Title Electric cooking ranges, hobs, ovens and grills for household use - Methods for measuring performance
Project Number 22992
Abstract/Scope This European Standard defines methods for measuring the performance of electric cooking ranges, hobs, ovens and grills for household use. NOTE 1 Appliances covered by this standard may be built-in or for placing on a working surface or the floor. NOTE 2 This standard does not apply to – microwave ovens (EN 60705), – portable appliances for cooking, grilling and similar functions (EN 61817). This standard defines the main performance characteristics of these appliances which are of interest to the user and specifies methods for measuring these characteristics. NOTE 3 Some of the tests which are specified in this standard are not considered to be reproducible since the results may vary between laboratories. They are therefore intended for comparative testing purposes only. This standard does not specify requirements for performance. NOTE 4 This standard does not deal with safety requirements (EN 60335 2 6 and EN 60335 2 9). NOTE 5 For measurement of energy consumption and time for heating a load (see 8.3), this standard is furthermore not applicable to: – microwave combination ovens; – small cavity ovens; – ovens without adjustable temperature control; – heating functions other than defined in 3.16 to 3.18.

Normative reference (6)  

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
