Moving from Canada, keep kitchen appliances or sell and buy again in CH?

No, I don't mean appliances like a stove or a fridge. I'm talking about a blender, dehydrator, stand mixer, etc.


Ours are good quality (we paid the price), and fairly recent (2-4 years.)


Of course, they only do 110V.


Would it be worth it to take them with us, and find power converters once in Switzerland? Are power converters easy to find? They need to be rather powerful, the dehydrator needs 5A, the stand mixer is rated 4A, the blender 13A...


Any thoughts/experience?

Unless it's something really specific that can't be found here it's not really worth considering. Voltage converters would be needed for a lot of things, others might work but at a lower power, and some might just explode if you plug them in directly.
