    I've just read an article which stated wattage for the converter should be double the wattage of the appliance. I'm wondering if this is absolutely necessary for a juicer which will likely be used once or twice a week.

    Our 110 juicer is 900w and getting a 2000w 110 to 220v converter would cost over 100 usd, almost as much as the juicer. I'm thinking of getting a 1500w or even a 1000w converter but I don't know if it's a big risk with damaging the appliance or with safety and all that.

    The expression of energy is heat. The inverter is asking for a 50% duty cycle is all. The problem is always "hey that works great so lets add more plugs!". Get the cheap one and buy another if you fry it
