Electric Cooker Installation
There are different types of cookers that have different demands, from electric to induction, they all pull different power. Some run from a 13 amp plug but most will need the correct cabling and sockets installed.

An electric cooker must be installed on its own dedicated electrical circuit. It cannot be spurred off another circuit and must be controlled by its own fuse at the consumer unit/fuse board. This must always be done by a Part P qualified electrician that will need to register the new electrical cooker circuit with buildings control and issue a compliance certificate after said work is carried out.
Electric cookers use a large amount of current because they need to create an intense heat and so must not be connected to a normal household circuit otherwise you may be vulnerable to some electrical hazards in your home.
