dedicated outlet for gas range?

Hi, I'm replacing my electric range with a gas range. Does it need a dedicated outlet? GFCI? Thanks, Steve

All counter top receptacles in the kitchen must be GFCI under current code. The gas stove (unless it has an electric oven) uses very little power and can be plugged into any counter top receptacle.

It does not need to be dedicated, nor does it need to be GFCI unless it is also accessible as a countertop or general-purpose receptacle. It can be powered from one of the countertop small appliance branch circuits, but does not have to be.
