If you can identify the type of connector, you can probably find the cord.

Wikipedia has a page on standard IEC connectors here (www.wikipedia.com).

It could also be an appliance plug (www.wikipedia.com) which may be harder to find.

Typing in ALL CAPS is SHOUTING  on the net, other than that, welcome to the board and good luck in your search for a cord.

my apologies, i am not that adroit at typing, it's much easier & faster for me to type in lower or upper case. i've been using a pc since 1995 & you are the first person to assume that i'm shouting, i'm not, i just have a handicap. thank you for welcoming me. i will type in lower case not to offend you. is that considered whispering. all in good humor.
thank you

http://www.albury.net.au/new-users/netiquet.htm
http://www.netlingo.com/word/netiquette.php
etc etc.
and from wiki: ... "(all-caps typing) became solely identified with "shouting" or attention-seeking behaviour."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_caps

If this is the first time someone assumed you are "shouting", I am guessing you don't use internet forums or email much?

It's not a matter of offending someone. It's a matter of making text readable on screen (ALL CAPS TYPING IS MORE DIFFICULT TO READ than mixed case typing), and delivering intent. People cannot see you, your facial expressions, your mood while you type, so we rely on the way you present your typing and words to get a conveyance of how you want to come across. TYPING IN ALL CAPS is essentially taken as shouting, demanding emphasis, meant for effect and is used sparingly to drive a point across.

thank you len, i love coffee, i'm sicilian, i was wheened on what my family called cafe neewuroo ( sicilian for nero-black). we drank it in fine china gold leafed demmetasse cups. it was a ritual my mom measured out the espresso in the little basket of the pot filled the bottom 1/2 of pot with water, put the basket on top & screwed the top of the espresso pot on tight put it on the stove & waited for it to boil up  through the coffee & the wonderful aroma came wafting by & everyone got excited, cause on special occasion's sunday's & holiday's the finest tasting pasteries came out with the coffee, canoli's, sfogliatelle, pasticiotti giugiulena, biscotti, oh what fond memories, the men would put the playing cards away. we would recount the day, talk about family issues, laugh alot & loud & plan on doing it again next sunday at nonna's house. so i have this wonderful espresso pot "zappia paradiso" which i can't use because it does'nt  have this odd cord that comes with it. i wish i knew how to post a picture of it, it's a piece of art work(art deco). it has 2 prongs like on the old rotiseries, only smaller.  sorrentinacoffee.myshopify.com this place has one search for a paradiso after you get websight.
thanks

I checked out the site.  I did not know that the Atomic was still being made.  I always enjoyed the look of that espresso maker.  A work of art.
