Electric cooking ranges, hobs, ovens and grills for household use - Methods for measuring performance

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.

Električni vgradni štedilniki, peči, pečice in žari za uporabo v gospodinjstvu - Metode merjenja funkcionalnosti (EN 60350:2009, IEC 60350:1999 + A1:2005 + A2:2008, spremenjen)

Ta evropski standard opredeljuje metode za merjenje funkcionalnosti električnih vgradnih štedilnikov, peči, pečic in žarov za uporabo v gospodinjstvu. OPOMBA 1: Naprave, ki jih zajema ta standard, so lahko vgradne ali namenjene za namestitev na delovno površino ali tla. OPOMBA 2: Ta standard ne velja za:
- mikrovalovne pečice (EN 60705),
- prenosne naprave za kuhanje, peko na žaru in za podobna opravila (EN 61817).
Ta standard opredeljuje glavne značilnosti funkcionalnosti teh naprav, ki zanimajo uporabnika, ter določa metode za merjenje teh značilnosti. OPOMBA 3: Nekateri preskusi, določeni v tem standardu, se ne štejejo kot ponovljivi, saj se rezultati med laboratoriji lahko razlikujejo. Zato so namenjeni zgolj za namene primerjalnega preskušanja.
Ta standard ne določa zahtev za funkcionalnost. OPOMBA 4: Ta standard ne obravnava varnostnih zahtev (EN 60335-2-6 in EN 60335-2-9). OPOMBA 5: Za merjenje porabe energije in časa za segrevanje naloženega (glej točko 8.3) se ta standard ne uporablja tudi pri:
- kombiniranih mikrovalovnih pečicah;
- pečicah z majhnim prostorom za opeko;
- pečicah brez nastavljivega nadzora temperature;
- funkcijah segrevanja, ki niso opredeljene od točke 3.16 do točke 3.18.

This European Standard was approved by CENELEC on 2008-12-01. CENELEC members are bound to comply
with the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations which stipulate the conditions for giving this European Standard
the status of a national standard without any alteration.

Up-to-date lists and bibliographical references concerning such national standards may be obtained on
application to the Central Secretariat or to any CENELEC member.

This European Standard exists in three official versions (English, French, German). A version in any other
language made by translation under the responsibility of a CENELEC member into its own language and notified
to the Central Secretariat has the same status as the official versions.

CENELEC members are the national electrotechnical committees of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, the
Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia,

This European Standard was prepared by the Technical Committee CENELEC TC 59X,
Consumer information related to household electrical appliances.
A first draft, based on IEC 60350:1999 + A1:2005, with common modifications prepared by
CENELEC TC 59X, was submitted to the Unique Acceptance Procedure.
The text of document 59K/161/FDIS, future amendment A2 to IEC 60350:1999, was submitted
the IEC-CENELEC parallel vote procedure. A further draft amendment (prAA), covering the
common modifications requested by the National Committees during the parallel vote on
IEC 60350:1999/A2 (59K/161/FDIS), was submitted to the formal vote.
The combined texts were approved by CENELEC on 2008-12-01 for publication as a
consolidated edition of the double-numbered European Standard EN 50304/EN 60350,
consisting of IEC 60350:1999 + A1:2005 + A2:2008 + common modifications + the text of
EN 50304:2001.
This European Standard supersedes EN 50304:2001 (+ corrigendum March 2002) and
EN 60350:1999 (+ corrigendum February 2000).
The following dates were fixed:
– latest date by which the EN has to be implemented
at national level by publication of an identical
national standard or by endorsement (dop) 2009-12-01

– latest date by which the national standards conflicting
with the EN have to be withdrawn (dow) 2009-12-01
According to the decision of CLC/TC 59X, taken at the meeting in Brussels in January 2006, this
European Standard has been drawn up as a document which follows, as far as suitable, the
structure of IEC 60350:1999 + A1:2005 + A2:2008.
In this European Standard the common modifications to the International Standard are indicated
by a vertical line in the left margin of the text.
This European Standard has been prepared under Mandate M/203 given to CEN and CENELEC
by the European Commission.
This European Standard is suitable for direct comparison and is considered sufficiently
reproducible within given limits for the purpose of energy labelling according to the Commission
Directive 92/75/EEC on ”Indication by labelling and standard product information of the
consumption of energy and other resources by household appliances“. All paragraphs which are
relevant for the measuring of energy labelling are listed in Annex ZA.
This European Standard also defines permitted tolerances to values declared by the
manufacturer and control procedures for checking these values.
Words in bold in the text are defined in Clause 3.
Clauses, subclauses, notes, tables, figures and annexes which are additional to those in
IEC 60350:1999 are prefixed “Z”.
