    New T&E cable...

    Seen a couple of videos with Doncaster cables now producuing a T&E with the CPC already sleeved so no need to fit our own. I also read somewhere that this will soon become the norm and will have to be installed to comply with the regs instead of the regular cable. Any truth in that?

    The 'New' Rubber

    Hello Everyone. I'm surprised this subject does not get much attention. 'The elephant in the room' I refer to is the 'new rubber'. On new appliances I buy the flex / cable sheathing is far stiffer than stuff I bought say 10 years ago. Also the so-called 'rubberised' extension sockets are...

    Does it matter what wattage my new oven is?

    My Lamona oven has broke so I’m replacing it with a new one. Does it matter that the new one I’m wanting to get is 2.8kw compared to the current one at 2.4kw? Is it still safe to have or do I have to get one at the same power or lower?
