Duel fuel cooker installation

I have just bought a bush BDFD60S cooker for my newly built property. The hobs are gas and it has a double oven. Main oven has energy consumption 2.05kWh and the second oven has energy consumption 1.2kWh. Where the oven is supposed to be fitted it has a single plug point which I assume is for a 13amp plug. This does not come with a plug does anyone know what I need to make sure this will be fitted safely. I cannot change the property as I am renting. Should I return it and get another cooker which uses less energy to run.

You have only quoted the hourly Kilowatt rate of energy consumption. You need to establish the load in kilowatts. If its a 3000w (3kw) oven then it can be plugged into a standard 13amp socket. Above this it will need its own circuit and a local isolation switch close to the cooker.
