Cooker Switches

While planning and installing electrical fixtures and switches in a home, all the appliances that are going to be used must be considered. While for most appliances, regular switches and plug sockets will do, some of them require special switches. Electrical cookers are one such example. To run these, a special cooker switch is required.

Why use special cooker switch?

Cookers cannot be run by a regular 13Amp socket as these draw huge amounts of current. Using a regular switch for running these, may result in heating of the switch, melting of the wires and materials used which may cause fire or even short circuit. A dedicated cooker switch is needed to power these. For a residential building, one or two of these switches in the kitchen would be more than enough while a restaurant that has quite a few electrical cookers, will require a few extra ones.

Unlike regular switches that are rated at 10Amp or 13Amp, the cooker switch is generally rated at 45Amp. It has the capability to handle continuous heavy loads for long durations without posing any issues. Cookers of different wattages can be easily used with them.

Types of Switches

There are different designs and finishes available when it comes to these switches. The most popular of these are the plastic and the stainless steel cooker switch. A plastic switch tends to discolour over time, may even break in case of heavy impact and generally do not cope too well with kitchen heat over prolonged periods. They are usually cheaper when compared to metal ones.

On the other hand, the stainless steel cooker switch has high tensile strength and there is very little chance of it breaking, ever. These are made rust proof with a high life expectancy. Stainless steel will look better than plastic in almost all areas, making these a better choice.

For people who want articulate interior design, the stainless steel cooker switch comes with a finish that is elegant and classy. It can blend into all sorts of interior décors and is aesthetically pleasing. Though these switches might cost slightly more than regular sockets, they are a wise investment.
