    i would leave the 6mm on a 32A MCB and ditch the socket outlet on the cooker point. that brings the load down to 24A.

    Good thinking , but I don't think they have another socket on that part of the kitchen and they plug a steamer and kettle into it, I shall pop back round and give them a few alternative quotes

    Here was me thinking that it was only pregnant ladies who were induced! (sorry, couldn't resist :smug:). As above, I'd go for seperate circuits.
    Regards.

    I was looking more at 10mm, but inflexibility of fitting it in the location it would be fitted has made me look at altenatives before making the jump, I know fitting 2 X 6mm circuits would be the one that ticks all the boxes.
