is this suitable for use as a electric cooker cable

Asked by: garry
6mm twin and earth typically has a max current capability of 47A as long as your cooker does not exceed this you should be fine. If it does you may need 10mm Twin and earth which typically has a max current of 65A As with any kind of installation such as this it is always best to remember that these are potentially lethal currents and great care should be taken when working with them, if you are in any way unsure it would be best to contract the services of a qualified electrical installer to ensure a correct and safe installation.
