    outlet in a vanity drawer

    I installed an outlet in a vanity drawer years ago, now I am asked to do it again. Then, I researched and found it met code to install a gfi outlet in the wall, in the back of the cabinet, then plug in an SO cord into it and attach it to an outlet mounted in the drawer back. Is this what you do? (I may have used a gfi protected regular outlet in the wall so I wouldn't need to be concerned about being accessible.) Thank you.

    The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain

    Your inspector will accept the misuse of a cord cap?
