Re: Connecting a German 220V kitchen appliance bought in France to a 400V outlet in C

About "I've been told that 400V in reality is a 3-phase combination of 220V current but I hardly know what a Volt is :-( ..."

The 400V outlet should have a socket that looks like the one in the picture. As you can see you can use a normal Swiss 3 pin 220v plug in this socket in the top 3 holes.

If you just have a cable coming out of the wall you will need an electrician to install the socket; should cost not more than 150CHF.
