    Hi All,

    I'm about to install my new kitchen, just preparing electrics at the moment, and would like some advice on cable and breaker size if possible.

    I've got two ovens going in, and one induction hob...

    Main Oven - 3480W
    http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/80300877/

    Microwave Combi Oven - 3000W
    http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/90307449/

    Hob - 7400W
    http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/60303933/

    Can all three go through one breaker in the CU (preferable) or would I need to have one breaker for the Hob, and another for the pair of ovens?
    Also, is it is still a reqirement for spur switches to be in place for integrated ovens and hobs?

    The cable run for all is around 4m to the CU, cable to be loose in conduit fixed to wall.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes.

    A "Cooker Switch" (not actually a spur switch) is not a requirement but it is a good idea to have one.

    32A MCB and 6mm² cable because it is in conduit will be adequate for up to 19kW of cooking appliances if you do not have a socket integral with the switch (15kW if you do).
