I'm a consumer, not an electrician. This said, I do my own home wiring and am familiar with typical configurations.

This said, I do my own home wiring and am familiar with typical configurations. In North America all 110 voltage supplies were raised to 120 volt supplies years ago. Related to this change, electrical outlets in homes and domestic appliances are often rated 110-120 volts, meaning that they will operate equipment designed for both these voltages. If you are from one of the few places in the world where 110 voltage is common, I'm guessing that appliances made for the North American 120 volt market would work fine. In any case, they would not "burn out" with a lower voltage. In contrast, if your question was whether a 120 volt Nespresso machine would work on a 220 volt outlet (or vice versa), the answer is no. In fact plugging a 120 volt appliance of any kind into a 220 volt outlet is dangerous. Unless the machine is especially wired to detect and work with either voltage, it will only work on the voltage for which it was designed. see less I'm a consumer, not an electrician.

I believe it’s 110. Not sure if it is available in other voltages for other areas of the world, but in Canada it uses our normal plugs and voltage.
