i want to buy a 3000w table top cooker but i need to know if it can be plugged into a wall socket or would it need its own fuse?

That is the limit for a 13Amp plug; 13Amps times 230Volts comes to 2990Watts. It is unlikely the cooker will be running at the full 3000 Watts for hours at a time.

A normal 13A fuse in a plug takes quite a long time to blow at 13A, not seconds but even minutes or hours sometimes.

The house wiring can happily supply 30Amps - if it is to the modern standard and in good condition.

So a wall socket will be OK provided there are not too many other high-power items plugged in to the same ring main. eg tumble drier, washing machine, electric fire, kettle, toaster.

Always check the plug is in good condition and does not get hot when working.
