Question about Ovens
Unless your talking about one of those tiny, table top ovens, dont use a 13 amp socket / connection.
An electric oven must be connected via a 30 amp SUPPLY - the socket is just the connector at the end of the cable that runs from the fuse / breaker board. A 30 amp supply will use a much thicker cable capable of handing the higher currents.
Whilst a very basic oven may draw less than 13 amps current when operating in some modes, most will draw well in excess of this depending on what facilities they have, e.g. bake and grill at the same time, or maybe a combi-oven - one that can bake and microwave at the same time.
