A quick look seems that's barely enough.

" 2700 watt baker / 3400 watt broiler" so those cleaning cycles usually turn on both for cleaning.

That's 5,100 Watts / 220 = 24ish amperes.

Since we don't know what else is on and that could be 2 25 ampere breakers it's just too close. You don't want to go near 50% of total capacity.

PS. Just a thought.

Even your common 100 Watt bulb is an ampere so try it with everything else off.
