Do electric ovens need a special socket?

Some basic electric ovens can run on 13-amp plugs. However, as electric cookers become more advanced, with capabilities such as self-cleaning and rapid pre-heat programmes, many cookers are now rated at more than 3kW. Often cookers made in European countries outside of the UK will need hardwiring.

Can a single electric oven with 13amp plug?

Any single phase (domestic) oven under 2.9kW can be fitted with a 13A plug as long as the manufacturers instructions dont state otherwise.
