: you can make the conversion yourself fairly easily. it's just a matter of switching the outlet for a 3-prong, and finding a place to connect the 3rd (ground) wire (you can usually just attach it to the metal box the outlet sits in. do a search online for instructions (try it's really not hard, just remember to turn off the electricity first!

: those plugn-in adapters are convenient, but even when screwed onto the outlet they never seem to hold correctly.

It's not really a matter of that, I know I could do that, but I am renting a studio and the two outlets (one which is being used by the fridge) are right next to each other and over the stove (not the fridge one.) so if i want to use something i need to unplug it before I cook. There are no outlets 20 feet away at the other end of the room, by the windows where an A/C unit should be. or anywhere else for that matter.
