Electric Cooker


I am currently living in a house that is 4 years old and has a gas hob and electric oven. Both of these are connected to the mains via standard 3 pin 13 amp plugs. There is also a standard cooker switch that turns it all on and off.

We are interested in fitting a different cooker that requires a 30amp supplier. We obviously can't just plug it into the current sockets as there would be a lot of melting plastic etc...

I had a quick look at the consumer unit over the weekend and it looks to me like the line to the cooker may be 32amp.

Is it likely that they would have wired the cooker with a 32amp circuit and then put a 13amp socket at the end?

If this is the case it's not going to be a big job to put a 30amp cooker connection.

Any thoughts?
