Redirection

These option will allow you to either:
    Redirect when clicking on search icon
    Redirect when hitting the return key
It is possible to redirect either to the default
    Results page or WooCommerce results page
    First Matching result
    Custom URL

Redirection to custom URL

The default value should work with all themes though.
The {phrase} variable is always replaced with the actual search phrase.
This is also a great option to add additional parameters to the redirection. For example if you want to redirect to the WooCommerce product results page, you should change it to "?s={phrase}&post_type=product" like so:
