    Can anyone tell me whether my electrical goods will work in Spain, I had in mind to take, Kenwood Chef, George Forman Grill, Sewing machine, Electric clock, bedside lamps, DVD player, will they work or will they blow up or blow the fuses? Please help.

    No problem. They will all work but you will need to change the plugs.

    Another question, Can I purchase in Spain a combined printer and scanner at roughly the same price as in the UK. I believe they are around £60.00 here

    most electronics tend to be around the same price. If not slightly more expensive. IMO

    Would a PC and a Printer work with the change of a plug?
    And what about a Baby Belling and a washing machine?

    Grateful for your help.

    Yes all would work, yet I’ve no idea what a baby belling is…? The only things you will have problems with are TV’s which are not generally compatable with the signel here, yet more of the newer models are being built with options to use in other countries.

    Had absolutely no problem with our tv’s, one was a 5 year old flat screen, or any electrical goods we bought over .
    Do remember if you bring a washing machines it is cold fill only in Spain so you need to adapt with a “Y” branch

    One thing to be careful about is fridges and freezers.
    We had bought a large new Bosch freezer shortly before moving to Spain and I had been told (in Spain) that it might not work well here. I rang Bosch and spoke to a very helpful tecnico 😆 who told me that indeed they have three specifications: one for the colder northern climates, one for the temperate ones like UK and ones for the very hot areas. He said in Almeria we should definitely need the hot spec and that our UK model might have to work too hard and therefore cost a lot and maybe wear out very soon. So we sold it in UK.
    On washing machines, it is now possible to buy hot and cold fill washing machines in Spain 😀 which is very good news as we can use solar hot water for washing. LG among others do them.
