What's the deal these days with installing a new oven? I?m looking at replacement built-in ovens onMy understanding was that ovens either come with a 13A plug attached, in which case you can simply plug them into an ordinary socket; or they need to be hardwired into a suitable existing oven circuit, usually when they are higher current drawers.
But looking at the dropdown options, I see the following:
1. Comes with plug attached, no electrician required
2. Requires plug/cable attaching by an electrician
3. Needs hardwiring by an electrician
So what?s option 2 all about please?!
The second thing is that (apparently!) I have to install 2 single electric ovens side by side. I have a cooker circuit in the kitchen; is it ok to fit two hardwired ovens to this? How about one hardwired oven plus one with a 13A plug (eg can I add a 13A socket to the cooker circuit?)
