Electrical outlet monted under kitchen wall cabinets

I'd like to use this: Panduit JBP1MD20EI. Is is appropriate for under cabinet mounting? I know that it has to be fed from a GFI circuit.

Thanks,
Matt

That would be fine. If it is part of the small appliance circuit it can not be higher then 20" above the counter.

Thanks very much, that's the lowest profile box that I was able to find.

Another option is to install a strip of plugmold the length of the cabinets. They are only about 3/4" thick. Again, it still needs GFCI protection. Wiring it under the cabinets can be a bit of a challenge.
