gfci may not be required.

Not all kitchen receptacles need it.

yes I understand. My opinion is pantry is not a similar area. it's more similar to the kitchen.

But?

I think they should have said "and everything else", if that's what they meant.


Crawl space a similar area? It could be.

I disagree about the similar areas. And agree with everything else. Why can't they be clear?
