PRODUCT DETAILS: The gorgeous electric samovar set in front of you consists of an authentic hand-painted Russian electric samovar (fully functional and ready to make tea), a handsome hand-painted tray and a beautiful hand-painted porcelain teapot. The whole set is 100 original, made and imported from Russia. Would definitely make a wonderful gift to anyone interested in Russian culture. Electric samovars use a coil to heat up water. This coil is rated for 220 volts but will work fine at 110 volts (the US standard), thus a Voltage Converter is not necessary. Radio Shack sells an outlet adapter stock 273-1406D. This will not convert the voltage but simply adapt the two large round prongs on the end of the samovar cord to fit into the two flat rectangular outlet holes used in US homes. Because you are using 110V there will be a small increase in the time needed to boil the water (this can be offset by starting with hot or warm water). To use your samovar simply pour water inside, plug it in and wait for it to boil. This will be your supply of hot water with which to make tea. The inside of the samovar has undergone a galvanic tinning (lead-free and 100 safe). IMPORTANT: Slight variations in the painting pattern are acceptable, as each and every set is hand-painted hence, unique and unparalleled. WARNING: Do not place the painted teapot on top of hot samovar. The paint will come off. Teapot may be put on top of samovar only when the latter is not in use.
