My Go To Small Appliance for Cooking almost everything

Recommended Posts

M.C.A.

My post is all wrong but then again I'm not an electrician so I'll try it again, I don't like using voltage converters to convert 110 to 220 volts especially on oven or crock pot type appliances.

I think you mean step down transformers 220/240 to 110/120

Anything with a heating element draws a lot of current  2000 watt could even be more

that will require some heavy transformer 

Here is one  3000 watt  https://www.lazada.com.ph/products/panther-pt-3000-step-down-transformer-3000-watts-99-copper-i141820357-s161548330.html?spm=a2o4l.searchlist.list.27.42f4454dqokhX1&search=1

8,999 PHP

Quote

 Load: 3000 Watts Max Surge /1000w Continuos Motorized / 1500w Continous Electronic 

1500 watt continous electronic, will be same for resistive load like a heating element

 

And the risk of someone some day plugging the device into a 220/240 socket       puuuuuf

Woolf my 110-volt crock pot was plugged into a 1500 watt voltage converter and it burned up along with the wall socket but I'm not familiar with a step-down converter they aren't cheap.

My advice:

do not bring 110/120 appliances to the Philippines or any other country with 220/240 volt

will give nothing but troubles

The ones I’m shipping over are 220v. I borrowed a big ass step up converter from work to verify that they worked before boxing them and shipping them out with other goodies we were sending anyway.

what you mentioned is not high wattage, and only need a small step down transformer

my advice still is,  do not bring 110/120 volt appliances to a 220/240 country

If it is something that you and only you will use, you may be ok. However, if anyone else will use it, it is only a matter of time until poof, it is a goner. 

After being carefully instructed and nodding and repeating "yes, 110 volts", the very next day my FIL filed down the tab on the plug of my dremel tool (it was too wide to fit the receptacle) so he could plug it into 220.

I sent over no less than a dozen 110 volt appliances/tools. Sooner or later ALL got plugged into 220, and one accidentally by me!

My blender plug is permanently taped to the transformer.  

My coffee grinder plug is permanently taped to another transformer.

I use a Turbo Broiler for my chicken it's a hot air large unit, I can put two smaller chickens or one larger chicken in it.  It's comes out like a rotisserie chicken I marinate with Magic Sarap, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  I start out with the breast down and then finish it up with breast side up, real easy clean up.  Guy came around and sold this 11 liter unit for 600 pesos.

Used ours yesterday with a corn fed bird. Even the breast is juicy and tender. Partner took a pic to remind her of of temperature test level. Not one gram of monosodium glutamate added to ours. Fine as it is

I'm back in the US for a couple of months, and Amazon just delivered my Ninja Foodi, an air fryer/steamer/pressure cooker combo, and a Range Mate Pro, both of which I will be taking back to Cebu.  So far, just about all the reviews I've read and watched on youtube of both units have been very positive.  However, as NinJa Foodi is not dual voltage, I will need to get a voltage converter/transformer that can handle 1400 watts when I get there.  Now, I'll just need to figure out how to pack this thing as as check-in box/luggage and hoping I won't have any issues going through the airport security.

Cheap 2000 watt converters/transformers are P18,600 on Lazada. Best bring one of those with you too:rolleyes:

Wolfe has a point and something I never thought of but my 1,500-watt voltage converter strains with my 7.5 quart Hamilton Beach crock pot, you'd be amazed to find these items for sale here and at 220 watts and the savings of not having to ship Balikbayan.

I think the funniest side of this is, people bring 110 items here, have to buy and use a transformer. Yet if you look at where the item was made it will be somewhere in Asia, most likely China.

I  laid out the extension leads and plugged in freinds disk grinder not knowing it was 110. Wow that was the most powerful grinder I ever used. Nearly took off out of my hands!:biggrin_01:
