I'm after some advice please.
I was sent an appliance from a relative in USA.
It's a mini food processor.
I already have one, so I don't really need this one, so I was going to list it on ebay.
But, the plug is a USA one. I know you can buy adapters for them, but the other thing is the voltage is also wrong. So even if you use the adapter, if you switch it on, it'll blow up the appliance.
If I am going to sell this on ebay, obviously I need to stipulate those particulars.
How can I list this, and successfully sell it without repercussions from the bidder/winner?
I'm just paranoid about selling and having the winner come back to me cause it blew up (especially if they don't do their research before bidding).
My only other option is to just throw it away

Could you sell it on the USA eBay instead?
FWIW, I brought back a hair dryer from Europe and my DH removed the European plug and re-fitted it with an Australian 3 pin plug and I have never had any issues many years later, but I must admit, I would be nervous to sell to anyone because of this day and age with litigation etc.

An adaptor won't work, you need a step down transformer I think
**** Smith sell the step down transformers.
Maybe include one with the sale (I have seen that done on Ebay) or direct the buyer to where they can buy one themselves and be very clear that the step down transformer must be used or it will self destruct.

It sounds cute! I'm sure it would be handy for those they like to grind their coffee beans or similar!

I bought a step down transformer last year for a set of clippers I bought from the states. The cheapest one d*ck smiths had was like $100 so definitely do your research if you do get one to sell. The one I got was $50 and they are heavy so you will need to factor that in with postage. The cost of the transformer might not be worth the appliance
