ovens usually just plug in via an ordainairy socket (depending on rating of course)

its the electric hobs you have to "worry" about
Sorry for the smiley post above...dont know what happened typed a message out but only the smiley appeared....strange one.
Thanks for the reply breezer the reason i asked was in my last home i had an electric cooker and it wired into a box with a red light on marked cooker with a on/off switch...i just took it to be this electric oven would be the same....Its 240 V 2400 watt (it says on the box) So will this be ok for an ordinary everyday socket? Thanks in advance
