Is 2.5 mm cable OK for cooker?

Yes 2.5mm is fine. To determine the correct cable to use a simple equation of ohm’s law can be used. If you divide the watts by the voltage e.g 4920/230v = about 21amps, however you cannot get a 21amp breaker(mcb) so you would use a 32a so anything on a 32 amp mcb cannot be lower than a 2.5mm twin earth.
