Hello welcome to JA/ Pearl , my name is***** , and I will try to answer your electrical questions today!

I just looked up your cooking unit online and it says it draws 12.5 amps, here in the united states that means we would by code have to put that on a dedicated 2 pole (2 hot legs connected to the overcurrent breaker or fuse) 20 amp breaker with a wire size of at least #12 AWG , which is about 2 mm in diameter for conversion purposes.

I hope that answers your question, please do not forget to rate me and have a wonderful day!

If you have any further questions / comments this thread will remain open for some time.
