SMALL-APPLIANCE CIRCUITS
220.52, 210.11(C)(1), AND 210.52(B)(1)​​​​​​​

A minimum of 2 – 20 amp, 1500 VA small-appliance circuits shall be required to supply receptacle outlets that are located in the kitchen, pantry, breakfast room, and dining room. The two small-appliance circuits shall be routed to the kitchen countertop(s), and the outlets proportioned among the two circuits as evenly as possible to prevent unbalanced loading of the circuits. Unbalanced loading may trip open the overcurrent protection device because too many portable appliances are plugged into the same small-appliance circuit. (See Figure 14-2)
