So I am an American, but I have a job that involves moving overseas for 1-3 years, then back to the states for training, then back overseas, back for training, etc. I do not know where I will be going in the future, and I can be literally sent anywhere in the world. I'm in Chennai, India (yes, where the floods have been happening!) and could end up in the UK, Brazil, Afghanistan, China, or genuinely anywhere next. So I try to minimize electric kitchen gadgets to minimize the inconvenience caused by dealing with different voltages, cycles, and outlet configurations. I have a bag of outlet adapters and typically a limited number of transformers. But I prefer to avoid dealing with them if possible.
Anyway...my resolve is weakening a bit. I'm thinking of buying an immersion blender once the floods stop. Shipping things to me from the US is sort of a fringe benefit, so I can easily buy one here or from the U.S. But considering my lifestyle, I really feel that it should be dual voltage/cycles. Does anyone know of a good one that meets this criterion? It seems as if many of the usual suspects from the U.S. (i.e. cuisinart and kitchenaid) only work with U.S. electricity. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
