Do French appliances work in Brazil? (São Paulo)

Hi, looks like easy to get this information as far as many other expats are living in Brazil. But we could not find out the right answer yet...we will be moving soon to SP and we would like to bring our French white appliances such as TV, stereo, fruit mixer, washing machine, fridge, DVD player, etc and we know the problem for the 110/220V difference or the zone issue for the DVD themselves but we can not understand if our belongings could work because of the difference of the frequency btw France and Brazil: 60 vs. 50 Hz...? Is there anyone who faced this issue and who could let us know what he/she did at that time? Thanks a lot! Cheers.
