Of course, not all breakers are created equal. Certain type is used on certain type of application. A type of breaker can withstand surge of certain period without tripping.

The thing that is silly is puting a 6-15 15a plug on a 16a appliance and calling for a 30 amp breaker. They may have an engineer who is applying 440.22 but that goes out the window as soon as you put a plug on it. This should have a 6-20 plug and work on a 20a brealer or it should have a 6-30 on it
