The hz will affect the speed of whatever motor it has
shouldn't be a problem
I am slightly confused with the 110v and 120v
The transformers i've seen online are all 110v to 240v
Isn't mine going to be under powered??

110/120V applies to the same voltage rating. US supply is rated @ 120V, but this will always fluctuate up or down by a few %.

We've got 2 "massive" step down transformers used to run a Sears Fridge /Freezer pigeon pair. They were simply the bomb compared to what was availed in Perth in 1980.

Heavy as the transformers - cost me a toenail in my youth when I dropped it helping move the freezer. Lucky it wasn't the toe.

110-120 is the US equivalent of our 220-240 voltage tolerance. Nothing strange there.

We still have them somewhere but it would be approx 5 times the size of the Nespresso and too indistrial to sit on a kitchen bench

they're still pretty big the transformers

am going to give nespresso a call and find out whether they can assist
i know what the likely response will be but always worth asking their opinion

Nespresso machines don't have a boiler, just a simple aluminium thermoblock to flash heat the water as it travels through it.

Warning - devices designed for 60~ and run on 50~ can overheat even at the correct voltage.
A coffee machine should be ok tho as it would not be run for hours on end.
you may find a solid state converter for the voltage change but not much less weight compared to a transformer, and the cost would be way out.
