We live in an old home and I'm planning to add a couple of new wall
outlets in our kitchen between the counter and the cabinets. What is
the recommendation for usage/non-usage of GFCI plugs in this part of
the house? I suppose the codes may vary by state, but I'm just looking
for a general rule of thumb. My in-laws home was built around 1970 and
none of the outlets between their counter and cabinets are GFCI plugs.
All outlets that serve kitchen counter tops must be GFCI protected under
the latest US NEC rules. You are not required to retrofit but it
doesn't cost that much so protect them all with GFCIs. New and
replacement receptacles must be GFCI protected.
Well we aren\'t no thin blue heroes and yet we aren\'t no blackguards to.
All kitchen counter outlets should be GFCI protected and kitchen shold
have seperate circuit for fridge, and dishwasher and at least 2 20 amp
thats the latest code far as I know and it makes sense, kitchen
appliances are power piggies...
