  1. Induction Cooktop - model recommendations

      It's about more than that these days, you also have to consider all the other aspects of your local building regulations like for example in the UK there are rules about distances between water and electrical stuff so your taps have to be a certain distance from your sockets, there are environmental rules governing what cables you can use, there are rules about what size cables must be used, are they braded or solid, how are they routed in the wall, etc etc etc. It's a complex job with legal and safety implications for the both the person doing the work and anyone using the kitchen after the work is done.  
  2. Induction Cooktop - model recommendations

    Could easily be, although I thought it was an insurance liability thing. In reality who cares why, if you don't know what you are doing fucking with 3-phase is going to kill you, and if you are giving advice on the internet the safest advice is "ask a professional"   When we got our last new cooker, it would never have occurred to me to wire it in myself despite having once been qualified to do so in the UK, I haven't kept up with domestic wiring regs there for 30 years let alone read up on the German rules, but I can do the basic maths regarding W=V*A and answer the simple version of the original question.   
  3. Induction Cooktop - model recommendations

      Yeah I guess split across 3 phases it might be OK, but with 3 phase it's doubly important to get an electrician in.
  4. Induction Cooktop - model recommendations

      I went and looked at the first one I could find on Saturn and it is rated at 7.4 kW. 7.4kW @230V ~= 32.2 A so probably not.   With something bit like a cooker I would always advise getting an electrician in anyway, so perhaps ask them?    
  5. What are you listening to right now?

    Another one gone.  
  6. And this one:-   The Pogues’ bassist Darryl Hunt dies aged 72
  7. And another one gone. Snowman author Raymond Briggs dies aged 88   He was a favourite of my kids growing up.  
  8. What are you listening to right now?

    I always thought you had some taste @Anna66 but Black-Lace, really.   Still it made me think of this so that was nice.    
  9. BREXIT positives and negatives

    I think the price displayed on the site should be the final price paid. It's not common in consumer purchases in Europe for the tax and duty to be excluded. I know it's really common in the US and as such it's not a huge deal, but it is "unusual".
  10. What are you listening to right now?

    @Anna66 The first of those has long been one of my favourite songs. The second I hadn't heard, but yeah like you say, wow.   Talking of Edie, there is this:-      
  11. Laws governing disclaiming of inheritance

    No matter what happens, once your wife gets her share she can gift it to the sister in question surely. That way you avoid any messing around with inheritance law and wills, and simply give a gift.   I have no idea if that will be tax efficient in either the US or Germany, but it seems clear that it will be legal in both countries.

  18. Why are you happy today?

    My kid came home and saw that I was miserable, so while I finished up at work he went out and bought a nice bottle of wine and cooked some Bolognese for supper. So I finished work, ate and am feeling much better. It's nice when people know you.  
  19. Why are you unhappy today?

    I just needed to search my wifes computer for a tax related document, and whilst looking I found a "letter to the grandchildren she will never meet" that she started to write back in September when she got her cancer diagnosis. I never knew quite how frightened she was and I've been a wreck all morning. I miss her.
