Transformers and Adaptors

Taking your KitchenAid® stand mixer out of the United States

Appliances and electronics designed for the United States have limited or no use in many other countries due to differences in voltage.

KitchenAid®  does not recommend the use of adaptors or transformers while operating their appliances due to the potential dangers that differences in electrical cycles/second can create in different countries.

  • In the US, electricity is delivered at 60 Hertz (Hz) and in most other countries electricity is delivered at 50 Hz.
  • Running 60 Hz appliances in a 50 Hz environment forces the motor in your appliance to run slower and can potentially cause immediate motor or operational failure.
  • Using transformers and adapters can cause electrical shortages and/or even fires.

Taking a KitchenAid® small appliance out of the country voids the warranty.
