Title Electric cooking ranges, hobs, ovens and grills for household use - Methods for measuring performance
Project Number 20972
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.
