Mockett Grommet in island?? useful? annoying clean-up?
Is a pop-up Mockett Grommet a good idea for (extra) outlets on a kitchen island? I like not having cords hang over the edge of the counter, but DH is concerned that it's just a gimmick, that the seal will just collect crumbs & grime and make clean-up more work.
Can you please tell us
- what you like and don't like
- what do you plug in, (vs other receptacles)
- any installation & code issues
Our island will have a solid-surface countertop, an induction cooktop, a prep sink at the other end, prep counter space, plus a 2-person seating area. (plus other GFI receptacles on the ends).
Is it worth the price and the cleaning hassles? What do you plug in on your island? Electrician is working on the house this week; please help us make an informed choice!
Without knowing what we'll be plugging in, we can't decide if electrical cords hanging over the edge would be a hazard or no problem. (Our kids are 9 and 14). What electrical items besides a laptop and an electrical griddle should we be envisioning?
