European countries use 50 HZ ( in this case it most likely doesn"t matter,
except that the transformer is engineered to make allowances for this and will
not perform optimally) and somwhere in the neighborhood of 200 volts.  IMHO
plugging it into an American 110 line will cause it to provide half the
current and probably 1/4 the heat output.

Someone who works with electricity professionally please comment on this to
make it official.
