Found 18th Jan 2016
I bought this nice fitted oven in October 2015 for £299 and it's a fantastic oven. You can get Quidco cashback too. Bargain for £221.

It's brand new but be aware it doesn't come with a plug, so either
A) If your good with diy you can install this yourself with a standard 13 amp plug but MUST have at least a 1.5mm copper wire - £0 installation - Took me 20 minutes to wire.
Or
B) Get an electrician - typical £50-100 charge

either way for a Bosch oven it's good value.

PS - They also do this in Silver.

I thought manufacturers where required by law to fit cable and plug to electrical appliances ?
Sorry about this but I don't believe this should be fitted with a 13 amp plug or plugged into a 13am socket. If the oven is rated at 13 amps then it is using the maximum power allowed safely on a 13 amp circuit and nothing else (no other sockets should be on that circuit). Also I believe 13 amp circuits are run with 2.5mm power cable not 1.5mm which is used for lighting. All the cookers/ovens I have dealt with have been fitted with 30 amp rated cable. Please check with a qualified electrician before installing.
13 amp plug and 1.5 mm cable - seriously?
I'd suggest you delete your post for the safety of others who might follow your advice.
1.5mm on 13 amp is fine .... kettle and a washing machine all on 13amp 1.5mm cable 1.5mm cable will take more than 13 amp so the cable is protected by the 13 amp fuse most built in ovens ate a plug in 13 amp type but there are ones that require their own circuit protection with a higher current draw ....but a 13 amp load on a fused 1.5mm cable is fine .....

It isn't a problem for a single oven designed to draw less than 13A to be fitted with a 13A plug and plugged into a 3-pin socket. The issue lies with stand-alone electric cookers, where the hob alone can draw up to 30A; this must be directly wired to the cooker circuit.
Don't worry it's A+ Rated on energy efficiency.
Any UK socket allows a maximum of 3000 watts, this item uses 2500 watts so well within limits. Of course common sense don't use another high use device on the mains socket. The manual says you don't have to use a 2.5mm as it's energy efficient - a 1.5mm cable is needed which I got 3 metres worth for £3 at my local hardware store (Wilko only did 0.75mm which wouldn't be enough power).
It's been working over 3 months with no problems on all Sunday roasts!

PS - The Bosch Manual itself says 1.5mm cable for those that are safety aware. Also come to think of it my Bosch Kettle - model number TWK8631GB (like all kettles comes of course with its own 13 amp plug) and uses 3000 watts - boils water super fast - of course I have this on a separate socket to the oven - I've had that for 6 years with zero problems to.

​like most products, you can buy extra accessories, it comes with 1 tray and 1 shelf but you can buy an extra shelf which I have done and I'm able to cook a Sunday roast for 8 people :-)
Just bought with 10% discount code (EMAIL4173). Less than £200 for a Bosch oven that I won't need to rewire for. Bargain! Voted hot.

​Please can you tell me if anyone can use the code. Do you add it when you are checking out?
Anyone can use the code but I think its expired, price is still good at £221 + quidco cashback.

​Thank you for your reply. I have just ordered this oven but I was unable to use the code.
However as I am very old I was able to get my over 60's discount today :-). Excellent price.
Does anyone know if you can set the timer on this for the oven to come on at say 5pm?
