What amp breaker should I use for a 4500 watt electrical oven and 9600 watt induction cooktop?
Currently, I have a 6 gauge wire and a 50 Amp breaker, and my current electrical range is hooked up to this.
I want to replace my current range with induction cooktop and electric oven.
Do I need to update my 50 Amp breaker to be a 60 Amp breaker? I saw some calculation and this table - http://www.naffainc.com/x/CB2/Elect/EHtmFiles/Table%20220-19.htm
BUT my cooktop is more than 8.75 KW so I wonder if I can't connect both on the same electric circuit?
