Also, there surely must be a company in the US building something of that kettles equivalent. Anyone seen one? I'm really interested because that thing has an internal thermostat which could make building an auto system loads cheaper than the whole REMS setup.

No sir you most certainly cannot. I am sure that an international adapter kit would work fine though, as it must convert voltage and plug style in order to work. Just make sure the adapter is rated for that high of wattage....

You need a step down transformer. It will convert plug type and voltage. Gotta watch for frequency though. Pretty sure the UK is 60hz over here its 50hz. That might overheat/burn the pot out.

Economical even for 3 gallons!!
2 gallon batchs would never be the same

It's 60hz in the US and he'd actually need a step-UP converter to up the voltage. Just sayin'
