We sometimes see strange things when touring homes with clients. After walking through one property top to bottom, we were surprised to see a “meat grinder” listed in the circuit breaker box in big bold letters … where was the meat grinder? And why does a single-family home have such a serious meat grinder that it requires not only a dedicated circuit but also a double breaker?
It seems that this relatively new home salvaged their electrical box, and the actual circuit breakers, from a commercial building. There was also a circuit for the “Xerox next to the elevator” and other commercial sounding circuits. Weird. And sorry for the blurry picture – it was dark and all we had was a phone’s camera.
