12v toaster

Has anyone heard of these? I can't seem to find them but we have a 12v splitter that I'd love to get a toaster into.

Quick internet search, I didn't see one either.

I just put them in the oven for a few minutes.

I would think they would kill your battery pretty quickly

A typical toaster draws around 1000 watts. That would be an 83 amp draw at 12VDC. You're talking huge wiring just to run a toaster. Not very practical as you'd have to run this huge copper directly from the battery.

We always use our SKILLET or flat grill top for toasting bread after we cook up our bacon and eggs etc...

Making me Hungary now...

Some things are just not a good idea to use on 12VDC APPLIANCES. Bought a 12VDC Coffee maker and several other 12VDC items one time at a truck stop. Took several hours to make a small pot of coffee... This is what I use now to pour oil into my truck haha... The only thing that survived was a couple of 12VDC FANS haha... The 12VDC APPLIANCES just draw to much DC current and take forever to work.

It is much better to pick up a small INVERTER to make 120VAC from your battery setup. We use a 600WATT PSW INVERTER (AIMS from AMAZON) for our DUTY INVERTER to do these sort of things including running our Home Entertainment setup...

Using an inverter will allow you to use a standard toaster, but it will still consume a large amount of amperage from your battery array.

Why bother with 12V? Go to any camping store or even wally world and get a toaster that you put on the stove top.

This saves your battery power for more important things.. and believe me a toaster will eat a lot of battery power.

I have one of those... It's better than nothing, but it has a difficult time adequately toasting bread to my liking... it takes forEVER!!

It works... eventually...

There are alternatives ...

When you have hook-ups or a generator, no problem. Boon-docking ... I waitressed in college and the grill chef toasted bread on the grill, sometimes cooking the egg in a cutout in the center of the toast. Alternatively, since you are 'camping', how about a cast-iron pie or Panini press over the fire?
