I think? electric cookers came sans cable even 20 to 25 years ago, when I fitted ours.

But due to my inveterate skip hoking and hoarding, I had enough cooker weight wire to do.

Technically you shouldn't be wiring anything more than a plug not even in your own house. I can't say a lot mind, I work on control panels and I'm not a sparky.

Ah connected the gas up too, and repeated both excercises again recently when the daughter bought her Mum a flash new Bertazzoni cooker.

Also rewired the consumer unit, to tidy it up.

I am not an electrician, but  .  .  .

Never known one come with a cable (except possibly a 'baby belling').

I have always used the greasy skanky one that was attached to the old cooker.
