Do ADUs/JADUs need to have a kitchen?

Yes, ADUs/JADUs need to have a kitchen facility, by definition: any appliances for the preparation or preservation of food, including, but not limited to, gas or electric ranges, ovens or stovetops, refrigerators or freezers of more than five cubic feet capacity, and cabinets designed to accommodate such appliances. Microwaves alone would not constitute "cooking facilities." That is more aligned with a guest house or wet bar.
