I am finally about to get my hands on a Gaggia Classic. It has come from Amazon UK. I assume it will be a 240 volt machine. True or false?

Thanks

I have seen that in posts before, so likely so.

Indeed - 240 v. Actually 230v which is the nominal voltage here too.

I didn't need to buy an  adapter to fit a NZ socket either. The power lead is not wired in - it plugs into the back of the machine with the same three socket system as many computer plugs. Of which I have plenty lying around unused. Just used one of those. 10A rating is plenty for a gadget that probably only draws 6A.
