Hi everyone,
I am rewiring a kitchen as part of a renovation project. I need to choose a countertop receptacle for the spot where the homeowner is hoping to be able to plug in a toaster and a coffeemaker.

You need to keep in mind that there is a lot to be added to the breaker panel during this reno.**Will you recommend a 5‐15R split circuit
receptacle in accordance with code rule 26712, or a 5‐20R receptacle in accordance with code rule 26724‐B?

Please help me... I am in confusion

Hire a licensed electrician.

He'll save your sanity and your wallet.

This is not a DIY site, BTW.

Under NO conditions should you believe that you can DIY this project.

1) You don't have the tools...

2) You don't have the skills...

3) And there are gazillion ways that you can go off the rails.

Yes, 'things can work' while being a life-hazard to you and yours.

The latter you'll only figure out -- in the Emergency Room.

Electrical damage happens faster than ANY human on this planet can react to. :cry:

So it's not like having a leak in your pipes.

You know if you aren't properly licensed for electrical work you are opening yourself up for sever legal penalties.

Hire a licensed, a student does not an electrician make!
