Help me find a new cooker

I'm looking for a new stand-alone cooker. Gas hob with electric oven. About £400 to spend.

It should be pretty simple, but I am struggling because I need one with a 13amp plug, whereas most of them seem to be of the 32amp wired-in variety.

Any suggestions?

How about a gas cooker instead? I grew up with electric ovens and hobs but eventually bought a house with gas supply only for the cooker. I bought a double gas oven (top oven is grill or smaller second oven) with gas hob.

Absolutely loved it and miss now we have a built in electric oven (13amp) with gas hob. I think the oven is poor and hate the grill not being separate.

Don't electric ovens and grills draw too much power to have a 13 amp plug?

Mine is a Cannon Harrogate, it's a great cooker I love it, but I just looked in the manual. The oven and grill together are rated 4.4kW which would draw <does quick sum> 18 amps? And melt your cable.

Hence the 32 rated supply for cookers.

You would need to go for an all-gas cooker but I still recommend the Cannons. Does your kitchen not have a cooker socket?

No, sadly it doesn't. I've found a few, but they all seem to be over £500.
I have an all has cooker now, but really want an electric fan assisted oven.

I did not know you were allowed plug in cookers any more
