The circuit breakers essentially do the same thing, but what they do is they have a little device in them that's also metal when it gets warmed up, its a little more complicated that this, but essentially when it gets warmed up, if there's too much power moving through it, it just folds back, and so it breaks the connection of the wire, and then when you go back and you reset it you sort of push it back down and it makes the connection again, and so the power can start running through it again. And so it's reusable and you're not having to throw it away every time somebody puts the toaster on with the coffee maker and the refrigerator all at the same time. So circuit breakers make a lot of logical sense.
