  • Flexible Cable size for 4.75kw cooker?

You have to have a fixed installation for this wattage as 3 kw is the maximum a flexible cord will handle. It has to be a cooker control unit with 20 amp cable and a 20 amp circuit breaker.

unless you are qualified you are not allowed to fit it ..and if you were you would not be asking

It depends upon how far away the cooker is from the connection. If it's more than, say, 50 feet, you'd need a fatter conductor to minimize voltage drop due to resistance. To calculate voltage drop, we'd need to know the amps and all you mentioned was the power rating, not the volts or amps.

You won't be using a flex. Find someone to do it for you as messing with something that big can really end in tears!

2.5mm provided the conductor is protected by a 20A circuit breaker

What rating is it fused at? If on a 20A supply, you can use 2.5mm flex.
