Hiya,

You would be better buying a UK appliance for her.

The voltage and frequency will be correct .

 

US appliances are 110 volts 60 hertz

UK appliances are 240 volts 50 hertz

 

You could use a transformer for the voltage but the frequency would still be incorrect and this could eventually lead to motor burn out.

 

There is also the warranty.

It's unlikely you'll get a worldwide warranty for the appliance.

 

Hope this is of some help

Let me know how it goes or if you need more help

Thanks
