What are the different types of Electric Ovens available on the market?

There are several types of electric ovens available on the market, including:

Conventional ovens: These ovens are the most basic type of electric oven and come with a heating element at the bottom that radiates heat to cook food

Fan-assisted ovens: Also known as convection ovens, these types of electric ovens feature a fan that circulates hot air around the food, ensuring even cooking

Double ovens: These ovens have two separate compartments, allowing you to cook two dishes at different temperatures at the same time

Self-cleaning ovens: These ovens come with a cleaning cycle that uses high temperatures to burn off any spills or stains, making it easier to keep your oven clean

Steam ovens: These ovens use steam to cook food, preserving the nutrients and flavours of the food.

Electrical Requirements for Installing Single and Double Ovens 

In the UK, the electrical requirements for installing single and double electric ovens vary depending on the power rating of the oven and the existing electrical system in your home. Here are the key factors to consider:

  • Power supply: Single and double ovens in the UK  operate on a 220-240V power supply, which is the standard for domestic electrical systems
  • Circuit breaker and cable size: The power rating of the oven determines the appropriate circuit breaker and cable size. Generally, single ovens have a power rating of up to 3 kW and are fitted with a standard 3 pin plug, while double ovens may have a rating of up to 4.5 kW or more and need to be hard wired in
    • For a single oven with a power rating up to 3 kW, a 13-amp circuit breaker and a 2.5mm² cable are usually sufficient.
    • For a double oven with a power rating higher than 3 kW (up to 4.5 kW), a dedicated 32-amp circuit breaker and a 6mm² cable are typically required
  • Dedicated circuit: It is essential to have a dedicated electrical circuit for your electric oven, separate from other appliances. This ensures that the oven receives a stable power supply and reduces the risk of overloading the circuit
  • Earthing and bonding: To ensure safety, the oven must be properly earthed and bonded according to UK electrical regulations. An electrician will verify that the earthing and bonding are adequate during the installation process
  • Compliance with regulations: The installation of an electric oven must comply with UK electrical regulations, specifically the IET Wiring Regulations (BS 7671). A qualified electrician will ensure that the installation adheres to these standards
  • Installation by a qualified electrician: It is crucial to have your electric oven installed by a qualified electrician.. This ensures that the installation is completed safely, professionally and in compliance with UK regulations.

These are general guidelines and may vary depending on the specific oven model and your home’s electrical system. If unsure we are able to offer a survey prior to installation of your electric oven
