Myself, I wouldn’t likely be putting a new remote CU for a cooker on top of a B32 RFC. If it needed it’s own B16 it would be sitting in the CU and feeding the appliance in the usual way. But that’s just me, I can’t comment on what someone else would do.

That's fair enough Wilko, what you say would certainly be better practice. There are times when best practice is hard to achieve - no spare ways in the CU, expensive decoration, you know the sorts of things. It's nice to have other options which, while perhaps not ideal, will still get the job done

Sorry to ask yet another question on this thread.
I’ve found an oven which is 13amp but it doesn’t come with a plug and says it must be hardwired.
Does anyone have any idea of the reason for this?
Is there any reason why a plug can’t be fitted to it?

Thanks again

ETA... I appreciate that MIs should always be followed, I’m just intrigued as to why this might be the case.

They are not manufacturers instructions, just the advertised spec.
