"Depends upon the cooker and availability of correctly rated electrical supply. There isn't enough detail for an accurate answer."

"This depends on where your nearest electrical point is, this job could involve lots of preparation such as running electrical wiring to the new electric cooker.

Given that electric writing is near by existing cooker I’d say between £70-£100 including materials

If wiring is not close by this would mean running new wire close to cooker point depending on distance one has to cut the wall/walls run new wire and fit electric socket, understandably this would cost more."

"As others have said it depends on the available electric supply, and what you mean by cooker. Disconnecting and capping off gas supply approx £100, installing electric cooker if you mean built in oven could be another £100 as likely a supply available nearby. If you mean full electric cooker or hob then if there is an existing supply maybe additional £100 but if it needs a new supply from the CU then considerably more (full cooker or hob takes a higher current than just an oven)"

"would depend on weather you have an electric socket at the rear of the cooker.
a normal single socket is ok for a single oven and a larger cooker socket from the consumer board if you have a double oven.
removing a freestanding oven is very simple a built in one is more expensive.
hope this helps"

Gas cooker needs disposal and dis connecting. Electric cooker needs a new cable, sockets and fuses. If you have a splashback it might be invasive on your tiles. If you have wall might need to plaster abs paint to hide the new cable. There are a number of costs involved and different tradesmen."

"If you’re just looking at labour cost, it would be between £70 and £150. To buy the cooker itself, the range is quite wide, between £400 and £6000, so all depends on what you’re looking for."

"The cost should be between £100-200. It's depends how far the nearest electricity power is"
