What cable should I buy to fit electric cooker SW1011w from cooker to socket?

Needs to be done properly by an electrician not someone who has to ask on a deals site.

Get it done by a trained person.

Far too many variables, get it done properly otherwise you might melt cables and burn your house down.

I discovered that my old hob has a bigger draw than my cooker, but someone decided to put the job on a 13amp plug and wire the cooker into a 45amp supply. Luckily I never used all 4 hobs at once!

6mm depend on cooker amperage required then go to 10mm

The previous owner of my house had used 4.0mm for our double oven which was too small.
We only notice when we herd bangs from the back of the oven as it is fitted into the unit.

I used 6.0mm when I fitted new cooker. (size recommended in the manual)

​You're not alone, most induction hobs draw more power than double ovens!
