Seldom are elec. ovens plug-in, they are predominantly hard wired.
Another ?. Where and what is the cooktop?
That's what the breaker is for.It's illegal to hard wire an electric oven or dryer nowadays, they need a means of disconnect for servicing, most practical is a cord and plug.
It is not legal to wire a new receptacle with three wire connection. However there are thousands of homes that still have old three wire receptacles that were legally installed. The same goes for dryer receptacles.It should be grounded absolutely. What I find strange is that you can still buy ranges that give you the wiring diagram for a 3 wire and 4 wire setup. I don't know where it's legal anymore to wire it without ground.
That's what the breaker is for.
As a for instance;
Of the 3, only the Range, and only if it applies to local code, do they provide for a cord to be substituted for direct connect.
