Using Mazzer Mini with 60Hz question...
Recently picked up a Mazzer Mini from the forums, and was silly in not checking first if it was 50/60Hz capable. Mainly because I checked the manual, and the manual does say 50/60Hz, with the proviso that it runs a little faster when plugged into a 60Hz supply.
Was planning to use it as a second grinder for singles at our small cafe in the Philippines (220V/60Hz), just wondering if anyone has enough of an understanding, or has used a grinder marked as 50Hz with a 60Hz supply. In theory, it should work, with higher RPM as stated in the PDF manual I read, but I presume the motor needs to be built to allow for the higher RPM in the first place..
Input appreciated - worst case, I have a much nicer grinder at home than I do now (Sunbeam 0480), so hardly a bad outcome.

It should be fine Zee...
It will run roughly 20% faster on 60Hz.
Verify that supply voltage matches that for the area you live in and you will be good to go...
Supply voltage is 220V (vs 240 in Aus - marked as 220-240 on the grinder itself) though this has never been an issue with any electrical product I've ever used - the 60Hz does mess with 50Hz lighting dimmers... (whoops).
Bit more going on there, though...
