Receptacle INSIDE Kitchen cabinet

Does code allow a receptacle to be installed inside a kitchen cabinet?

I would like to use it to power AC adapters for small items such as cell phones, answering machines etc. This would be in the upper cabinet with the devices on the counter top below.

Yes, this is allowed. Be careful about heat buildup from the transformers. Some of them get mighty hot, and the hot air won't be good for some foods stored in the cabinet, and the heat won;t be good for the devices themselves.

Thanks for the reply.

We usually keep only plates, bowls, glasses etc. in the those cabinets. Food stays in pantry.

Your right about heat from the transformers. Some do get pretty warm. I will keep an eye (or finger) on those.

thanks again.
