The electrician who fits it will know. HTH.

They sell wire in poundland. It's supposedly for speakers but i guess it'll work with a cooker?

I'm not here to discuss wether to install the cooker myself or not, I'm looking at buying cooker cable for this cooker and would like some advice any would be great.

I do understand people advising others to follow safety guide lines and thank you the work on the cooker will be to spec via a qualified electrician. I don't understand people trolling over things like this, really? speaker wire please you need another hobby.

Its called 6mm twin and earth cable. It should be 30amp cable minimum (for a cooker rated up to 13kw), up to 45amp. It should be wired into the seperate cooker ring with a 40amp trip switch. Should cost a few quid a metre.

Best place to get it from is a plumber's or electrician's merchants. Found on most industrial estates.

Looks like this:

I've bought a few things from these on Ebay, great service.
Not sure if they have your cable but worth a look...
Check out this item I found on eBay: pages.ebay.com/lin…878

( other cables available, just do a search)

Normally 6mm "twin & earth" is used for cooker installation. Its solid rather than multicore, & the "twins" are both in additional sleeves with the earth only insulated by the outer cable.

If you feel a bit confused going to a trade supplier, visit B&Q who will explain things.

Even if the cooker you are installing does not require wire to accommodate a high amperage, its best doing it properly, as your next cooker (or those in the house after you) might.
