In a word no.

Any cooking appliance 2kw or over should have its own circuit.

Just out of interest, how would you propose connecting it to the RFC?

hi 4.3 kw = 19amps and as jason pointed out 2kw requires a dedicated circuit
plus manfacturers instruction would state something along them lines

Apart from the rating of the cooker. It's annoying to have to switch the ring off to change the cooker in the future. Added to which if the cable to the cooker is buried, if there is ever no cooker, there is a potential for an exposed cable to go live when the ring is on.
