I have a cooker rated at 11.4 KW. (2 ovens + 4 ring hob)
It has a blanking plate (rating unsure)
It has Cooker switch + socket (rating unsure)
The cable from the Consumer unit is 4mm2 and breaker in the consumer unit is rated at 32Amp.
Are the cable and breaker correctly rated within regulations ?
(I have had no problems with it so far.)

4mm, 32A, ok. 11.4Kw will take 49.5A on full load, diversity give 10A + 30% f.l. + 5A for a socket.
What do you think?

Personally I would prefer to see a 6mm cable.
as long as there is no thermal insulation anywhere near that cable it should be just about ok.

cable will be protected, but dont upgrade MCB if the 32A trips
