Kitchen circuit confusion
After reading a few posts here, I am now confused about the NEC small appliance circuit requirements. I thought I needed at least 2 20amp circuits to feed countertop receptacles, and that these could also be used for other recptacles in the adjacent dining room and the den/breakfast area - but no other outlets (lights, range etc)
I have read staments to the effect that any circuit supplying the countertop receptacles must be used ONLY for those receptacles (and not dining room etc).
Can anyone clarify this for me?
