Plenty of table top type cookers that run of a 13A socket, and even ovens with 1 or 1.5 or 2 Kw. elements or combinations of these which will happily run on 2.5. You really need to know what load your dealing with.
Suggest you check the manufacturers website or even a retailers site and check out the model number for details.
If it's under 3Kw. then 2.5 flex should be OK.

are we talking about an oven rather than a free standing cooker
oven normally 2 to 3kw but could be higher fan assisted ect the rating plate
if not on the back will be on the casing inside the door

It's a oven just confused me a bit when it has a 2.5 flex already fitted to it

MOST single ovens can run from a 13A plug, however, any cooking appliance over 2kW should have its own dedicated circuit to prevent long periods of heavy load on the RFC.

No disputing that, but OP had only asked if the fitted 2.5 flex was OK. We are are still trying to establish what the Kw. of the offending oven is. Up to this point the OP hasn't said what circuit it would be connected to. I had assumed it would be to an existing cooker circuit.
