Kitchen small appliance circuit ?'s


On the dedicated 20A GFCI breaker protected counter top recepticles can you use 15A duplex recepticles? Home Depot electric guy says yes, Black &Decker book seems to say no.

Thanks
Eric

A standard duplex is two places to plug into. A 15 amp recptacle will be fine.
