So I have a bit of a dilemma in that I live in a second story condo with no way to pull in a new 240 circuit to where I want to brew (my kitchen)
I have an electric kettle, but currently just with a 1500W element running of of a 120V circuit (slowww...)
I do however have an electric wall oven currently hardwired into a 240V 30A dedicated circuit. The junction box that the oven is hardwired into is in the cabinet next to the oven, so it's accessible. I was considering replacing the hardwired install with an outlet so that I can use it for electric brewing (i.e. unplug the oven from the outlet, plug in brewing rig, brew, then plug oven back in). The oven's instructions - and those of other ovens I looked at - specifically call for the oven to be hardwired. In my read of the NEC, it seemed a bit ambiguous about this, but I'm no electrician and before I call one to get clarification I thought I'd ask here to see whether anyone has any thoughts.
