Our fully trained team will get your new electric hob set up and ready to go on your delivery day. We’ll even disconnect your old hob. We’re fully approved by the NICEIC. Who? Only the UK’s leading electrical assessor – so you know our standards are high. Find out everything about this service and what you can do to get ready for us.
We’ll get the electric hob installed in no time. Here’s everything we’ll take care of.
There’s just a couple of things you need to do and check before we arrive.
The space around your hob is called the Hot Zone and you need to make sure it’s free from switches, cooker hoods, and anything flammable (wallpaper for example). There needs to be a gap of at least 65cm between your hob and the cooker hood or ceiling. If the Hot Zone isn’t clear of hazards, we might not be able to install.
Make sure your current electrical connection (plug socket or big red switch) matches what your new hob needs. If your new hob is over 3kw, then you’ll need a 16Amp or 32Amp fuse - a big red switch. If your new hob is below 3kw, then you’ll only need a standard 13Amp fuse – a regular plug socket.
Compare what you have with the details of your new hob on the Product Detail and Installation tabs on our product pages to make sure you’re all set.
While you’re on the Product Detail section on our product pages, it’s worth checking the dimensions of your new hob, just to make sure you’ve got enough space in your kitchen.
Switching from a gas hob? No worries. We’ll send along one of our Gas Safe engineers to make sure your new electric hob is installed properly. If you're ordering online, you can let us know that you’re switching from gas at the checkout. If you're placing your order over the phone, please make sure we're aware of this.
If you use a pre-paid meter, please make sure it's topped up. If we aren't able to test the connection, we won't be able to install your electric hob.
Here’s everything our installation service doesn’t cover.
Pricing for this installation varies. Please get in touch with the team with any queries you have around pricing for the installation service.
We can, if you have the right electric connection for your hob. If your new hob is over 3kw, then you’ll need a 16Amp or 32Amp fuse - a big red switch. If your new hob is below 3kw, then you’ll only need a standard 13Amp fuse – a regular plug socket. If you don’t have the right connection, we won’t be able to install. If you're unsure, please get in touch with us and we can advise you.
Yes. If you're ordering online, let us know in the basket and we’ll uninstall your old hob as part of installation. If you're placing your order over the phone, please make us aware of this.
