We are often asked about using equipment on converters. Some electronics are more sensitive than others to differences. I think that the 50 cycle that most Europe uses is more of an issue than the 110 / 220 v issue.

Will the Behmor work? Probably but it is a gamble, possibly a small one though.

Go to hardware store buy correct replacement plug that matches your 220 at home, wire one leg to black, whiteand green to common leg and leave other leg on the plug unconnected.  Check it with your meter, 2 legs 220, either leg to common should be 110v,  so for $5 your machine will work.  why step it down when its already there 110v per leg.
