Question about Hotpoint Ovens
Is this unit new?? Are you in the EU (EU regulations say appliances MUST be fitted with a plug) If it IS new, I would be talking to the supplier!
However, to address your question If it has a standard 3 core cable fitted, then it almost certainly should have a plug on it!
To reassure yourself, just use the simple formula of Watts divided by volts = amps
I'm presuming that you are in the UK (240 volt supply) and the oven is under 3KW (3000 watts)
This being the case 3000 watts divided by 240 volts = 12.5 amps, so you are OK with a 13 amp plug. Anything above a 3KW oven in the UK should have something meatier than a 13amp plug on it.
Of course, there is nothing to STOP you wiring it to a 45 amp outlet, but the fuse rating for the appliance should be matched to its maximum consumption to protect from faults failing to blow a fuse in a timely manner.
