Electrical devices support for Dual input voltages.

Is it feasible to design and manufacture electrical devices which will support Dual operating input voltages
I.e 230V Ac,50 Hz & 110V AC,60Hz?

Thanks & Regards,

Yes, they already exist. However, rather than have devices that contain converters, you just have travel adapters that change it into the correct current-voltage pair accordingly:

they're super cheap

If they can work with a high-power device, such as a modern oven, they're likely to cost more than the oven.

If the device can use a switch mode PSU then it is more likely to be feasible, PC PSUs are typically capable of this. If the device uses the mains voltage directly then you would need some conversion (not a travel adaptor!). Ovens, heaters, irons and anything with a mains transformer or motor falls into this category.
a (modern) TV is the only item in your examples that I would be say was feasible.
