Do they make this

Hi, Is there a electrical switch etc that will allow me to make a device go off in 30 minutes. I have a 10 amp device that I want to be able to set to go off in 30 minutes and walk away from it. I would like it to be in one minute increments if they make something like this. Thanks.

If that doesn't trip your fancy, there are myriad devices that would allow you to do whatever you want to do. Let is know a bit more info if you want to look for something else.

Exactly something like that. The only thing I want is for it to be able to plug into a standard 120 volt outlet with a female plug on the other end inorder to except the cord from the applicance. Thanks

I believe one of the various versions of a home timer will do what you need.Go to a hardware store and look them over.Timers come in several types and would handle 10 amps.They have tabs that cause the timer to switch on and then off.I'm sure some of them would function for a time period as short as 30 mins.You could either set the timer to come on at a specific time or move the dial to come on manually.
