    I wish it was easier to find dual voltage or 220V stuff.

    I really want a bread maker. REALLY bad. No one ever says if it is dual voltage though It's also really hard to find 220V stuff. Maybe I just don't know where to look.

    They have German stores that have bread makers.

    or you can buy a plug in and it will always give you the right voltage.

    I don't want to buy a german one though because everything will be in German and bread makers are confusing already without it being in another language

    What do you mean by a plug in? A transformer? I don't want to use a transformer because it uses more electricity. Especially since I'd have to leave the bread maker on for extended periods of time.

    Why not look for stuff that is made for England? Isn't that the same voltage?

    Just by doing a google search I came up with the brand "Severin", which has breadmakers.

    I *think* it's a different plug, I'm not really sure.

    A plug adaptor is pretty easy to get. Also if you find one that you may like just send the company or seller an email and ask if its dual voltage. And looking at a German store couldn't hurt, I feel like the instructions would probably be in more than one language.

    In Naples, our Nex has both 110 and 220 appliances available for us to purchase. Does your equivalent have that?
