New Hob and Oven Installation

Hi All,

Installing a new kitchen in the house and looking for some advise on the electrical side for the Hob and Oven.

Hob and Oven are located separately (different sides of the kitchen) and each current have installed dedicated circuits in 6mm T&E taken from the consumer unit where there is a 32a MCB, understand that this is RCD protected. As it stands these are both just 6mm cables sticking out of back-boxes in a freshly plastered wall - so ideally I'd like to keep these.

For each of the hob and the oven my plan is to wire the 6mm T&E into a 45A 1 gang DP Cooker Switch, and then go from there to a 45A Unswitched Cooker Outlet Plate, from which the Hob/Oven can each be wired in.

The specs of the appliances I have from their websites are:

Oven - Connection rating 3.45kW, Voltage 220-240 V, "Fuse protection" 16A.
Induction Hob - Total load 7.2kW, indication hob, 32A.

Does this sound reasonable?
