    Do they exist? Or do you always have to add 50+ to the upfront showroom ticket price to allow for the electrician's hard wiring visit?

    A cute little situation which many of the suppliers seem all too happy not to mention in the sales pitch.

    Yes as a table top version - like the size you found in old caravans - they exist.

    But as a full 4 ring hob and single/double/grill they take a high load and have to be wired into a dedicated 30a circuit.

    A full size electric cooker normally requires a 30 amp dedicated supply. It would cost a good bit more than 50 to get that installed if it's not already there. There are small tabletop type cookers around that will run on a 13 amp supply, but for obvious reasons they aren't very powerful.

    If you have an existing cooker point and a modicum of common sense you can wire it in yourself.

    Most domestic ovens are fine on 13A, but a full size hob requires a 30A supply.

    You can get separate induction hobs with a 13A plug, but these seem to be underpowered compared with a "proper" induction hob. In any case, 13A is not going to be enough for a hob AND an oven, so you won't find a freestanding electric cooker (oven + hob) that works with a 13A supply.

    If you have a gas supply you could consider dual fuel (gas hob and electric oven).
    Let's settle this like gentlemen: armed with heavy sticks
    On a rotating plate, with spikes like Flash Gordon
    And you're Peter Duncan; I gave you fair warning
