Will Running American Appliances on Power Converters Affect My Electricity Bill?

Q: I just moved to Switzerland from California and brought the following appliances: dehydrator, KitchenAid, soy-milk maker, yogurt maker, waffle machine, bread maker, etc. I have converters in different sizes for each. My question is will the consumption of energy with the converters highly impact my electric bill?

I use my appliances quite a lot and some like the dehydrator have to run for long periods of time.
