when looking for a converter you must pay attention to the wattage the
converter can handle.  Look at your bread machine to see how many watts it
draws (that information should be on a label somwhere near where the power
cord enters the housing.  As far as I remember, there are two types of
travel adapters easily available.  One will handle 50 watts so that one
would not be good for you and the other type will handle 1000 watts.  Since
I don't know what the wattage of the bread machine is, I can't tell you if
1000 watts is enough, but if it is less than 1000 watts, that converter
should do the trick.

Good luck
