That should be fine, yeah. I assume that's if you give it a 20a 120v line?

Any chance of a 20a 120v de1 that we could just plug into our normal kitchen outlets?

Yes, that is correct.

Maybe a DE1++?? :lol: If the intent is to get a little more steaming oompf.
I'm hoping this is in Decent's R&D to-do list along with a lower priced DE1+ (maybe call it DE1-)
I for one would prefer that they make the DE1+ available to order again before they work on a 20A 110 model.

BTW, I'm not a licensed electrician but my understanding is that a 20A 110/120 V line is not normal for a US kitchen. It will usually entail a dedicated circuit (ensure only 1 item that draws 20A max) along with a different plug/outlet configuration from a 15A 110/120 V circuit/outlet

Code in the US requires TWO 120v 20A circuits in the kitchen.

E3703.2 Kitchen and Dining Area Receptacles
A minimum of two 20-ampere-rated branch circuits shall be provided to serve all wall and floor receptacle outlets located in the kitchen, pantry, breakfast area, dining area or similar area of a dwelling. The kitchen countertop receptacles shall be served by a minimum of two 20-ampere-rated branch circuits, either or both of which shall also be permitted to supply other receptacle outlets in the same kitchen, pantry, breakfast and dining area including receptacle outlets for refrigeration appliances. [210.11(C)(1) and 210.52(B)(1) and (B)(2)]

Exception: The receptacle outlet for refrigeration appliances shall be permitted to be supplied from an individual branch circuit rated 15 amperes or greater. [210.52(B)(1) Exception No. 2]

20a circuit - yes
20a outlet - no

My kitchen has 20a outlets. Changing receptacles is a very easy job. Even if you hire it out it would cost less, and be cleaner (and in my non-electrician estimate, safer) than a step up transformer.

Is the pour over function only found on the XXL model?

All models, with the pour-over basket needed as an accessory.

Maybe someday, but 15A is the max allowed by UL, so not today. We move to "commercial" UL if we use more than that.
