My fingers were burned on the disconnected electrical plugs of the Revlon RV544PKF 1875W Tourmaline Ionic Ceramic Dryer. It wasn't a serious burn, but the plugs should not heat up like that. It's a fire hazard. My outlet is blackened where the thing plugged in. I only ran the dryer for 2 or 3 minutes, unplugged it, then picked it up to put it away. I touched the metal outlet prongs, and OUCH. I tried a similar hair dryer in the same outlet, but the prongs did not heat up at all. Many other users on Amazon..com, where I purchased this, have reported fire/smoke/heat/sparking issues. This is dangerous.
