Replacing hob, oven and worktop

I'm planning on replacing the kitchen worktop, electric hob and integrated electric oven in my flat. The hob is above the oven.

I need to replace the oven asap, as it's broken. I'm then thinking of replacing the hob and worktop later, but I'm wondering whether the oven will need to be removed to replace the hob?

Also, I'm thinking that there's no point replacing the hob now and paying to get this fitted, as it will need to be totally removed to fit the worktop, so would it make sense to change the oven now, then sort the worktop, then get the hob fitted?

    The oven should basically just slide out of the unit. They are generally only retained by a couple of small screws. It should be possible to stand it on the floor still connected (obviously isolated) when the worktop and hob is changed.

    As above, I slid mine out and put it on the floor whilst changing worktops & hob - there's usually enough wire to do this without disconnecting fully. It is an easy job to remove thought - 4 screws on mine at the door edges

    Some ovens come with a 13A plug fitted on the end of the cable. If this is the case, then it can simply be unplugged and moved to a safe place.
