Kitchens are places to have coffee with friends and play board games at night. They are also places to work.

COMMON KITCHEN ELECTRICAL NEEDS
Having a lot of outlets in your kitchen makes cooking easy and convenient. You aren’t constantly having to readjust the order that you cook your food or move bowls and such around. All kitchen counter outlets must be GFCI outlets, or ground-fault circuit interrupter outlets in order to prevent electrical currents from accidentally flowing outside the established circuit. Typically, kitchen outlets are installed every 12” or more; however, the more you have, the easier it is to cook. Delta Electrical in Jackson notes that there are regulations you must follow for outlet installation, so if you are DIYing your electrical outlets (which we do not recommend) do research the requirements. If you do hire a local electrician, such as Delta Electrical, do note because of these regulations that outlets may not always be placed exactly where you want them.
Delta Electrical in Jackson recommends that each alliance has its own dedicated circuit, meaning it has its own circuit breaker in your electrical box, which is typically located in the garage. This allows your appliance to draw the electrical current it needs in order to operate without overloading your electrical system or tripping a breaker. Plus, this makes work on that appliance easy because you can easily just turn off the breaker to the appliance without affecting the rest of the appliances in your kitchen.
All major appliances in your kitchen should have their own circuit, including your range, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave oven. If you have an older home, this may not be the case so you may be experiencing a lot of circuit breaker trips. Any time you experience this, it’s time to call your licensed electrician. Delta Electrical can install new dedicated circuits and/or update your existing circuitry in order to ensure your home is safe from electrical surges. This is why your circuits keep tripping, but it’s best to prevent that in the first place.
