5.5KW on Flex?
This is shown with a flexible supply cable and plugged into a wall outlet.
If it's 220v and 5.5Kw that makes it 25amp which in the UK would need a 32amp fused spur and would be unsuitable for "plugging in" am I correct ?

I guess this would need an individually fused 32A oven spur and would have to be hard-wired. The cold-start current would probably blow the fuse or trip the MCB at the consumer unit on a normal spur.
