It'll run 20% faster for the same setting but other than that, it should work ok with a new plug.

I brought mine with me when I came here in the 70s, and it worked fine. I still have it, but I hardly ever use it, as I use cordless ones now. Frequency here is 60 Hz.

Yup, 60 hertz instead of 50 hertz.
