was looking for a kitchen grid control panel before the renovation as I previously had one in Glasgow that looks like this .
The switches I previously used consisted of:
Oven switch was separate.
I tried to find it online but only found it on amazon.co.uk.
There was a cooker control unit consisting of an isolator switch like this but none of the above.
Should I have separate countertop switch for the hood, oven and hob?
- The hob and oven one would be a 1 gang 20A double pole switch with neon light.
- The hood switch will be a simple 1 gang light & fan switch.
It’s optional for the hob and oven as the electrician is installing 15amp 1 gang socket (with switch) below the countertop that goes to individual MCB.
The electrician had advised that I am better off doing that then hardwiring it.
Yes. will have separate switches.
I was not keen squatting down to reach into my cabinet to switch it off or even to reach up to my distribution box to flip the MCB.
