Question Convert 230v Breville juicer to 110v

Hi guys,

I got a Breville 230v juicer but live in US (110v). How do I go about getting the conversion done?

Easiest way - buy a travel adapter plug for use in the USA. Make sure the adapter plug suits whatever plug is currently fitted to your juicer (i.e Uk 3 pin, or continental plugs).

Otherwise you're into buying a new transformer that steps up the 110V to 230V. If it's a UK plug then something like this is what you need.

I'm sure there are suppliers in the USA who do this as well.

The Breville has a 600W motor so standard travel adapters will not work and neither will the 300VA step-up transformer in the above link.

You would need a step-up transformer rated at >600W continuous.

BTW, does this juicer accept SPDIF or I2S?

Edit: Damn, I was beaten to this joke while I was typing it!

I would suggest googling "Step up Transformer- lots of surplus places used to have them. Probably better to get one a bit more that 600 watts or voltamps. As far as I know a step up or step down can be interchangable. Maybe I don't know some subtlety..

here is an 800watt for $50

lots more on google...

Hey, I know nothing about juicerss and zero about Breville's......

But at least I got the step up bit right.

As for the travel adapter - I thought it was the cheapest way of trying to get it to work. I know they're not always great - my wife and her hair driers, etc is testament to that

It might be cheaper to just buy a new juicer though...
