Which breaker to power Kitchen Island

I need to power my kitchen island. Which breaker do I use?

I assume I shouldn't use the 2 dedicated GFCI counter top breakers?

I shouldn't use the kitchen light power?

What breakers can i grab power from?

Do I need a dedicated circuit? Thanks

It's a countertop, so it should be on one of the two 20A circuits that power your countertop outlets.

Thanks, I didn't think of the island as being a counter top but I guess it makes sense.

You need at least two 20A countertop circuits. The island can be on either of the existing ones or add a third one if that option is easier.
