Hi Keith,

You should have no problem with your oven here.

We had a client who insisted on bringing all his electrical stuff from the UK (ovens, dishwashers, dryers, extractor fans.....you get the picture!) and had no problems with connections. The only problem was when they went on the blink.......guarantees were useless!

That´s okay then. No need for me to worry about the guarantee - that ran out ages ago!

No worries then, except for the cost of transport!

Could probably buy one here cheaper than what it would to bring it over from the UK ......and have a valid guarantee!

We´ve already got it here. It came over with the rest of our stuff 5 years ago (hence the guarantee has run out). It´s just that we never needed it as the house we bought came with an oven, so we kept it stored under the stairs for ages. Just bought another house though so it is finally going to come in useful!

It depends on how brave you are.
When we had our bathroom done the Spanish builder plugged his Kangol power chisel into our well dodgy, hanging off the wall, speaker wired, held together by sticking plaster etc electric 110V shaver socket.

And proceded to dig up the floor without any misshap

Previously I had never dared touch it, let alone plug anything in to it
