"eSalton" is the company that makes George Foreman Grills - http://www.esalton.com
however, why are you looking for a 220 V grill? only clothes dryers and furnaces require that much electricity. remember, 220v outlets require prongs that are angled, so you can't mix and match.

Don't believe it comes in 22o Volt, which is truly too
strong for a small appliance, I believe. Yet, I don't have one of those, and judging by all the complaints
I see on this page, I may never get one. lol God bless you. : )

Some of us don't live in America. Much of the world has 220v as the standard voltage, which is not "too strong" for a small appliance.

In fact, 220v line current is far superior in terms of efficiency.

Voltage is analogous to pressure and amperage (current) is analogous to flow. 220v is not "too strong". There are 220v light bulbs, aren't there? In any given product, a 220v unit uses half the current (amps) that a 110v one would. In any event, the power consumed by the product is the same, because power (watts) is the product of voltage times amps.

Watts will rise as voltage rises. Those 240 V light bulbs have twice the resistance of 120 V versions of a given wattage.

Current is dependent upon voltage and resistance in a resistive load like the George Foreman grill. Keep the resistance the same and raise the voltage, and more amps will flow. The 800 watts consumed will rise to 1600 if plugged directly into 220 volts. The thermostat might be able to manage the temperature of the grill itself, but it will be very hard on the heating elements and possibly unsafe.

Buy a 1600 W "Travel Converter". It's nothing more than a diode that halves the duty cycle of the 220 V current going to your grill, making it act the same exact way as if it were plugged into 120 volts. Note that these usually are only good for heating appliances (no motors or electronics). Think of it like turning a light switch on and off sixty times per second - the light will appear on but half as bright as if the switch were left on.

Appliances designed for 220 volts are more efficient than 110 volt. They use only half the amps or current. Wire is cooler to the touch, and motors run smoother. This is why industrial power is higher voltage, its cheaper.
