    where can I get a 45A double pole junction box?
    just removed a standard Cooker (double oven with ceramic / halogen hotplates) and replacing with seperate oven (circa 3Kw) / ceramic hob (circa 5.5Kw) / combination oven (3.7KW).
    Have no problem with load (existing cooker cable is 45A on its own radial circuit), cept now ive gotta connect 3 cables to one!

    you could try this

    but it seems too cheap to be right , although it does say it is a cooker connection unit, may be worth calling screwfix and asking

    Thanks for suggestion, much appreciated. Ive seen these in B&Q but the cable ports are not large enough for all the cables. However yesterday 31/5, in another B&Q warehouse (not my local one!!) I saw an MK 100amp Double Pole junction box.
    A bit OTT both in size and capacity (and cost), but since its behind the kitchen units, it will be OK.
    Once again, thank you for responding.
