Will my UK toaster work in Japan 2013/7/16 21:09
I am planning on taking my small 2 slice toaster to Japan, will it work through my travel adapter?

If not can I buy a cheap 2 slice pop up toaster there?

As the mains voltage in Japan is only 100 volts - less than half that in the UK - your toaster will probably just warm up the bread without toasting it, assuming it even works at all. Toaster ovens are more popular than pop-up toasters in Japan, but you can easily pick one cheaply, so it is the last thing you want to being in your luggage.

Theoretically it will work with the proper (high wattage) step up transformer, however as others have mentioned, doing so is neither practical nor economical. Cheap pop up toaster ovens are not hard to find, so I'd just buy a new one in Japan. For example:
