Electrical for changing my stove to a cooktop/over

Re modelling my kitchen and would like to take out my oven and put in a cooktop into the counter and a oven below just because i think it looks cleaner.
So of course there is one large female plug for the oven i currently have.
the cooktop and oven both have a cord.
options: is there a cord i can by that is male, female, female?
find the junction if i can and splice it?

someone told me i might blow my breaker too.. but why would i if Im not upgrading any power?

just going from all in one range to a seperate cooktop/oven

Did you mean stove?

You may need to run a second circuit. We need more info before we can say.
  • What size breaker and wire on the existing receptacle?
  • What is the full load amps of the cooktop?
  • What is the full load amps of the oven?
  • What size breaker does the manufacture recommend for each appliance?
  • Do you currently have a three or four wire circuit?
  • Are the new cooktop and oven 240 or 120/240?
