It does look good. I would recommend some wire ties on the harnesses and I would suggest labels on the wires.

One white wire appears to be terminated poorly. (yellow connector)

Re: High wattage appliances.

I have sailed boats with microwaves and toasters. I run the engine when I use these. (I do the same with an anchor windlass)

The electric kettle can be easily replaced by a good old fashioned one on the stove.
