    i have a seperate cooker and hob

    instructions state

    cooker max load 2.385w
    direct connection... cable type to be used HO5 vv-f 2.5mm2
    device to be used must allow device to be isolated on all poles
    with a contact opening of at least 3mm wide must be provided
    Use a 13amp fuse.

    hob 6.2 kw
    for direct connection an omnipolar switch must be interposed
    with opening of 3mm between contacts and suited to load
    indicated on the plate .

    plate has various diagrams starting with HO5V2V2-F 1.5mm2 2.5mm2

    eg. 220-240 V HO5V2V2-F 1.55m2

    380-415 V2N HO5V2V2-F2.5mm2

    380-415 V3N HO5V2V2-F2.5mm2

    all other posts about hobs and ovens suggest 6mm2 (standard)

    Can i use a new cooker point with mains socket for oven
