Do you look for the UL mark?

I'm curious if anyone when purchasing electircal kitchen appliances looks for the UL mark on the products before they purchase?

Regardless of your age, your mother would have probably not bought any plug in item without looking for that little tag with UL on it. I always look, but have noticed that it's not always there. Are we still looking, do we still care, or are we beyond having an outside source qualify products before we purchase. There are many building codes that require things like circuit breakers to have the UL mark, but small appliances are not included in any codes. Just wondering, thanks.
