    Electrical ovens "Plug and play"

    Hi, I recently bought a Bosch built in elec oven. According to the guy who sold it to me I can just plug it straight into a socket, no need for it to have it's own circuit. Is this correct and legal? Also I am worried that if a technician takes of the plug and wires it to the old oven circuit I might lose my warranty on the oven. Can anyone please help me with this. With the oven I also got a gas hob, which apparently I can connect to a small gas bottle that I can simply keep in a cupboard?

    If the oven draws less than 16 amps, it can be on a plug top and powered off a socket outlet. Given that this goes with a gas hob, you're going to have to pay attention as to where that socket outlet is positioned though.

    The cupboard will need to be ventilated.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
