recessed outlets in the kitchen, beside cooktop

pierretiMay 23, 2013

I was planning on putting these recessed outlets to the left and right of the cooktop (induction) in a condo. I cook a lot and my dad mentioned that because of the recess, it might get dirty and the white plastic will absorb lots of oils and discolor easily.

Has anybody have any experience installing them around a cooktop area?

I don't have any experience with them but I do have many things that wouldn't plug into it because they have bigger plugs. Of course most of these things are outdated electronics.

I just can't figure out why you'd want recessed outlets. Tell me why! I know you have a reason!!! :)

fori- I think they are made so things can sit flush against a wall with no protruding plug, like behind furniture or electronics.

Fori, Mrsmartamixer is correct -- I put in one of these recessed outlets where my microwave will go so it can sit on a shallower shelf over my counter....

Peirretti, sorry, but I have no experience with this type of outlet around a cooking surface.

thanks for the responses guys... i've gone in another direction regarding my counter top appliances in that area, and they won't need to sit flush against the wall, so i'm going to be using regular plugs!

thanks all!

just remember that all outlets over counter need to be GFCI-protected in the kitchen.
