Subject: Voltage Conversion - Going to India with USA Roaster
 

Predicament:
I have a Fresh Roast SR500 for US power consumption (120 voltage). Taking it with me to India (220 voltage). I want to know what I should plug it into so I don't fry it.

Last time I was in India I fried a cuisine art griddler (120v and approx. 1600watts). I plugged it into a transformer (not a converter), but I don't think the transformer I had could handle 1500 watts. A converter may work, but the issue is the fresh roast has a digital readout for time-- making it not merely a simple heating device like a blowdryer. Plus, I'm not sure I trust those little converters anyway-- can they handle 20 minutes of continuous use? Do they really do what they say? Testing that out could ruin my roaster. And then there's the surge protection issue-- Indian electricity surges, I think, probably more than here in the states.

What do I get? Need geeks to help me out here.

Tim

ps-- variac would be a bonus...but not necessary.
