    So, I got a built in cooker and it came with a plug into the cooker instead of just wiring straight from wall to cooker so it would require a junction box to connect both wires together as the wall plate isn't easily accessible to wire straight in.. My question, what amp junction box should I use? The oven that was there when I moved in had a junction box but when I replaced it the new oven at the time didn't require it so it got lost.

    30A should do the job.

    It’s more about fitting the copper into the terminals

    Or fit a 13amp socket, where the present cooker cable ends.

    The space isn't great where it sits so could be awkward getting it all in, plus the oven is above the kW recommended for a 13amp plug

    You said it came with a plug fitted to the cooker, is that a 13amp plug?

    No sorry, I worded that slightly wrong, it's a plug that goes into the back of the cooker instead of the wiring going into the cooker, like a computer power supply kind of cable
