Code Question

In a residential kitchen, all equipment must be disconnected, does this include ovens?

The fuse or breaker is in sight, OR you can have it on a cord/receptacle. The cord must be accessible, usually by removing the drawer.

Lemme edit that, code sections may be what you are looking for. Check out Article 422, Part C, specifically 422-31(b), and 422-32(b) for your answers, that's using the 99 code.

I wire kitchens almost on a daily basis. I have never installed a diconnect for a cooktop or an oven. Always connect directly to j-box in cabinet.
