    Thanks everyone I bought the cable Kiab suggested and will have it installed properly tomorrow. Yes the reason it's black is my washing machine, dryer, fridge and freezer and cooker hood are black so goes well with them. Thanks again for all the useful answers.

    Your cooker seems equal to mine except for the coloration (its a Hotpoint too with ceramic hob, pinnacle oven/grill and foremost oven), its on a 32A MCB and had no issues, then you can try commercial electric smoker. Highest contemporary draw is once I'm beginning it up, turn on the principle oven and a couple of hob jewelry perhaps.

    Principle = main (oven)
    Jewelry = rings (hob)
    Pinnacle = top (oven)
    Contemporary = current

    I owned another best wok, cast iron skillet, electric smoker brand. You need a cable with sufficient thickness, the cable needs to have several wires

    Diversity should not be applied to stand alone ovens or dual fuel cookers with gas burners.
    Cookers with electric ovens and electric hobs are ok to apply diversity.

    This is an old post resurrected by spam unfortunately.

    @screwfix.peter any chance you can delete this and the previous 6 posts?

    Not this again. Read up on diversity.

    OP you don’t need 6mm cable. 4mm cable is correct for a 32 amp MCB.

    Telling to read up on diversity, I think you should read table 4d5, 4mm is only suitable on a 32 amp breaker if clipped direct. That would not look very nice in somebody's shiny new kitchen.
