Just wondering what everyone’s view on this is, if you’re mourning cooker or hob switch in cupboard close by. Would you still terminate into an outlet then go from there to cooker or hob? Or would you take the cable straight into the appliance
 
Some 45A DP switches have a built in flex clamp so this permits flexing directly to the isolating switch but it depends on location as not always close or convenient enough to flex directly to the isolator.
 
Sausages (just for tracking a min lol needed a word, I must be hungry)
The point of an isolator is to provide isolation for maintenance, cleaning or in case of fire.
By my understanding of the regs it should be ;
1 Accessible
2 Labeled if the purpose is not obvious
3 If it is not a domestic installation it should be lockable.

It is understandable that customers may not want to have an isolator that is visible in their kitchen so instead of trying to hide them in cupboards why not put them beside the main board with a label on them?
Or am I wrong?

Yes. But nothing to do with the OP question!
