had an old, say, metal framed drill motor go bad on you, and would shock the fear out of you, then you'll understand. New appliances are made with a plastic housing, giving them the second level of insulation protection.


I'm glad there are wine drinkers in this world ..... it saves more beer for the rest of us.

In regards to your statement above, I can postulate that you have zero knowledge or understanding of electricity and electrical theory. I sincerely pray that no one will replicate what you did. I strongly advise that you reconsider your future actions.

The electric motor winding, brushes and leads never came in contact with the water. It shot a little geyser of water up from the spinning shaft fan blades that cool the motor housing. I let it run for several minutes before unplugging it. I googled it and searched OSHA web site and found 0 reports of anyone being electrocuted or injured by electricity while using an electric knife or any type of double insulated tool. I also learned that a GFCI protector will not work with a DIT because they have no ground wire. They don't need a ground wire because they are double insulated therefore can not cause electric shock.


This is toxic, highly dangerous advice. Double insulated is not the same as water proof. Please delete your post if you still can.

I am no electrician but I do know I have had more than one of the Mr Twister knives that would give you a zap when they got older. I have had several of them and just replaced them when they started to tingle

I am not giving advice. I stated facts as I know them. Each person is own their own when it comes to anything so be careful.

Obviously you received more "dane bramage" than you thought you did.

The driving force and secret desire of every bass fisherman, is to one day be a crappie fisherman............Could it be that the good Lord just smilies and looks the other way when a fisherman tells a lie?
