Can a 110V Electric Range Be Used in a 220V Electric Socket?

An electric range intended for use in 110 volt sockets can be used in 220 volt sockets with the use of an appropriate voltage converter. Attempting to use the appliance without a proper converter may damage the appliance and pose a safety risk.

Voltage converters are devices that step down the 220 volt electricity from a 220 volt socket to a voltage appropriate for the appliance. They should not be used with an electric range that draws more than 2,000 watts, nor should they be used for more than one hour, suggests travel supply retailer 1st Stop Travel & Globe Store.
