@Selous: Since you have a resistance, the amps depend on the volts. More volts, more amps. But 50 mA are enough for certain death, so don't worry.
@drips: The protection in an outlet strip does only protect devices plugged in. The strip itself still has power to kill.
@Kaagan: A surge protector will prevent the grill from over-current, it will not prevent the guys from taking 220 V.
Here in Germany, new electric installations must have a FI-Fuse (maybe other name in English) which would react to the current not returning on the designated wire (e.g. on the ground wire or directly into the bathtub).
Without this kind of fuse, the grill may even happily heat the water and some dead bodies. This would work as long as you have less than 16 A total current.
