yeah definitely a job for a sparks. Im sure confident DIYers would do it no problems but personally feel electricity is not worth messing around with even if it looks easy on Youtube. Getting an electric shock is not a nice experience.

A load of ovens just have a 3 pin plug now.

Dedicated ovens do; but what a lot of people mean by "oven" is a standalone unit - cooker, stove, whatever; which always need hard wiring unless they have gas burners. I can't tell which the OP means here.

We've never had a standardised high-amperage home connector probably because we don't need them; countries with 110v have them as they
need them for electric washers and dryers too.

Must be light weight cookers if not using all that leccy like they used to do,so conversion would need sparks to add a box behind cooker to allow to plug in and still have power switch on wall in case next oven did not.

Heard plenty of users in USA accidentally getting their hobs turning on by knocking against them and they dont fit off switches for their hobs or ovens and seen plenty of plastic based items melt.Glad we have cut off switches

I’m talking about a single oven/grill. 2400w with everything on.

Cant remember the Belling the mother had but was duel purpose and the fan oven would just fit a 26lb turkey,and the small oven/grill above was well used.It did many wonderful things and used to bake in it.The fun has long gone.
