        Yes, just buy it from the USA (Sweet Marias has it back in stock, as does RoastMasters).

        I'm not sure if the 110V version has a supply voltage fine-tuning feature; check the manual when you get it

        All standard US domestic outlets will be 110V. 220V outlets, like you'd use for stoves/washing machines/etc have a larger, different plug/socket and they won't plug into each other.

          Surely there is a native model that runs on 110v?

            US model of Behmor 1600 is rated 120v 60hz. Older homes in the US are known to have problems with stable voltage unless a dedicated 15amp outlet is installed. The usual workaround is to run it off a Variac.

              Welcome to Coffeesnobs Snakeoil!

              I second the idea of grabbing one from Roast Masters.

              I had a chat with Barry from Roast Masters when I was in Seatlle last month and he said they are selling 1000's of the 110/120v volt roaster all over the USA each year. They also include a good pile of beans with it and I'm sure you be roasting some great coffee in no time.

              Enjoy the journey ahead!

                Hey Andy, will the conversion kits you guys stock run with the 110V Behmors? Still no sign of the Plus models stateside so I picked up a standard today.

                  The Aussie model boards and the US model boards are not interchangeable.
