Sadly, the thing that offends me the most about that install is the broken standard size duplex plate.

I'm thinking they're on to something.
In Canada, counter receptacles need not be on AFCI's. That hole in
the counter will save someone $60 and the frustration of dishwasher
stopping due to nuisance tripping.
What else can we plug into the counter plugs?

Don't know how 'new' it is .. but Leviton has nylon plates now.

Packaging actually says 'unbreakable' !

I've used some, and they actually seem pretty much unbreakable....

Guess they finally listened to some of the complaints
