Click do make a double connection unit which will allow two outlets it of course does need a back box it looks like this however to ask simple questions like you have asked shows you are not really able to do the work. Electrics is not a join the dots exercise.
We have to for example when selecting cable first look at the installation method. 6mm sq cable could be rated anywhere between 23.5 amp and 58 amp according to installation method and type of cable.
Assuming you want a 32 amp supply with Reference Method 103# (in a stud wall with thermal insulation with cable not touching the inner wall surface) and thermoplastic insulated and sheathed flat cable you would need 10mm sq.
If you want a 45A supply even 16 mm sq cable is not big enough for Method 103#.
Of course you may be using Reference Method 100# (above a plasterboard ceiling covered by thermal insulation not exceeding 100 mm in thickness) in which case 32A can be drawn from a 6mm sq cable.
Think you need to get some one to do this for you and ask them why they are doing it the way they are doing it and not DIY until you know a lot more.
Considering it will likely cost more to DIY then get a registered electrician to do the work by time you include LABC and hire charges it seems a little pointless to DIY a kitchen.

Well you shouldn't - you are incompetent.

That's not the problem - your incompetence is.

and i realy want learn for future

Excellent idea.


But while you are learning, please get an electrician in. I seriously doubt that you could put forward a convincing case that you could do the work in compliance with the Building Regulations anyway, so it would be illegal for you to even try.
